Holly Madison Expecting First Child

Months after making her intentions clear, Holly Madison is finally going to be a mom.

The former Holly’s World and The Girls Next Door star, 32, is expecting a baby in March with Pasquale Rotella, PEOPLE confirms.

“Holly and I are so excited to announce that we are going to be parents,” Rotella tells PEOPLE. “We’re in love and counting down the days until we meet our beautiful baby. I can hardly believe how lucky I am.”

“I’ve wanted kids and that’s something I’m definitely doing as soon as possible,” Madison told PEOPLE in June, shortly after declining to renew her Peepshow contract in anticipation of motherhood.

After years spent dating Hugh Hefner, Madison credits her current boyfriend with helping her to decide that the time is right.

“Definitely being with the right guy has a lot to do with it,” explains Madison. “My relationship is awesome. I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my personal life.”

How excciting I know Holly will make a great Mom!!!!

Beth A on

So happy for her! She has wanted this for so long. Babies are a blessing and she will finally be blessed with one. Congrats Holly!

Elspeth on

Babies are what happens when a sperm and an egg meet. Not so much a blessing as much as biology. But nice platitude.

LoveWithoutFear on

I have two children am not married to the father & have no plans to. We are committed to our children and our life. But why does a piece of paper matter so deeply to some of you? Why care so passionately about a life that does not belong to you? Some people believe in marriage- great for them, it’s personally not something I feel necessary. I wake up everyday committed and happy – without having to piss on the leg of my partner. I feel happy for anyone encountering a joyful milestone- whether it be: marriage, a birth/pregnancy, new house, religious moment etc. I pass no judgment, I am given a short time to live and thrive- I refuse to waste my time on meeting social demands to please the public. Does not being married, not believing in a god, and not following traditions make me matter less in the world? Thats sad if someone says yes. This is my choice, my life, my decisions. The people that say they won’t judge the non-religious but will pray for us, you guys are hysterical- just another way to try to press your views on others!! I don’t treat the religious believers negatively, I don’t care if you believe & practice- if you’re happy, that’s what matters. You’re not a harmful, hurtful person- that matters. If your gay and happy about it- THAT’S FANTASTIC. Love is love. I am living my dreams and making friends along the way- why do so many of these posts fester in hatred?? If you have something negative to say, you honestly just make yourself look bad. Let it go, to get worked up over some Internet post is pathetic. So what if people congratulated Holly?? There’s a comment box so people can freely do so. So what if you don’t agree with HER choice? No one cares in the grand scheme of things- voicing your opinion won’t change anything. Why bring up Snooki into this feed?? Thats petty and plain immature… You can’t judge anyone because you don’t know their whole story. It’s not for any Internet surfer to say whether A, B, or C, will be a good parent, spouse, or employee even. Any feed you get is filtered through media, so thinking you know the “truth” is naive.

“a better judge of character is not what people say about you but what you speak of others”

Megan on

Elspeth- you obviously have never known the joy of being a parent. Sad. If you do ever become a parent, I hope that you’ll look at your baby as more than biology.

Mechelle on

Elspeth, get a life! You know exactly what she meant. What is with everyone! Wether you believe in God or not a baby is a blessing. Grow up and stop fighting over religion, let people believe what they want! Don’t shove your non beliefs down everyone’s throat and we shouldn’t be shoving them down yours!

Stephanie on

OMG I’m so happy for her. Holly is such a wonderful person she deserves happiness!!

Elissa on

Yeah, Congrats to Holly and Pasquale!!! It’s good to see her happy!

Nicole on

I used to love watching Holly on the Girls Next Door! I am so excited for her!

Monique on

This is awesome for her. She’s always said she wanted to be a mom in interviews and on her shows. Congrats to Holly 🙂

KAG on

Whatever happened to marriage before children?

Wendy on

It’s 2012. There is no right or wrong way anymore.

Anonymous on

I agree! Everybody has babies with “boyfriends”! What about husbands???

kelly on

I agree….if hes good enough for a baby daddy then he should be good enough for a husband. some people take longer picking out shoes then they do picking a father for thier kids

Jen B on

It’s 2012..being married before having children is less common…congrats to both Holly and Pasquale!!!

Sharon on

She will be a great Mother, congrats to her.

BW on

Congratulations Holly, you’ll be an incredible mom!

Ginny on

I am so excited for you I have been a long time fan of the girls next door and their individual projects. GOOD FOR YOU !!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations to them! It’s nice since she’s been wanting this for such a long time.

Shannyn on

Congrats Holly! It’s so cute to see her with Roman on her tv show, she loves him like her own

analyzer on

Hmm… I wonder when Americans will ever find anything sinful.Americans think they have a right to behave in whatever kinda way they desire.You did not create yourselves for crying out loud,whether you believe in any religion or not,you people MUST answer to GOD for all your sins.Why can’t women wait to get married first?filling our universe with endless bastards!Pray for a husband,then have a child.Always claiming freedom of choice/freewill cos of their weak faith or lack thereof.*smh*!

