Wow, we had NO idea Hank Baskett was another celeb who's struggled with depression!
On Wednesday, Kendra Wilkinson's hubby described the hurt he endured prior to and after his alleged affair with Ava London.

The 32-year-old shared:
"For the past two years, I've gone through a serious struggle with depression, and during that time I lost the ability to open up to my best friend, Kendra. I had trouble thinking of the right thing to say the right way, especially in a situation like this, where it's your word against someone else's. One wrong word and I could lose everything."
It's really unfortunate that Baskett couldn't open up to Kendra when he needed her the most! Especially since talking it out could have prevented his marital indiscretions!
According to Hank, rock bottom arrived when his five year contract with the NFL ended.
The daddy of two revealed:
"I hit bottom. My greatest fear is losing my family. That's all I live for. His fear was rooted in the ending of his career. I completely lost my identity. I started holding everything in because I felt like no one could understand."
We can totally understand why Baskett experienced dark times after taking a blow to his career!
"There was a point when I felt I couldn't defend myself and there was no way for me to make it through this. It's an extremely tough feeling. But I realized there's no way I could ever check out on my kids and my wife. I'm not a quitter."
Gosh, how terrible.
We're glad Hank has moved past his depression AND we're thrilled to hear he's talking with a therapist.
