Entering the home stretch of her second pregnancy, Kendra Wilkinson will soon have two children under age five running around her house, but the busy mom isn't fazed, especially since her husband Hank Baskett and son Hank, Jr., have doted on her so much over the last nine months. In fact, her son has stepped up so much that Wilkinson expects him to make the transition from only child to big brother rather well.

Set to welcome a baby girl in mid-May, Wilkinson and her football player husband are making a conscious effort to make little Hank a priority in his final weeks as their only child. "Little Hank and I are becoming so much closer. Our hearts are meeting more, we're talking more," Wilkinson tells Us Weekly. "We want little Hank to understand there's a little girl coming into our lives."

Though her son won't have another boy to kick around the soccer ball with, the former Playboy model is anxious to give her son small tasks when it comes to helping care for his sister. "We're trying to empower him and make him feel like he has a role, like he's a little bodyguard. He's taking it on," the second-time mom-to-be enthuses of her growing boy. "Every day it's like, 'I can't wait to teach my sister this!'"

The other man in her life—husband of nearly five years Baskett, whom she married at the Playboy Mansion in June 2009—has also been integral in helping Wilkinson get through her pregnancy. "[He] makes sure my every day is perfect," says the Kendra on Top reality star. "Like yesterday, he pulled me over, sat me on his leg, and looked me in the eyes and said, 'Kendra you're so beautiful, I know you don't feel it.' I started crying."
