Holly Madison, Hugh Hefner’s former No. 1 girlfriend, will soon be calling herself mommy. The 32-year-old former Playboy Playmate announced that she is planning to adopt a child.
E! Online reports that Madison is a former Playboy pin-up model, and has also co-starred in the reality series The Girls Next Door, which featured Hugh Hefner and two other Playmates. Holly Madison announced her decision by saying:
“I’ve started the adoption process. I really want to be a mommy.”
Madison also added that she decided to adopt instead of getting pregnant, because she has been too busy with her career lately to try to have a baby on her own. Not only has she been starring in her own reality spin-off show, Holly’s World, the Playboy model has also appeared in a hit Vegas show, as well as other events.
According to The Daily Mail, Holly Madison has employed Hold My Hand, an adoption and mentoring agency, to help her with the long and difficult process of adoption. Madison left the Playboy mansion in 2008, after Hugh Hefner vowed he would never get married again. She made no secret throughout their seven-year relationship that she wanted to be the Hefner’s third wife.
Hugh Hefner is now back together with his on-again-off-again fiance, Crystal Harris, who famously left Hefner at the altar on their wedding day.
Holly Madison’s other ex-boyfriends include magician Criss Angel, and reality TV star/musician Jark Barakat. There is no news on whether Holly’s current beau, Insomniac event planner Pasquale Rotella, will have anything to do with the adoption process.
