Is Holly Madison facing a stormy reaction to naming her newborn baby girl Rainbow?
However, the 33-year-old Girls Next Door star — who gave birth this week to her first child — is defending her colorful name choice on her Celebuzz blog.
"There are a lot of smug haters out there who bag on my choice of a name, but I don’t care about what they think," Holly explains. "I want my daughter to be proud of who she is and learn to speak up and stand up for herself at a young age."
"I spent most of my life being a people-pleaser who worried about what other people thought or thought was cool, and I don’t want that for her," she adds.
Meanwhile, Holly explains that she actually likes Rainbow as a name.
"I have always loved the name Rainbow," she says. "There was a girl in my school a few years younger than me named Rainbow, and I was so envious of her name because it was so pretty and unusual."
"She was a perfectly normal, well-adjusted, sporty girl, by the way, so I’m not worried about my daughter being 'traumatized' by having an unusual name," Holly continues.
All in all, Holly couldn't be more thrilled about her daughter with boyfriend Pasquale Rotella.
"I couldn’t be more blessed to have such a perfect daughter and have never been happier than I am now!" Holly says. "I got my nails done Rainbow colors to celebrate my new daughter’s name!"
So the name Rainbow may not be right for everyone, but we think it's cute how much Holly adores it.
Best of luck to the happy — and color-loving — family.
