Crystal Hefner, the widow of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, has a new love that's got her on cloud 9.
Paparazzi snapped photos (see them here) of the 34-year-old cozying up to Nathan Levi at the Casa de Mita resort in Mexico this week. Images show the couple kissing, cuddling on the beach and dancing to live music.
Crystal's relationship with Levi, who has a pilot's license, has been flying under the radar for several months.
"Hef would approve of her romance," a source told Page Six. "Since his death she has been mourning and soul searching and traveling the world. 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."
Page Six reports Crystal and Levi have been dating for four months — he reportedly won her over by taking her flying.
Crystal's friends are already fans of Levi, who is a spaceship engineer by trade.
Levi, 32, is "an amazing guy and all her friends adore him," a source said.
This is Crystal's first public romance since Hugh passed away in September 2017 at the age of 91. While the model hasn't commented on the romance or gone "Instagram official" with Levi, she noticeably used the word "we" while captioning photos on Instagram from a recent vacation in Wyoming. She's also posted several videos to her Instagram Story that show her flying in a plane — presumably being flown by her new beau.
On Thursday, as word of the romance spread, she posted a quote to her Instagram Story that read, "If someone makes you happy, make them happier."
