Kendra Wilkinson believes her sex tape will make her a better parent.

The blonde beauty - who made the video when she was 18 with ex-boyfriend Justin Frye - is "hurt" the footage is being released as a DVD, entitled 'Kendra Exposed', but thinks ultimately she and her American footballer husband Hank Baskett will be able to teach their son six-month-old Hank Baskett IV a moral lesson from it.

In an interview with Ryan Seacrest for 'E! News', Kendra said: "Now that this happened, it hurts, but I know it's going to make me and Hank better parents.

"It's really going to make us teach our child what's right and wrong in this world. We're going to make sure our son is raised with a good head on his shoulders, a person that has morals, that treats women with respect."

In the wake of the news of the sex tape's release, it was reported the couple were planning to have another child, something the former Playboy model denies.

Kendra, who turns 25 this Saturday (12.06.10), said: "There are rumours out there saying we want to fix our marriage by having another child - that is such cr*p.

"We're not going to have kids just because a sex tape came out. That's just stupid."

The 'Girls Next Door' star also denied suggestions she is actually pleased the tape has come out, and that she had a role in its release by pornography company Vivid Entertainment.

She said: "I'm a very open person, very honest about my life, but a sex tape is definitely not what I wanted in my life.

"I didn't do it out of fame, I didn't do it for money - I did it because I was in love with him. It just sucks. It's really embarrassing."
