Who Are Hugh Hefner's Kids?

Hugh Hefner once claimed to have slept with over 1,000 women in his lifetime (per 9Honey). Despite his infamous playboy reputation (and Playboy corporate empire), Insider reports that Hefner was married three times and had four children. In 1949, Hefner married his first wife, college sweetheart Mildred Williams (via Heavy). They went on to have two children, Christie and David, before divorcing in 1959. Hefner had countless girlfriends but would not marry again until 1989, this time to Kimberley Conrad, who at the time was Playmate of the year.

According to People, she was 26 and he was 63. They eventually had two sons, Marston and Cooper. Although they split in 1998, the couple didn't divorce until 2010 due to Conrad's desire to remain legally married for the sake of their children.

Hefner's last marriage was to Crystal Harris in 2012 (per The U.S. Sun). They had no children and were married until his death. Although Hefner died in 2017, his legacy and his children live on. Some of them have remained out of the spotlight, while others joined their father in working for Playboy.

One of Hefner's sons went on to become Playboy's creative officer

According to the U.S. Sun, Hefner's four kids have pretty big age gaps between them. His oldest, daughter Christine, was born in 1952. His son David was born in 1955. As for the younger Hefners, Marston was born in 1990, while Cooper was born in 1991 (via SuperbHub). In a report at the time of Hugh's death in 2017, Insider related that not much is known about David. It's thought he has his own computer consulting firm and, as Biographypedia posted earlier this year, has worked in film production. Christie, however, followed in her father's footsteps and began to work for Playboy in 1975. She later became president of Playboy enterprises before becoming chairman and CEO in 1988. It's a position Christie held until she stepped down from the role in 2009. She was named one of Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women in the World back in 2005.

Marston's twitter bio states that he's a writer. Back in 2012, he was arrested for attacking his Playmate girlfriend, Claire Sinclair (per the Daily Mail). He was later sentenced to a one-year domestic violence program.

Cooper (above), now 30, is perhaps the family's golden boy. He was formerly the chief creative officer for Playboy Enterprises. Per CNN,he left Playboy to create his own media company. In 2019, he joined the Air Force, and in 2020, he announced an exploratory campaign for running for the California senate. He and his wife, Scarlett Byrne Hefner, are expecting twins in 2022. They have a 15-month-old daughter, reports E! Online.
