Congratulations are (probably) in order! While the Playmate/reality TV star has yet to confirm the news herself, sources say that 28-year-old Kendra Wilkinson is expecting her second child with husband Hank Baskett. Wilkinson and the 31-year-old former NFL player are already parents to Hank Baskett IV, now 4 years old, but have reportedly been trying for baby #2 "since August." Which means that Kendra is now, supposedly, around eight weeks pregnant.
Yay!! And ... yikes?? Not to sound superstitious, but what about that whole "90 days" rule?
I'm not trying to be negative here -- not at all. It's just that most people follow the old "wait until the end of the first trimester before you tell everybody in the whole world" thing for a reason, which is that anywhere from 15 to 20 percent of all "clinically recognized" pregnancies end in miscarriage, and most miscarriages occur during the first 13 weeks of pregnancy.
Now, hopefully Kendra will sail past that 13-week mark with nary a complication -- and odds are, that's exactly how things will go. I just hate to think of how hard it would be to face the public if, god forbid, something should go wrong. I mean, it's hard enough to share that kind of news with your immediate family -- imagine having to announce your loss to every single other person on the planet?? I cringe just thinking about it. And I can't be the only person who feels that way; I assume that fear is the motivating factor for celebs like Adele who hide their pregnancies until the last possible moment. (Well, that fear and the basic human need for privacy.)
Like I said, I'm sure everything will be just fine for Kendra, at least I hope so. Fingers crossed! While you wait for Wilkinson to make an official announcement (maybe in about four weeks, hint hint?), check out this clip of the mom/model talking about the possibility of more babies recently:
How long did you wait to tell people about your pregnancy?
