Kendra Wilkinson and fiance, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett, are expecting their first child together.
"Hank and I are thrilled to announce that we are expecting our first child together," she tells E! News. "We are touched by the outpouring of support by our family, friends and fans."
Wilkinson, 23 - who is set to wed Baskett, 26, on June 27 at the Playboy mansion - recently told E! babies were in her future.
"I plan on having them very soon," she said. "We want to be young parents and be able to chase around our kids and run and coach our kids. So, very soon."
Wilkinson and Baskett announced their engagement last November after he proposed at the top of Seattle's Space Needle.
Before he popped the question, he said he wanted to make sure her ex, Hugh Hefner, was cool.
"Hef is like a father to her so he's going to be the one to give her away," Baskett recently said. "That's why I wanted his blessings and her mom's blessing."
Baskett said he knew Wilkinson was the one.
"Kendra has one of the biggest hearts and that's one of the things that really drew me to her," said Baskett.
Wilkinson recently blogged that Baskett told her he loved her first during a vacation to Cabo San Lucas.
"He told me he loved me two days before I told him," she wrote on her website. "We were sitting out on the [hotel resort] balcony, and out of nowhere he just looked at me and told me he loved me!!! I was just like, 'OH MY GOD,' and I didnt know what to say. I was speechless!!!! Poor guy."
