As for her youngest, Alijah “loves to play around” in her mom’s closet. In fact, Wilkinson told Us, “She was so excited to hear about this new collection because that meant even more shoes for her to play with.”

The Kendra alum welcomed Hank and Alijah with Hank Bassett in 2009 and 2014, respectively. In April 2018, she filed for divorce from the former professional football player, 37, after nine years of marriage.

Wilkinson’s friend Jessica Hall told Us exclusively that she wants to see the Sliding Into Home author “with a family man because that’s all she wants.” The model, 36, explained in September 2019: “She wants a guy that just wants to go camping and wants to take her and barbecue. She’s so simple and I think a lot of people don’t realize that about her, but she really wants the ultimate family guy and it’s what she’s always dreamed of and what she’s going to continue to want, so I like that it has not changed and she has not changed.”

Hall went on to say that the Dancing With the Stars alum is “really just focusing on her kids and her career” for now.
