Hugh Hefner Announces New Engagement via Twitter Tweet


You know Holly Madison is crying herself to sleep tonight thinking of what could have been…

It looks like her former “puffin” Hugh Hefner has finally popped the question, but its December 2009 Playmate Crystal Harris with the ring on her finger this time.

84-year-old Hefner announced his engagement to the 24-year-old Playboy Playmate via Twitter.

How very modern for a man whose marrying a chick one third his age.

“After the movie tonight, Crystal & I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve,” he tweeted to the masses.

“When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory.”

And for all you skeptics who aren’t convinced it’s an engagement ring, Hef clarified that fact in his next tweet, “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.”

His new fiancé was quick to retweet that last message of course, just to make sure it was clear that they got engaged.

Girlfriend is not taking any chances losing any limelight on this one.

Later she tweeted, “Hef and I are TRENDING on @twitter!!!! WOW!!!” and then added “One of my amazing presents from @hughhefner Wyland is my favorite artist!,” along with an attached URL linked to an odd picture of a mermaid.

The media heavyweight has been married twice before and has four kids; his first child was born in 1952 and the last in 1991.

Funny enough, Hefner finally divorced Kimberley Conrad earlier this year, not that being married ever affected his dating life, and has only been a free man for a few months.
