The Kendra star and her husband Hank Baskett welcomed their first child -- a baby boy -- early Friday morning, E! News reported.

Hank Baskett IV was delivered at 12:37AM via C-section in Indianapolis and weighed 9 lbs., 5 ounces.

"We're happy and healthy and enjoying every second with little Hank," the parents told E! News.

Wilkinson's former The Girls Next Door co-stars were happy their friend and her newborn baby are both doing well.

"This is what I call a Christmas gift that will keep on giving (and taking...lol)!!!" Bridget Marquedt told E! News in an email.

"I wish both of them and little Hank Jr. a lifetime of joy and happiness! The only things I wonder... Can I help plan the birthday parties and how will they top this gift next Christmas???"

Fellow co-star Holly Madison said she "can't wait to meet little Hank."

"I am so excited for Kendra and Hank," she told E! News. "They are going to have the best holiday ever!"

Wilkinson's former boyfriend Hugh Hefner was also happy to hear the news.

"I send my love to Kendra, Hank and the baby on this memorable day," he told E! News.

Wilkinson and Baskett met at the Playboy Scramble event in 2008 and subsequently got married in June at the Playboy Mansion.

Wilkinson's The Girls Next Door spinoff Kendra also premiered in June and followed her as she attempted to settle down with Baskett in their new Philadelphia home.

However things quickly changed when Baskett -- an NFL wide receiver -- went from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Indianapolis Colts, forcing the newlyweds to relocate rather quickly.

E! renewed Kendra in July and production on the show's second season is slated to start early next year.
