Holly Madison is officially a mom next door, having given birth to a baby girl on Tuesday.

Madison, one of Hugh Hefner’s former girlfriends who rose to fame on the E! reality series “The Girls Next Door,” welcomed the baby girl with current beau Pasquale Rotella, In Touch reported.

“Pasquale and I welcomed our first child, a baby girl!” Madison told the mag. “We haven’t yet decided on a name for her but we couldn’t be any more overjoyed than at this moment.”

She was born at 11:59 a.m. in Las Vegas and weighed in at 7 pounds, 2 ounces, Us Weekly reported, and she’ll be going home to Madison’s newly finished Alice in Wonderland-themed nursery.

“I’ve never been more in love than I am today as, after months of waiting, I finally was able to hold my daughter for the first time,” Pasquale told In Touch. “Holly and I are looking forward to spending some quiet time with our baby and enjoying our new family. I’m truly the luckiest man in the world.”

Over the weekend, the “Peepshow” star told the Las Vegas Sun that it was time to have the baby.

“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,” she said.

Madison, 33, and Rotella, 38, a party promoter and founder of the Electric Daisy Carnival rave, announced the pregnancy in August on Twitter.

“My better half and I really appreciate all the love and congratulations! Thank you!” Rotella tweeted. “We can’t wait to meet our beautiful baby.”

The couple plans to get married over the summer, the Sun said.
