For a lot of holiday travelers, flying with a baby is the ultimate nightmare, but Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett is determined to do whatever it takes to bring her family together for the holidays.
“She really misses her husband,” says a friend.
Kendra had a tearful reunion with her husband, Hank Baskett, on Nov. 18, after taking the first of several flights she plans this winter between L.A., where she works, and Minneapolis, where Hank plays football for the Vikings.
Her hubby’s team visits the Redskins on Nov. 28, but Kendra and their 11-month-old baby, Hank IV, planned a turkey feast with him days before the game.
“Moving to Minnesota just wasn’t a choice at the time for Kendra, and it broke her heart to have to stay in California without Hank. It’s been really hard on both of them,” says the friend.
“But she doesn’t want Hank to be separated from his son for long and risk missing key moments of his life. She knows that if she wants her family to be together for the holidays, it’s going to be up to her to reunite them.”
