Third time's a charm for Hugh Hefner


The second time's a charm for iconic Playboy founder Hugh Hefner and his ex-fiancee Crystal Harris. Harris, a 26-year-old Playmate of the Month in 2009, broke off a previous engagement to Hefner just before they were to be married in 2011.

The reunited couple sealed the deal, for real, with vows and a kiss on New Year's Eve. 

Harris, not pictured here, and Hefner were originally set to wed in the summer of 2011 but Harris had what she called a "change of heart" and fled five days before the ceremony. 

At that time, Playboy magazines, featuring Harris on the cover, were already printed and set for distribution--so Hefner had a "runaway bride" sticker placed across the covers. 

But last night, Hefner and Harris married at his lavish Playboy mansion in Beverly hills. 

This is Harris' first marriage and the third for Hefner. 

His first marriage to Mildred Williams ended in 1959. 

His second, to former playmate Kimberley Conrad, ended in divorce in 2010. 

Hefner has four children, two by each of his previous marriages.
