Longtime bachelor Hugh Hefner has announced that he is engaged to his girlfriend, Playboy model Crystal Harris. We are certain Holly Madison is thrilled for the couple!

Hugh Hefner, the 84-year-old founder of Playboy magazine, tweeted that he is going to marry for a third time.

In a message to his Twitter followers on Christmas Day, Hefner announced that he had given Crystal Harris, 24, a ring!

“Yes, the ring I gave Crystal is an engagement ring,” he confirmed later on Twitter.

Hefner’s fiance, Crystal Harris, was Playmate of the Month in December 2009.

Hugh has been married twice before. His first marriage was to Mildred Williams in 1949, and he wed Kimberley Conrad in 1989.

The Playboy founder was previously serious with Holly Madison, but she left the Playboy Mansion after she realized he would never marry her.

Last April Hugh Hefner revealed he and Crystal Harris had “become exclusive.”

“When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears,” Hefner revealed.

“This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory.”

Harris told her Twitter followers: “The most memorable Christmas ever.”
