Kendra Wilkinson on Her Post-Baby Body: "My Curves Shocked Me"

After giving birth to son Hank Baskett IV last December, reality star Kendra Wilkinson went from a toned and taut size two up a few sizes into uncharted territory. “My curves shocked me big-time,” admits the E! star. “It was a whole other woman I was looking at in the mirror.” While Kendra is enjoying her new “different” body, she’s looking forward to getting that tone back. “About two months ago, I stopped making excuses. It’s time to get out there and really bust my ass like I used to,” she says of her now hour-long workouts at the gym and new healthier eating habits, which include salads, grilled chicken and chewing gum to curb cravings. “I was so used to being fit and skinny,” she says. “I never had to lose weight until now. I want my muscle back–I don’t want anything jiggling. Cardio for me is number one. I need the cardio because I can tone my body, but I gotta burn the fat off!” One step in the right direction? “We didn’t have my stripper pole in my house ever since I gave birth, now we’re going hang it up. I feel sexy again.” –Jennifer Garcia

Kendra already looks amazing. She looks Marilyn Monroe-ish in this pic. I prefer post baby to pre baby kendra.

I would also like to add that if having a baby would make me look like that, its at the top of my “to do list” this year.

Keep up the great job of getting your pre-pregnancy figure back. I’d like to say I’m a mother of three and grandmother of two, I enjoy watching you on “The Girls Next Door” and your new show “Kendra.” You are an inspiration to young women in all walks of life to never give up and be yourself. I love your personality,sillyness,laugh,love of life,love of family and drive to do what you have to do to get things done.And the respect you have for people! I’m so happy for you, that you and Hank found each other,you seem like soul mates. And no matter what, just remember how much you love each other and that will weather all storms! As you have learned don’t believe the tabloids,don’t even read those awful things that can destroy a person’s soul. I feel from what I’ve seen on the shows that you are an awesome human being :) Your little family is priceless,what an amazing little person you and your husband have brought into this world. I really like you as a celebrity and a person that I only see on T.V.
May God Bless You All!

If that’s fat, I hope I’m fat after I have my baby boy in a couple of months. She looks great, I don’t think she needs to lose any more weight!

I don’t think Kendra is fat like Kelly thinks. However, she is not as thin as these pictures make her. If any of you watched her show then you would know she still has plenty of baby fat left that she has tried to work off. She admits that her photos are photoshopped to make her look thinner & perfect. She should just try to be natural and proud of her curves instead of all this air brushing..I think she is hilarious!

God Kelly…your comments are rude!!!!

Kendra doesn’t look fat, she looks like what a woman SHOULD look like. Not the emaciated things we’re subjected to. She looks healthy! Women are supposed to have curves…and when you have a child your body is NOT the same, you have a pooch…and no matter how many situps you do – it won’t GO! Have a look at Victoria Beckham’s stomach…google pics of Venice vacation…she may be super thin but her stomach skin is wrinkly!

I like her swimsuit..looks good.
