The Truth About David Hefner – Hugh Hefner’s Son

In life, some people are born poor and have to work really hard to get out of poverty while others have been born into immense affluence and do not have to work so hard to attain some measure of wealth; this is because they can simply bank on their family’s fortune to rise through the ranks of life’s elite groups. David Hefner is one man who is definitely in this second category of people.

David Hefner is one of the sons of Hugh Hefner, the world-renowned owner of the globally famous Playboy magazine.

David Hefner’s Biography

David Hefner was born on the 30th of August, 1955. Although Playboy magazine was just 2 years old when David was born, the publication was already pumping in enough revenue for him to be classified as someone who was “born into wealth”.

For many years, the Playboy magazine ruled the world of periodic publications worldwide majorly because of the provocative images of naked women splashed around its pages. Naturally, people were very interested in the Playboy magazine because of these sultry images and so the magazine gained enormous popularity globally. In fact, the Playboy rabbit logo later became one of the most popular and most instantly recognizable brands in the whole world. It was into this empire that David was born.

David’s mother was Mildred Williams who was Hugh Hefner’s college sweetheart and first wife. The couple were married in 1949 and then got divorced in 1959, just about 4 years after David was born. The young man grew up with his family in the US.

It is noteworthy that despite being his father’s first son, David is one of the least talked about among Hugh Hefner’s children. Over the years, he has managed to stay away from the public eye. Very little is known about his affairs and what he does with himself.

There have been conflicting reports about what David Hefner does professionally. He is reportedly the owner of his own computer company which he has managed over the years. However, some reports also have it that David is just an independent film computer graphics specialist. Whichever is the correct answer, the interesting thing is that he started a career that was independent of his father’s influence, unlike his other siblings who are involved with the Playboy Enterprise in one way or the other.

His Relationship With His Father Hugh Hefner

David and his father, Hugh Hefner

David Hefner’s father, Hugh, was an American magazine publisher who founded the globally famous Playboy magazine and was its editor-in-chief. The senior Hefner made a lot of fame and wealth after he started publishing his magazine. This was because the publication was filled with sensational articles and glamour photographs which displayed naked or semi-naked women and as a result, drew a lot of curious eyes to it.

Hugh Hefner, who was born on the 9th of April 1926, died on the 27th of September, 2017 at the age of 91 years. During his lifetime, he inadvertently cultivated the persona of a notorious womanizer who simply loved women. However, Hefner has always talked about being a responsible man who loved his family.

Hugh was married three times in his lifetime; first, in 1949, he married Mildred Williams, who he described as his childhood sweetheart, but the pair got divorced in 1959. He then got married to Kimberley Conrad, a former Playboy model, in 1989. They were together till 2010 when they went their separate ways. As expected, the iconic magazine publisher did not stay unmarried; in 2012, he got married to Crystal Harris who he was still married to when he died in 2017.

Not much is known about the relationship between David Hefner and his father, Hugh but it is widely believed that both men did not have a strained relationship while Hugh was alive. In 2012, Hugh shared a photo with David on his verified Twitter page where he boasts of more than 1 million followers.

David Hefner’s Siblings and Family Life

David has three siblings; the eldest of them is Christine Hefner. David is the second child and eldest son, he is followed by Marston Hefner and then Cooper Hefner. Both Marston and Cooper Hefner are David’s half-siblings, having being born by his stepmother, Kimberley Conrad.

Christine was married to William A. Marovitz, a former Illinois State Senator. However, the couple got divorced in 2013 without having any children. Cooper is engaged to Scarlett Byrne, an English actress. However, there are no details about whether or not Marston Hefner is currently in a relationship.

David Hefner’s siblings have a role to play in the Playboy Enterprise especially Christie and Cooper. Christie served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Playboy Enterprises from 1988 to January 2009. Also, Cooper took over from his father as Chief Creative Officer in 2016.

On his own part, David has pretty much not had dealings with the Playboy brand. He has very much been on his own and there is also very little or no detail about whether or not he has a wife or partner.

The siblings get along very well; shortly after their father’s death in 2017, they all came together to dine together at Katsuya in Brentwood, vowing to stick together and carry on their father’s legacy.
