It doesn't sound like parents-to-be Kendra Wilkinson and her football player hubby, Hank Baskett, will be going all Jon and Kate Gosselin on us.
Kendra says their baby, due on Christmas Day, probably won't be on camera too much if she and Baskett continue starring in reality television. That is a lesson she learned from tuning in for Jon & Kate Plus 8.
"We don't watch that anymore," Kendra tells me. "I watched back when it was good and they weren't all Hollywood."
She continued, "I feel bad for the kids. If we do have a show, none of that's going to happen...I want to be able to spend quality time with my child and not really give the world too much."
And that includes getting out of Hollywood...
Kendra is packing up her bags and moving to New Jersey to be with Hank, who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles.
"I need to get away and hibernate for a little and be a protective mama," she explained. "I like the energy there. They leave me alone. I feel way more private than here, and that's what I need."
But the couple will eventually land back on the West Coast after the upcoming football season. "We're going to try to get a house to buy and live in with the baby," Kendra said. "We're actually thinking about San Diego County—going back to where I'm from!"
But the California girl is excited about the upcoming East Coast winter. "It's perfect timing," she said. "That's where a real Christmas is. I want to have a real Christmas baby in a real Christmas place."
So will the newborn be wearing pink or blue? Just because Kendra referred to the baby as David Beckham the other day, that doesn't mean a little guy is on the way.
"I'm just saying the baby is a kicker," she said. "We don't know if it's a boy or a girl yet. We'll find out in three weeks."
What does Kendra have to say about packing on some pregnancy pounds? Come back here tomorrow to find out.
I really, really like her. A lot more ever since she got pregnant. who would have ever guess that she would be the first of the three to have a baby!
