Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett welcomes second child, a baby girl, early Friday morning. Former playboy model just welcomed a little girl via C-section at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, to the family of three. Welcomed by her proud mother and father and happy big brother, either parents have yet to release her name.
Wilkinson, 28 and Baskett, 31 got married in June of 2009 and they already have a 4-year-old Hank IV. Baskett told US Weekly that he is feeling great and is happy with the arrival of their newest addition. Stating that the baby is healthy, with all 10 fingers and toes, momma is also great and did an amazing job. While still pregnant, Kendra Wilkinson told People that their son is still her baby and during the pregnancy she reminded him often that no matter what, he would still be her baby. She added they would always treat him that way in order to empower him; however, releasing that he needed no reassurance. Big brother quickly developed sibling love without anyone’s help.
The former E! star celebrated her baby shower in April with friends at her best friend Jessica Hall’s home in Santa Clarita, California. Wilkinson said she had a really good time with friends, adding it was more like a bachelorette party than a baby shower. Including fun drinks, delicious healthy food from Paleta and massages from Manly Handz’s guys. Kendra Wilkinson also said that other than the nursery not being ready, they are completely prepared to welcome their second child into their lives.
The Kendra on Top and The Girls Next Door star has not been one to shy away from sharing all of her life’s moment with the public. So it was no surprise that Kendra Wilkinson allowed the cameras to film as she and her husband welcomed their second child to the world. However, it was met with some difficulty. It was reported that the couple had requested a deluxe private room, but was unable to acquire it due to a wealthy Russian woman getting in the room first. It was also reported that the couple and the hospital had words over the cameras. The hospital informed them that they were restricted from filming in public areas and were reportedly reprimanded for doing so anyway.
Wilkinson’s mother Patricia and brother Colin, who fell out with her in October, have yet to comment on the news of her child’s arrival. It is alleged that the fight kicked off when Patricia called her daughter to ask if the pregnancy rumors were true and Wilkinson responded with some very harsh words. They have yet to resolve their issues and Patricia recently stated, her daughter seems to have this deep-seated hatred towards her and she has been unable to figure out why. Siting until a sincere apology comes her way they will not be apart of each other’s lives.
With the exception of the slight family dispute, Kendra Wilkinson, Hank Baskett, Hank IV and baby girl are all happy and doing well. Kendra has happily welcomed her second child into the world and fans will soon be able to get a glimpse of their new life as a foursome.
