Kendra definitely needs a loving shoulder to cry on after her husband, Hank Baskett, reportedly cheated on her with transgender model Ava Sabrina London. Thankfully, Kendra has repaired her relationship with estranged mom Patti Wilkinson, who is now a huge source of support for the former Playboy model, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Kendra Wilkinson is “depressed” and hurting after husband Hank Baskett‘s transgender cheating scandal, and while she’s trying her best to be strong for their two young children, Hank IV, 4, and Alijah, two months, it’s not easy. That’s why we’re so relieved that Kendra now has her formerly estranged mother, Patti Wilkinson, to turn to in her time of need.
Kendra Wilkinson Mom: Estranged Patti At Daughter’s Side After Cheating Scandal
If there’s a silver lining in this cheating scandal, it’s that it has allowed Kendra and Patti to reconnect after having been estranged since a blowout fight they had in 2013. Now Patti is doing everything she can to be there for Kendra when she needs her mother most.
“Her mom has been spending a lot of time at their house,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She’s been driving from San Diego at least once a week and spending a night or two to help with the kids. Hank [IV] adores her so it’s good distraction for them.”
And it sounds like Kendra could definitely use the distraction.
“Kendra is pretty out of it. Besides the hell she’s in with Hank, her hormones are all over the place, she’s extremely depressed,” our source reveals of the new mom, who gave birth to baby girl Alijah just two months ago in May. “She’s so worried about how all this is going to affect her kids, that’s the most upsetting thing to her. She doesn’t know what to do.”
Poor Kendra! We can’t imagine how difficult this must be for her, but she is so strong and we know she will get through it — especially now that her mom is there to help!
