April 11 (UPI) -- Kendra Wilkinson's husband, Hank Baskett, has responded to her divorce filing.

The 35-year-old former NFL player filed a response Friday, April 6, just hours after Wilkinson moved to end their eight-year marriage, according to TMZ.

Us Weekly reported Baskett also cited irreconcilable differences for the split. The pair both listed their date of separation as Jan. 1, 2018, and are requesting joint physical and legal custody of their two children.

Wilkinson, who shares 8-year-old son Hank and 3-year-old daughter Alijah with Baskett, filed for divorce Friday after breaking down about her marriage in an Instagram video April 2. She confirmed the split in a post the same day as her filing.

"Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man," the star wrote. "I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways. I'm beyond sad and heartbroken because i did believe in forever, that's why i said yes but unfortunately too much fear has gotten in the way."

"We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy n never know the difference other than seeing mama smile," she added. U will prob see us together a lot but it's because there's no hate. Love wins in this case it's just looks a little funny."

Today is the last day of my marriage to this beautiful man. I will forever love Hank and be open but for now we have chosen to go our own ways. I’m beyond sad and heartbroken because i did believe in forever, that’s why i said yes but unfortunately too much fear has gotten in the way. We are both amazing parents and our kids will be happy n never know the difference other than seeing mama smile. Sometimes love looks funny. We are told to make sacrifices in life if it’s true love well in this case it’s me. I want to see happy Hank again... i miss that. Marriage was just a piece of paper and a piece of jewelry but our hearts will always be real. U will prob see us together a lot but it’s because there’s no hate. Love wins in this case it’s just looks a little funny. Thank you Hank for a beautiful 8 years of marriage and 2 beautiful kids. I feel so thankful and blessed. ❤️
