Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett Keeps It Real With a Stretch-Mark Belly Shot

Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett shows stretch marksWe all know stretch marks are one of the hard-won battle scars of motherhood, but many ladies go out of their way to hide their tiger stripes. Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett proudly shared a photo of her stretch marks in honor of Mother's Day and moms everywhere appreciate it!


The former Playboy playmate and star of The Girls Next Door put it all out there in a photo that's a big departure from the ones she usually shares in which she looks downright flawless. Take a peek:

The proud mama captioned the shot this way: "Look at what my babies did. They made me happy!"

What a sweet thing to write -- referring more to her smile rather than her tummy. Clearly, she's making a statement about the reality of motherhood -- which sometimes is less than glamorous but still completely beautiful.

Having two gorgeous kids is well worth a few bumps and stretch marks! It's a message moms not only relate to but also love -- as evidenced by the 124,000 likes Kendra's post racked up. 

While it's not clear if this is a recent photo or one that dates back to the days just after her adorable kids, Hank Jr., 6, and Alijah, 2, were born, it doesn't really matter. Her message is the same: Children are blessings no matter how many wrinkles they might give you.
