Former Playboy playmate Holly Madison and her concert promoter husband, Pasquale Rotella, have welcomed a second baby, a son, they announced late Monday.

“[Y]esterday Holly, Rainbow & I welcomed a healthy 8-pound, 14-ounce baby boy to the family,” the new dad wrote on Instagram, including a picture of a tiny newborn hand on his own. “Now I'm holding my beautiful son at the hospital reading amazing birthday wishes from all of you.”

Similarly, the former “Girls Next Door” and “Holly’s World” star — who’s also a two-time bestselling author — shared a photo of her infant son’s right hand clutching one of her glittery-blue-tipped fingers. A week ago, she’d been soliciting opinions on which cute blue onesie she should bring her son home in.

The couple, who were married at Disneyland in September 2013, when daughter Rainbow Aurora was 6 months old, is currently celebrating more than the birth of a new baby. 

After being indicted in 2012 on six felony counts of bribery, embezzlement and conspiracy related to raves held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and L.A. Sports Arena, Rotella pleaded no contest Thursday to a single misdemeanor conflict-of-interest charge and walked away with three years’ probation and a $150,000 fine — and no jail time.

(Happily for the concert promoter, after it was determined that evidence had been mishandled, the judge chided county prosecutors for “just tripping over your feet and falling on your faces.”)

“What an incredible week,” Rotella wrote on Instagram. “A crazy, stressful start, which transformed into this magical moment.”
