Hugh Hefner

Ever wonder what happened to wife number one? Meet Millie and check out pictures and videos below! Don’t break a hip!

As a biography, Mildred (Millie) Williams was born on March 10, 1926 in Chicago, Illinois so her age is 84. Williams met Hugh shortly after high school at a party, and the couple were completely smitten. While she attended the University of Illinois, Hefner deployed with the Army. The couple kept in touch through love letters and following his safe return, Mildred made a startling confession. She admitted to an affair she had while he was away. Despite her infidelity, Hefner and Williams married on June 25, 1949. Together, they have two children. Christie was born on November 8, 1952 and David was born on August 30, 1955. They later divorced in 1959, ten years later.

It’s a bummer to believe that Mildred could have cheated on Hef while he was away serving for his country. This definitely could have left a huge impression on they way he views women. In fact, the author of Mr. Playboy, a biography written by Steven Watts, says that Hugh “loves them, he adores them, but there’s that little edge of sort of keeping an eye open at the same time.”

But don’t let old age fool you, I mean look at Hef! Even though their holy matrimony was short lived, it seems as if the Playboy himself has never had a problem with the ladies. He’s doing things that most seniors couldn’t! Life for Hugh hasn’t slowed down, not even with age!

Instead, he gives the golden years new meaning! Since we all know that Hef is engaged to be married to his 24-year old playboy bunny babe, according to reports, a date has been set! Crystal Harris and the 84-year old will be tying the knot this summer, June 18th.

It is said that the wedding will be held out in the backyard of the mansion, in a very intimate setting.

The couple’s wedding party includes: Hefner’s brother as his best man, and his two sons as his groomsmen, Crystal’s best friend as her maid of honor, and her two sisters as her bridesmaids.

I wonder if Mildred Williams will get an invitation? After all, she was his first wife. Tell us what you think about Hugh Hefner and his new bride to be in the comment box. Also, be sure to check out photos and a video clip below.
