Kendra Wilkinson opened up about her relationship with her ex-husband, Hank Baskett, in an interview published on Monday.

The 37-year-old model praised the former NFL player — with whom she was previously married to for almost a decade — for being ‘the greatest father to my kids’, according to Us Weekly.

‘I’ll forever love my ex-husband, you know,’ the reality TV star said while promoting the sophomore season of her show, Kendra Sells Hollywood. 

The real estate agent — who shared rare snaps of her kids while vacationing in Hawaii last December — and the wide receiver share two children.

The former couple were married for nearly a decade before calling it quits in 2018.

During their marriage, Wilkinson and Baskett welcomed son Hank IV, 13, and daughter Aaliyah, nine.

The Girls Next Door alum said despite their split, the former couple still have a great coparenting relationship. 

‘He’s the greatest father to my kids, and that’s all I really just ask for,’ she continued. ‘That itself is so good.’

‘It’s good enough, and if later down the line things happen, then they happen,’ she said on the topic of their future.

‘I will always love him and I loved him once,’ the SoCal native added. ‘Love doesn’t just go away.’

‘We only have a short time on Earth, and once you love someone, I will always love them, you know? And my kids are just so happy, and they’re so taken care of.’

As for her dating life post-divorce, she revealed she does not have any desire to start another relationship yet.

‘Dating is still very nonexistent,’ she said. ‘It’s really [not in] my head right now, because I’m really so in love with building my new career in business and focused on my two kids.’

The Sliding Into Home author also added that she does not have time to date since she prioritizes her children in her schedule and prefers to be as hands-on as possible. 

‘I don’t have [a] nanny or housekeeping [service], so I don’t really have a lot of time to give to some dude,’ Wilkinson explained.

‘You know, it’s just not really exciting for me to think that way,’ she continued. ‘It’s more exciting to sell houses and feel that good feeling.’

She added: ‘I love what I’m doing and if I’m loving what I’m doing, I don’t see the purpose in changing that and giving my time to another person and hoping that it works.’ 

She also spoke about her docuseries in which she has taken up selling exclusive properties in California. 

‘It just really makes me feel good about myself when I close deals,’ she said. ‘And my kids are proud of me when I do that.’

Wilkinson continued: ‘They won’t be proud of me if I bring in some strange dude. It’s just, like, they’re proud of me for closing deals, and that’s what I want to continue.’

On the topic of Kendra Sells Hollywood, which debuted in 2021, she said: ‘I’m really grateful for this chance I’m getting in my life, so I don’t really know if I date someone … it’s like I wouldn’t want to take away from this great experience for, you know, like a date or something.’
