Holly Madison expecting first child

Happy news for former Playboy Playmate Holly Madison: She's pregnant! No, Hugh Hefner isn't the dad.

Holly Madison expecting first child

Former Girls Next Door star Holly Madison made no secret of her desire to get married and become a mom. At least one of those dreams is coming true: She's pregnant! The former reality star is set to welcome a child with boyfriend Pasquale Rotella, her rep confirmed Wednesday.

"I've always wanted to be a mom," the 33-year-old told US Weekly, "but I thought it would take longer!"

She's 12 weeks pregnant, but has no plans to stop doing her Las Vegas burlesque show, Peepshow.

"I've been lucky! No morning sickness, but I do get a little nauseous," she added. "It happens before my show, so I keep ginger ale backstage."

Madison was so ready to be a mother that she started the adoption process earlier this year. "I've started the adoption process," she told InTouch Weekly. "I really want to be a mommy."

The blonde bombshell has had babies on the brain for a while.

"Perhaps, though I’m more concerned about having children in the future than getting married," she told BuzzNet last year. "Marriage is not the best thing that can happen to you, as a woman. If I woke up one morning and discovered I was getting married (be it to anyone) and that everything I’d accomplished for myself in the last few years was all a dream, I’d be devastated!"

We think Holly will make a great mother! Let's hope her boyfriend — and the baby daddy — is in it for the long haul, though we know she'll rock parenting no matter what.
