Hugh Hefner's Son Cooper Gives Update on His Dad's Health

Hugh Hefner‘s 25-year-old son Cooper Hefner is the Chief Creative Officer of Playboy and he’s giving fans an update on his dad’s health.

“He’s doing fine,” Cooper said in an interview with E! News. “My dad has always made the joke that if the mansion was your house, why would you want to leave?”

Hugh doesn’t play as big of a role in the business these days, but at age 90, he deserves a break!

“I think because he has stepped back from the day to day operations of the business, people have thought that his health was not very good,” Cooper added. “The reality is he has a really bad back—that happens when you’re 90—and he is enjoying life at the mansion.”
