Lately, Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett has been making headlines because of the marital drama stemming from her husband’s, Hank Baskett’s, alleged tryst with a transgender model. Sadly, Wilkinson-Baskett found out shortly after giving birth to their 4-month-old daughter, Alijah Mary. It’s an understatement to say that the reality star’s life over the last several months have not been easy.
But, amidst the difficulties the 29-year-old has found time to get her post-baby body back. She spoke with E! News’ Giuliana Rancic about how she shed the pounds after her second pregnancy.
“During my pregnancy, I started at 120 and ended up at 175,” she revealed to Giuliana Rancic during an exclusive interview for the special Beyond Candid With Giuliana: Kendra Wilkinson Baskett. “I researched the perfect diet for after baby… I love meat, I love vegetables, it’s low-carb…it’s working so good,” Kendra revealed, referring to the famous Atkins diet, which she credits for helping her loose so much weight so quickly.
“I’m an athlete, I thought I would lose the weight so fast right after having the baby, but I didn’t,” the mom-of-two continued, referring to her first pregnancy with son Hank IV, 4 1/2. “I learned the pounds don’t just shed off. You have to go on a diet and really take care of your body.”
Although happy with the results so far, Wilkinson-Baskett admitted that she wasn’t quite where she wanted to me. “I’m still getting there,” she said. “I’m back in my jeans but I’m not at my goal yet. I still have a little bit of work to do.”
The Kendra on Top star wrote a lengthy tweet to her fans that summed up the last several months of her life. “Just wanted to say thank you for all the support. This has been the most challenging 4 months of my life, and I’ve been focusing on being the best me I can be, for myself and for my babies. While some moments are sacred, fact is… I’ve lived my life in front of cameras for the last 10 years, so I chose to allow cameras to tell even the hard stories. I don’t think it’s fair or truthful to only show the good and not the bad. I don’t have all the answers, but like you, I’m a mother, a wife, a daughter and a woman, and struggles are a part of life and I am not afraid to admit that my life is not perfect. Thank you for the love… I’ve missed you all!”
