Kendra Wilkinson feels like "Supermom".

The 24-year-old star - who gave birth to her first child Hank Baskett IV in December - is glad she and her American footballer husband Hank Baskett decided not to wait before starting a family because she doesn't think she would have coped so well as an older mother.

She said: "It's the best thing that's ever happened to me. It's so great to be a young mom. I can guarantee, if I'd waited 10 years to have a baby, I'd be in so much more pain and stuff. I feel like Supermom. If I need to lift a stroller down the steps, I lift it myself. I'm young and strong."

The former Playboy model also admitted she is overwhelmed by the strength of the bond between herself and her baby.

She added to the Jacksonville Observer: "The best part is the bond between us, the love. He knows I'm his mom now. Every time I walk away, he cries, which is painful and a negative thing, but also, every time I'm there, he laughs and smiles. Besides Hank, I'm the only one my baby can recognise and have that immediate comfort with. Wherever we go, if I'm there, he's happy."
