"Look what my two babies did."
Reality star Kendra Wilkinson understands something very important about motherhood: She knows that it isn't easy, and evidence of its difficulty will set up shop in your mind and on your body. Sometimes being a mom means sacrificing parts of yourself—but in the end, all that matters is that your children will make you unspeakably happy.
To illustrate that point, Wilkinson shared a revealing photo in honor of Mother's Day. In it, the star of the Playboy Mansion reality show The Girls Next Door (and Hugh Hefner's ex) is smiling down at the camera while wearing a sports bra. Her stomach is exposed and her stretch marks are on full display...but she doesn't seem concerned with them. After all, they come with the territory of being a mom, a role that Kendra seems to love.
"Look what my 2 babies did... They made me happy. #happymothersday," the reality star captioned the photo, which she has since taken down.
Kendra has two children with husband, former NFL player Hank Baskett: Hank Jr., who is six, and 23-month-old Alijah. The stretch mark-baring shot wasn't the only thing Wilkinson posted in honor of the holiday; she also shared a throwback shot of herself and her son Lil' Hank.
With Lil Hank I was soooo attached to him. I didn't want anyone near him. He was all mine. To the point of being crazy and territorial. I still feel that way now. We have this mother/son bond that's so strong. I can't go one night without praying and cuddling with him. I am cherishing every moment with him. #mothersday
We must say—we love how real Wilkinson is. She's happy to show off a less glamorous side of motherhood...and anyone who has children knows that these aspect of the process are all too relatable.
