Talk about kicking off the weekend with a bang. Congratulations are in order to Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett, who welcomed a baby girl on Friday, May 16, marking the couple’s second child.
According to a report by TMZ, the reality star gave birth to the little girl via C-section at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles. Despite the duo’s intent to share the private moment with viewers for their upcoming WE reality show, cameras were turned away by hospital employees. The couple reportedly asked for a deluxe suite, but was rejected because another wealthy patient locked down the area.
Baskett spoke to US Weekly about the birth of his second child, telling the outlet that he is “so happy” for the recent addition to his family. Not only is the baby “healthy with all 10 fingers and all 10 toes,” but he says wife Kendra “did an amazing job.” This marks the couple’s second child after their 4-year-old son Hank IV, who was born in 2009.
News of the baby’s birth is surprising, especially for those who follow Wilkinson on Twitter. Just hours before TMZ reported on the birth, she took to Twitter to tease the big news.

Back in December 2013, Wilkinson spoke all about her plans for her mini-me to OK! Magazine, telling the outlet that she wanted the nursery to reflect the couple’s active lifestyle. “I don’t want her to feel like she has to be trapped in a girly-girl bubble,” she explained. “We are going for unisex colors, like yellow and cream, and a unisex name. I am putting basketball shorts on her. Of course we are going to introduce her to princesses, but if she turns out girly, it will be her decision.”
