Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has confirmed that he and his girlfriend, Playmate Crystal Harris, have gotten engaged, MTV reports.
Hefner, 84, posted on his Twitter page on Dec. 24: "After the movie tonight, Crystal & I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve. … When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory."
The following day, Christmas Day, Hefner added: "Yes, the ring I gave Crystal is an engagement ring. I didn’t mean to make a mystery out of it. A very merry Christmas to all."
According to the MTV report: “Harris, 24, met Hefner in 2008 at the Playboy Mansion during one of the mag’s famous Halloween bashes. The model/singer, who was Playboy’s December 2009 Playmate and served as 2010’s Miss January, also took to her Twitter to talk about their news. In response to well-wishes from the likes of former Playmate (and Hefner ex) Kendra Wilkinson, Harris noted, ‘Hef and I are Trending on @twitter:)’”
It will be the third marriage for Hefner, who was previously dating twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon while he was going out with Harris, the story notes.
