“Peepshow” star Holly Madison confirmed this morning that she is 12 weeks pregnant and expecting her first baby.
The platinum blonde beauty has been dating Electric Daisy Carnival founder Pasquale Rotella for just over six months. She was his front-row VIP guest this summer at EDC at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
In an interview with me in July, Holly talked about wanting to become a mother and raise a baby when she exits the hit adult burlesque show at Planet Hollywood in December.
“I’ve always wanted to have a baby and be a mom,” she told me.
The star of “The Girls Next Door” and “Holly’s World” says she will continue appearing in “Peepshow” through Dec. 30.
Holly, 33, sent out a tweet this morning as we learned the pregnancy news: “Thanks for all the congratulations.” I tweeted to her, “Congratulations to beautiful new mom-to-be Holly Madison, who this morning confirmed her first baby is due in February!” She replied, “Thanks, Robin! XO.”
Flying at 35,000 feet to New York, it’s a little difficult for me to get lots of intimate details, but one of her friends emailed me: “She is so happy. This is what she has wanted for a long time, although it’s a little earlier than she expected!”
The reality TV star, who was Playboy founder Hugh Hefner’s girlfriend and competed on “Dancing With the Stars,” plans to continue living in Las Vegas after her nearly four-year run in “Peepshow” ends and will commute to L.A. for TV assignments.
“Peepshow” released the following statement: “The producers of ‘Peepshow’ couldn’t be happier for Holly, as we know she has had a long desire to become a mother. We wish her a happy and healthy pregnancy.
“Tickets are still on sale through the end of 2012, and we are still working with Holly to determine the best schedule for everyone involved. We look forward to making a casting announcement soon.”
