Hugh Hefner’s youngest son Cooper and his wife, Harry Potter actress Scarlett Byrne, have welcomed twins
Hugh Hefner’s youngest son Cooper and his wife Scarlett Byrne celebrate the arrival of their twins.
Harry Potter actress Scarlett announced the news on her Instagram page on Tuesday.
Mum Scarlett wrote: “My heart grew doubly this weekend as Cooper and I welcomed our daughters Marigold Adele Hefner and Blossom Pearl Hefner into the world.
“Our home is full of love with our three daughters and we couldn’t be happier.”
The couple married in 2019 and had their first daughter, Betsy Rose, who is now 15 months old.
They shared a statement at the time: “We are overwhelmed with excitement to announce that our daughter Betsy Rose Hefner has arrived.
“We look forward to being home and spending time as family over the coming days and weeks.”
They announced they were expanding their family in November last year.
“Scarlett and I will be welcoming two new family members this spring. We couldn’t be happier as we await the arrival of our twins,” Cooper said, before “wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving!”
Their first daughter, Betsy, was named after Cooper’s late grandmother, Betsy Aldridge-Conrad, who passed away in July 2020.
He shared, “My grandmother meant the world to Scarlett and me.”
Cooper followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the family business at the age of 21, later becoming Chief of Global Partnerships and Chief Creative Officer of Playboy Enterprises.
Cooper’s late father has recently come under fire after former Playboy bunnies Karissa and Kristina Shannon revealed grim details of his bedtime ritual to the Daily Mirror.

They moved in with Hefner and his friends and were paid $1,000 a week to star on the hit reality show Girls Next Door, which documents the lives of the women who live in the $100 million mansion.
Kristina said they were regularly given drugs as part of Hefner’s bizarre bedtime routine before being forced into group sex with the retiree and a bevy of other women.
Karissa said they were told the drugs — including weed and quaaludes — would help them feel more comfortable.

“He brought silk pajamas from Italy and we put them on. He pulled out this big pill like the kind a horse would take. It was Quaalude, and we found out he was using it all the time.”
“He told us that the medication would help with our anxiety. We smoked weed.
“We felt frozen at first, but after a while the pill made us loose and fuzzy,” Karissa said as she confessed he would touch her while under the influence.
