Kendra Wilkinson: The book

Kendra Wilkinson is penning a memoir.

The 24-year-old former Playboy Playmate - who is expecting her first child with her American football star husband Hank Baskett - can't wait for the book to hit stores next year.

She said in a statement released by publishers Simon Spotlight Entertainment: "I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I have a husband I adore, a baby on the way, and now my memoir is going to be published!"

The tome is expected to be available next summer.

It will cover Kendra's childhood as well as the period she spent living at the Playboy Mansion when she was dating 83-year-old magazine mogul Hugh Hefner.

It will also look at her TV career, which includes reality shows 'The Girls Next Door' and her new series 'Kendra'.

The statement added: "The memoir will be a humorous, relatable, fish-out-of-water tale that captures the spirit of one of the most beloved Playboy cover models in history."

Simon Spotlight Entertainment's Jennifer Bergstrom said: "Kendra is so genuine and funny that her memoir is sure to be unique, refreshing, and a reflection of the woman so many people have fallen in love with."
