HUGH Hefner’s widow Crystal Harris is taking the next step in her relationship with her new boyfriend Nathan Levi by introducing him to her family.
The Sun can exclusively reveal Crystal, 34, and Nathan, 32, spent the weekend with her mother Lee Lovitt to celebrate her 69th birthday.
The former Playboy model organized a staycation at the iconic Roosevelt Hotel. Her sister Nikki Barmore and her brother-in-law were also in attendance.
A source told The Sun: “Her mom really likes him, Lee has always been supportive of Crystal in whatever makes her happy.”
The couple couldn’t be happier, as the insider said the spaceship engineer “loves Crystal and showers her with affection.”
The source continued: “Since the spaceX rocket landed back safely he has more time in his schedule to relax and enjoy their time together.
“They have been spending all their time with each other.”
Crystal getting approval from her mother means a lot to the travel blogger, as the two have a “really close relationship.”
The insider continued: “Crystal’s dad passed away when she was young so her mom means everything to her.
“Lee would often introduce herself as Hugh Hefner’s mother-in-law at the Playboy Mansion.”
The birthday weekend included Crystal gifting her mother with an electric boat that was formerly owned by Jamie Foxx.
The gift is for a new lake house Crystal and Lee recently bought together.
The source said of the festivities: “They went to surprise her mom with the boat then Nathan brought everyone to brunch at Geoffreys.
“Then they went back to the hotel for some pool time. Crystal then surprised her with champagne on the rooftop of the Roosevelt.”
Crystal, who has been working to stop online scammers with CelebProtect, also arranged a special El Capitan marquee for her mom that read, “Happy birthday Lee Lovitt, we love you,” during a walk down Hollywood Boulevard.
The family ended the memorable evening by visiting Hugh Hefner’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Sun exclusively reported Crystal began dating Nathan three years after the death of her beloved husband.
Crystal and Nathan went on their first overseas vacation at the Casa de Mita hotel in Punta de Mita, Mexico in July.
A source told The Sun that the pair has been dating “around four months.”
The insider said: “He’s smart, caring, and makes her feel secure. He’s very kind and gentle with her. There are so many things to like about him.
“She is the happiest she’s been in years.”
Nathan won Crystal over when he took her flying on their first date.
Nathan, who flies planes and aspires to be an astronaut, led a team of specialists who successfully launched SpaceX Dragon on March 7, 2020.
The source continued: “Nathan has been traveling with Crystal, as he’s wanting to have more of a balance between work and being with her, since he feels like he’s found someone really special.
“The fact that she’s taken him to a place where she goes to get away from it all and recharge is very indicative that she’s serious about him. Casa de Mita is her happy place.”
The Playboy mogul passed away in September 2017 at the age of 91.
Hef and Crystal had been married for five years at the time of his death.
A source previously told The Sun that Hef would have approved of the romance.
The insider added: “It’s been hard for her to find someone who measures up to the legend of Hugh Hefner, and this guy seems to be it.
“He’s an amazing guy and all her friends adore him.”
