Hugh Hefner and his fiance Crystal Harris have applied for their marriage licence ahead of their New Year's Eve wedding, which was recently rescheduled after she called off their last wedding in June 2011 just five days before it was set to take place
The couple recently rescheduled their wedding and will tie the knot on New Year's Eve just months after the aspiring singer left the Playboy mogul shocked when she called off their wedding just five days before they were due to marry in June 2011.
But a source told gossip website TMZ.com that they are determined to spend the rest of their lives together and were seen at a courthouse in Beverly Hills yesterday morning (04.12.12) where they filled in the necessary paperwork in order to make their upcoming ceremony legal.
The couple moved back in together last May after Crystal, 26, begged Hugh, 86, for forgiveness and are now preparing to wed at the Playboy mansion in Los Angeles.
According to insiders, the couple has only invited close friends and family members to celebrate their special day later this month.
They are said to have completely resolved the problems, which previously led to the model getting ''cold feet''.
Speaking after she backed out of the wedding last year, Crystal explained she knew it wasn't the right step for her.
She said: ''I got cold feet. Over time I just realised it wasn't for me, it was all happening so fast.
''I actually spoke to Hef about it before I left and we both came to the decision that getting married wasn't the best for either of us.''
Crystal also admitted they didn't have sex very often.
She said: ''There was couch cuddling, movie nights. Hef's like a big kid.''
Asked if the relationship was physical, she added: ''In the beginning, but after a while it just wasn't the most important thing to him.''
