Looks like Hef is back with his runaway bride, Crystal Harris.

Just as the rumor mill began to buzz that 86-year-old playboy founder, Hugh Hefner, got back together with Crystal Harris, 26, she confirmed the oh-so-true rumors via Twitter.

“Yes @hughhefner and I are back together,” she tweeted. “Yes I am his #1 girl again. Yes we are happy. Hope that clears up any confusion! Xo.”

The Playboy mogul said the couple’s reconciliation, which is just about a year after their cancelled wedding, wasn’t that much of a shocker.

“Getting back together with Crystal Harris shouldn’t be a big surprise, since I have a history of remaining close to former girlfriends,” he tweeted, adding, “Shera & my other Mansion girlfriends welcomed Crystal here at dinner on Tuesday night, before playing games together.”

Hef most likely is literally referring actual board games, since he recently tweeted he had been playing backgammon.

Apparently, it was Hef’s secretary Mary, who appeared on Hef’s reality show, that brought the two together again.

“It’s Mary O’Conner that brought Crystal Harris back,” he explained to Wonderwall. “Crystal was miserable & said so. Mary told Crystal to write & tell me, which she did.”

Now that Crystal has reunited with Hef, she get’s to spend more time with Charlie, the dog they adopted together. When they broke up Hef agreed to let Crystal keep the ring and the Bentley, but Hef kept the King Charles Cavelier.

“Home is where the heart is,” tweeted Harris, “Happy to be back home at the Playboy Mansion with @hughhefner and our puppy Charlie. I missed all the love and laughs.”

Do you think Hef will ask Crystal to marry him again?
