Baby due on Christmas

Kendra Wilkinson is expecting quite a Christmas gift this year: A new baby!

Baby due on ChristmasThe former Girls Next Door star and her fiance, football star Hank Baskett, tells E! News, "Hank and I are thrilled to announce that we are expecting our first child together. We are touched by the outpouring of support by our family friends and fans."

"So the rumors are true... I am pregnant! Hank and I were beyond excited when we found out the news, and I've been dying to tell all of you, but we were waiting for the perfect time to do it," Wilkinson added on her own blog yesterday.

The Philadelphia Eagles star and the former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner became engaged in November and are planning on marrying at the Playboy Mansion on June 27.

Wilkinson, 23, has been fending off rumors for weeks now. When the reality star felt comfortable with the news, she let the world know.

''Honestly still can't believe that soon, Hank and I are going to have a little athlete running around the house,'' Wilkinson adds on her site. "Seriously, the first thing this kid is going to see when it's [sic] born is a football -- hahahahaha.''

Can you just hear that laugh?

Wilkinson's latest show, Kendra, premiered on E! last week in the network's second-most-viewed debut ever -- an astounding 2.6 million viewers.
