LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- It didn’t take long for “Girl Next Door” Kendra Wilkinson to move on following her split from Hugh Hefner.
Kendra is engaged to NFL star Hank Baskett, Access Hollywood has confirmed.
“Kendra Wilkinson has met someone who she would like to spend the rest of her life with. His name is Hank Baskett, a wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles, and he popped the question last Saturday,” Hugh Hefner said in a statement to Access Hollywood.
Baskett popped the question to the bubbly blonde atop the Space Needle in Seattle last weekend, according to E!. Both families were reportedly on hand for the proposal.
The group was in Seattle to watch Baskett’s Eagles play the Seattle Seahawks.
Kendra, who has never been shy about her love for sports, isn’t the only “Girl Next Door” to find love post-Hef — Holly Madison has been dating “Mindfreak” illusionist Criss Angel.
Meanwhile, Hefner has also found a new object – or in this case, objects – of affection.
Hef, 82, is now dating 19-year-old twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon.
And showing that all parties have seemingly moved on, Hefner said he will even be a part of Hank and Kendra’s wedding.
“I have given her my blessing and will be giving her away at a very special wedding ceremony at the Playboy Mansion this coming June,” Hefner’s statement continued.
So while the four-way love affair between Kendra, Holly, Bridget and Hef has ended, during a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Holly confirmed all three girls are “on board” for another season of “Girls Next Door.”
