LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- A bunny has returned to the burrow.
Crystal Harris, who famously called off her wedding to Hugh Hefner just days before the planned ceremony last June, has rekindled her romance with the Playboy magnate.
“Yes @hughhefner and I are back together,” the 26-year-old Tweeted on Friday. “Yes I am his #1 girl again. Yes we are happy. Hope that clears up any confusion! Xo”
The Playmate also said she was thrilled to be reunited with the couple’s dog — a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
“Happy to be back home at the Playboy Mansion with @hughhefner and our puppy Charlie,” she added. “I missed all the love and laughs.”
Hef, 86, also confirmed the happy news, Tweeting, “Getting back together with Crystal Harris shouldn’t be a big surprise, since I have a history of remaining close to former girlfriends.
“It’s Mary O’Conner that brought Crystal Harris back. Crystal was miserable & said so,” he added, referencing Mary, his longtime assistant/secretary. “Mary told Crystal to write & tell me, which she did.”
Hef and Crystal initially announced their engagement in December 2010, but split in June 2011.
The men’s mag founder shared the breakup news via Twitter at the time, Tweeting, “The wedding is off. Crystal has had a change of heart.
“The breakup is a heart breaker, but better now than after the marriage,” he later added.
The wedding would have marked the third marriage for Hef.
