“We’ve already decided to name our son Hank Baskett IV. Hank’s dad and his grandfather were both named Hank, so it was very important to us to carry on the family tradition.” – Kendra on choosing her son’s name before he was born.

“Baby Hank got himself into sports! I hung a tennis ball in the garage and at first he was just [hitting it] with the tennis racquet to develop coordination, but now he has a little wiffle ball bat he’s working on. And he’s a tremendous soccer player!” – papa Hank on his son’s love of sports.

“He is the smartest kid, he can put together a five-piece puzzle right now. His concentration is amazing I can’t believe that when we are filming he can just sit down and put together a five piece puzzle so quickly, he has great concentration.” – proud mama Kendra on her son’s cognitive development.

“I find it pretty funny that Little Hank has fans. Definitely never expected this when I thought of having children. But it’s been good. What’s funny is he doesn’t mind the paparazzi at all. In fact there are times where he will notice them even before we do. Most of the paparazzi that have shot Little Hank have been very understanding and respectful. They know not to come between us and him and to keep the proper distance.” – Hank on his son’s “fame.”

    He’s a beautiful child but it wouldn’t hurt to maybe trim his hair a little. Just my opinion.

    People get over HIS HAIR…I like that he doesnt look like every other boring kid and their boring same haircut as every other kid, he looks too cute I love his hair!
    Honestly why does anyone even care about a 3 year olds hair, get a life and focus on your own kids.

    Beautiful child but I agree that he could use a haircut. On the other hand, he’s not my child so who cares what I think..lol

    I am not one for longer hair on boys (of any age) but his curls are to die for so I say leave them! He is one gorgeous little dude!

    Marie – the only one who needs to get a life is you. If someone’s opinion upsets you that much, then maybe this site isn’t for you.

    He’s adorable and his curls are so cute. I thought he was older, like 4 or 5. I guess he’s tall for his age. Happy B-day, Hank! 😀
