Hugh Hefner is ringing in the new year as a married man.

The 86-year-old Playboy founder tied the knot with 26-year-old girlfriend Crystal Harris tonight at—where else—the Playboy Mansion in front of a select group of family and friends, Playboy confirms to E! News.

The bride, who is now going by Crystal Hefner on Twitter, posted photos earlier in the evening of the wedding set-up, including a close-up of the flowers lining the altar inside.

"Today is the day I become Mrs. Hugh Hefner. Feeling very happy, lucky, and blessed," the missus wrote.

Hef's New Year's Eve nuptials come about a year and a half after they were first supposed to swap vows—and less than a month after Harris revealed that they were reengaged.

Though Harris spared no gory detail in explaining her decision to break up with Hef in June 2011, when asked more recently why she called the whole thing off just days before their wedding, she explained that it just wasn't their time yet.

What do your favorite TV characters need to do more of in 2013?

"I moved into the Mansion really young. I was 21 or 22," she told Us Weekly at her bridal shower, held Dec. 19 at Femme Fatale, the lingerie store and party venue she opened with a friend in Studio City, Calif. "I needed to explore out there and take the time away. The time away really helped make me realize that where I'm meant to be is here with Hef. Hef cares for me so much, and I care for him so much. We love each other. I felt like I needed to be home and this is home for me."

Her fiancé even got her a brand new sparkly engagement ring after she sold the 3.39-carat diamond he gave her the first time around.

This is Hefner's third marriage. He has four children, two with each ex-wife.

On Dec. 4, the publishing icon let it slip to a room full of college kids that he was off to get a marriage license after class, where he was a guest speaker that day.

We're going to bet those kids learned a lot.

Now I ain't sayin' she a gold digger (When I'm in Need)...

I can't say I would want to be Hugh Hefner. He's rich, he's famous, but he's got a girl that everyone suspects is a gold digger.

Pre-nup without a doubt. Why does Hef keep wedding these Blonde Bimbos with the store bought Ta-tas? He clearly has thousands of them lined up just for the chance to hang around.

Anyways, Congrats Hef, you are an inspiration to us all!

Oh Lord, will it ever end? I'm with you on this one, TL.

All the power to them but I'm rather skeptical as to whether or not this is "true love" or the love of money and fame. Kind of makes a mockery of marriage in my mind, but who am I to say?

A friend was good friends with Kimberly and attended that wedding...she was convinced that it was for the right reasons despite my skepticism. So maybe I am wrong (although that one didn't last forever). I'm pretty sure that, deep down, these young, beautiful women are seeking something much different than wedded bliss with someone their great grandfather's age. And it's just another notch in Hef's belt.

Anyone know of any real-life marriage success stories where one partner is 3x+ the age of the other? I don't, and I wouldn't bet on this one being any different.

Good luck Hef, enjoy your marriage with someone who's old enough to be your granddaughter.

So, what does it matter. They both go into it with their eyes wide open and they each get what they want. No one is fooling themselves. How many marriages fail that are based on "honest intentions?"

I wonder what kind of financial perks are in it for the wife? Clearly there is a prenup, so there has to be some sort of financial benefit for these girls to hang around. Obviously a rent free life of luxury for the duration of the marriage/his life, but I wonder what sort of monthly allowance or savings these girls get. Must be good whatever it is....