Karina on

Lol@analyzer stupidity in the morning 🙂

Jessica on

God is soooo proud of you right now *said in the most sarcastic voice ever* People like you are what makes most people skeptical of christians. There is a right way to witness to people and being a judgmental prick isn’t it. Just remember that you are going to have to answer to God also.

Shelby on

Wow you are so judgmental! Since when is ANY baby not a blessing?? You must believe that a pregnancy born out of rape is okay too. Unbelievable that bigots such as yourself are allowed to voice their opinion. Good for her for finding happiness. And for the record.: I’ve been married for 10 years and am now just expecting our first. Sure hope I raise this one better than your mama raised you!

analyzer on

Hahahahahahahaha,gosh just can’t stop laughing,at the same time holding my breath for the foul stench of fear from all of you. To the one that doesn’t believe in GOD,whether you like it or not,he created you and you MUST face him when you die,key word here is MUST.To those saying am judgemental,of course that’s what all the aimless losers say,whatever religion you choose,or if you don’t accept any,ALL say bearing a child out of wedlock is a sin,so I didn’t judge,that’s just what it is ok?As for the one saying am heartless cos I call it a bastard,hello?last time I checked the dictionary,Bastard defines any child born out of wedlock,so there! Criticize all you want people,Yes GOD does exist whether you shout against it from the rooftops or not and you must answer to him,ok?better get ready for that.

trysha on

Boy oh boy. Some people really need a life. I’m truly happy for Holly. One of you need to get off the moral band wagon, since you’re the only one on it. Best wishes to you ,Holly. You will make an exceptional mom!!

Anonymous on

My sister was raped and gave birth to 2u beautiful boys. Rape is diploable but babies are beautiful!

Julz on

Interesting that you would have such strong views on “bastard children”. Reality is WOMEN aren’t the only ones who have children without being married MEN are equally involved. It’s disgusting in the world we live in today that you would even use the word bastard to describe a child. Maybe that’s a little sinful. Being judgemental of others is also pretty sinful. If ur gonna preach the word of GOD you might wanna start by not being so full of hate and judgement. I’m married with children but that doesn’t make me any better than the next woman who isn’t.

Anonymous on

Some people don’t believe in God, or your definition of God. Prove they are wrong. Marriage doesn’t make you a good parent. Just the fact that you would call a child of unwed parents a bastard in todays society helps me realize how ignorant you are. Congratulations to Holly. I hope she has a wonderful experience as a parent!

Charleigh on

I’ve gotten this far in life without the help of prayer and God. That includes two bouts of cancer. Save your prayer for someone who wants it. By the way, I grew up in a house with nut bag religious parents who kicked me out when I started to question my faith at fifteen. Then, when I was first diagnosed with cancer at 16, my biological mother told me that it was God’s way of punishing me for my insolence and that she hopes I live hell on earth until I subcome to my cancer at which point Satan will collect my soul. Who says that to their child? So excuse me if I have no faith. I want no part in something that creates that much ugliness.

Charleigh on

Sorry. Somehow my comment got attached to the wrong thread. Disregard it.

Kelly on

The only thing sinful is your behavior, calling innocent children bastards, you are a nutcase! What gives you the right to judge anyone, you are not god, and god loves everyone, no exceptions

Anonymous on

I am so sorry that your parents did not give you unconditional love Charleigh. That is terrible! God Bless you!

Charleigh on

Question: How are we suppose to answer to God if we aren’t religious? It’s a contradiction. I’m not sure where you learned about biology but here in America we learned that a human is created by a sperm and an egg, not God. This is the 21st Century. People are learning there is more to life than the bible. It’s time for you to get your head out of Gods butt and join reality. By the way, America isn’t the only country losing their grip on faith. Russia and China are too.

really on

Answer: religion and God are 2 different things, look them up in the dictionary. If you study religions you will find that not all religions believe in God or a god.

Charleigh on

I am aware that God and religion are two different things and that not all religions believe in a God or Gods. However, Analyzer is referring to a religion with a God. My question was directed towards which ever religion he/she was referring to.

Anonymous on

Maybe you need to read the bible more. God created everything on this earth and by the way he is the only one who has blessed your stupid ass with life. So for me I’m going to continue to read and honor the bible. I’m going to keep my head inside God butt cause he is the only one who can save this world. You need a strong prayer Charleigh.

Christine on

You are mean, cruel and I hope your husband cheats on you with me and gives me a bastard baby.
Oh…and by the way, I hope you never go to any hospital in Boston…My “bastard” son is an ER doctor who could possibly save your life.

CCE on

This is to analyzer, but it won’t let me reply.

The Bible is not an accurate account of history. It’s a compilation of short stories used to teach morals and lessons.

I can picture you in your mom’s basement with your tin foil hat on and your virgin Mary candle.

krobertts on

As a Christian who also believes marriage should come before babies, I find the tone of your comment to be hateful and ignorant. First, sin is not an American problem, its a people problem. We haves ALL sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. 2nd, what is your point in being so accusatory. You can disagree with someone without being hateful.

