For many women, the decision to add a second child to their families comes very easily. To reality television star Kendra Wilkinson – who welcomed son Hank Baskett IV with her NFL playing husband Hank Baskett two years ago – the choice isn’t quite so simple.
In the recent issue of InTouch, Kendra, 26, opens up about her fears of reliving the postpartum depression she suffered after giving birth to Hank IV back in 2009 and her struggles to drop those pesky post-baby pounds.
“I was living under a gray cloud and had lost who I was,” the Kendra on Top star reveals, adding that at her worst, she felt as if she “had nothing to live for.”
“It took me two years to not only get my body back, but to feel like myself again,” she continues.
She also discusses her fears that her husbands uncertain career path may render a second child impossible.
“I’m not going to say it’s easy,” she confesses of being the breadwinner for the retired football player-turned-aspiring actor, 29. “But I’m willing to work harder so that he can find what he wants to do.”
