Hugh Hefner appears to be giving love a third chance.
The 86-year-old Playboy tycoon is once again engaged to 26-year-old Crystal Harris, his ex-fiancee who famously called off the couple’s June 2011 wedding just five days prior to the scheduled big day, according to TMZ.
The on-again pair are reportedly set to tie the knot at the Playboy Mansion on New Year’s Eve. Unlike their previous plans to say “I do” in front of 300 guests, Hefner and Harris will purportedly exchange vows during an intimate gathering in front of close friends and family members. Harris, who rekindled her relationship with Hefner this past June, is said to be finally ready for matrimony.
According to TMZ’s sources, the blond beauty feels the time she spent on her own following the breakup taught her “how to be independent and stand on her own two feet.”
Since Harris moved back into the Playboy Mansion earlier this year, the reunited couple is reportedly ready to walk down the aisle.
Harris met Hugh Hefner on Halloween 2008.She was attending a party at the Playboy mansion, to which she had been invited by a friend.
