CHICAGO (AP) – Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner says he’s gotten engaged again.
Hefner said in a Twitter message early Saturday that he’d given a ring to girlfriend and Playmate Crystal Harris, saying she burst into tears.
“This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory,” he wrote.
To clear up confusion over whether the ring was simply a Christmas gift, Hefner later tweeted: “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.”
This would be the third marriage for the 84-year-old. He divorced Playmate Kimberly Conrad last year.
