(Newser) – The bad news: Hugh Hefner, 87, is probably going to bid farewell to this earthly life long before his 27-year-old bride, Crystal Harris. The good news: When he does, Harris will have an awesome place to live. Hefner just bought her a $5 million, 5,900-square-foot Hollywood Hills estate, TMZ reports. Hef and his wife will continue living in the Playboy Mansion for the time being, but when Hef passes on, it won't go to Harris—it's owned by Playboy Enterprises.

He wanted to make sure she wouldn't be forced to live in a van down by the river, hence the newly-purchased abode, which has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and an infinity pool. It's held in trust for the two of them, meaning Crystal basically owns the house alongside Hef ... but if they get divorced, all bets are off. Harris' parents are probably pretty pleased with her new place: She recently told People that they hang out at the Playboy Mansion almost every weekend and love the perks of her marriage to Hefner. "They've made all kinds of new friends here," she says. "Hef has friends from all throughout the years, so my parents relate to some of the people more than me."
