Kendra Wilkinson Calls 40-Hour Labor 'Heaven'
Kendra Wilkinson admits she's already blocked out the 40 hours she was in labor to deliver son Hank.
"I have labor brain," Wilkinson, 24, told OK! magazine from her hospital bed in Carmel, Indiana, where she welcomed the baby boy via C-section on Dec. 11. "I forgot everything that happened!"
"I was just in heaven," continued the E! reality star.
Added husband Hank Baskett, a wide receiver for the Indianapolis Colts, "It was awesome... I am in straight awe, trust me."
Wilkinson said she had time to prepare before going to the hospital.
"The good thing about being induced is that it's like planning a trip, just very calm," she explained. "We ate a huge dinner before we came to the hospital. I ate a whole batch of brownies because I was nervous. No wonder he's 9 pounds!"
Once they arrived to the Clarian North Medical Center, "I was induced early in the morning; then it was wait, wait, wait," she said. "I was experiencing contractions throughout the day, and I was anxious. I kept checking the monitor every second, like 'Is it happening yet?'"
After welcoming their son, the couple released a statement that read, "We're happy and healthy and enjoying every second with little Hank."
