Kendra Wilkinson is pregnant.

The E! reality star has exclusively confirmed to me that she and fiancé Hank Baskett are expecting their first child.

"Hank and I are thrilled to announce that we are expecting our first child together," she just told me. "We are touched by the outpouring of support by our family, friends and fans."

Wilkinson, 23, and Baskett, 26, announced their engagement last November after the pro footballer popped the question at the top of Seattle's Space Needle.

What a month for these two! Besides this happy news, the couple's wedding is set for June 27 at Wilkinson's former abode, the Playboy Mansion. And Kendra, her new post-Girls Next Door show premiered Sunday, scoring E!'s second-highest rated series debut ever with 2.6 million viewers.

Just last month she told me the couple were already talking babies.

"I plan on having them very soon," Kendra said. "We want to be young parents and be able to chase around our kids and run and coach our kids. So, very soon."

She wasn't kidding!
