Kendra Wilkinson rose to fame as one of Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends at the Playboy mansion. She was one of the youngest Playboy bunnies at the time and she always seen walking around in short shorts and crop tops.
Wilkinson’s body was and still is amazing. Amazing because it has carried and birthed her two children. Amazing because it bears the signs of a stomach that stretched to the extreme to house it’s little occupants.
I have so much praise for Wilkinson, who took to Instagram on Mother’s Day to flaunt tummy — her un-retouched, stretch-marked, saggy skinned, pushed out two babies tummy! Fantastic!
Smiling and wearing a very practical sports bra Wilkinson shared an image of what motherhood really looks like for a lot of women, along with the caption, “Look what my 2 babies did… They made me happy. #happymothersday.”
Her post is currently closing in on one hundred thousand likes and has gained loads of supportive comments, like the one from the woman who admits, “I love how honest & real this is. I have a ton of stretch marks & always feel bad when comparing myself to others.”
Wilkinson often posts photo of how motherhood really looks- you know when you’re lying in bed with your engorged breasts between feeds. Glamorous it ain’t-but it sure is real. Check out the image below of Wilkinson looking rather beat while suffering from mastitis.
That’s not to say that 30 year old Wilkinson isn’t working hard at getting her body back into top shape. She shared a photo of herself 2 weeks ago looking as fit as ever. What I love though is that Wilkinson shares both sides of the coin- the saggy stretch marked tummy pics as well as the ‘banging body’ ones. No-one said you can’t be proud of your accomplishments, but it’s very rare for a celebrity to share a less than flattering photo of herself.
Wilkinson married former NFL star Hank Baskett in 2009, and the couple share two children together, 6-year-old Hank IV and 1-year-old Alijah.
