Kendra Wilkinson is counting her lucky stars. Following a frightening April 21 car accident in Tarzana, Calif., the former Playboy model and reality star tells Us Weekly that she's looking at life quite differently these days.
After the accident, Wilkinson's black Audi was totaled and she was "in shock" while being treated at the hospital for non-serious injuries. Now, the mom to son Hank Baskett IV, 3, says that although she's "doing great," the crash left a lasting impact on her.
"It's just one of those moments where every morning I wake up and every time I get in my car, I just am so thankful I'm still here," she told Us at Maxim magazine's Hot 100 Party at Vanguard in Hollywood, Calif. on Wednesday, May 15. "Of course, nothing bad happened to me but it was a moment where it was by the inch."
"The 'What if's' could have killed me and my son," she continued. "I just am so thankful every day I wake up. I look at life in a whole different way because of it. It's like birth. Right after you give birth it's a whole different world. After you get in a car crash, it's a different feeling. It's a spiritual moment."
The Kendra on Top star, married to NFL wide receiver Hank Baskett III, added that she's enjoying the little, happy blessings in life, like spending time with her son, to get past the crash.
"We're learning how to swim right now," she told Us, who coincidentally quit the ABC diving competition show, Splash, in April. "He's taking lessons. We're excited because it's time, he's growing, he's the most amazing little human being we could have possibly had."
She and her hubby, who've been married since 2009, are even tossing around the idea of having a second baby soon.
"He's [Hank IV] making us feel comfortable about possibly [having] baby number two now," Wilkinson said. "I feel like that decision, some people think about where the parents are in their lives, but we did the opposite. Now we're thinking about where he's at in his life. He's at a stage where he is amazing. He is in a perfect stage. He understands everything."
