Hugh Hefner's widow Crystal Hefner has found a new love more than two years after the death of the Playboy founder.

Crystal has finally moved on, almost three years after the death of her husband Hugh Hefner. She had been mourning for years but was recently photographed with her new boyfriend at the Casa de Mita resort in Mexico.

According to Page Six, Crystal, 34, is dating Nathan Levi, a 32-year-old spaceship engineer. The lovebirds were photographed strolling on the beach and stopping to kiss and cuddle each other. An insider told the outlet that Crystal's late husband would surely approve of her new love.

"Hef would approve of her romance," the source told Page Six.

"Since his death she has been mourning and soul searching and traveling the world. It’s been hard for her to find someone who measures up to the legend of Hugh Hefner, and this guy seems to be it."

Crystal's circle of friends also approve of her new boyfriend. They find Levi "amazing" for Crystal.

"He’s an amazing guy and all her friends adore him," the insider shared what Crystal's friends said about Levi.

Crystal had a hard time following Hefner's passing. She was still grieving and heartbroken when she released a statement following her husband's funeral.

"I haven't been able to bring myself to write most people back to thank them for their condolences. I am heartbroken," Crystal told Us Weekly. "I am still in disbelief. We laid him to rest Saturday. He is in the place he was always certain he wanted to spend eternity."

According to Crystal, Hugh was more than a husband and lover for her. She learned a lot of things from him, even calling her late spouse "a force unlike anything else."

"I felt how much he loved me. I loved him so much. I am so grateful," Crystal said.

"He gave me life. He gave me direction. He taught me kindness. I will feel eternally grateful to have been by his side, holding his hand, and telling him how much I love him. He changed my life, he saved my life. He made me feel loved every single day. He was a beacon to the world, a force unlike anything else."

Hefner passed away at the age of 91 on Sept. 27, 2017 at the Playboy mansion due to natural causes.
