The stork is due any moment for Holly Madison and the arrival of her first baby daughter. The reality TV star told me exclusively early today that she’ll check into a Las Vegas maternity hospital on Monday.
Holly said: “It’s time now. We have decided to induce the delivery if necessary. I will go in Monday afternoon or early evening. It still might take up to three more days, though.”
The former star of “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood and “The Girls Next Door” and “Holly’s World” on E! Entertainment confirmed to me that boyfriend and baby daddy Pasquale Rotella, head honcho of Insomniac, which oversees the Electric Daisy Carnival, will be at her bedside.
“He’s as excited about it as I am -- maybe more!” she chuckled. The couple plans to wed this summer. It was a busy weekend for mom-to-be Holly, as she also attended the Discovery Children’s Museum grand opening at The Smith Center on Friday with friend and former “Peepshow” cast mate Josh Strickland.
Holly was in a bulging, one-shoulder aqua dress over solid stockings at the premiere of “CeeLo Green Is Loberace” in her former Chi Theater this early morning just after midnight. She also walked the show’s red carpet with sparkling high heels to match her earrings and wrist jewelry.
“You’ll know when the baby is born, but I’m not going to be tweeting during the delivery,” she laughed. The due date is Tuesday.
After the baby has arrived, Holly has an “Alice in Wonderland”-themed nursery awaiting her girl that she hand-painted. She even painted talking flowers on the walls. “I finished it just in time to go into the hospital,” she said.
Holly also told me that she has one more night out on the town before the birth. “I’m going to see my girlfriend Claire Sinclair’s new ‘Pin Up’ show at The Stratosphere tonight,” she said. “I’m filming a new television special, and my visit to her show just before the hospital trip will be part of it.”
The special will broadcast on the E! Entertainment, although Holly wouldn’t confirm that or when it would air this summer. She did hint, however, that photos of the newborn baby will appear as a magazine exclusive.
“We have her name picked out, but that has to remain a secret for now,” she told me. “It’s such an unusual and difficult name I have a feeling we’ll add something simpler once she’s arrived safely in our world.”
Last week, the former Playboy cover girl and centerfold made headlines with her decision to have the baby’s placenta made into vitamin tablets that she will eat after the birth.
“I’m totally planning on having my placenta turned into pills I can take after giving birth. I heard it helps women recover faster, and I want to recover as quickly as I can,” she said.
A radiant Holly with blushing cheeks summed up: “I’m feeling very relaxed, very, very happy, contented, yet a little restless with anticipation, but all is good. I’m ready now for the delivery. I can’t wait to be a mommy, although I’m not giving up my career.
“Everything is wonderful. These are the happiest days of my life.”

Catering to the young and modern crowd, Planet Hollywood is a one-stop shop for entertainment with its massive shopping mall, slew of restaurants, spacious casino and clubs.
The ambiance of the casino is retro-chic meets high-tech with black granite floors throughout and colorful LED lights throughout the space. The theme carries into the 100,000 square-foot casino with 250 flat screens topping off slot machines. The casino is also home to 87 tables, a sports book and a poker room.
There's also the Miracle Mile Shops, one Vegas' largest malls, with 140 stores including BCBG Max Azaria, bebe, Urban Outfitters and The Discovery Channel Store.
Following an afternoon of shopping, guests can satisfy their appetites at one of the gourmet restaurants in Planet Hollywood, like the non-traditional approach to steakhouses at Strip House or check out the exotic Far East motif at KOI restaurant and lounge. And if guests are still looking for more, they can spend the after hours at Privé, Triq or Krave nightclubs.
Perhaps one of the resorts biggest attractions came in March with the addition of "Peepshow." The naughty twist on the story of Little Bo Peep is modern-day spin on the run-of-the-mill Vegas topless review. The "Peepshow" stage has seen visiting celebs like Scary Spice Mel B, "Dancing with the Stars" Kelly Monaco and Playboy's Holly Madison.
