Kendra Wilkinson Pregnant w/Hank Baskett’s Baby

Last week, when we heard that Kendra Wilkinson was a big fan of the “sports pole,” we assumed that it was a phrase she used to refer to her forthcoming line of stripper exercise poles (you know, for kids!). I mean, it’s a reasonable assumption to make - she hasn’t talked about much else lately. We didn’t know the half of it.

As it happens, the lovely Ms. Wilkinson’s been getting busy with a “sports pole” of a slightly different sort. Yesterday, she confirmed to E! ONLINE that she is pregnant with the child of her fiancee, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett. Looks like Kendra’s going to have to work the stripper/exercise/sports pole extra hard in, oh, 9 months or so to get back to Playmate form. Remembrances of the body that was, after the jump.

Kendra’s been talking about kids for quite some time, so this isn’t exactly a surprise. As she told PEOPLE MAGAZINE:

In February, Wilkinson, 23, told PEOPLE: “We always talk about [having kids]. He wants kids so [badly], and I do, too.”

Wilkinson even went so far as to tell PEOPLE that she and Baskett, a wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles, were already working on names: “My first initial is K and my middle name is Leigh, so we were thinking of Kaleigh,” she said. “And he’s Hank Baskett III, so of course I’m going to have a Hank Baskett IV!” 

OK, so creativity isn’t her strong point. Then again, when you look like this….

…people are more interested in your baby-feeding abilities than your baby-naming abilities, if you get my drift. Besides, if Jenna Jameson can pop out a couple of twins and still look that fantastic, Kendra and her collection of sports poles should come out on the other end of motherhood looking just fine.
