The Girl’s Next Door star, Kendra Wilkinson is engaged and Hugh Hefner has given his blessing to the couple. E! online reported that Philadelphia Eagle’s Hank Baskett proposed to Kendra Wilkinson atop the Space Needle this past weekend in front of both their families. Wilkinson accepted his proposal, even though sources say she “seemed completely shell shocked” at first.
Onlookers said Baskett got down on one knee to pop the question, completely catching Wilkinson off guard.
One of Kendra’s close friends confirmed the engagement, but it has yet to be released by Wilkinson’s representatives.
Hefner has also released his own statement about the new engagement and said, “Kendra Wilkinson has met someone who she would like to spend the rest of her life with… I have given her my blessing and will be giving her away at a very special wedding ceremony at the Playboy Mansion this coming June.”
This is the second Girl’s Next Door lady to make her relationship public. Holly Madison,told the world about her guy, ‘Mindfreak’ Chris Angel last weekend, when she was photographed kissinghim on the red carpet at the premiere bash of “Chris Angel Believe by Cirque Du Soleil.”
