Kendra Wilkinson: Labour was easy

Kendra Wilkinson was terrified about giving birth to her second child.

The 29-year-old star and her husband Hank Baskett welcomed their daughter Alijah into the world five weeks ago. In the latest issue of People Magazine she opened up about the labour and meeting her newborn child.

“The delivery was way too easy. I was scared and nervous about another c-section, but everything ended up being so easy. I didn’t feel a pinch. I feel guilty I didn’t feel anything. Emotions were extremely high when we first met Alijah. It was a heavenly time,” the reality star explained.

This is Kendra’s second child with former NFL player Hank. The couple also have a four-and-a-half-year-old son together named Hank IV. Having dealt with parenthood once before the star says things are different this time around.

“With little Hank, I felt like I was doing everything wrong. He cried and I came running – it was very intense. With Alijah, it is more relaxed and I know I’m doing OK. I have room to breathe and take time to enjoy every moment,” Kendra explained.

The also discussed her daughter’s name. After going through a number of options she settled on Alijah after a chance meeting with a driver.

“I ended up going to Sundance [and] I met a driver who was amazing and so kind. He was talking about his daughter who was named Alijah and I knew right then that would be my little girl’s name,” she explained.

In a photograph which accompanies the interview, the former Playboy playmate is pictured with her husband Hank and their two children. However, earlier this week National Enquirer alleged that Hank cheated on his wife with a transsexual while she was eight months pregnant. Kendra has not yet commented on the claims.
