Kendra Wilkinson talks about her post-pregnancy figure, the competition on Dancing with the Stars, and her family’s surprise visits
Kendra Wilkinson is already a Dancing with the Stars fan-favorite and she talks to HollywoodLife.com about how she manages to balance the show’s rehearsal schedule and being a mom to her 15-month-old son, Hank Jr.
“The [show's] schedule has actually been great with our [parenting] schedule,” Kendra tells us. “I’m there when baby Hank wakes up, I feed him and play with him before practice and then of course when I get home.”
When she is busy dancing with DWTS partner Louis Van Amstel, her husband, Hank Baskett, watches their son and they often visit Kendra, 25, on the set.
“He loves to surprise me and show up with baby Hank, it always makes my day,” reveals Kendra. “We live pretty close to where I practice so I’m really only gone a few hours at a time so I get to be with my family a lot.”
Kendra is putting in a lot of effort learning her performances for the show. “I practice for three, maybe four, hours a day,” confesses the reality star, who we danced with at Crunch in West Hollywood. And after rehearsals, Kendra isn’t done dancing, she practices her moves with her husband to make them perfect. “I teach Hank all of the dance moves I learn during the day so we dance together when I get home. The whole family is involved with it!”
Kendra is our number one pick to win Dancing With The Stars this season. However, she thinks the competition is wide open.
“I think this year it’s a totally even playing field which I love,” she explained. “There are no professional dancers we all have the same amount of skill so it’s really fun. Its anybody’s game at this point!”
Kendra’s biggest advantage may be her post-pregnancy slimmed down figure.
“I’ve been dancing a lot and working out a lot obviously, eating healthy with lots of protein and I’m taking a health supplement called Ab Cuts that has really helped me,” Kendra explained. “I feel probably the healthiest I’ve ever felt and the most comfortable with my body.”
Kendra is looking great, making DWTS a family affair, and is ready to win the mirror ball trophy. In fact, we can exclusive reveal that her brother and mother will be in the audience tonight! Are you excited for the new season to start? Sound off on your favorites below!
