San Diego woman to become the future Mrs. Hefner

Posted: Updated:

(CBS 8) - A local woman is now engaged to Playboy CEO Hugh Hefner.

The 84-year-old millionaire, who has been married twice before, popped the big question to Crystal Harris on Christmas Eve.

Harris, 24, attended La Jolla High School and San Diego State University, majoring in Psychology.

Harris described how she and Hefner met, "Hef and I met at his Halloween party in 2008, and I was in a French maid outfit. I met him, he invited me to hang out in a cabana and it just went from there."

The Playboy founder proposed on Christmas Eve and announced via Twitter, "When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory."

Harris says, "Life with Hef is amazing. Living at the mansion is like a dream."

In a "News of the World" clip on YoutTube, Harris talked about the 60 year age gap, "A lot of people talk about the age difference between Hef and I but I don't see the age difference at all. If anything, I feel like I'm the adult and Hef is the kid."

Though she now enjoys living a life of luxury in the Playboy Mansion, Harris says its not wealth that attracts her to the 84-year-old magazine mogul, "I would say I'm not after Hef for his money. I have my own career going, I make my own means through my music career I've started. I love Hef and I love being with him. I'm a driven person and I try my own things and I make my own money."

Harris also describes their home life together. "We hang out a lot, go on walks around the grounds. He is a mad movie buff. We watch movies 3 times a week, Friday, Saturday and Sundays. Friday and Saturday are classic movies, and Sundays are new blockbusters from theaters."

Harris says she didn't have her sights set on marrying Hefner, who has two ex-wives and has had countless girlfriends through the years. Hefner married his first wife, Mildred Williams, in 1949 and married Playmate of the Year Kimberley Conrad in 1989. He had two children with each.

Harris says, "I don't want to pressure him. Whatever happens happens."

No wedding date has been set. It will be Harris' first marriage.
