Kendra Wilkinson is celebrating her first Easter as a single woman.

The reality star, 33, wished her fans and followers a Happy Easter along with a photo of her and her children: son Hank IV, 9, and daughter Alijah Mary, who turns 5 in May.

“Happy Easter thanks @iamjessicahall for hosting a great party,” Wilkinson captioned the family picture.

The mother of two marked the day with a party at her best friend Jessica Hall’s home, where Wilkinson decorated cookies and eggs with her two kids.

This year’s holiday marks the former Girls Next Door star’s first Easter after she finalized her divorce from Hank Baskett. In February, a judge signed off on the former couple’s divorce judgment and they were restored to the status of single persons, according to court documents obtained by The Blast.

The pair agreed to split joint legal and physical custody of their two children.

“[Kendra] was of course heartbroken when her marriage fell apart, but soon realized this is what’s best for everyone,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “She’s focusing on herself, her health and most importantly her children. She’s looking forward to what the future holds.”

After nearly nine years of marriage, Wilkinson filed for divorce from Baskett in April 2018. The same day she filed, Baskett responded with his filing and mirrored her documents. Both cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split, listed their date of separation as Jan. 1, 2018.

Last year, Wilkinson shared a slideshow of adorable photos of her son and daughter celebrating Easter with baskets of colored eggs. Her post was just a week after multiple sources told PEOPLE that Wilkinson’s marriage to Baskett was under serious strain.

The week before Easter, Wilkinson enjoyed a fun trip to the Coachella Music and Arts Festival with her friends.

After leaving the festival early, Wilkinson explained her decision to do so on Instagram.

“I was invited to all the amazing events out there and was truly excited to go but there was one thing holding me back besides having a lot to do for my babies and that was the fear of one picture getting out of me dancing maybe with one eye closed and it being spun that I’m going downhill in my life,” she wrote.

“I’ve worked too damn hard in my life and this last year to become the strongest most amazing woman I’ve ever known, best mom award type s— LOL,” Wilkinson continued. “There was the side that got paranoid that the public image would harm my well being even though I’m doing nothing wrong. It’s a weird place to be right now because I am single and fun but I’m still in the public eye so if I’m going to still be here I want to represent myself properly, even during my fun times.”

Easter is not the first holiday Wilkinson has spent with her kids after separating from Baskett.

For Valentine’s Day, the star spent the day with her daughter as seen on Instagram.

In December 2018, Wilkinson opened up about celebrating her first Christmas since her split, telling PEOPLE: “It’s definitely going to be a new year for us, new holiday for us, as a separated family.”
