David Hefner is the eldest child and second son of popular American men’s lifestyle and entertainment magazine publisher Hugh Marston Hefner. David’s father Hugh founded the American magazine, Playboy in 1953 and he also served as editor-in-chief of the magazine.

Just like other celebrity kids, David also rose to fame because of his parents (his father) and people are really curious to know and learn about him.

Especially after Hugh’s death in 2017, people have their eyes all over his family so naturally more than ever people are eager to learn how David is doing, where he is, and if he is married and has kids, his net worth, and few more things related to him, which obviously we will write about in this article.

David is the first son of Hugh Hefner

Hugh the founder of Playboy magazine had four children and among them, David is his firstborn son. He was born on August 30, 1955, so according to his date of birth, his zodiac sign is Virgos. As mentioned he is the son of Hugh Hefner and his first wife Mildred who is popularly known as Millie Williams.

His father founded Playboy magazine just two years and I think that it is safe to say that he had an interesting and good childhood. Unfortunately, we don’t know much about David because he keeps himself and his life very private and away from any media or limelight.

And as mentioned above, Hugh had other three kids other than David. Hugh’s other children are Christie, Cooper, and Marston Hefner. Christie is David’s biological and older sister, she is also the firstborn child of Hugh while Cooper and Marston are David’s half-brothers or half-siblings whose mother is Hugh’s second wife Kimberley Conrad.

All of them are doing well in their own field and David’s brother Cooper is currently serving at Playboy Enterprise as a chief creative officer. Furthermore, he also founded the upstart media company Hop where he is serving as the CEO. While David’s other brother Marston is into acting but he is also linked with Playboy. Martson has worked in various television series and documentary movies. In 2012, Marston was arrested on the charge of domestic abuse against his partner Claire Sinclair.

David’s career

He got his computer engineering degree and he has established his own company where he serves as a computer analyst. His company is located in Northern California.

There are various sources who claim that before he established his company he worked as a graphic specialist in various films and series. We don’t know if he is as successful as his siblings but we can be sure that he is successful in his own standard and is doing pretty well.

Is Dave Hefner married?

Since Dave does not like to be in a limelight he keeps his life private especially his personal things like his relationship and all so there is rarely any information we can get about him.

However, there are few sources that suggest Dave is indeed married but since he keeps all his things private we don’t even know who his wife is, leave her name we don’t even know what her name is. On top of that, he is not active on any social media platforms which makes it harder for us to dig up information regarding his life.

Who knows, maybe one day he will come forward and introduce his wife to the world.

Dave’s mother cheated on his dad

It is known to everyone that Dave’s father Hugh was married thrice in his lifetime but do you know how his first marriage fall down? I am specifically talking about his first marriage and first wife Millie because Hugh and Millie knew each other since their school days not only that but they were school sweethearts who later married in 1949. A few years after their marriage Millie gave birth to their daughter Christie and son Dave.

Sadly, Millie had an affair with a military guy but she didn’t hide it but she confessed it to her husband still, Hugh didn’t divorce her, however, after some time the couple got divorced in 1959 even though they had come to mutual understanding. They were married for 10 years.

After his divorce from Millie, Hugh started dating actress Kimberley Conrad and they got married in 1989. Kim was 36 years younger than Hugh. After some time the couple welcomed their two sons into this world. Unfortunately, due to an unknown reason, the couple decided to get divorced in 2010.

Hugh was already dating model Crystal Harris before he divorced Kim. Hugh was sixty years older than Crystal, the couple married on December 31, 2012, and separated only after Hugh’s death in 2017.

How did Dave’s father Hugh die?

Hugh died at the age of 91 at the Playboy mansion on September 27, 2017, in California. According to The New York Times, he died because of sepsis brought on by an E. coli infection. He is buried next to a popular American actress Marilyn Monroe at Westwood Memorial Park in Los Angeles.

He bought the crypt for $75000 in 1992. When he talked about it with Los Angeles Times in 2009 he explained that many of his friends are buried there and he later said, “I’m a believer in things symbolic, spending eternity next to Marilyn is too sweet to pass up.”

Dave Hefner’s net worth

As mentioned already Dave is a very private person who keeps his personal life away from all the media and the public so we don’t really know how much he earns or how much his net worth is but since he is the oldest son of Hugh he must have inherited multi-million dollar worth wealth after his father’s death. So we can say that he is worth millions of dollars because his father Hugh was worth $50 million at the time of his death.