Tanni on

Wow, someone hasnt had their coffee yet!!

It’s 2012… Get with the times!!!

Alex on

Go give ur moralistic classes to whomever asks u for it not Holly not us . Mind ur own business and let people decide what they want to do with their life… Congrats to Holly 🙂

Heather on

I have a question 4 u….what exactly do u suggest 4 women who become pregnant??? Abortion (sin), adoption (which Holly was looking n2). U do not make any sense, there r too many children who need 2 b adopted, was she supposed 2 give up her child n then go adopt another??? And at any point it is said that u may ask God for forgiveness and he shall forgive. She could also b baptized. I am so glad that there r churches who r more open minded n willing 2 help unwed pregnant women. I thank the Lord that he believes children r miracles not bastards. Someone who judges is sinning because it is said that God is the only one who can judge. Who r u 2 judge?? I have a 14 year old daughter who goes 2 church every week since she was 5 and she is NOT a bastard. She is a miracle along with every child that is born. God has a plan for everyone and this is his plan for her. Maybe his plan was 2 give her a child because he knows she will b the best mother and may still end up adopting. You should be asking the Lord for forgiveness for the comments u have made.

Anonymous on

Perhaps you are not familiar with Luke 6:37… Which says in part, “Do not judge, and you will not be judged, do not condemn, and you will not be condemned… a true Christian knows that it is not our place to judge, God alone has that right. If God choose to bless them with a child before they are married then who are you to say it is wrong?

Emily on

Because we sinful Americans dont feel ANY child is a bastard.

CCE on

It’s a shame that while claiming your love to your God you’ve forgotten exactly what he calls you to do.

Do not be so pompous as to put your beliefs onto others. There is no solid proof that any god exists. You cannot claim so.

You are the very type of Christian that has so many turning away a d your numbers dropping rapidly. I can’t wait until you’re the minority (it will happen) and everyone else can demand that you follow their beliefs. It shall be awesome.


Mechelle on

Analyzer, you are a freak show! Lol! I know you aren’t really that much of a bible thumper! I’d rather my kids be done with college and married first but that’s just not 2012! It depends what religion you practice. And quite frankly, I think the right religion is whatever you believe. So freedom of religion!

Mere on

Good for her!!!! Best wishes Holly!

texaschickeee on

Two weeks ago she was going to adopt.

I really hope she gets un-shallow and materialistic for the kid.

Nicole on

Fantastic! If she has a girl, no doubt it will be another girlfriend for Hef!

Jen on

I’m happy for Holly. This is something that she has spoke out many times. That being said, when was the last time she was in a long term committed relationship?

I fear that Pasquale Rotella is a last ditch effort for her to have kids.

I dont want to be the one to say it, but how long is this relationship with Pasquale Rotella going to last?

nacho mamma on

She has always been upfront and honest about her desire to be a mom. Hope she has a healthy happy pregnancy and baby!

Not trying to pop the balloon but, I thought he was facing 13 years on 29 counts. Good luck!

He sure is facing 13 years in prison. Like Holly said, she is with the right man!

is this the same guy that’s facing 13 years of jail time?

Kate on

Dear Analyzer: I hope you help the homeless, hungry, poor, sick and weak with the same conviction! I hope when you go to the pearly gates that you can say you helped all that you could without judgement.

Congrats to Holly! She will make an excellent Mother since she is starting on the right foot: love!

ali on

Kate, that was the perfect nonjudgmental thing to say (especially if you are trying not to compromise your own Christianity by cursing at “analyzer”)!! So, thank you!!<3

Congratulations to the happy couple! I’m sure it’ll be a beautiful baby with every opportunity in life.

@analyser… yeah, God didn’t create me, my parents did. I don’t believe in God, when will people like you understand that not everyone does. I don’t worry about answering to a God that doesn’t exist in ny opinion. And marriage isn’t the be all and end all, it DOES NOT guarantee a stable family life. Have you never heard of divorce, which is so prominent in today’s society. So your point is invalid to someone like me.

Anonymous on

Analyzer: Where do you come off saying that people NEED to be married before having children. Yes, maybe 50 years ago that was the way to do things. We now live in a society where it is perfectly acceptable to have a child without being married. I have a two year old daughter and am not married to her father. We are engaged and have been together for 10+ years but are waiting for the right time to get married. My child is the most precious thing in the world and you should be ashamed of yourself for calling her and all other children born out of wedlock such nasty things. YOU obviously are unhappy with your life and YOU are the bastard!

bri on

Why does like every playboy bunny have wig hair? It’s when the hair is bleached all one color like a Barbie doll. It’s trashy and unnatural looking.

kikiandkyle on

While I don’t believe it’s morally wrong to have a child out of wedlock, I do think it’s kind of stupid and unfair to the child to have a baby with someone who you haven’t felt sure enough about to commit to in some legal way. I have plenty of friends who had boyfriends who ‘just didn’t believe in marriage’ etc, and they’re all single parents now, while the dads have wives and families that they actually did feel were worth the commitment. Congratulations to Holly and her boyfriend, and I hope that this one works out better than the others.

