As a former Las Vegas performer and reality show star, Holly Madison certainly has the experience of looking picture perfect. But when it comes to her post-baby body, she’s not under any pressure to bounce back too soon.

“I’m going to get healthy, but I’m not going to focus on how fast I’m losing weight,” Madison, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue. “I don’t have a time limit.”

The former Girls Next Door star and bestselling author, who welcomed her second child, a boy named Forest Leonardo Antonio on Aug. 7, says she gained 60 pounds while pregnant.

“I was eating junk food and ordering a lot of Postmates,” Madison admits. “I spent more on Postmates than I did on groceries!”

Comfort food, indeed. “I was vaguely nauseous and the thought of greens grossed me out,” says Madison. “I was a Shakey’s Pizza regular!”

No one can call her an underachiever!

In fact, the day that Jillian Harris gave birth to son Leo George, her first child with boyfriend Justin Pasutto, the blogger and host of HGTV’s Love It or List It Too in Vancouver worked a full 14 hours.

“My pregnancy and delivery was not the most glamorous,” Harris reveals to PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “I worked on set, came home, went for a swim and then my water broke!”

Harris’ whole film crew, as well as friends and family — nearly 13 people — were in the delivery room. “It was not at all how I envisioned it, but it was such a hoot,” she admits.

Within two days of welcoming little Leo, now 6 weeks old, the former Bachelorette star says she was “working again.”

Holly Madison is opening up about the birth of her son, Forest Leonardo Antonio, and the “stressful” days that ensued after he was admitted into the neonatal intensive care unit.

Moments after Madison, 36, gave birth to her second child on Aug. 7, the newborn baby was swiftly taken to the NICU where he was hooked up to “a million machines.”

In a PEOPLE exclusive interview, the former Girls Next Door star recalls that medical staff “took him away to get the fluid out of his lungs. First it was the fluid, then it was jaundice, then his eyes weren’t dilating, and I spent hours thinking my baby couldn’t see.”

No one ever said having a newborn was easy. And for Jillian Harris, the first few weeks of her son Leo George Tiziano‘s life were particularly emotional.

“I was crying every day the first week,” Harris, 36, tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The former Bachelorette star gave birth to Leo, her first child with boyfriend Justin Pasutto, on Aug. 5. “I was trying to give everybody all my love and I felt like it wasn’t possible,” she says.

The blogger and host of HGTV’s Love It or List It, Too in Vancouver decided to try placenta pills, a process in which the placenta is encapsulated into pills and believed to potentially impart health benefits.

“I have nothing to compare it to, but I’ve had so much energy,” says Harris of the effects of the pills. “I haven’t had any major breakdowns and I’ve been feeling really good.”
