It's officially over. Kendra Wilkinson took to Instagram to share a photo alongside Hank Baskett, announcing this will be the last day of their marriage on April 6. Earlier this week, the Kendra on Top star cried on her Instagram story over the fact that they decided to divorce. The former couple got married in 2009 and are parents to a son and daughter, Hank IV and Alijah. Watch the full video above to see her emotional message.
On Friday's new post, Kendra further opened up about their decision. "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. You will [probably] 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," she wrote, adding "fear" contributed to the demise of their relationship.
Just hours after the post, Kendra walked into court and filed for divorce from her husband, according to TMZ. As for the reason, she cited irreconcilable differences. It's unclear what they plan to do for custody of their two kids.

Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man. 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. 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. 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. Thank you Hank for a beautiful 8 years of marriage and 2 beautiful kids. I feel so thankful and blessed. ❤️
It's been a rocky relationship for Kendra and Hank. Back in 2014, the former NFL star got caught up in a cheating scandal, when trans model Ava London alleged she and Frank had an affair during the Girls Next Door alum's second pregnancy. She's also discussed possibly splitting in the past — though this time around, it is unclear what led to this decision. You can read more about Hank'saffair right here.
Kendra spent some time away from her now-estranged hubby this year while starring in the Vegas-based play Sex Tips for a Straight Woman From a Gay Man, where she candidly dished to In Touch about their issues. "We have already threatened divorce probably five times," she said. "At the end of the day, the downside of being married is the temptation all around. You know, the sexual temptations. I am not going to lie — I am a sexual person. I am a 32-year-old person, and sometimes the temptation calls. My fantasies are very strong, let’s just leave it like that."
Fans first began speculating there was trouble in paradise when the mother-of-two shared cryptic tweets and alarming Instagram story updates. She also hadn't shared any photos with him since a family outing in December.
