She's packed her bags, moved out of the Playboy mansion, wrapped up another season of The Girls Next Door and started filming her own reality show. Up next for Kendra Wilkinson? Walking down the aisle – and starting a family.

"We always talk about [having kids]," Wilkinson tells PEOPLE about her plans with fiancé Hank Baskett. "He wants kids so [badly], and I do, too."

The couple are so serious about children, they've even been coming up with names. "My first initial is K and my middle name is Leigh, so we were thinking of Kaleigh," she says. "And he's Hank Baskett III, so of course I'm going to have a Hank Baskett IV!"

Wilkinson, 23, whose engagement to Baskett, 26, a wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles, took place in November. She will change her name to Kendra Baskett – because "we're old fashioned," she says – and is looking forward to having "modern but classic fairytale" wedding at the Playboy mansion in June, despite the fact she's "overwhelmed" with all the planning.

She'll Miss Hef

"It's going to be a wedding – not a Playboy mansion party," she insists, adding that the ceremony will take place in the front yard of the estate and that her brother (and not ex-boyfriend Hugh Hefner, as was previously reported) "will walk me down the aisle and give me away."

For the star of The Girls Next Door, whose season finale airs March 1 on E!, star, leaving the mansion has had both its ups and downs. For starters, she no longer has 24-hour butler and maid staff available. But more importantly, "I'll miss Hef the most," she says.

The upside of her new life? "That I'm engaged, of course!"

"These five years of my life at the Playboy mansion just went by so fast," Wilkinson says. "I've changed in positive ways. I think people were thinking I was going to take the wrong turn, go crazy, be a party girl and just go downhill. Instead, I'm settling down – but at the same time, I do want to still have fun!"
