In Touch magazine published the first photograph of Holly Madison with her baby daughter Rainbow Aurora Rotella this morning. The magazine reported that it was just seven days after Holly gave birth to her first baby.

The former “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood and “The Girls Next Door” star and Playboy Playmate opened her home in Las Vegas to In Touch for an exclusive interview and photo shoot.

“Just holding her is so much fun,” Holly gushes in the new issue on newsstands now. “Even the delivery was easy -- I was actually laughing as I was pushing!”

The 33-year-old star delivered her 7-pound, 2-ounce daughter, whose father is boyfriend Pasquale Rotella, on March 5. “I had an epidural, so it was fun. She made it easy on me.” Well wishes from her Las Vegas friends poured in shortly after the birth.

Holly tells In Touch that Rainbow’s unusual moniker comes from a former schoolmate. “I was always envious of her name!” explains the new mom, who ignores the jabs, including those who have sniped that it sounds stripper-esque. “If getting teased about her name is the worst thing that’s going to happen to her,” says Holly, “bring it on.”

The magazine reports that for now, Pasquale and the star are blissfully enjoying everything about parenthood -- sleepless nights and all. “Like all babies, she has her moments. But I’m so in awe of her that I even think her screams are cute!”

Holly says she’s already making plans to expand her brood. “We want Rainbow to have lots of brothers and sisters. I’d love to have six!” she told In Touch.

For all the exclusive photos of Rainbow, plus, details about Holly’s delivery, weight-loss plan and new life as a mom, pick up the new issue of In Touch on newsstands now.
