Former Girl Next Door, Holly Madison, is pregnant with her second child – and it’s a boy! Madison and her husband Pasquale Rotella, already have a three-year-old daughter named Rainbow Aurora. Holly told US Weekly that her second pregnancy has been much easier than her first with little nausea or other symptoms.
Madison had a New York Times bestseller with her book, Down the Rabbit Hole; an account of her time spent living in the Playboy Mansion. Holly explained to Yahoo! that the book was her attempt to tell her side of the story. “I never had a voice. It was always shaped by the TV show or by Playboy or Hef himself. But I want my daughter to know why I made the decisions I did.”
The 36-year-old reality TV star continued, “From day one I’ve tried to raise [Rainbow] to know she has value, her body parts have value, and she doesn’t have to do something cheap or tawdry to get attention. If she wanted to – and God forbid she did – I would tell her my whole experience with it and I’d be honest that it wasn’t what I thought it would be.”
Madison will release her second book, titled The Vegas Diaries, in mid-May. The follow-up to her first book is described a “candid, humorous, and captivating memoir chronicling her journey toward reinvention and self-acceptance.”
