After being together for almost a decade, Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett are calling it quits. On Friday the former playboy bunny posted to her Instagram revealing the two were ending their marriage.
“Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man. I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways. I’m beyond sad and heartbroken because i did believe in forever, that’s why i said yes but unfortunately too much fear has gotten in the way. We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy n never know the difference other than seeing mama smile. Sometimes love looks funny. We are told to make sacrifices in life if it’s true love well in this case it’s me. I want to see happy Hank again… i miss that. Marriage was just a piece of paper and a piece of jewelry but our hearts will always be real. U will prob see us together a lot but it’s because there’s no hate. Love wins in this case it’s just looks a little funny. Thank you Hank for a beautiful 8 years of marriage and 2 beautiful kids. I feel so thankful and blessed,” she wrote in her caption.
According to E!News, Wilkinson officially filed for a divorce citing irreconcilable differences on Friday afternoon. On Monday, Kendra took to twitter and hinted that something was coming.
Today will be the saddest, scariest day of my life. Today i will have to be the strongest I’ve ever been. Today, my rebirth begins.

“Kendra and Hank went to therapy after Hank’s 2014 cheating scandal to try and work on their marriage, but in the end, his scandal always hung over them like a cloud,” a source said.
Wilkinson and Baskett wed in 2009 and have two children together — Hank Baskett IV, 8, and Alijah Mary Baskett, 3.
