Kendra Wilkinson: Counting Down the Days Until Christmas
With six months to go until Christmas, both Kendra Wilkinson and her fiancé Hank Baskett are already looking forward to their present: a baby! Revealing that she is 12 weeks along in her pregnancy and due on Christmas Day, the expectant mama tells E! that the couple was delighted to discover — at the airport, nonetheless — that their wish for a June 2010 baby was to be granted early! “Hank was like, ‘Hey, why don’t we do a test to see, just real quick,” recalls Kendra.
“I did it and we found out and we just sat on the baggage claim as everything hit us at once.”
Once the pair got over the initial shock, the former Girls Next Door star was ready to break the news to former boyfriend Hugh Hefner. “I called Hef because I had to tell him right away,” she says. “He was like, ‘Oh my God!’ and then he cried.” While it’s obvious Hef holds a special place in Kendra’s heart — the couple will be tying the knot, after a few “changes in the bust” to the wedding dress, at the Playboy Mansion on June 27th — the future parents hope to make their appreciation of the 83-year-old quite clear. “Godfather!” Kendra laughs. “Hef will be, ‘The Godfather!'”
As she looks forward to finding out whether they will be welcoming Hank Randall Baskett IV or being forced to choose between Arianna and Kianna for a girl, the excited mama-to-be admits she would be thrilled with either. “Whatever comes out of me, we’ll love,” she notes. As for Hank, he says he’s more than willing to step up to the plate and surpass Kendra’s expectations.
“Being a loving husband and father is what I’ve always described as the definition of a successful man.”
Despite her busy schedule, until now, Kendra’s focus has been on keeping her limos clean! Battling severe morning sickness while craving fuit and noodles, she admits her drivers have had much better passengers. “God, they hate me right now,” she jokes. “I’ve thrown up in almost every limo that has taken me out in the last week.” Hopefully, if things all go according to plan, Kendra can at least anticipate a smooth delivery. “I’m getting an epidural, everything they can give me,” she reports.
“That’s the one thing I’m nervous about the most. Everything else is so fun, but I have visions of my vagina tearing, and that sucks.”
With months still to go until they welcome their first child, Kendra and Hank are already planning baby number two! “We definitely want another kid right away because we want the two kids to be close in age,” she says. “We want four, but you know, we are taking it one step at a time. We’re concentrating on our first child and seeing where things go from there.”
Although she is yet to sport a baby bump, Kendra, who turns 24 on Friday, can’t help but lovingly pat her belly.
“Right now you can’t see it, but it’s there.”
