Rumors have been swirling that Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett and Hank Baskett‘s marriage is falling apart. In this week’s issue of OK!, Kendra opens up about the decision to do long distance, the pregnancy rumors and most importantly, her untarnished love for her hubby!
At a GNC store appearance in L.A. on Nov. 10 Kendra couldn’t help but gush about Hank and plans for a romantic reunion.
“We’re planning a second honeymoon,” the reality star revealed. “I was pregnant during the first honeymoon. This second honeymoon is going to be Mommy-Daddy fun!”
Does that sound like a couple on the rocks?
Even though the pair now lives more than 1,000 miles apart — Hank in Minneapolis, where he plays for the NFL’s Vikings, and Kendra in L.A. — they have made the best of it.
Kendra told OK!, “We’re so happy and it sucks being apart, but that’s just the way it goes. We look at the military families and what they’re going through, and there are a lot of people that have to be apart.”
Kendra wasn’t always so happy about the situation though. When Hank was picked up by the Vikings, the camera crew of her E! reality show Kendra was there to catch the star’s heartbreaking reaction.
“I feel like an NFL wife,” she wailed. “I need a home!”
It seems that while Kendra has picked up a positive attitude, now it’s Hank that’s truly hurting, says a source close to the couple.
Hank, who is seen being nothing but a doting husband and father on their show Kendra, is reportedly really missing their 11-month-old son Hank IV.
“He wants to say good night to him every night, so they talk on the phone or Skype before going to bed,” said the friend.
The couple also count on Skype to keep their own relationship strong.
The friend adds, “They’ve always had a hot sex life, even when Hank’s not in town. They rely heavily on Skype.”
People have interpreted Kendra’s decision to stay in L.A. while her husband moved to Minneapolis as a sign of a deteriorating marriage and Kendra even joked that it was because of the cold, but the friend says the 25-year-old mom was just looking out for her son.
According to the pal, Kendra “didn’t want to uproot Hank Jr. She’s become quite a homebody since she got married, and she’s really happy where she is [in L.A.].”
The friend also insists that despite the distance, Kendra and Hank are as close as ever.
“They laugh together; they cry together. They’re each other’s best friend. As far as Hollywood marriages go, theirs is uncharacteristically solid.”
And as to those pregnancy rumors? Kendra told OK! that while she does plan on having a second child with Hank, she’s perfectly happy to wait and that is exactly what she plans on doing.
“I am having fun with baby number one,” she told OK!. “I am having fun with my body. The baby is getting bigger, I am getting smaller, and that’s the way I like it right now.”
