84-year-old Hugh Hefner got engaged to his 24-year-old girlfriend Crystal Harris on December 24th, and now the Playboy founder has opened up on their relationship, and the proposal plan which made the engagement special. According to Hugh, he put the engagement ring in to a Little Mermaid themed wind-up box –  The Little Mermaid is Crystal’s favourite Disney film.  Hugh revealed his plan:

“I got her a little music box with the Mermaid theme to it, and it just looked like the perfect size and the perfect place to be the ring box. So when she started unwrapping that gift, I reached over and wound it so it was playing music while she discovered what was inside.”

Crystal says that the moment was extremely special to her:

“We were up in the bedroom and my favourite movie is The Little Mermaid, so he had the ring in a Little Mermaid box, and that was so special. I opened it and the first thing he said to me was, ‘I hope it fits!'”

Hugh insists that the big age gap between the couple hasn’t been an issue, and they are completely devoted to each other:

“(She) is so totally devoted. Her priorities are pretty much our relationship, No. 1 and No. 2 and 3, and you don’t always find that. Despite the age disparity, the truth of the matter is we have a great deal in common, we really complement one another, we have a wonderful time together, and I love her.”
