'Tis the season… for celebrity engagements

The holidays held a little extra sparkle for Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Mraz, and Hugh Hefner, who each announced their engagements over the weekend.

“Big Love” star Goodwin’s rep confirms to CNN that the beauty is set to wed actor beau Joey Kern, who proposed earlier this month with a ring he designed. The couple, who have been dating for two years, told People, "We couldn't be happier than to celebrate our engagement over the holidays with our families." Goodwin, 32, and Kern, 34, plan to wed next fall.

Meanwhile, 33-year-old singer Mraz said “I’m Yours” to fellow musician Tristan Prettyman by asking for her hand in marriage. "SHE SAID YES," he tweeted on December 24. For her part, Prettyman, 28, couldn’t be happier. "For Once. I Am Speechless.....i did good! holy crap! man of my dreams!!! for the rest of my life!!!" she tweeted that day.

And as CNN previously reported, 84-year-old Hefner presented 24-year-old Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris with some engagement bling on Christmas Eve. “When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears,” the twice-divorced Playboy founder wrote on Twitter. "This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory."

    Man... CNN sure is liberal with the word "celebrity". I think I've only heard of one of these people.

    @ charles and mshollywood, you two should hook up. you would spend the rest of your lives trying to figure out what your talking about. Hefner has become a pedophile. If he had been around this girl 7 seven years ago he would have been locked up. Notice how he waits until they are barely legal. She on the other hand has $ signs on the old geezer. She figures chances are he will drop dead any day now. Better hurry up and get the nuptials over then check that will. Time is not on her side or his.

    Hugh Heffner getting shouldn't be surprising at all, since his lifestyle clearly revolves around young naked women. He also knows that he's not going to be married to this 24 year old longer than the time it will take for her to learn the multiplication table.
