Holly Madison has given birth to a boy.

The 36-year-old 'The Girls Next Door' star has given birth to her and her husband Pasquale Rotella's second child, which was announced via social media on Tuesday (09.08.16), although the name of their child has yet to be announced.

The father of two - who also has three-year-old daughter Rainbow Aurora - posted a picture of his hand up against his newborn sons, with the caption: ''What an incredible week. A crazy, stressful start, which transformed into this magical moment. First, a five-year-long indictment against me was finally dismissed; then yesterday Holly, Rainbow & I welcomed a healthy 8-pound, 14-ounce baby boy to the family. Now I'm holding my beautiful son at the hospital reading amazing birthday wishes from all of you. Definitely one of the most memorable weeks of my life! Lots of love to everyone who took the time to post, tag or send me a message online. I'm grateful & touched! We'll be heading home from the hospital later & I'll be posting photos of the new baby soon. Thanks 'n love you ALL! (sic).''

And the blonde beauty shared a similar post to her Instagram account, which sees her holding her baby's hand, alongside three heart emojis.

The television personality - who married Pasquale in 2013, five years after she dated Hugh Hefner for seven years in 2001 - announced she was expanding her brood and expecting her second child in January this year, and two months later declared the sex of their child.

Meanwhile, during Holly's pregnancy she wrote a baby blog for E! where she detailed her cravings and dislikes whilst she was expecting, which included her dislike towards breastfeeding in public.

The former Playboy Bunny previously wrote: ''I discovered early on that breastfeeding in public is not for me.

''I am completely supportive of others doing it, but I tried it once and it was altogether too awkward for me to try again.''
