NFL star Hank Baskett says that Playboy boss Hugh Hefner is like a father to his Fiancé Kendra Wilkinson. Baskett was talking about his bunny to an ABC affiliate.
“Hef is like a father to her so he’s going to be the one to give her away,” Baskett said on Tuesday. “That’s why I wanted his blessings and her mom’s blessing.”
It should be noted that Wilkinson was Hefner’s girlfriend for the past four years after they met in one of his parties at the Playboy Mansion. They were featured together on E! reality television series The Girls Next Door. It was Hefner only who broke the news of Kendra’s engagement to the Philadelphia Eagles player earlier this month.
And apparently, Baskett is quite happy with her.
“Kendra has one of the biggest hearts and that’s one of the things that really drew me to her. Ever since I met her, this is the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. And every day she does something else that makes me fall in love with her.”
The wedding has been scheduled to take place on June 27th next year at the Playboy Mansion.
Meanwhile, Kendra has been chosen to model for Marc Ecko lingerie campaign. The shooting is on at Palms Resort’s Hugh Hefner Sky Villa.
Hefner also split with his No.1 girlfriend Holly Madison recently and who has since been dating illusionist Criss Angel.
