Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson Expecting Second Child

It sounds like persistence has paid off for Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett.

The Kendra on Top star, 28, and her husband are expecting their second child, she announced Thursday on Twitter, sharing a photo of her positive pregnancy test.

“Round two. Here we go!!” Wilkinson, who is working with Clearblue, Tweeted. She added on Facebook, “Happiest Halloween ever b/c Hank and I have a special treat!”

Kendra on Top, naughty, naughty, that’s what got me pregnant with baby No. 2,” the reality star joked on Today Thursday morning.

“We planned this to be right after the season, so we have a little time off. I’ll have time to puke [and] be in a cave. I’m still in my first trimester.”

Her news comes as no surprise, as Wilkinson recently let viewers in on her decision to stop birth control. “I know I want baby number two right now. I know I’m ready,” the mom-to-be said on her show. Husband Baskett is on-board as well.

“He thanks me every day. He says, ‘Thank you for having my children,’” she says. “He takes such good care of me. I couldn’t have found a better man.”

Although expanding their family is something they frequently went back and forth on, the couple finally decided to have another child because their son Hank Randall IV kept telling his parents, “I want a brother and sister,” the former Girls Next Door star has said.

Wilkinson delivered her curly-haired cutie, now 3½, in December 2009, announcing the pregnancy just weeks before she wed her NFL pro hubby.

Congrats!!!! I am super happy for them but this makes me wonder a little about a story I read in the tabloids where Kendra Wilkinson’s brother was livid because somehow he found out thar she was pregnant and keeping it a secret from her family…he called her a few choice immature names and said he was done with her. Lol with the fact that he’s venting his feelings to the tabloids, there’s probably a reason she didn’t tell him if the story is true (I saw it about a month ago). Oh well….lol I really like this couple and wish them all the best :) I

Aly on

Kendra and Hank make cute babies.

Alyson on

Sarah on

CONGRATULATONS KENDRA & HANK…HANK JR YOU WILL AN AWESOME BIG BROTHER!!!!

Corrie on

Didn’t I just read an article the other day about her going off birth control? I am SHOCKED, I tell you. SHOCKED. This is absolutely, 100% unexpected. /sarcasm

Jenn on

Yeeee! I know she has so many haters but I think Her and Hank are so cute. I’m happy for them!

jamie on

they both sure do make cute children!!! they seem to have a good marriage and loving parents…congrats

Susan on

She is so busy flying all over the place and the boy stays home with Dad so, why would she want another one?

Rebeeca on

Good for them. Their son is adorable.

katrina on

So another baby for Hank and the nanny to take care of?! lol I have seen their reality show and Kendra when she was on Wife Swap and lets just say Kendra should be thanking the heavens for her husband who seems to be Mr Mom, the cook, the maid housewife, etc. I think Kendra still has a lot of growing up to do. But congrats babies are a blessing

Ashley. on

OH LORD! ugh.

Akita on

Great!…Happy for them…Hank is the best thing that happened to her…He saved her life

Bootziegurl on

Congratulations!!

April Hedges on

Soooooo happy for you both! Kendra, I just love you! I really enjoy watching your show. I knew as soon as you decided to take out your iud that it was just a matter of time. Congratulations! Much love :-)

tina on

Their little boy Hank is a doll. They sure made a cute kid.

Maria on

Yeah!!!
Congrats! I LOVE you and Hank together!
God Bless!
XO

Emma on

It always cracks me up when people announce so early. But she needs to stretch out her 15 minutes even more so I guess that’s why.

kim on

yay!! other baby for the nanny to raise!!

WiddoMouse on

They seem like a stable couple. I’m glad they are going to include another child.

Ashley on

Tina: uh no. Sorry, don’t agree there! The boy needs a haircut, pronto!!!!

Sandra on

@Ashley…No he doesn’t, his hair is fine as long as his parents say it is. You my dear are a non-factor in that decision making process.

Missy on

Congrats! She got her way…I think Hank was slow to agree because he and the nanny already have a preschooler to raise, and let’s face it, his future earnings look pretty slim. Hope all goes well, little Hank is a cutie, but please, cut his hair!!!

Tracie on

YAY!!! Soo happy for you and your family!!!

Jess on

I agree with Ashely…He needs his hair cut. He looks like a little girl. Congrats to the couple but it seems as if the nanny watches Hank jr more than mom.

Lisa on

He could have done SOOO much better than her! He seems to be a really nice guy.

Posie on

she’s annoying and ugly. go away.

Kassie on

Lol..the comment about how he thanks her every day for having his babies. I call serious BS on that. It’s like nobody on this planet has had sex & had babies. Omg..some wanna-be celebrities..

heather on

so that “costume” is okay to wear on national TV but not okay to wear in front of the kids?

heather on

why is she announcing it so early?

guest on

I hope she has a girl with little Hanks hair!!

Christine on

Good for you girl! Congrats and enjoy!

Jessica on

She is so annoying in all the ways possible and is not even good looking! Having more than one child is going to keep any parent busy, but of course she will want the nanny and Hank to raise both kids while she does her thing. I wonder if Hank would be ok with looking after two kids? Will see after baby #2 is born!

sam on

hey kendra who is the father this time

Jen on

@ Corrie- My thoughts exactly.

gina on

Ccongrats to you both. You are great parents and I’m so so happy for you!

sandy woodin on

Oooo hope they have a girl, she would be so beautiufl.

Danielle on

Congrats to Kendra and Hank for the good news. a brother or sister for their son…….God Bless…….

Tammy on

When you make babies THAT beautiful, I think you have a moral obligation to reproduce at least one more time. :)

Jamee on

Am I the only one that notices that it is a sponsored tweet? Is she a rep for ClearBlue pregnancy tests now?

Katia on

Wow, all the bullies are out from under their rocks. Kendra and Hank are nice folks and I am happy for them. And their adorable little boy has great hair. It does not need to be cut until they say so!

Anonymous on

Okay, why all the negativity about big Hank being the primary caregiver? If Kendra were a male celeb who’s wife was a stay-at-home mom, you’d all either not be saying anything at all or be saying nothing but positive things about the wife being a SAHM. Yet Hank being a stay-at-home dad isn’t okay?! I don’t quite get that logic.

Anyway, congrats to them!

Anonymous on

BTW, what exactly is so horrible about a little boy having long hair (or a little girl having short hair, for that matter)?! I thought we were in 2013, but apparently not! SMH

Tanja on

I’m always suprised to read that some people seriously think that their opinion matters when it comes to the baby’s or child’s look or the name…Kendra and Hank seem to love their sons hair like it is.They don’t care about what you think and it doesn’t really matter either.It’s their child,not yours.I’m pretty sure that some of you have own kids so focus on them and stop arguing about the looks of a child which isn’t your own.Get a life.^^

me on

The last thing she needs is another kid. And I know I’m in the minority here, but I think her little boy has always been odd looking.

Rebecca on

Love her, she plays dump for the camera but still love her and they make beautiful babies, they should have one more after this one!!
