Kendra Wilkinson, former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner, has given birth to a baby boy. Kendra and her husband, Hank Baskett, Indianapolis Colts player, have announced the birth of Hank Baskett IV in Indianapolis.

Kendra Wilkinson and Hank BassettTheir son weighed 9 lbs and 5 oz and was born via C-section. According to, "Mother and baby are doing well." The source added, "Kendra and Hank are very happy."

Wilkinson and Bassett got married in July at the Playboy mansion in Los Angeles' Holmby Hills. This was merely one month after they announced they were expecting a delivery from the stork in December. Actually, little Hank was first reported to be due on Christmas day.

Kendra has indicated the pregnancy was not planned and although she and Hank gave hints to each other that they wouldn't exactly object to having kids soon, it sounds like news of baby Hank came sooner rather than later.

Wilkinson has indicated during her pregnancy that she got emotional and cried over everything and also remarked on her changing body. Above all, Kendra indicated to Us that she loved being pregnant and was looking forward to being a mom.

"I want to make sure that my boy knows I'm there every step of the way. I will be putting 100 percent of my love and time into my child," she said.

Kendra previously worked as a dental assistant and at Papa John's pizza and then got the call: Hugh Hefner called her himself and asked if she wanted to live at the Playboy Mansion. After appearing on The Girls Next Door, she took money earned from the show and bought an apartment in San Diego. She moved out of the mansion earlier this year to pursue a relationship with her now-husband, Hank Baskett.
