Yesterday the actress revealed the curious name that the couple chose for their little bundle of joy. Baby Girl will be named... drumroll please... Rainbow Aurora Rotella. Now, if that’s not a name that gets you bullied on the playground, we don’t know what is, but apparently Holly got it straight out of her own childhood years. "I wanted to give my daughter a unique name," the former Playboy model told E! News. "Growing up, there was a girl in my school named Rainbow and I was so envious of that name. I thought it was so pretty and unique!"

Gross Story Of The Week: Holly Madison To Eat Her Own Placenta


Holly Madison

Holly Madison, the American model and former Playboy bunny, says she is planning to ingest her own placenta once her daughter is born later this year. In a post written on her Celebuzz blog this week, the 33-year-old Girls Next Door star mused about the practice - a hotly debated topic amongst new mothers.

"This might sound gross, but I'm totally planning on having my placenta turned into pills I can take after giving birth," she wrote, adding, "I heard it helps women recover faster and I want to recover as quickly as I can!" It's becoming a popular thing to do in Hollywood circles, with Mad Men actress January Jones revealing she consumed her placenta in pills after giving birth to her son. "Your placenta gets dehydrated and made into vitamins," she told People magazine at the time. "It's something I was very hesitant about, but we're the only mammals who don't ingest our own placentas. It's not witch-crafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms!"

Madison and Jones aren't the only celebrities to try strange mother-child practices. Last year, a video of Alicia Silverstone pre-chewing food before feeding it into her young son's mouth went viral.

Holly Madison Kendra Wilkinson Jennifer Garner Bridget Marquardt Ben Affleck

Former Playboy model and television personality, Holly Madison, is expecting a baby girl in March, and seems unlikely to be asking former 'Girls Next Door' co-star Kendra Wilkinson for any help with the child, as they apparently don't speak anymore. Madison is planning to marry her current boyfriend Pasquale Rotella after the birth of their baby.

Madison explained that: ''Bridget and I are still friends, but I don't talk to anyone else. I moved on from the whole Playboy thing five years ago and really never looked back.

Holly Madison Expecting Baby Girl: Any Ideas For Names?


Holly Madison

Holly Madison - the former girlfriend of Hugh Hefner, now expecting a baby with Pasquale Rotella - is having a little girl. Pasquale let the news slip on Twitter this Tuesday (October 16), tweeting, "Off to Amsterdam and I already miss my girls," attaching a photo of a sonogram of her baby.

Responding to a flurry of congratulations, he added "We are very excited!" commenting a couple more times on his "little fairy tale princess." We guess Rotella might find himself in hot water with the Peepshow dancer, who told US Weekly earlier this month, "We're not telling anybody yet, but we found out and I'm really excited! I'm really excited about decorating the nursery, so we've already started buying some things there." The former Playboy bunny first broke news of the pregnancy in August, saying she had always wanted to be a mom. Though Pasquale has gone and ruined the surprise, Madison still has any potential names firmly locked away. She has said, "I don't want to say what the names are, but I will say that they're very unusual. Kind of Apple-ish, along those lines." Orange? Banana? Pomegranate?

The couple will welcome their first child together in March, 2012.
