Holly Madison: I Want More Kids – ‘Hopefully Soon’

Holly Madison wants more kids

In her upcoming memoir Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a former Playboy Bunny, Holly Madison recalls what it was like living as one of Hugh Hefner‘s girlfriends — and why her time spent in the mansion ultimately led her to contemplating suicide.

With her darkest days behind her, Madison, 35, is happily married to husband Pasquale Rotella and she tells PEOPLE exclusively that their 2-year-old daughter, Rainbow Aurora, won’t be their last.

The former Playboy bunny hopes to expand her family “hopefully soon,” she tells PEOPLE, though her busy schedule keeps her fairly well occupied for the time being as she tours to promote Down the Rabbit Hole, out June 29.

She adds, “Hopefully after the book tour.”

Madison “loves” being a mom, she says, because “Rainbow is awesome. I got off easy with her. She’s a really good kid.”

She knows that she might not get as lucky with the next child, however, because “that’s what everyone is saying! Other people hate that she’s so good.”

Sounds like jealousy to us!

I’ve always liked her. She seems very down to earth. I believe what she says about Hugh. What other secrets are we going to find out? He is close friends with Bill Cosby. Continued success to Holly and her family.

Maybe she’ll name the next one Rainy Clouds. Poor kid being saddled with that idiotic name.

Good on her. And double good on her to have the courage to expose the grossness that is Hef’s mansion. For a man who is so obviously interested only in the superficial, he sure doesn’t spend much time looking in a mirror. If he did, he would realize that surrounding himself with such young women only draws attention to and accentuates how wrinkly, jowly, old and decrepit looking he is. It always looks like he’s with he’s on a day trip from his nursing home with hired nurses.

Hopefully if she has another child, she will come up with a better name. Rainbow Aurora? That poor kid. Ridiculous.

Beautiful little girl! I hope they call her Rain.
Holly is cashing in on Hef lol

Always loved Holly! Her daughter is so beautiful and hardly wait to buy her new book!

Some reality. Madison targeted Hefner from the beginning. She sought HIM out in order to obtain the glamorous lifestyle she sought. She did everything she possibly could to get him to marry her and when he wouldn’t only then did she leave.
She traded her time for fame, publicity and a current net worth of $6 million. And now she is hawking a book. She has and continues to cash in.

I wonder how shell feel or like it when her children discover or read about her “relationship” with the Hef, the drug use and orgies….I hope shes prepared to deal with her own daughter’s behaviors….

love aurora

I don’t think that any of those women should kiss and tell . They were all willing participants, Or wait till the old man is dead. I guess he cut the money train so she has to make it some how. Also there is nothing wrong with her daughters name. My granddaughter is Aurora and well Rainbow isn’t the worst name. I went to school with a girl name Misty Dawn Meadows. (sorry if you read this, misty)

Right what happened to her husband’s legal troubles? He was or is facing jail time.

Tiffany on

I think her daughter is just beautiful. Hope she has another one.

Old age happens to everyone and it’s not a sin and you can still want sex when you’re old and it’s not evil.

Ellie on

Hef took her off the street when she was homeless. She repays him with this sordid expose. Shame on her.

Marie on

I love Holly, Kendra and Bridgette and I’m disappointed in Holly for writing the tell all. At any time she could have packed her bags and left the mansion, but she chose to stay, and for that reason, I think it’s wrong to write a tell all. Holly would not have a career without Hef. If she had a problem with what was going on at the mansion, she should have let Hef know because communication is the key to a happy relationship.

Love her! She is so beautiful and so is her little girl! I would read her book. I’ll bet it is an honest and interesting memoir.

Motherhood clearly agrees with her. She looks healthy and happy.
