Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett are no longer married. The former Playboy model confirmed the news of their separation on the 6th of April, Friday. Hank and Kendra were married for nearly nine years.
The 32-year-old reality star said in her post that it was the last day of her marriage to the “beautiful man,” Baskett. Wilkinson admitted she would love him for forever, but they both realized it was time for the split.
Kendra stated that, in the beginning, she did believe it would last until the end of time, but “fear has gotten in the way.” Wilkinson said she and Hank to do best by their kids, and marriage was just a piece of paper and a ring, what matters is that their heart is still in it.
Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man. I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways. I’m beyond sad and heartbroken because i did believe in forever, that’s why i said yes but unfortunately too much fear has gotten in the way. We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy n never know the difference other than seeing mama smile. Sometimes love looks funny. We are told to make sacrifices in life if it’s true love well in this case it’s me. I want to see happy Hank again… i miss that. Marriage was just a piece of paper and a piece of jewelry but our hearts will always be real. U will prob see us together a lot but it’s because there’s no hate. Love wins in this case it’s just looks a little funny. Thank you Hank for a beautiful 8 years of marriage and 2 beautiful kids. I feel so thankful and blessed. ❤️
Wilkinson told her large Instagram following, 2.7 million followers, that they would see more of her and Hank in the future because they managed to end it amicably.
However, they are tied at the hip because of their children. As it was previously reported, the news of their divorce comes a week after Us Weekly revealed she and Hank had filed for separation.
Hank and Wilkinson share two children together, Hank IV, and their daughter, Alijah. On Thursday, April 5th, Wilkinson took her son to a Los Angeles Kings game despite the news of their marital difficulties.
Sources close to the couple stated, “Hank and Kendra have been fighting a lot, so this was a long time coming. It doesn’t help that she’s always posting everything on social media, they have no privacy.”
Another insider shared, “Kendra has been complaining to all of her friends about Hank. It’s just not working anymore between them. I think it’s best for them to break it off.”
