There's one thing Kendra Wilkinson doesn't have to worry about during her pregnancy: having an absentee fiancé.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett says he plans to be heavily involved in Wilkinson's pregnancy. "It takes two people to get pregnant. You can't have just one person doing everything," Baskett tells E! Online's Marc Malkin, "There's going to be some things I can't make, but I'm going to try my hardest to be at every appointment, at every meeting, everything."

But he can't help Wilkinson cope with morning sickness. "That's one of the hardest things, to be across the country while she's pregnant," he says. "I was like, 'Babe, I wish I could be there to hold your hair.'"

Between bouts of nausea, Wilkinson is learning all she can about pregnancy – and giving Baskett pop quizzes about childbirth. "I've seen more baby television shows since she got pregnant than I have in my entire life," says Baskett. "She's studying up on everything. She's constantly testing me and asking me questions."

Wilkinson and Baskett, who announced the pregnancy last week, are still determining the role that Hugh Hefner will play in the child's life. "Hef will be a part of the baby's life," says Baskett. "That's one of the first things we want to do is bring the baby out here to California and let Hef be introduced. I can see 'The Godfather' being a good name for Hef!"

But next up: a June 27 wedding. Baskett says that he's being "hands on" in the wedding plans. "I am trying to take care of most of what I can so I can take it off of her shoulders," he says. "I want her to enjoy this wedding, because if she's happy, I'm happy. That's all that matters.