Lowry on

Hey, analyzer, do the words ‘pot’ and ‘kettle’ mean anything to you? If I remember correctly, we are to leave the judging up to God and not self-righteous know-it-alls such as yourself. Next time think before spewing your holier-than-thou “principles” on others.

BlueSkidoo on

I love that Americans are the ones credited with being “sinful” when other countries have things like men openly cheating on wives as an acceptable cultural tradition. Not to mention, by blatantly judging someone as “sinful,” you’ve just broken a Commandment and made yourself a huge hypocrite.

Anyway, congrats to Holly. I had a feeling she knew she was pregnant when she made that statement, which makes sense that she’d announce now, once her first trimester is under her belt and she’s in a safer zone. I wish her and her baby all the best!

really on

If you don’t believe in God at all then why do you acknowledge him by capitalizing the first letter of his name. When you do this you are indicating that you do believe he exist it is just that you don’t believe in him. Fyi.

Charleigh on

Your comment is ignorant. I don’t believe in God but I capitalize his name because proper grammar mandates it. The capitalization in no way, shape, or form means I believe. It means I understand basic grammar that says all proper names, such as God, is capitalized. If you disagree with that, you can take it up with my former English professors at NYU and Columbia.

ali on

Just FYI for anyone who cares, “God” is not his name any more than “mom” is the name of your mother. God is a title that can apply to anything, i.e., money, sex, or an ultimate being. Just to clarify!

Guidita from the Shore on

Nature coincides with a spiritual relationship 2 God, Mohammad, Allah etc. They don’t negate each other in truth or value. Believe or don’t believe. Just be a good mama Holly. Listen 2 the music in your heart.

Hi there, let me tell you something, i believe there is some higher power out there, which obviously you haven’t heard ,since you make the most tasteless,heartless comments.But you believe in a photo of a man that there is no actual proof of his existence,do you believe as well in spider man and superman…… Like i said no disrespect to all believer out there. but you got to stop being such a retard! and you are not analyzer, you are ANALyzer…….

Aww, she’s “waited so long for this.” Uh-huh. Spent all those years showing off her naked body to the world while sleeping with and then engaged to a man old enough to be her great-grandfather. Poor thing. Oh yeah, and her BF is a criminal. But what awesome role models this child’s parents will be.

Aww yay holly. I’m so happy for you to finally get your dream of motherhood. And to the religion a-hole I have 4 loving talented smart children all out of wedlock. My boyfriend and I have been together almost 9 years and its my choice to not get married. My god loves me and my children regardless if im married or not. Grow up and stop pushing ur personal screwed up judgments on people. If I ever heard you call my kids bastards face to face you would be missing your self righteous teeth…all I’m saying…but congrats holly!!!

Im happy for holly however seems like dude maybe going to jail for up to 13 years


nojudgement on

i never fully understand the purpose of all of these hateful comments. if you dont like someone, don’t waste your time writing mean things about them on a tabloid website. there’s enough judgement and hate in the world that we don’t need more and just because someone doesn’t have the same religious views or make the same decisions as others doesn’t make it right to rain on their parade. @ analyzer- you have the right to what you believe but as someone who was raised in a Christian family I was always taught never to pass judgement on others. I don’t feel it’s very “Christian-like” either to sit here pushing your personal religious views on others. Everyone has a right to believe what they want and the freedom to make their own decisions, using names like bastard child only creates animosity and is in my mind hateful speech. leave Holly be, she has a right to be happy about her news and embrace her pregnancy and all of the special experiences that follow.

Sharon on

@Analyzer: “Do not judge lest ye be judged.” And…it’s pretty funny that you are singling out “Americans” in your statement. What’s up with that? I don’t think I will have to worry about running into you at the pearly gates! I am curious what you think of the virgin Mary and how Jesus came to be.

Linda on

Now get rid of that awful hair color….

JJ on

I’m going to assume that analyzer also thinks you can’t get pregnant from ‘legitimate rape’…

just me. on

Maybe the holy roller should worry more about the priests who molest kids than Holly’s baby.

allierose on

Congratulations 🙂

I’m just curious, however, to know whether she’s going forward with the adoption process, because I sort of remember her mentioning it a while ago …

Christine on

I’ll never understand why people feel the need to comment negatively to a story such as this. Such judgemental behavior proves only one thing – that you are unhappy in your life. To feel the need to make comments about one’s desire to have children while unmarried and having to answer to God or even how “trashy” they look as both Analyzer and Bri have chosen to do, in my opinion proves only that they are unhappy people who just need to judge others to feel better about themselves. @Analyzer….Frankly, you disgust me. People like you should never voice your opinions about this subject. Your thoughts in todays society, are not accepted. People today simply don’t think like you and nobody needs to hear or see your twisted words and strange logic. I hope one day you can find peace within yourself and live a positive life.

