A picture is worth a thousand words. And you can bet that one day Kendra Wilkinson’s baby boy is going to have a mouthful to say about his mom’s Playboy bunny baby shower. Former boyfriend Hugh Hefner and his ex-girlfriends Bridget Marquardt and Holly Madison–along with his current gang of gal pals–gathered at the baby shower to celebrate the coming birth of Kendra’s first baby with husband Hank Baskett.
Madison and Marquardt arrived early in the afternoon to set up the decorations which included a lot of blue in honor of the baby boy on the way, Hank Baskett IV. The house was adorned with plenty of sweet treats – multicolored lollipops, taffy candy, cupcakes and blue “It’s a Boy” banners.
Guests at the “pickles and ice cream/Candyland”-themed shower munched on treats that included cupcakes baked by Bunny Bridget herself—with the help of her newly announced live-in boyfriend, Nick Carpenter. “Just got done baking, frosting and decorating a ton of mini cupcakes for Kendra’s shower tomorrow…It’s been a busy day. I’m exhausted,” Marquardt wrote on Twitter yesterday.
Madison, meanwhile, twittered during the party that she was “wearing a sympathy pack made of balloons.” She also hopes she “likes the gift I brought!” wrote the Las Vegas Peepshow star.
Don’t think that Hef isn’t hip with technology. Here’s what the ultimate playboy tweeted: “The girls are going to Kendra’s baby shower today,” he wrote. “Crystal, the Twins, Holly, Bridget & Kendra will all be there. How can I stay away?”
The festivities took place at the home of longtime Playboy Mansion secretary Mary O’Conners, and Hef had twittered earlier today about squiring the new Girls Next Door, Crystal Harris and twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon, to the party. Madison, who’s staying at the Beverly Hills Hotel while in town, also twittered ahead of time that she’d be filming a baby-shower episode for the sixth season of The Girls Next Door, premiering Oct. 11 on E!
“Kendra was really excited about the shower. It wasn’t a surprise or anything so she was really looking forward to it,” says a source. “She was so happy.”
