Kendra Wilkinson Gives Birth to Baby GirlBy: Kimberly Ripley - May 16, 2014
Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett are the proud parents of a new baby girl. Kendra gave birth on Friday via C-section at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Their new bundle of joy has a big brother, too. Hank IV is four years old and will no doubt be thrilled when his baby sister arrives home.
“I feel great and I am so happy,” Baskett told Us Weekly. He is excited that their baby is “healthy with all 10 fingers and all 10 toes,” he added, and he also shared that Kendra Wilkinson “is great and did an amazing job.”
Kendra tweeted a message to her followers late Thursday night in anticipation of going to the hospital on Friday. A bit earlier that same day Hank Baskett received a tweet from someone sharing a funny (depending, of course, upon who was reading it) birthing joke and the sender suggested he probably better not share it with Kendra.
It was back in October that Hank Baskett shared the news that he and Kendra were expecting a second child. In November Kendra dished about her pregnancy cravings at the Hollywood premiere of Frozen.
“The stereotypical pickle flavors and deviled eggs and potato salad,” she said. “I’ve been more on the vegetarian side during pregnancy so far. So meat and chicken is not something I want. It’s all fresh salads and anything lemon.”
At that time the former Girls Next Door star hinted that she was trying not to gain as much weight as she did when she was pregnant with Hank.
“I got it by the balls! I have full control now,” she quipped to Us. “First time around I’m like, ‘I’m a skinny person, I’m going to get back right away.’ Oh no. I learned a lot from my first one. I’m working out everyday; doing anything I can to control this this time around.”
Whether Kendra achieved that goal or not is uncertain. What is certain is that Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett are the proud parents of a healthy new member of their family and that trumps everything else. Congratulations to all three of them as they welcome the baby girl–who thus far remains unnamed–home in the coming days.
