The Boss' Ex
Childhood and Family:
Born Kimberley Coonradt, on August 6, 1962, in Moulton, Alabama,
Kimberley Conrad moved to Reno, Nevada with her family when she was
four years old. The family moved again, this time to British Columbia,
Canada, when she was twelve.
On July 1, 1989, Kimberley married Hugh Hefner. They welcomed their
first child, son Marston Glenn Hefner, on April 9, 1990. Their second
son, Cooper Bradford Hefner, was born on September 4, 1991. The couple
split up in 1999 but remained married until Hefner filed for divorced
in September 2009, citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce was
finalized in March 2010. Hugh Hefner was quoted, “I would've been
happy to divorce her when we separated, but she wanted to remain
married for our boys.”
Playmate of the Month
Kimberley Conrad kicked off her modeling career when she was seventeen
years old. She signed with John Casablancas Elite and worked in
Vancouver, Canada. She was persuaded by local Vancouver photographer
Ken Honey to pose for “Playboy.” In 1988, Kimberley became
the Playmate of the Month in the January issue of Playboy. She was
preceded by India Allen and succeeded by Kari Kennell. She was chosen
as Playmate of the Year in 1989.
Kimberley's association with Playboy culminated when she married the
founder Hugh Hefner in July 1989. The Hefners had two sons before
separating in 1999. They eventually divorced in March 2010.
Kimberley has appeared in many “Playboy” videos and had a
“Playboy” newsstand special edition completely devoted to
her. Credited as Kim Conrad, the 5' 9” tall beauty got a handful
of acting experience with guest appearances in “Falcon
Crest” and “Highway to Heaven” (both 1989). She is
portrayed by Rebecca Romijn in “Hefner: Unauthorized”
