Holly Madison, the blonde burlesque performer who worked at Playboy and on reality TV before starring in a Las Vegas Strip show, says she'll be adding a new title to the resume - mum.
The 33-year-old star of Peepshow told Us Weekly she's 12 weeks into her pregnancy.
We're in love and counting down the days until we meet our beautiful baby
"I've always wanted to be a mom," she said. "But I thought it would take longer!"
Her boyfriend of nine months, Pasquale Rotella, also issued an enthusiastic statement.
"We're in love and counting down the days until we meet our beautiful baby. I can hardly believe how lucky I am," he said.
Holly is currently appearing in Peepshow, a Las Vegas stage production, but says the pregnancy hasn't affected her too much so far.
"I've been lucky! No morning sickness, but I do get a little nauseous," she said. "It happens before my show, so I keep ginger ale backstage."
Madison previously worked at Playboy and dated the magazine's creator, Hugh Hefner. Throughout her relationship, and during her stint on reality show The Girls Next Door, she was open about wanting a family of her own - and of wanting to marry Hefner, who went to propose to a another woman after Madison ended their six-year relationship in 2008.
