Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett are heading to Splitsville.

The former Girls Next Door star officially filed for divorce from her husband on Friday, according to TMZ. The outlet reports that Wilkinson stated the date of separation as January 1, 2018 and is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their two kids, 8-year-old son Hank Jr. and 3-year-old daughter Alijah.

The reality star confirmed the news in an emotional Instagram post featuring a selfie of the couple.

“Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man,” she wrote. “I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways. I’m beyond sad and heartbroken because i did believe in forever, that’s why i said yes but unfortunately too much fear has gotten in the way.”

She continued, “We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy n never know the difference other than seeing mama smile. Sometimes love looks funny. We are told to make sacrifices in life if it’s true love well in this case it’s me. I want to see happy Hank again… i miss that. Marriage was just a piece of paper and a piece of jewelry but our hearts will always be real. U will prob see us together a lot but it’s because there’s no hate. Love wins in this case it’s just looks a little funny. Thank you Hank for a beautiful 8 years of marriage and 2 beautiful kids. I feel so thankful and blessed.”

The duo have been having problems for quite some time, including when Baskett was accused of cheating on her with a transgender model while she was pregnant with their second child.

Although Wilkinson is “heartbroken” over the breakup, she “knows this is the best decision for her kids,” an insider told E! News this week. “It has been an uphill battle these past few years with Hank, and ultimately all trust was lost.”
