He continued, "Being with you has been one of the best changes in my life and the roses have never been more real! Thank you for making the start of my 32nd year of life better than I could have dreamed."

How did Crystal Hefner and boyfriend Nathan Levi meet?
According to Us Weekly, the gorgeous couple met through mutual friends. “Crystal is the happiest she’s been in years,” a source told the outlet. “He’s so caring and wants to make her happy. He’s very kind and gentle with her and super smart. … It’s been hard for her to find someone that measures up to the legend of Hugh Hefner and this guy seems to be it.”
The insider added, “They have been traveling together as he’s wanting to have more of a balance between work and being with Crystal. He feels he’s found someone really special in her.”
From their Instagram photos, it seems the couple both enjoy traveling, something Crystal didn't get to do much of while married to Hugh.
Following his death, Crystal opened up about making it her mission to "[see] the world" (via Daily Mail). Adding, "I didn't do much of that living at the house. Hef and I were just homebodies. He didn't like me traveling. I guess I'm making up for lost time."
