Kendra Wilkinson can't wait to start her own "family traditions" now she is a wife and mother.

The reality TV star and former Playboy playmate is gearing up for the festive season and hopes to make the holiday as wonderful for her husband Hank Baskett and newborn son Henry Randall Baskett IV as her mother did when she was younger.

Kendra, 24, tweeted: "Christmas was always a really big deal in my family and my mom always went all out to make it really special for me and my brother.

"I can't wait to start my own family traditions and I'm so excited to make every Christmas memorable for little Hank like my mom did for me!"

Former 'Girls Next Door' star Kendra married Hank in June and gave birth on December 11, but despite the pressures of caring for a newborn, she has been finding time to have fun with her husband during their first festive season as a married couple.

She later posted: "Hank and I just went at it in a snowball fight. It felt good to get outside and run around a little. We are two big kids!

"I have sooooo many amazing Xmas memories and I'm sure this one will top the rest now that I'm sharing it with my son and my hubby (sic)."
