Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett proposed to Playboy Playmate girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson atop the Space Needle in Seattle where the Eagles played last weekend, according to E! Online. The Web site says family members of Baskett and Wilkinson were both present for the proposal and that she said yes. E-mails to Playboy and Eagles PR were not immediately returned this morning. We'll let you know what they have to say.

UPDATE: A Playboy spokesman just got back to us with a prepared statement from Wilkinson's octogenarian ex-Hugh Hefner, who, get this, will be giving her away. "Kendra Wilkinson has met someone who she would like to spend the rest of her life with. His name is Hank Baskett, a wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles, and he popped the question last Saturday.  I have given her my blessing and will be giving her away at a very special wedding ceremony at the Playboy Mansion this coming June," says Hef.

No word on whether the wedding will be shot for E!s "The Girls Next Door," or if the show will still air next June. After we first reported on Wilkinson dating Baskett, one of Hef's other "girlfriends" Holly Madison went public with her relationship with illusionist Criss Angel and Hefner acknowledged the relationships were in transition. Maybe the Iggles can get Wilkinson to pose in next year's Eagles Cheerleaders Calendar, which is already pretty close to Playboy.
