Marston Hefner’s Biography
One of the more reserved offspring of the Hefner family, Marston Hefner was born sometime in 1990 in Los Angeles, California. At the time, his father was married to his mother, Kimberly Conrad and he grew up in the Playboy mansion, where he spent the first eight years of his life.
Much of his education history is unknown but while he hasn’t taken after the sexual freedom lifestyle of his father, he shares his passion for social causes and during his time as a student, he was a leader of the Human Rights Student Task Force.
As for other aspects of his life, Marston Hefner, who maintains his reserved lifestyle by staying away from the media has been involved in a couple of endeavours such as being a writer. He has published a book, under the name, Marston Glenn, titled Bleed.
His other notable endeavours also include gaming, a fact he is quite proud of, as shown by his decision to have ‘Writer and Gamer’ on his social media profile on Twitter.
At the time of his death, Marston Hefner’s father – Hugh Hefner, had an estimated net worth of $50 million, which was in line with the comfort and affluence that defined Marston’s life growing up.
After his death, he was poised to inherit a fraction of some of his father’s wealth, which included the sale of the Playboy Mansion for $100 million.

As for children, Marston Hefner is not known to have any thus far. In fact, in direct opposition to his father’s lifestyle, he has maintained a simple and quiet life away from the parade of multiple women.
Having once said in an interview that he has been surrounded by beautiful women for a majority of his life, chasing women for their beauty is no longer an appealing factor for him but rather he is more interested in their personality. A combination of his reserved nature and his prior experience with women has led to a limited number of relationships he has been involved in.
So far, Marston has only been known to be in a relationship with Claire Sinclair, whom he dated back in 2012. The couple called it quits after a domestic violence incident led to the end of their relationship. The incident also led to Marston Hefner being sent into the domestic violence program for 52 weeks and was placed on a three-year restraining order from Claire.
Since then, little has been mentioned about Marston in terms of relationships. However, at the moment, he does not have any known children.
