Wilkinson and Baskett announced their engagement last November after he proposed at the top of Seattle's Space Needle. Before he popped the question, he said he wanted to make sure her ex, Hugh Hefner, was cool. "Hef is like a father to her so he's going to be the one to give her away," Baskett recently said. "That's why I wanted his blessings and her mom's blessing."

Wilkinson recently blogged that Baskett told her he loved her first during a vacation to Cabo San Lucas. "He told me he loved me two days before I told him," she wrote on her website. "We were sitting out on the [hotel resort] balcony, and out of nowhere he just looked at me and told me he loved me!!! I was just like, 'OH MY GOD,' and I didn't know what to say. I was speechless!!!! Poor guy."
