Those of you who missed Kendra Wilkinson‘s baby special Sunday night on E!, never fear. The new mom is offering plenty of play-by-play coverage of her new son on Twitter, too.

Kendra and her husband, NFL player Hank Baskett, welcomed their newborn, Hank Randall Baskett IV, on Dec. 11.

“Up all night with the lil man again but i enjoy every min of it,” she wrote Sunday in one of her Twitter-speak posts. “He almost peed in my face today.”

As tired as she is, she’s getting energy from an old friend. Later in the day on Sunday, she wrote: “man it feels great reuniting with my best friend that i havent seen in 9 months…her name is COFFEE!!!!!!”

Most important, it sounds like little Hank is doing wonderfully. Returning from a pediatrician appointment on Monday, Kendra reported: “hes 100% im 100% happy.”

I watched her show on sunday about the birth. It was so beautiful, it isntantly made me flashback to the births of my children. They were so over the moon excited about that baby, many blessings to the Baskett family 🙂

JessicaC.. I totally agree!! It was very beautiful and you could just see and feel the love through the t.v. screen. It made me flashback to the births of my children too. What I found funny though, and commented to my husband about, was how the internet was a-buzz about how she got induced and a c-section because she’s all Hollywood and worried about her figure and convenience. When in reality the induction was due to the baby’s size and the c-section was due to the baby not progressing and his head swelling after 29 hours of labor! It’s funny b/c it shows how little people really know about celebrities lives but they think they know it all anyway lol. I only caught the last half hour of the show but it was great!

I agree with you guys, it was beautiful! She’s a sweet and silly girl and they seem truly in love! Congrats to them!

I cried watching the baby special…Kendra looked so miserable the last few weeks but it was all worth it when lil Hank was born…when her Grandma showed up, I lost it. What a great family, Blessings to the Baskett’s!!

I think a little bit of coffee during pregnancy is OK. I’m not a big coffee drinker, but my doctors told me that a cup or two each day during my pregnancies was fine.

Heather, I was thinking the samething when I watched the show. All the negativity about her having the c-section, she was better than me b/c after 24 hours I would have been screaming for a c-section, LOL.

Heather – I thought the same thing! I also got really emotional watching this episode. I can’t believe how big and round she got! She looked so miserable! I was thinking “Oh that poor thing!” But you can tell how much she and Hank love that baby. They are one of my new favorite celebrity couples. I can’t wait to see more of little Hank 🙂

Isabella on

Girls I agree 100% I cried for like 11 mins watching the birth. I thought about my kids being born and hearing them cry for the first time

I watched it on Sunday 🙂
I loved when Hank did the belly cast, but I wished they had decorated it on the show.

Kendra used to annoy me on The Girls Next Door. She was my least favorite “girl”, now I think she’s just so adorable. She’s really grown up alot it seems. She’s really embraced her new married, mom life. It’s cute.

Yeah, I have to admit that I teared up as well. It was a very sweet show and its wonderful how much she has matured from her crazy past. Her husband seems like such a good man and it was precious to watch him with his son and see the amazement on his face. The newborn Hank is just a beautiful baby. The Wilkenson/Baskett family is blessed.

Melissa on

I have to agree, I really enjoyed the show, they seem so in love and so happy. I was so happy when her grandmother showed up 🙂

JMO on

I guess we had play by play of the entire pregnancy so we’ll get a play by play of every moment of lil Hanks life!

Lola Marie on

I have just fallen in love with Kendra since she met Hank. She is such a different person! Its exciting to see her go on this journey.

Best of luck.

I didn’t watch the show, so could someone who did please answer this question: Was the actual birth shown on that special episode? Or was it just the labor? I’m asking because I know Kendra said in an interview that they were not going to show the actual birth on the show.

Melissa on

Celebritybabylover – technically they did not “show” the birth. They were in the room with them when they did the c-section but they didn’t show anything besides her head, they didn’t show below the sheet or whatever it is that they hang up. They showed the baby as they were bringing him to Kendra to see. It was actually a really nice episode.

CelebBabyLover on

Melissa- Thanks. 🙂

melissa on

You’re welcome!

I cried during the baby special…and my husband watched with me and commented on what a great husband, father and person Hank is…he was crying like a baby over the birth of his little boy. I think the baby special cleared up a lot of questions (and assumptions) about the c-section…it was 100% necessary for the health of Kendra and the baby after almost 30 hours of non-progressive labor. I just loved the show…Kendra has mellowed out so much with the pregnancy and birth and you can tell she and Hank are really in love. Their “little man” is beautiful. Just a side note…his name is HENRY Randall Baskett IV, with Hank being a nickname.

Glad to hear they are doing so well and that little Hank is in good health. I sure enjoyed the baby episode. It looked rough but I am thrilled to hear that everyone is back to normal and adjusted to their new life.
