Things will get personal on Monday's Dancing with the Stars when pro Louis Van Amstel hits the ballroom with partner Kendra Wilkinson and takes on the role of her husband Hank Baskett.
"Next week is definitely a more spiritual, sexy story. It's a love story," Wilkinson, 25, told PEOPLE of their upcoming performance. "It's about my husband and me. It's about how we fell in love and what went on behind the scenes of falling in love."
While there's practically no comparison between the dancer and the athlete, Van Amstel, 38, is ready to put his acting chops to the test.
"I'll take the challenge," he says. "If she has to take the challenge each week, I'll take the challenge in storyline week. I'll have to up my game."

For Kendra Wilkinson, Monday night's Dancing With the Stars premiere means more than just the start of the new season. It means she will officially bequeath diaper duty for her 15-month-old son, Hank, to her pro-football hubby Hank Baskett.
"Hank is in his off season, so he's going to be the man of the house," Kendra tells PEOPLE, noting that Hank is a more than capable Mr. Mom while she's working.
"We put together a schedule for the baby," Wilkinson explains. "We didn't want to just dump him off to a nanny or a babysitter. When Hank is playing football, I take care of the baby. Now Hank is in his off-season so he has time to be the man of the house. He will run the house and take care of the baby."

As part of a celebrity couple, Kendra Wilkinson has some experience battling the rumor mill.
But in the face of the most recent round of tabloid reports that she's splitting from her football-playing husband Hank Baskett, Wilkinson seems to be giving up the fight.
Asked on the nationally syndicated radio morning show Johnjay and Rich Friday about claims that she and Baskett, 28, are heading for divorce, she replied, "I don't think me clearing this up is going to make it [into the news] because they don't care. People are going to say what they want."

Kendra Wilkinson is back in the pages of Playboy – but still hasn't gone back on her word to husband Hank Baskett not to pose nude again for the magazine.
The star of Kendra on E! – and the former star of The Girls Next Door, about life with Hugh Hefner in the Playboy Mansion – explains the situation on her blog.
"I AM on the December cover of Playboy," she writes, "but it wasn't from a recent shoot. The photos are from a shoot I did 2 years ago when I was still living in the mansion."

Kendra Wilkinson is one busy lady.
Occupied with mommyhood, writing novels, making T.V. appearances and filming her own show, Wilkinson doesn't have a lot of time on her hands. But one thing she always makes a point to fit into her agenda? Getting hot and heavy with her hubby Hank Baskett (when he's in town, that is).
"One word: quickies," Wilkinson recently told PEOPLE when asked how she sneaks one-on-one time with Baskett into her busy schedule. "I'm all about those quickies. Sometimes it’s good to have some foreplay and all that, but quickies – I'm all about those."

Don't feel bad for Kendra Wilkinson because her husband, Hank Baskett, is always on the road playing football. Ironically, she says, it's been a great way to reconnect.
"It's awesome. It's not a bad thing. It's actually a great thing," Wilkinson, 25, told PEOPLE at the "Save Kendra" Halloween party on Saturday at the LAX nightclub in Las Vegas. "It's a way to step away from everything and actually get a chance to [get to] know each other again."
In that sense, she says, it's a "blessing in disguise."

Don't count on Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett to be the latest celebrity couple to split.
Amid rumors of trouble, Wilkinson took to Twitter to write: "How handsome do my 2 favorite men look???" and linked to photos of Baskett and their son, who turns 1 in December, on her Web site.
Internet reports surfaced that Wilkinson plans to move to L.A. with her son – but without her pro athlete husband. A source confirms the reality star will be splitting her time between California and Minnesota, where Baskett plays football for the Vikings, but only because of work.

Kendra Wilkinson wants to expand her family, but if it's up to her hubby Hank Baskett they'll be adding another baby sooner rather than later.
"Yeah, about baby number two, we're talking about it," the reality mom, 25, tells E! Online. "Hank the other day just freaking called me and was like, 'I want another baby. I want you pregnant.' "
Wilkinson isn't in a huge rush, but says she's "definitely" aiming to get pregnant next summer because she wants her son, Hank Baskett Jr., who turns 1 in December, to have a playmate. "I want them close in age," she explains.

"We're celebrating [baby Hank's] latest milestone tonight, which is a high-five," Wilkinson, 25, told PEOPLE at Wednesday's ESPY Awards in Los Angeles. "I taught him high-five."
