"I love the girl," says the Playboy founder, who sources say will marry her on New Year's Eve
The wedding’s back on – though it may be a good idea to save that gift receipt.
Hugh Hefner, 86, officially confirms that he is once again engaged to Crystal Harris, 26, telling his Twitter followers, “I’ve given Crystal Harris a ring. I love the girl.”
And to prove it, Harris posted photos of the big diamond sparkler, calling it “my beautiful ring.”
Neither announced a wedding date, though sources tell PEOPLE they’re planning to tie the knot at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve.
Whether that still happens remains to be seen.
This is the plan they had in 2011 – a wedding at the mansion – except that Harris called it off just days before the nuptials were scheduled to happen in front of 300 invited guests.
The onetime Playmate of the Month then ripped Hef’s bedroom skills, calling him a two-second man, to which Hefner replied, “I missed a bullet” by not marrying her.
A year later, Hefner’s “runaway bunny” bounded back to him.
