If anyone's okay with Crystal Hefner being married to a man three times her age, it's her parents.
Her mom and dad are not just supportive of her relationship with Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner, they also enjoy the chance to reap the benefits of her lavish life.
"My parents come up here pretty much every weekend," Crystal, 26, told PEOPLE on Thursday at the Playboy Mansion, just before her husband, 87, announced Raquel Pomplun as 2013's Playmate of the Year.

Age is nothing but a number for Hugh Hefner, who isn't showing signs of slowing down after turning 87 on Tuesday.
Part of what might keep him youthful? Having Crystal Harris, 26, as his wife.
"I'm having the time of my life," Harris gushed on Thursday to KTLA. "He's an amazing man, such a romantic. For Valentine's Day, he was like, 'What kind of flowers do you like? Do you like roses? Do you like mixed flowers?' I like everything, so he got me everything … He's just so sweet."

The wedding's back on – though it may be a good idea to save that gift receipt.
Hugh Hefner, 86, officially confirms that he is once again engaged to Crystal Harris, 26, telling his Twitter followers, "I've given Crystal Harris a ring. I love the girl."
And to prove it, Harris posted photos of the big diamond sparkler, calling it "my beautiful ring."
Neither announced a wedding date, though sources tell PEOPLE they're planning to tie the knot at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles on New Year's Eve.

The runaway bunny's back.
Crystal Harris, who left Hugh Hefner at the altar with a parting shot about his bedroom skills – calling him two-second man – is back at the Playboy mansion, and all seems good – for now.
"Yes I am his #1 girl again," she Tweeted on Friday, confirming reports of a reconciliation. "Yes we are happy. Hope that clears up any confusion! Xo."
Harris, 26, a onetime Playmate of the Month, and Hefner, 86, broke up in dramatic style in June 2011 with Harris calling off their wedding just days before the nuptials with 300 invited guests.

Shortly after Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris ended their engagement in June, the Playboy mogul said Harris let him keep Charlie, their shared Cavalier King Charles spaniel.
But now, Hefner, 85, says he and his former fiancée, 25, are still going back and forth about who gets permanent ownership of the pooch.
"We both love the puppy," Hefner told PEOPLE on Thursday at the Playboy Mansion in L.A. "I told her if she wants to keep the ring and the Bentley, then maybe I can keep the puppy. I [hope] we will work it out."

The he said-she said continues.
It seemed like the war of words ended in July between Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris after the Playboy founder said his former fiancée "lied" when she told Howard Stern they only had sex once – and that it lasted "like two seconds."
But months later, Hefner, 85, is elaborating on Harris's comments, claiming that the couple, whose wedding she called off in June, "had sex once a week" when they were together.
"We had sex with her and a girlfriend," Hefner tells The Hollywood Reporter. "We had sex the first night that we met with another girl, and it was such a nice relationship that I kept them both over for a weekend."

Kendra Wilkinson remembers landing in hot water for exposing her days as Hugh Hefner's girlfriend in her tell-all Sliding Into Home – but the former Girls Next Door star believes her comments were far less hurtful than those of Hef's former wife-to-be, Crystal Harris.
"Her situation is a lot more harsh," Wilkinson, 26, told PEOPLE at Monday's NBCUniversal Press Tour All-Star party in L.A. "She was about to get married to him. I would have never agreed to get married to him."
Even though Wilkinson's book laid bare her sex-life with the Playboy mogul, 85, she says she would never go out of her way to hurt Hef the way Harris, 24, did when she gossiped with Howard Stern last week about Hefner's sexual prowess – or lack thereof.
