He has an older sister named Christie who is 65 years of age now. Mildred was Hugh’ first wife and they had married in 1949. But their marriage survived only for a decade and they divorced in 1959. Hugh had opened about his sexual experience and his first wife. He had said:
“I had literally saved myself for my wife, but after we had sex she told me that she’d had an affair. That was the most devastating moment in my life. My wife was more sexually experienced than I was. After that, I always felt in a sense that the other guy was in bed with us, too.”
David Hefner-his another stepfamily
Hugh remarried in 1989 and his second wife was actress cum model Kimberley Conrad and she was the Playmate of Playboy for the month of January 1988. She was also crowned Playmate of the year in 1989. This marriage lasted for less than a decade and the couple separated in 1998. Their official divorce only came in 2010.
Hugh had two children with his second wife and they are Marston, 28 and Cooper, 27. Cooper is managing Playboy Enterprises and is its Chief Creative Officer. Hugh then married Crystal Harris and had no children with her.
Mildred Williams and her remarriage
Mildred had remarried a man called Edwin Gunn after her marriage with Hugh collapsed. Edwin adopted David and Christie and their surnames were accordingly changed. But Edwin and Mildred separated later and David and Christie got back to their previous surname of Hefner after that.
Talking about how their family was, Christie had spoken a few months after Hugh’s death in September 2017 at 91:
“We’re fortunate in my family because we really have three families: my brother, David, and me; the two boys, Cooper and Marston, from my dad’s second marriage; and my dad’s wife, Crystal. There’s huge mutual respect and love among all of us, so that’s a kind of funny support system, even though everybody has a different kind of grief.”