As for Holly, being a mom is the best experience in the world and I wish her luck and health during her pregnancy. My husband and I recently welcomed our first child and I can’t imagine life without her.

Here’s hoping for a little less hate and judgement in the world!

Monteen on

To the bible thumping natzi what right do you think you have to judge anyone ? Your god even says it is a sin to judge people. Your god also says every sin is the same a sin is a sin so your so called sin is just as bad as her so called sin. I hate preachy bastards who dont know what they are talking about and want to spread the word their way. You have no clue! Your god says he loves all of his children then babies born out of so called wedlock are not bastards and will not be judged as such. Why dont you go back and read your bible and see what the word actually is and what it actually means before you try and tell anyone about it. Society needs to stop casting stones and work on their self because no one is perfect and no one has any right to judge the decisions anyone else makes in life. Take a look in the mirror!!!!!!

ali on

Bible-thumping-Nazi???? Wha??

nautinkotbkitty on

I think ur all ignorant. Analizer is too busy bringing down the wrath of god down on everyone to realize he’s being ignorant. Our gods must be different because the god I know loves people & forgives them for sins. Plus I don’t think god hates u if u have a baby out of wedlock. That’s just dumb. Second to the people congratulating her ur being kinda ignorant too. She has made money off gettin naked, and isn’t intelligent. I’m sorry but it’s the truth. If u wanna be happy someone has a baby let it be someone with intelligence who has brought something to this world. What has she contributed to society? Nothing. It’s like congradulating Snookie. Why? Do u really think that’s hot mess is gonna be a good mom? Hell no she isnt. Michelle Obama deserves a pat on the back for being a good parent, not this chick.

Proud Christian on

Analyzer may have come off a little harsh. However right is right. As a nation we no longer live by morals and ethics. Which is why our world is what it is now. There is a God and he is watching over us. We are all only on this earth for a very short time. Then some, not all will live a very rich life with our Lord. What we have on earth is nothing compared to what is waitng for us. I pray Holly has a very healthy child and I pray for their happyness. God bless her and be with her. God bless all of you even those who are foolish enough not to beleive in him and put him first in their lives. You will learn a very hard lesson.

Yay she’s having a baby with someone getting ready to go to prison! What a great smart woman she is! The world is going to crap because people like all of u adore and actually cheer people like this and Snooki on. Do u really think Snookies gonna be a good mom? Hell no she isn’t! I just hope that all of you teach ur girls to look up to good women who are actually talented because they wrote a good book or someone like Michelle Obama who seems to really raise her kids a lot better than this crap. Do u really want ur daughters growing up like Snooki or holly? I have 2 and I sure as hell don’t! but I have to bear in mind half of u also watch that dreadful honey boo boo garbage so I can’t say that I’m suprised. Yuck. Just yuck.

Unmarried mother of three on

Analyzer..um u said when will Americans..(blah blah) Are you Not American??? I’m assuming your not Christian..your talking trash so you must be of a trashy decent. The beauty of being American is freedom of choice. If youre married I feel sorry for your kids. Can you prove God exists? I’m Chumash and I know there is a creator. And I know freaks like you who tell me my heritage is a lie. But history Proves otherwise. You put all your energy in a book that says stone disobedient children (old testament) and Mary got pregnant without having sex. (Unmarried too rite??) If we are his mirror image, what does that make you? Him? You have hate in your blood. How dare you judge. You better get off the internet before your God finds out your gossiping and judging instead of Loving Gods CHILDREN! Loser? You’re the loser here. Get a life and an education. Oh wait, is that allowed of you in your cult?

JT on

Why can’t these people get married first? I mean, no one’s saying you HAVE to, but if you love the guy enough to CHOOSE to have a kid with him -meaning, it wasn’t an accident- then how come you don’t love him enough to marry him? Otherwise, just use a sperm donor and cut out the drama. Has she ever read anything about Halle Berry? Yeah, well, that’s about what she’ll have to look forward to in a few years. Congrats.

Yeah, good luck Holly. Googled the guy and he’s got at least 29 charges pending against him for money laundering and the like. Charming.

What I find interesting is if God created me, you, everyone then wouldnt that mean that he created her baby as well? And wouldnt that mean that if he didnt want children out of wedlock then he wouldnt have created those born out of wedlock? Last I checked my mom and dad created me, he had nothing to do with it, but if you are going to say that he did then he had something to do with this pregnancy as well.

And if he is the only one we have to answer to then it shouldnt matter to any of you how she chooses to live her life, because she doesnt have to answer to you. What do you care if she lives a “sinful” life?

Hey Analyzer..you prove yourself a hypocrite by reading an article (no one forced you to) and then take the time to start spitting off your religious fanaticism. You believe in God, how nice for you. Does God have a name for people such as yourself who are so strung out on the Kool Aid that it has rendered you illiterate and incapable of proper punctuation as well? When someone spews aggressive comments they want taken seriously, it helps to attempt to sound even remotely educated…”cos” otherwise, your point is lost entirely. Have fun praying to your imaginary friend.

