“I’ve always wanted to be a mom. But I thought it would take longer!” she tells US Weekly.

The 33-year-old burlesque performer is 12 weeks along and says she’s been lucky — “No morning sickness, but I do get a little nauseous. It happens before my show, so I keep ginger ale backstage.”

Madison is currently starring in “Peepshow,” a burlesque show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas that has formerly been headlined by Kelly Monaco, Melanie Brown (a.k.a. Scary Spice) and Aubrey O’Day.

Rotella, a party promoter (or as his Facebook profile says, “experience creator”), has been dating Madison for nine months.

Do you suppose former “Girls Next Door” co-stars Kendra Wilkinson and Bridget Marquardt are planning a bunny-themed baby shower?
