Born Sept. 4, 1982, in Clovis, New Mexico, Hank Baskett began his impressive football career as the leading receiver at the University of New Mexico in 2004. Upon graduation, he originally signed with the Minnesota Vikings before he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, where he was voted MVP by his teammates in 2007.
In Nov. 2008, Baskett proposed to E! reality star and former Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson. Their wedding took place at the Playboy Mansion on June 27, 2009, the same month as a then-pregnant Wilkinson’s spinoff reality show, Kendra, premiered on the E! network.
In Feb. 2010, Baskett signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles as the team’s new wide receiver.
Wilkinson gave birth to the couple’s first child, Hank Baskett IV, in Dec. 2009. She filed for divorce on April 6, 2018.