My parents have.been happily unmarried for almost 30 years marriage is just a peice of paper most ppl get married for the ceremony not the actual marriage why do you think the divorce rate is so high i personally do want to get married more power to her for having a baby it doesnt matter if shes married or not its something she wants its her choice. Let her be happy ppl

To Proud Christian: You said it best. As for judging, we must take the plank out of our own eye before we judge your plank. I will not judge those that do not believe in God, instead I will pray for you. One thing that needs to be understood… We are ALL sinners that fall short EVERY DAY, but PRAISE GOD, he is a forgiving God, who loves us and wants us with him one day. For the non-believers, give him a try… if you don’t like him and his blessings, Satin will always take you back… and for the Christians on here… Remember what God’s Word says… If you want to spread the Gospel, plant the seed and let Him water it. LOve in Christ!

Of course dear.They keep saying I used harsh words.Well maybe the truth is always harsh especially to those who don’t want to be reminded that we cannot live so morally low,committing sins and still get away with it scot free.So yeah,the truth will always be harsh if you don’t want to be reminded of it.I did not make those rules or created any punishments,but rather a higher power.

NM on

It appears that freedom of expression on this page, is few and far between. You get judged if you are happy for her, and you get judged if you feel she’s in the wrong for having a child of out wedlock. FREE SPEECH people, that’s what the first amendement is about. If you don’t agree, ignore and move on, but the name calling here is CHILDISH and immature. If you don’t believe in God, that’s your right, but be an adult about it, and don’t put down people who do believe in God, because that majorly shows your ignorance in the matter! Grow up!

ummapotiskum@yahoo.com on

Seriously guys,the mention of GOD really does stir a lot of opinions from folks.As a believer in GOD I voiced my opinion here cos I felt the need to,iam not a holier than thou individual but rather I felt the need to remind people who always celebrate what clearly whether morally or religiously is logically wrong.Am not saying GOD is going to forsake the baby or Holly,but seriously at what point do people start accepting that there are sins indeed in this world.My beliefs says there are major/minor sins and I myself am of course a sinner,but doing a lot of them major sins am surely not guilty of.And an example of a minor sin is(telling a lie)and a major sin is (adultery,fornication,murder etc).So just because I pointed out something does not mean am free of sins myself cos no one in this life is,but we must try to not commit the major sins especially cos they pave a good way to hell for whoever chooses to commit them.That’s the point people.

NM – it’s not a matter of being uneducated, it’s a case of being educated, unbrainwashed and/or deprogrammed. God doesn’t create people; people create people. You believe in God because you want to believe in God, not because he’s real.

ali on

Let’s put it in a slightly nicer way: we beeline in God because we look around us, we read the Bible and we study what it means to us and through that we come to an understanding wherein we believe God exists. Those who don’t believe in God have a similar process but do not meet with the same outcome. Neither choice makes one more stupid or well informed just because the other chose it. Let’s be fair and kind to one anothers beliefs.<3

Congrats after a long time. You finally have what you have always hoped for.


Holly seems like a genuinely nice person and I wish her all the best!!!!!!

@analyzer — Having a child is a beautiful thing and yes … tradition dictates marriage first. You do, however, need to realize that times have changed. It’s your problem if you don’t want to accept it. You don’t have to agree with anyone’s lifestyle but I don’t like the hatred that comes out of your comment about filling the world with bastards because it brings negativity to children who deserve love, support, and bright futures. Do you know that many children suffer horrible upbringings with married parents and many children thrive in loving upbringings with unwed parents? Stop preaching and stop judging!!!! Get some love in your heart please. I’ll bet that when you look in the mirror, perfection does not look back at you. Please be kind.

Hea on

Congrats to Holly!

analyzer – You need help and medicine for you cannot be doing well. Paranoid schizophrenia is not something to take lightly and I fear you are far gone. Your God can’t help you but medicine can. I wish you all the best.

I am SO happy for Holly! She has wanted this for so long! Congratulations!!!!!!

Kimmie on

Analyzer, that was a pretty mean comment. I believe a loving relationship is just as good. It is perfectly fine to have a kid out of wedlock, but beware. I don’t get why folks are so hesitant about marriage, but not about having kids. Getting married is easy and if it doesn’t work, you can get out of it. But being a parent is hard and if this relationship goes south, it will be twice as hard. I have one son, a 30 year old and you can’t pay me enough money to have more kids.

mountainmiss on

Just in case some of the posters on here weren’t aware of the meaning – “Bastard” – A child whose birth lacks legal legitimacy—that is, one born to a woman and a man who are not legally married. Not a pretty word, but it is what it is.

Is he going to be able to help her raise the baby ? Since he is currently , quite possibly be going to jail ?
Electric Daisy Carnival creator and CEO of Insomniac Events Pasquale Rotella is facing up to 13 years in prison. As Spin reports (via Consequence of Sound), the promoter was accused last month of malfeasance. Now, court documents have revealed the full scope of federal charges against Rotella — and boy, are there a lot of them.

