Hugh Hefner is ringing in the new year as a married man.
The 86-year-old Playboy founder tied the knot with 26-year-old girlfriend Crystal Harris tonight at--where else--the Playboy Mansion in front of a select group of family and friends, reports Us Weekly.
"Today is the day I become Mrs. Hugh Hefner. Feeling very happy, lucky, and blessed," the missus wrote.
Though Harris spared no gory detail in explaining her decision to break up with Hef in June 2011, when asked more recently why she called the whole thing off just days before their wedding, she explained that it just wasn't their time yet.
"I moved into the Mansion really young. I was 21 or 22," she told Us Weekly at her bridal shower, held Dec. 19 at Femme Fatale, the lingerie store and party venue she opened with a friend in Studio City, Calif. "I needed to explore out there and take the time away. The time away really helped make me realize that where I'm meant to be is here with Hef. Hef cares for me so much, and I care for him so much. We love each other. I felt like I needed to be home and this is home for me."
This is Hefner's third marriage. He has four children, two with each ex-wife.
On Dec. 4, the publishing icon let it slip to a room full of college kids that he was off to get a marriage license after class, where he was a guest speaker that day.
We're going to bet those kids learned a lot.
