(Newser) – It seems to be over between Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett after almost nine years of marriage. The relationship between the 32-year-old former Playboy Playmate and Girl Next Door and the 35-year-old NFL star has been rumored to be on the rocks, and Wilkinson shared a video on Instagram Stories Monday in which she hinted that they would be divorcing, E! reports. "Ten years. I did everything I could," she said in the video. "It wasn't good enough. I will always love him. My heart will always remain open for him. I believed in forever, I really did. Guess it's just not meant to be. I'm so scared but I have to get strong for my kids. I will." Wilkinson and Baskett married in 2009 and have two children, ages 3 and 8, together.

Wilkinson also posted a picture from her wedding day with "I believed" printed on it, and tweeted, "Today will be the saddest, scariest day of my life. Today i will have to be the strongest I’ve ever been. Today, my rebirth begins." As People reports, back in 2014 Baskett was alleged to have had an affair with a transgender model while Wilkinson was pregnant, though he denies "engag[ing] in anything," and their marriage has struggled ever since. Multiple sources told the magazine last week that a divorce announcement was imminent; Wilkinson had also made a series of emotional Instagram posts last week and fans noticed she wasn't wearing her wedding ring.