Will she be taking care of the baby alone ? Since he’s facing prison time of 13 years for money laundering ?

Wonderful news, but I think Holly is a little older. She celebrated her 32nd birthday during the first season of her reality show, which debuted in 2009. (Remember the catty remark someone made to her?)

nojudgement on

@ mountainmiss yes it’s a word however the context in which it was used was meant to be mean, malicious and judgmental. and to those of you preaching freedom of speech, yes everyone has freedom of speech however i choose to use mine for good instead of evil, I don’t sit online and make hateful comments to people i don’t know and maybe the world would be a better place if people would quit with the self-righteous entitled attitudes and learn to accept that everyone also has a right to live their lives the way they want. I wouldn’t make the same choices Holly has however that’s none of my business and not my place to call her names and make nasty personal comments when i’ve never met the woman. I hope that some of these people don’t have kids themselves because i would feel very sad for the hostile environments they must be growing up in.

Cinder Lou on

First to Charleigh: I am so sorry you experience such abuse at your so-called religious parents. No parents, religious or not, should treat a child that way. Bless your heart.

And to the poster who wrote this: “I have a two year old daughter and am not married to her father. We are engaged and have been together for 10+ years but are waiting for the right time to get married.” I have a question: how is it you found the “right time” to have a child, yet in 10+ years you haven’t found the “right time” to get married. Isn’t that putting the cart before the horse, and aren’t your priorities a bit out of whack?

Cali on

I googled her bf – he’s apparently having a bit of “legal trouble” and may go to prison? I couldn’t find anything that says it had been resolved. Sad.

KOL on

It is interesting to me that there are people on here who would relate murder with ‘fornication’. Are you crazy? People have the right to believe what they want. If you want to think that god is all powerful, fine whatever. What I have an issue with is those same people telling us who believe differently that we are wrong, you are right, god is real and we will pay, so on and so forth. If you want to think that, fine, but stop telling us, it will do you no good. Do you really think that by calling a baby names and telling us we are going to some kind of hell that we are going to want to listen to what you are saying? It is not even that times have changed, it is that we as women have earned the right to decide what we want to do with our lives, and our bodies. No one has the right to tell another what we can and can not do with our own lives and make our choices for us. We are adults, not children!

Big Fan on

Awesome to hear. She’ll be a super cool, fun mom. Congrats Holly!

I totally agree with analyzer 100%. God does not appreciate us sinning. And having children before we get married will not help anybody stay together. *By the way Russia and China are both communist countries and religion is not allowed Charleigh*

It’s a GOOD THING they were married before having the children they’re fighting over and didn’t bring “endless bastards” into the world!

Proud Christian on

WOW!! So much from one person having a baby. I feel I must speak out again. I am a very PROUD CHRISTAIN and do not try to hide it. So many are doing what is wrong and trying to justify it by not believing in GOD or saying times have changed. My God has not ever changed he is the same today, tomorrow as he was yesterday, a week ago or 100 years ago. As a Christian we have a responsibility to ourselves and GOD. There are so many people out there who claim to be Christian and are filled with such hate and anger and are so quick to judge in a very ugly manner. I have read my bible several times through and no where did I ready where God loved a righteous person more than a sinner. Actually there were several so called sinners whom Jesus loved a great deal. He loves us all equally. My God is a very loving one and in turn wants me to be loving as well. When we as a so called Christians act hateful, judgmental not loving, how can we expect to have anyone view us in positive manner. We are all sinners and must answer for those sins – to GOD. Please do not judge all Christians by the comments and views of someone who has such hate in their heart. A true Christian is truly about love and acceptance not hate and rejection.

Getting tired of these knocked-up unmarried celebrities. Makes it ok for teenagers to try this at home.

Getting tired of all these knocked-up, unmarried celebrities. Just encourages teenagers to do this at home. Seems odd to me that you can make a lifetime commitment to a child, but not a marriage. Something not right here for the mother & the child.

analyzer, can’t believe I’m responding to your obvious cry for attention, but if we are all made from God then isn’t Holly’s baby a gift from him? He must not think her sins are too bad if he gave her a baby, just saying:)

I’m happy for her, from what I remember of her shows she has wanted this for a long time, congrats!

I’m happy for her, but I just googled him due to all this talk about him serving time. He’s bad news. He embezzled money and has done other illegal stuff. Sad. I wonder if Holly knows about any of this. She seems like a smart woman. She’ll probably raise this baby on her own which is terrific for her. I don’t think this guy will have any money to help her out with though.

