Only a few months after giving birth to her first child, daughter Rainbow Aurora, Holly Madison is back in her bikini. The former Girls Next Door star and Hugh Hefner’s ex-girlfriend shared her bikini photoshoot with fans on her blog. The new mom wrote, “Here are some recently published pics of my last bikini shoot I did a few months after giving birth to Rainbow! As you can see, I was in denial enough to not buy a big enough bikini. Lol. I probably won’t do another shoot until I am at my goal weight, but this one was fun.” Madison and her fiancé, Pasquale Rotella, welcomed their baby girl in March. “I’ve never been more in love than I am today. I was finally able to hold my daughter. I’m truly the luckiest man in the world,” the proud father said at the time. The former Peepshow star added, “I know I will be an incredibly loving, supportive, and involved mom. My hope is I can help my kids find their passions.” The parents were subject to some backlash over their child’s name, Rainbow, but Madison quickly defended the name choice, saying, “There was a girl in my school a few years younger than me named Rainbow and I was so envious of her name because it was so pretty and unusual. She was a perfectly normal, well-adjusted, sporty girl, by the way, so I’m not worried about my daughter being 'traumatized' by having an unusual name." Madison and Rotella officially got engaged last month. image: Holly Madison's blog
