Kendra Wilkinson Heading East for Baby and Husband
So long Hollywood, hello Philadelphia! Kendra Wilkinson reveals in a new interview with E! that she'll soon be trading in the glitz and glamour of Southern California for a lower-key life in the City of Brotherly Love. "I need to get away and hibernate for a little and be a protective mama", the reality star's currently expecting her first child with husband (and Philadelphia Eagle!) Hank Baskett explained. "I like the energy there. They leave me alone. I feel way more private [in Philly] than here, and that's what I need."Â
Although the couple eventually intend to settle on the West Coast, Kendra said she's looking forward to delivering her winter baby in snowy surroundings. She adds,
"That's where a real Christmas is. I want to have a real Christmas baby in a real Christmas place."
Baby-to-be is "A kicker!, Kendra says, and the couple are anxious to learn whether her intuition is correct at their anatomy ultrasound in the coming weeks. For now, Kendra is focusing on having a happy and healthy pregnancy; To that end, she's not worrying about the baby weight, which she predicts will go away very fast.Â Sharing that she is craving Japanese cuisine like teriyaki chicken, rice, soy sauce and ginger salad, she adds,
"If I gain weight and that's what it takes to make my baby healthy, that's what has to happen."
The fears she earlier expressed about delivering her baby-on-the-way have eased, with Kendra noting that "it's only a little bit of pain for a lifetime of happiness."Â That's not all that's changed, however! Kendra says that the stripper pole mounted in her home will soon be making an exit. "Not forever, but for a while", she explained with a laugh. "It will be hung up in the closet."
