Just seven days after Holly Madison gave birth to her first baby, the former Playmate opens her home to In Touch for an exclusive interview and photo shoot to introduce daughter Rainbow Aurora to the world.
“Just holding her is so much fun,” Holly gushes in the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands now. “Even the delivery was easy — I was actually laughing as I was pushing!”
EXCLUSIVE: Holly and Pasquale Welcome Baby Girl!
The 33-year-old star delivered her 7-pound, 2-ounce beauty, whose father is boyfriend Pasquale Rotella, on March 5. “I had an epidural, so it was fun. She made it easy on me.”
Holly tells In Touch that Rainbow’s unusual moniker comes from a former schoolmate. “I was always envious of her name!” explains the new mom, who ignores the jabs — including those who have sniped that it sounds stripper-esque. “If getting teased about her name is the worst thing that’s going to happen to her,” says Holly, “bring it on.”

For now, the star and Pasquale are blissfully enjoying everything about parenthood — sleepless nights and all. “Like all babies, she has her moments. But I’m so in awe of her that I even think her screams are cute!”
In fact, she’s already making plans to expand her brood. “We want Rainbow to have lots of brothers and sisters. I’d love to have six!”
