Hugh, 84, took to his twitter page over the weekend to announce his engagement to the E! network’s Girls Next Door star. Crystal is only 24-years-old (despite looking like she could easily pass for her mid-thirties) and 60 years Hugh’s junior.
“After the movie tonight, Crystal & I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve,” Hugh tweeted. “When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory.”
To further clarify things, Hugh added, “Yes, the ring I gave Crystal is an engagement ring. I didn’t mean to make a mystery out of it. A very merry Christmas to all.”
This will make the third marriage for Hugh. In 2009, he filed for divorce from his second wife, former Playmate Kimberly Conrad, after the two separated in 1998 (they have two sons together – Marston, 20, and Cooper, 19). Hugh was also previously married to Mildred Williams; their marriage ended in divorce in 1959. Hugh and Mildred have two grown children – Christie, 58, and David, 55.
Here’s to hoping former Playmate and Girls Next Door star Holly Madison, 31, who dated Hugh for 7 years and publicly stated on numerous occasions that she hoped to marry him and have his babies, only to have to end the relationship because Hugh told her he never wanted to get married or have children again, is being kept away from all sharp objects on this beautiful Monday morning.
