Holly Madison’s life is radically different from the one you likely saw her living on television several years back: As a former Girl Next Door, she was known as one of Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner’s three main girlfriends living at the infamous mansion.
Now, she’s known as a happily married wife and mother of… two, as of this week!
Sharing her newborn’s name via Instagram (Forest Leonardo Antonio Rotella), Holly gave Terrence Howard and wife Mira a run for their money in the cool baby name department while simultaneously giving daughter Rainbow Aurora a little brother to call his own.
Baby Forest also came just in time to be the perfect birthday present to Holly’s husband, Pasquale Rotella, who celebrated his 42nd birthday on August 8. It was an extra-special one for Pasquale, who not only received a new son, but his freedom, when he received a favorable verdict in a pending embezzlement case against him that accused the new dad of giving $2 million in illegal kickbacks to an events manager.
“Happy belated birthday to the best husband and dad @pasqualerotella,” Holly captioned this a celebratory shot of her and her man.
Also taking to Instagram to share his joy, Pasquale wrote the following:
“What an incredible week. A crazy, stressful start, which transformed into this magical moment. First, a five-year long indictment against me was finally dismissed; then yesterday Holly, Rainbow and I welcomed a healthy 8 pound, 14 ounce baby boy to the family. Now I’m holding my beautiful son at the hospital reading amazing birthday wishes from all of you. Definitely one of the most memorable weeks of my life! Lots of love to everyone who took the time to post, tag or send me a message online. I’m grateful and touched! We’ll be heading home from the hospital later and I’ll be posting photos of the new baby soon. Thanks and love you ALL!”
While he’s yet to make good on his promise to post those Forest pics, he DID share this cute snap of his son’s feeding time.
“Bottle service,” he joked.
