Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett are officially over.
On Friday, April 6, 2018, the Kendra on Top star took to Instagram to confirm that the former couple’s marriage has come to an end amid rumors that the two were headed toward divorce.
“Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man,” Wilkinson captioned a snapshot of the two. “I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways. I’m beyond sad and heartbroken because i did believe in forever, that’s why i said yes but unfortunately too much fear has gotten in the way.”
She continued, “We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy n never know the difference other than seeing mama smile. Sometimes love looks funny. We are told to make sacrifices in life if it’s true love well in this case it’s me. I want to see happy Hank again… i miss that.”
“Marriage was just a piece of paper and a piece of jewelry but our hearts will always be real,” the reality TV star added. “U will prob see us together a lot but it’s because there’s no hate. Love wins in this case it’s just looks a little funny.”
As she concluded her post, “Thank you Hank for a beautiful 8 years of marriage and 2 beautiful kids. I feel so thankful and blessed.”
As Nicki Swift previously reported, speculation that Wilkinson was planning to file for divorce from Baskett began to spread in late March. At the time, the Girls Next Door star had shared black-and-white photos of herself without her wedding ring on her Instagram Story, while saying, “Life isn’t making any sense to me right now” and “I need to love myself again.”
A few days later, she hinted at their rumored split again when she tweeted, “The universe doesn’t stop for you. Whatever is supposed to happen will happen. At the end if all u have is faith, love and positive outlook then it’s a good day.”
Wilkinson shared another emotional update with fans earlier this week. After breaking down in tears on her Instagram Story as she told her followers, “I believed in forever….I guess it’s just not meant to be,” she tweeted, “Today will be the saddest, scariest day of my life. Today i will have to be the strongest I’ve ever been. Today, my rebirth begins.”
Wilkinson, 32, and Baskett, 35, married in 2009, and share two children together: 8-year-old son Hank Baskett IV and 3-year-old daughter Alijah Mary Baskett.
