If you were thinking that the very pregnant Kendra Wilkinson must be having her baby any day now, you’re not far off! The reality star and hubby Hank Baskett are just two weeks away from meeting their little girl, and this time around, she’s totally prepped. But that doesn’t mean it’s been easy…
Wetpaint Entertainment chatted with Kendra and she opened up about her difficulty second pregnancy — son Hank, Jr. is now 4 — her surprising pregnancy cravings, her sex life, and plans to get her body back “better than you’ve ever seen it!”
Wetpaint Entertainment: How are you holding up?
Kendra Wilkinson: I’m not holding up, I’m holding down. I can’t even stand up anymore; it’s that part where I’m officially done. I might start drinking some red raspberry tea [to induce labor]!
How does this pregnancy differ from your first one?
Little Hank is what’s different. He’s 4 and he’s very active. I’m a little slow, and I’m trying to keep up with Hank and his papa [Hank Baskett]. Physically, it’s been 100 percent way more brutal. I’ve got a lot of pelvic issues and hip issues — it’s just really bad. It’s easier on the mind; we know what to expect. We had the option for a changing table in the nursery and I said no because it’s going to take up space. You think you need everything, but this time around, you just change the baby wherever — your lap, even!
Have you and Hank, Sr. been able to make time for some romance?
We’re kind of lacking in the sex department. We’re usually very sexual people, and we’ll get back to that, but for some reason my complaining is just not turning him on. We’re stuck in quicksand; we just have to get out of the pregnancy and feel confident again.
Any major pregnancy cravings?
Beer has been my No. 1 pregnancy craving. Just the smell of it — I just want to chug a beer. For stuff I can eat, it’s a lot of chocolate. If you walked in my house, your mouth would drop at how much chocolate is around my kitchen. I’m at that place in my pregnancy where I kind of give up. This is my last pregnancy. I have two weeks left, I’m not going to stress and just go off of what my body needs and wants.
Is getting back into shape post-pregnancy important to you?
I’m an extremely fit person. I’m an athlete. I play all sports. I go to the gym. I do hot yoga. This whole pregnancy I’ve worked out until two months ago. I started doing this barre class during the last part of my pregnancy because I couldn’t do a lot. And I do a lot of swimming now. Other than that, I kind of slowed down. But let me tell you, when the baby’s out and I get that six-week clearance, I’m hopping back on my man again. I’m getting my body back better than you’ve ever seen it!
Basketball Wives’ Evelyn Lozada recently pledged to get back into shape in the two months after her son was born. Is that something you would do?
I definitely don’t agree with putting a time limit on your body and your health. I think that’s living for other people’s pleasure and other people’s eyes. I’m a very confident person where I don’t really need to say,’Everybody watch me!’ I think I play the realistic role. There will be failures. I’ll be tired. I don’t half-ass my parenting. Parenting comes first; I have two kids now. Working out will be there, but I’m going to make sure I take the realistic route.
