Holly Madison shocked fans when she named her daughter Rainbow Aurora Rotella. Now, you may be blown away by the name she gave to her newborn son.
The former Girls Next Door star took to Instagram to reveal his name on Friday, Aug. 12. Of course, the 36-year-old had to follow suit when it came to giving her son a unique name.
“I’m so happy to be at home with a healthy baby boy, Forest Leonardo Antonio Rotella,” she captioned a photo of herself holding an oversized baby blue teddy bear in front of a graffiti mural. “Thank you for all the kind comments over the past few days.”
And now, fans have been getting flashbacks to the classic ’90s movie Forrest Gump, starring Tom Hanks. How could you forget that scene with the iconic line, “Run, Forrest, run!”
Madison and her husband, Pasquale Rotella, announced their baby news in matching Instagram posts earlier this week, according to a report via Us Weekly. They both shared photos of baby Forest’s hand next to their own.
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 & 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 & touched! We'll be heading home from the hospital later & I'll be posting photos of the new baby soon. Thanks 'n love you ALL! ????????????????????????????????
“[Y]Yesterday Holly, Rainbow & I welcomed a healthy 8-pound, 14-ounce baby boy to the family,” the proud dad wrote on his Instagram post. “Now I’m holding my beautiful son at the hospital reading amazing birthday wishes from all of you.”
In addition, Madison’s rep released a statement to Us Weekly about her happy baby news.
“Holly Madison and husband Pasquale Rotella are thrilled to welcome a son to their family. The baby boy, who joins big sister Rainbow Aurora, was born Sunday, Aug. 7 at 8:44 p.m. and weighed 8lbs 14oz.”
According to E! News, the reality star has already been seen for the first time since giving birth. Madison was seen running errands and grabbing coffee near a coffee shop in West Hollywood. She gave a smile to the paparazzi as she was photographed wearing an oversized black star-print cardigan with black tights underneath. Madison pulled her look together with black lace-up boots and a black handbag. The blonde beauty wore her hair down in loose waves and wore minimal makeup.
Insiders even spoke to the outlet about the former Playboy Playmate, saying, “She was on her way home. She looked really happy…She was glowing. She looked beautiful.”
It was just last week when the media was rude about Madison’s very pregnant sighting. She was seen leaving a doctor’s office wearing a black-and-white striped long-sleeve T-shirt with black leggings on Friday, Aug. 5. TMZ named Madison’s second child “Bruiser,” while Radar Online Photoshopped the candid photos of her pregnant belly. Check out the insensitive tweets for yourself below.

The celebrity gossip outlet claims that Madison “had no trouble showing off her baby bump,” but how could she hide it? Then, they proceeded to ask their readers if they believe if “Madison is ready to pop.”
As for Rotella, he finally has some other good news to share, according to a Los Angeles Times report. After he was indicted in 2012 on six felony counts for bribery, embezzlement, and conspiracy related to raves held in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and the Los Angeles Sports Arena, he pleaded no contest on Thursday, Aug. 11, to a single misdemeanor.
After a judge found that the evidence was tampered with, Rotella walked away with three years probation and a $150,000 fine.
Holly Madison and Pasquale Rotella married in September in 2013 at Disneyland California just when daughter Rainbow Aurora was 6 months old. Madison just released her latest memoir, The Vegas Diaries, the follow-up to her scandalous book, Down the Rabbit Hole.
