Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner just got engaged to his girlfriend and Playmate Crystal Harris.

The 84-year-old made the announcement on his Twitter page . He said that his 24-year-old fiancé burst in to tears when he popped the question.

Hefner tweeted after midnight on Christmas day, "After the movie tonight, Crystal & I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve."

He clarified that it was a proposal in a later tweet.

"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," he tweeted.