Sterling on

Congratulations Holly! Too bad you didn’t give this lil a better father to look up too…Looks like he may possibly be facing 13 years for “oooogles” of crimes from what http://www.bittenandbound.com/2012/08/29/holly-madison-pregnant-pasquale-rotella-is-baby-daddy/ has shared …

However, a blessing is a blessing and a BABY is a miracle. Enjoy. ;o)

I know a lot of people believe in a God and in sin. I and many with me do not. Why can’t you people leave us be and respect us the way you want to be accepted and respected for your beliefs? Why do you feel the need to condemn and threaten us simply because we’re not like you? How is that a good christian thing of you to do? There is no God and there is no sin in my life. There’s only good and bad, right and wrong. Nobody can tell me to be scared of something I don’t believe in. It’s just deeply annoying and a bit disturbing.

fatimaaninna on

So happy for her! Motherhood is the biggest blessing EVER!

Jill on

She is like a little lost girl and I really feel sorry for her. She is so desperate because she does not have any self-esteem, and she couldn’t make an informed decision if her life depended on it. The problem now is that a defenseless child is involved. I wish she would have received mental help before getting pregnant. She’s gone from a geriatric boyfriend to a criminal and that says a lot about how she really feels about herself. She has no idea who she is, and she tries so hard to define herself through men…now a child. A baby is not an accessory, a doll or a way to stay relevant in the press. That poor baby…it makes me sad to think he/she is going to be born into this mess.

Jane on

To the ones saying that “god’s rules don’t change, does that include ALL of them, or just the ones that are convenient

– I Corinthians 11:6:
So if a woman does not cover her head, she should cut off her hair. If it is a disgrace for a woman to cut off her hair or shave her head, let her cover her own head. ISV
Women are not allowed to speak in Church, but women have gone as far as becoming pastors today, Why? The Bible clearly states that:

– I Corinthians 14:34-35:
Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

When Christmas comes around, many Christians all over the world set up Christmas trees in their houses when it clearly states that they shouldn’t in the following verse:

– Jerimiah 10:2-5:
Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

So if anybody has a very sensible and reasonable explanation as to why these rules are ignored today, I’d be glad to hear it. And please no “Those are barbaric rules of the old” crap please, ity clearly says that the rules will never change in the Bible.

PS My bastard children and their “baby daddy” are very happy for Holly

Marriage is not paper – it’s the biggest commitment you can make to the person you’re with. Anybody can have kids together……marriage is a symbol of long term commitment for a lifetime. Including kids. Obviously if you’re having kids with somebody and you don’t want to marry them…..there’ s some deep rooted issue there.

Im an unmarried mother to be.
I am also a catholic & go to church every single week.
Being unmarried seems to almost be the norm these days. Yes, I understand that people have their own beliefs and opinions on what is right or wrong but truth be told, every baby is a blessing. Married or not. How can you be so quick to judge? Just because people are unmarried doesn’t mean that they will love their child any less or be worse parents.
I am Catholic, go to church each week, and I don’t believe you need to be married. Child or not. I’m an adult and can make my own decisions. I don’t need a piece of paper to prove my love to my partner.
And the example I’ll give to my child is that you can make your own decisions and don’t need to conform to society.

analyzer, you sipped an extra cup of crazy today didn’t you?

telling me to believe in god is like telling me to believe in santa clause (except that santa clause actually sounds like a guy i would want to believe in, god sounds like a judgemental bastard).

Great post made here. One thing I would like to say is always that most professional areas consider the Bachelors Degree like thejust like the entry level requirement for an online college degree. While Associate Diplomas are a great way to get started, completing your current Bachelors starts up many good opportunities to various employment opportunities, there are numerous online Bachelor Diploma Programs available through institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions offer you Online editions of their college diplomas but usually for a significantly higher charge than the firms that specialize in online qualification plans.

Good for her! She has longed to be a Mom and her time has come. I wish her the best.

There is another article on People about his potentially impending jail time. Several people actually suggested she didn’t know what she was getting into with him! For those of you who think she didn’t know about these charges, get real. It was public knowledge before the pregnancy. I think she wanted a baby and it may be a “bonus” to her that he might not be around to get in the way. Everything she’s publicly done has been all “me, me, me” and if she has a baby then she will be the center of attention with or without him. It really seems that she doesn’t care. She will get child support, married or not, and there is a good chance he could buy his way out of jail time. Either way, again, it really doesn’t seem that she cares one way or the other…it seems to be all about her. It’s just not a good situation to bring a defenseless baby into.

Julianna on

So happy for Holly! She’s going to be an amazing mother for sure!

Horsegirl on

Being married is more then a piece a paper. There is actual legal ramifications to it. So I wish people would just stop calling it “JUST” a piece a paper. It would be nice if more celeberties would recognize the importance of marriage then the baby… But if it does’t happen that way it doesn’t make the baby any less special. In this case I think Holly could have choose a little better. The baby probably won’t get alot of daddy time at first. But again marriage is way more then a piece of paper.

All of these crazy and negative comments are hilarious! There are a few people on here that need to get their act together. IF Holly being pregnant bothers you so much (as to call her names and pass judgment) then look the other way! Who cares if she is a celeb or not. Keep ur non sense to yourself. People will always have children out of wedlock, people will always get married-if they want to, people will always adopt, people will always have to open their big mouths about other peoples lives. Let people be who they want. Get over yourselves.
