Two weeks after becoming a mother, Holly Madison is giving the first glimpse of her darling daughter, Rainbow Aurora. In the debut photos of the infant, the former Girls Next Door star cradles her pink-clad little one, who was born at 7 lbs. just before midday on March 5.
“Just holding her is so much fun,” Madison says in the latest issue of In Touch, on newsstands now. “Like all babies, she has her moments. But I’m so in awe of her that I even think her screams are cute!”
Rainbow is the first child for Madison, 33, and her boyfriend, Pasquale Rotella, 38.
“We couldn’t be any more overjoyed than at this moment,” Madison gushed, announcing the news of her new baby.
“I’ve never been more in love than I am today as, after months of waiting, I finally was able to hold my daughter for the first time,” Rotella added. “Holly and I are looking forward to spending some quiet time with our baby and enjoying our new family. I’m truly the luckiest man in the world.”
Though the couple raised a few eyebrows with their name choice for their bambino, Madison stands by the moniker, which was inspired by a former classmate.
“I have always loved the name Rainbow,” she wrote on her Celebuzz blog. “There was a girl in my school a few years younger than me named Rainbow and I was so envious of her name because it was so pretty and unusual. I’m not worried about my daughter being ‘traumatized’ by having an unusual name…. I want my daughter to be proud of who she is and learn to speak up and stand up for herself at a young age.”
