The ex-Playboy Mansion star Kendra Wilkinson, 29, has had a particularly tough few days after receiving a care package, which contained a photo of her young children who are back in the US with husband Hank Baskett.
The mum to four-year-old Hank IV and six-month-old Alijah, sobbed as she opened her package around the campfire.
‘I don’t know what hit me, I just started crying. It was really cool to able to talk to each other about our families and show each other our pictures. It put the pieces of the puzzle together and made us bond more,’ she later explained.
Her estranged mother Patti Wilkinson has slammed the reality star for leaving her children for the Jungle, revealing to The Sun that she didn’t even know her daughter wa staking part.
