(Newser) – Hugh Hefner is losing another girlfriend, and she’ll go directly into another man’s arms, AP reports. Kendra Wilkinson is set to marry Philadelphia Eagles receiver Hank Baskett, but Hef isn’t sore: He will give her away at the estate they both called home. Wilkinson, 23, dated Hefner since 2004, and follows Holly Madison in breaking up with the 82-year-old Playboy chief.

“I have given her my blessing,” Hefner said, “and will be giving her away at a very special wedding ceremony at the Playboy Mansion this coming June.”
