Hugh Hefner: Playboy magazine founder marries ‘runaway bride’

- Associated Press - Tuesday, January 1, 2013

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hugh Hefner is celebrating the new year as a married man once again.

The 86-year-old Playboy magazine founder exchanged vows with his "runaway bride," Crystal Harris, at a private Playboy Mansion ceremony on New Year's Eve. Miss Harris, a 26-year-old Playmate of the Month in 2009, broke off a previous engagement to Mr. Hefner just before they were to be married in 2011.

Playboy said on Tuesday that the couple celebrated at a New Year's Eve party at the mansion with guests that included comic Jon Lovitz, Gene Simmons of Kiss and baseball star Evan Longoria.

The bride wore a strapless gown in soft pink; Mr. Hefner, a black tux. Mr. Hefner has been married twice before but lived the single life between 1959 and 1989.
