NEW YORK (SMELLYDIAPER) Reality TV star Kendra Wilkinson has delivered her second child to husband Hank Baskett, a former NFL wide receiver. The couple have been married since 2009. For Wilkinson, the buxom 5’4″ blond beauty tweeted her fans as she was going into labor and delivery that the long awaited time had arrived. Thankfully, she delivered a healthy little girl complete with two eyes, ten fingers and ten toes. So what name did she give her little angel? The name she chose was Alijah Mary Baskett where her given name is an alternate spelling for the Biblical prophet Elijah, who returned to heaven in a chariot of fire without tasting of death. In Hebrew, the name refers to having the Lord as one’s own God.
Going with a Biblical name may be a curious choice for a person who was a former girlfriend to pornographer Hugh Hefner. As for the middle name of Mary, it was not a reference to the mother of Christ, but rather to Hefner’s faithful secretary of many years Mary O’Connor. It is also representative of Kendra’s own mother. With the new addition to the family, little 4-year-old Hank Baskett Jr. becomes a big brother.
Hopefully with this delivery, Kendra will be better prepared to deal any issues that may arise. After giving birth to her son, she admitted that she sank into post-partum depression which had her going about without bathing, washing her hair, or even brushing her teeth. In part, she said that her move to a part of the country where she had no support increased her depression. That should not be the case this time around as she has a big network of friends and family to watch her back. Thus far, it seems like mother and daughter are doing just fine and may it remain so.
