Former Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson and her 11-month-old son are moving back to Los Angeles, Calif. Along with the move, she’ll be adjusting to life without her husband Hank Baskett, who just signed with the Minnesota Vikings.
“Hank’s not going to be there forever, but with him not physically here, I’m a single parent now,” Kendra tells Life & Style.
Since Hank will be traveling with his new football team after leaving the Philadelphia Eagles, Kendra is preparing to adjust to parenthood and family life without her husband.
“The hardest part for sure, though, is Hank missing the baby’s milestones,” she says. “He’s talking a little bit and is going to walk any day now,” Kendra explains. “When he looks like he’s about to walk, I kind of push him down because I want Hank to be here and see it! I’m like, ‘Wait for Dad!’ I have about eight video cameras, and one is always in my back pocket so I’m ready to record.”
In addition to Hank’s absense for his son Hank’s big moments, Kendra will be coping with the absense of Hank as her husband as well. She tells Life & Style how she will miss romantic rituals such as waking up next to him in the morning, his singing and his cooking.
Despite preparing for and enduring a long distance relationship, the two Kendra stars have made it a priority to unite their family for important occasions. “I’m going to go back to the minus-2-degree weather to spend Thanksgiving, baby Hank’s 1st birthday and Christmas in a small one bedroom hotel room with my husband and son. That’s all that matters to me,” Kendra says. Until Kendra and Hank IV can visit though, Kendra will have the love and support of her family in Los Angeles.
