Hugh Hefner may be many things, but he’s not bitter. Following our exclusive item yesterday about Kendra Wilkinson’s touching marriage proposal from BF Hank Baskett, Hugh Hefner issued this exclusive sweet show of support to his former Girl Next Door:

“Kendra Wilkinson has met someone who she would like to spend the rest of her life with. His name is Hank Baskett, a wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles, and he popped the question last Saturday. I have given her my blessing and will be giving her away at a very special wedding ceremony at the Playboy Mansion this coming June.”

The happy couple better book the Mansion now—we know how they love throwing parties. And we hope Hugh gets a plus-two to the wedding, especially if he’s still with twin sisters Kristina and Karissa Shannon by June.
