The newlyweds attended a VIP reception at West Hollywood baby boutique Bel Bambini benefiting the Healthy Child Healthy World organization on Friday, where they browsed excitedly through everything from baby bottles to high-tech strollers.
"This is our first day of really getting prepared," Wilkinson told PEOPLE.
"We're like kids in a candy store here," Baskett added. "Coming in here just made it so exciting. She has a glow, I have a glow."
Although Baskett held up baby blue onesies to show Wilkinson, the couple kept mum on the sex of their baby. "We can't wait to find out the gender so we can get more prepared," Wilkinson said.
Even if the event marked their first foray into baby shopping, Wilkinson and Baskett say they have already thought long and hard about what kind of parents they want to be. "I'm definitely going to be very strict," Wilkinson said. "I actually grew up around a lot of bad, so it's going to be easy for me to detect what's bad. I'm such a protector."
And just because they’re preparing the nest doesn't mean that Wilkinson and Baskett are done with their honeymoon stage.
"The best part is knowing I have this partner for life," Wilkinson said of married life. "I found the best man out there for me and my child. We're in it for the long run."
