Hugh Hefner, who died peacefully in his Los Angeles home on Wednesday at the age of 91, took steps to ensure that his wife Crystal Harris, 31, would be taken care of after his passing TMZ reported. The Playboy founder reportedly purchased a 5,900 square foot home in the Hollywood Hills in 2013. The deed for the property is held a trust that is that 31-year-old Crystal controls. The home boasts 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and an infinity pool and is worth a reported $7 million.

TMZ went on to reveal that Hef also left his wife $5 million; an amount determined in a prenuptual agreement the couple signed before they married on New Year’s Eve in 2012. The ceremony followed a failed engagement. Crystal called their first wedding off just days before it was supposed to take place.

Hugh who was 40 years Crystal’s senior, managed to convince the blonde bombshell to reconcile. Perhaps the prenup played a part in what led Crystal to agree to finally marry the famous magazine publisher. She wore a strapless pale pink gown for their wedding, which took place at the Playboy Mansion. It was the first marriage for the bride, and the third for the groom.

The icon married Millie Williams in 1949. The pair stayed together for about ten years and had two children together, a daughter Christie Hefner and a son David Hefner. Hugh and Millie had been childhood sweethearts.

Thirty years later Hugh married his second wife, 1989 Playmate of the Year Kimberly Conrad. They also had two sons together, Marston and Cooper Hefner. Christie and Hugh were separated for 11 years before he filed for divorce just after their youngest son turned 18.
