Holly Madison, former reality star of "The Girls Next Door," is now expecting a child with boyfriend Pasquale Rotella. Her first appearance last week did not make her pregnancy evident, although her second one revealed a growing baby bump.

Holly Madison is the former girlfriend to Hugh Heffner. While never being an official Playboy Playmate, the reality star appeared on "The Girls Next Door" along with other Playmate models and also did some photo shoots. Madison broke up with Hefner in 2008 and in 2009 proclaimed that she would never date again.
"I'm never dating anybody again. I don't need a man. I'm really happy with myself and being with my friends," she said during a People magazine interview. "I'm focused on forwarding my career. I'm working on producing my own shows. 'Girls Next Door' was a great place to start but it was somebody else's show. I'm just ready to move on."
But Madison switched notes after meeting her current boyfriend, Rotella, who she claimed inspired her to want children.
"Definitely being with the right guy has a lot to do with it," Madison told People in June. "My relationship is awesome. I'm happier than I've ever been in my personal life."
Madison was seen last week at Disneyland during Mickey's Halloween Party. The pregnant star appeared to not be showing as of yet, wearing a tight pink corset bodice that made her figure appear slim. But a photo taken only a few days later revealed that the star did in fact have a baby bump. She showed off her pregnancy at a "Forever Home Family Picnic" in Las Vegas on Oct. 13, according to the Huffington Post.
Madison has described her pregnancy so far as "easy."
"It's actually easier than I thought," Madison told E! News of being pregnant. "I haven't had any of the crazy side effects ... No morning sickness or anything yet. So I've been lucky!"
The former reality star is due in March.
