    Pregnant Kendra: More Food, Less Stripper Pole

    Kendra Wilkinson Craig Barritt/Photosmith

    Mommy-to-be Kendra Wilkinson doesn't care how many pounds she puts on during her pregnancy.

    "I'm concentrating more on what's healthy for the baby more than my weight gain," says Kendra, whose E! reality show was just renewed for a second season. "I know my weight gain will go away very fast, so if I gain weight and that's what it takes to make my baby healthy, that's what has to happen."

    Kendra, who is expecting her and football hubby Hank Baskett's first baby on Christmas Day, recently began craving Japanese food…

    "Not fish or any of that stuff, but teriyaki chicken and rice and soy sauce and ginger salad," she said.

    Back when she was just 12 weeks along in June, Kendra admitted she was terrified of giving birth. "I'm getting an epidural, everything they can give me," she said at the time. "That's the one thing I'm nervous about the most. Everything else is so fun, but I have visions of my vagina tearing, and that sucks."

    Fast forward to yesterday. "I thought I was scared," she said. "But I know the moment's going to come where I'm like, 'Oh my god. It was so worth it.' It's only a little bit of pain for a lifetime of happiness."

    Even her fondness for stripper poles has taken a slight dip. "The stripper pole's coming down now because of the baby," she said with a laugh. "Not forever, but for a while. It will be hung up in the closet."

    Did you know that Kendra will be leaving Hollywood soon for the East Coast to be with Hank, who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles? Check out the first half of our chat with Kendra for all the deets.
