Cindy Margolis finally gave in to Hugh Hefner -- she's posing for Playboy.

The 40-year-old bombshell told the television show 'EXTRA' that she finally decided to do the men's mag because she thought it could be an "inspiration to women."

Margolis joked, "Just because you're married, and have three kids, you're not dead!"
