Holly Madison is getting ready for a new role: motherhood.
The former “Girls Next Door” star and Playboy Playmate is expecting her first child with her boyfriend of nine months, 38-year-old party promoter Pasquale Rotella.
“I’ve always wanted to be a mom,” the 33-year-old tells Us Weekly. “But I thought it would take longer!”
Madison, who is currently starring in the Las Vegas burlesque show Peepshow, says at twelve weeks along she’s feeling great.
“I’ve been lucky! No morning sickness, but I do get a little nauseous,” she admits. “It happens before my show, so I keep ginger ale backstage.”
On Wednesday morning Madison thanked her fans for all the well-wishes, writing on her Twitter page, “Thank you for all the words of congratulations! ☺”
