Former The Girls Next Door star Holly Madison’s daughter Rainbow Aurora Rotella is officially her (absolutely adorable) little mini-me.
The colorfully-named Rainbow, who is three, appeared alongside Madison and her little brother Forest, four months, for a family photoshoot in Las Vegas. (Dad Paquale Rotella didn’t join in on the fun, but he was obviously sorely missed.) And while Madison’s Hogwarts-approved apparel (a Ravenclaw, who knew?!) and little Forest’s adorable checkered pants should be stealing the show, it’s how much little Rainbow looks like her mama’s doppelgänger that has our heads spinning.
From the light brunette hair to the adorably full cheeks to the toothy smile, there is no doubt that Rainbow is basically Holly from 25-ish years ago — y’know, before the blonde hair dye became a thing. (Seriously, take a look at this photo of young Holly growing up in Oregon. They are twins.) Here are some more pics of Rainbow for comparison:
However, don’t necessarily expect Rainbow to follow Madison’s career path just because they look so much alike. As Madison — whose book The Vegas Diaries: Romance, Rolling the Dice, and the Road to Reinvention came out last spring — told People she wants Rainbow to explore who she is outside of her (sure to be gorgeous) appearance.
“I want Rainbow to learn to be verbal and stand up for herself,” she said. “If I could go back, I’d be a lot more outspoken. I wouldn’t have allowed myself to be made to feel less than.”
She also said that she would never want Rainbow to pose for Playboy — which is understandable, given that Madison’s relationship with Hugh Hefner is notoriously not so great.
“I want her to be confident and realize that there are ways to feel beautiful without exploiting yourself or putting yourself out there in a way you might regret,” Madison concluded. “I want her to have respect for herself.”
