When asked if she had regrets, the former Playmate said: ’The only thing I can really say is not paying attention to severe depression with my husband, I wished to God I had.’

The 29-year-old then broke down in tears, as she told her friends: ’There is such a thing as depression you know and even a big guy like to [Jake Quickenden], you have to hear people’s cries and I didn’t.’

Kendra went onto add that Hank would often come to bed crying and she ‘wasn’t there for him.’

Back in June, Kendra’s perfect marriage was shattered when rumours arose that Hank had cheated on her with a transgender model.

At the time, the couple had a four-year-old and six-month-old and Kendra was recovering from post-natal depression.

‘I would cry myself to sleep every night,’ said Wilkinson.

Following therapy, the couple are now working on making their marriage work, with Hank blaming his transgression on the depressive episode he was going through.
