Philadelphia Eagles Wide Receiver Hank Baskett proposed to playmate Kendra Wilkinson, according to Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner.


In a statement released Thursday, Hefner confirmed that his former "girlfriend" and co-star in the E! reality series, "The Girls Next Door" was proposed to on Saturday by the football player.

"I have given her my blessing and will be giving her away at a very special wedding ceremony at the Playboy Mansion this coming June," Hefner said, showing that there are no hard feelings between the two. The 23-year-old model-actress lived with Hefner since 2004.

Baskett popped the question to Kendra atop the Space Needle in Seattle last weekend, according to E!. Both families were reportedly on hand for the proposal.

There have been major reshuffles in the Playboy mansion since October. Hefner and his "No. 1" girlfriend Holly Madison announced their break-up. Madison has been dating "Mindfreak" illusionist Criss Angel.

Meanwhile, Hefner, 82, is now dating 19-year-old twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon. The sisters have already moved into the mansion.
