Hours after confirming her split from husband Hank Baskett, Kendra Wilkinson Baskett kicked back with a drink and video game.

“Lol drunk bunny gamer” the Kendra On Top star, 32, wrote alongside a picture of herself in a bunny ears filter on her Instagram Story.

In the snap, she appeared to be drinking from a shot glass while wearing a pair of headphones with a microphone that was attached to a video game controller resting on her chest.

She also added the hashtag “#fortnite,” likely referencing the cooperative game of the same name, where players battle zombie-like creatures.

Earlier in the day, the former Playboy model spent a “great day playing golf” with actor Jon Lovitz, whom she described on her Instagram Story as “one of my besties.”

Before picking up her video game controller, Wilkinson also worked on a puzzle with her daughter Alijah, 3, whom she shares with Baskett. The couple are also parents to son Hank IV, 8.

Alongside a video of her three-year-old putting together a colorful puzzle, the “proud mama” boasted about Alijah’s skills.

“She’s sooooo good at puzzles,” the 32-year-old wrote.

The former Playboy model confirmed the couple’s sad news on Friday, four days after alluding to the pair’s split in a series of emotional videos on her Instagram story.

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,” she captioned a photo of herself and Baskett. “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.”

Wilkinson and Baskett, 35, wed in 2009. Their marriage was rocked by scandal in 2014 when Hank allegedly had an affair with a transgender model while Kendra was eight months pregnant.

A Tennessee father has been accused of killing his 5-year-old son with autism, who was previously reported missing by his parents, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations said.

Joseph Ray Daniels, 28, was arrested in Tennessee on Saturday and charged with one count of criminal homicide, according to authorities. He has not yet entered a plea and is expected to be arraigned on Monday, authorities confirmed to PEOPLE.

The TBI said a joint investigation with the Dickson County Sheriff’s Office determined that the man “intentionally killed” his son, Joseph “Joe Clyde” Daniels, who had autism and was non-verbal.

The 5-year-old was first reported missing on Wednesday, after which the TBI issued an Endangered Child alert and began “an exhaustive search” for the boy near his home, according to the TBI.

Authorities said an investigation that opened Friday “determined that the child’s father, Joseph Daniels, intentionally killed his son sometime during the night of April 3-4, in their residence and then hid his son’s body.” The search for his body is ongoing, authorities told PEOPLE.

According to a tweet from the TBI, Joe was last seen on Tuesday “wearing pajamas with a skeleton print” at his family’s home.

“Unfortunately, it is with great sadness that I have to inform you of a turn of events,” Jason Locke, deputy director of TBI, said at a press conference on Saturday, according to ABC News.

At the press conference, Dickson County Sheriff Jeff Bledsoe told reporters that despite the arrest, the investigation is still ongoing, according to ABC.

“We’re not sure where the next turn will be or where the evidence will lead us,” Bledsoe added, according to the outlet.

After sharing an update on the case on Saturday, the TBI thanked all the volunteers who “gave time and resources this week to help search for Joe Clyde.”

“That work will continue by law enforcement today, so we might provide a small degree of closure for his family and friends,” they added alongside an image of the boy.

According to authorities, Joseph is currently being held at the Dickson County Jail on a $1 million bond.

After weeks of buzz about a split, Miranda Lambert and boyfriend Anderson East have called it quits, reports Us Weekly.

Reps for Lambert and East did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Earlier this month, the country star hinted at a possible breakup when she reflected on pouring her emotions into her music during a concert at the Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, Tennessee.

“I make it my mission every single time I step on the stage that no matter what, no matter where I am, I want to make you feel everything you could possibly feel,” Lambert said before performing an acoustic version of her hit “Tin Man,” as reported by local news outlet Knox News.

“I want you to feel sad, mad, happy and nostalgic and really pissed sometimes. That’s my favorite. And part of feelings is also heartbreak, unfortunately,” she continued.

“But fortunately for me, I can use it for my art or whatever. I like to write sad songs. I like to listen to sad songs, so I want to sing y’all one,” Lambert concluded.

The country singers first began dating in the fall of 2015 months after she and ex-husband Blake Shelton announced their divorce in July.

The following April, Lambert, 34, and East, 30, made their romance red carpet official at the 2016 ACMs, where they cozied up inside the show as she picked up the award for female vocalist of the year.

The “Vice” singer — who’s remained tight-lipped about her latest relationship — briefly mentioned East in Cosmopolitan‘s first-ever country issue last year.

“The last thing I googled was my boyfriend Anderson East to show off his cute pictures,” she told the magazine.

In January, East opened up about his relationship to InStyle, saying there was “true admiration there and a large level of understanding on both sides.”

“It’s always difficult to be a traveling musician and still keep things together,” he added. “Understanding is definitely a huge factor.”

While Lambert has stayed mum about East in the media, she’s shared glimpses of their life together on her Instagram throughout their two years together.

“My favorite Bama boy turned 30 today. He owns the stage and he owns my heart. Thanks @andersoneast for inspiring me in so many ways. You are a light that could outshine the sun. I love making memories with you,” she captioned a tribute for his 30th birthday last July.

Lambert and East no longer follow each other on Instagram and were last photographed together in public at the 2017 CMA Awards in November.
