Alec and Hilaria Baldwin Have a Blast Dressing Up Their Kids in Astronaut Costumes for Halloween

The Baldwin family Halloween was out of this world!

To celebrate the spooky holiday on Wednesday, Alec Baldwin, 60, and his wife Hilaria, 34, dressed their family up in adorable matching astronaut costumes and shared the photos to Instagram.

Wearing orange jumpsuits, Alec and Hilaria — along with their children Romeo Alejandro David, 5 months, Leonardo Ángel Charles, 2, Rafael Thomas, 3, and Carmen Gabriela, 5 — took the sweet family photo before heading out to the streets of New York for some trick-or-treating.

Alec and Rafael even had their own space helmets to wear with the costumes, which the three-year-old proudly showed off in the photos. “Ppahy WeenyHallow…” Alec wrote on his Instagram account alongside the precious family image.

He later shared a photo of the couple’s three eldest children sitting on a stoop outside. “All systems are go for Operation Candy here in New York City…” he captioned the sibling shot.

Hilaria also joined in on the fun, posting a video of the family heading down the New York City sidewalk, hand-in-hand.

As the Baldwins walk in slow-motion, Richard Strauss’ “Also Sprach Zarathustra Op. 30” — made famous as the theme song from 2001: A Space Odyssey —  is heard in the background.

“Happy Halloween…love, us…blast off 🚀” she captioned the silly video.

The Baldwin clan are no strangers to taking adorable family photos.

Earlier this month, the parents brought their three oldest children along with them to the Chairman’s Reception at the Hamptons International Film Festival in East Hampton, New York where they stole the show on the red carpet.

The family kept it casual wearing jeans and long-sleeved shirts but looked happy-as-ever as Alec and Hilaria held their three kids tight.

And most recently, the proud parents posed for the latest cover of HOLA! USA with their four kids, where they opened up about how Spanish is “fundamental” in their household.

“Our kids, especially the older ones, who speak more, are fully bilingual,” Alec told the publication. “My wife speaks Spanish in the house and Carmen is in a school which is a full language immersion.”

“We make the utmost effort. This is a priority for my wife — Spanish is fundamental,” he continued.

In addition to passing down the language, Hilaria also explained that many of her and Alec’s traits have rubbed off on their children.

“We’re both very dramatic; we’re very strong-willed; we’re kind of loud. I think that our kids, especially Carmen, are very much like us,” she revealed.

“With my husband, she likes to sit down and watch something. She has the capacity to be able to sit down and complete something — where I’ll do it if I have to, but I don’t want to,” Hilaria explained.

“Alec is very good at that,” she continued. “Our boys are climbing on everything — I feel that’s very me.”

Alec and Hilaria Baldwin are dedicated to passing both of their respective native languages on to their children.

The proud parents posed for the latest cover of HOLA! USA with their four kids — sons Romeo Alejandro David, 5 months, Leonardo Ángel Charles, 2, and Rafael Thomas, 3, plus daughter Carmen Gabriela, 5 — where they opened up about how Spanish is “fundamental” in their household.

“Our kids, especially the older ones, who speak more, are fully bilingual,” Alec, 60, told the publication. “My wife speaks Spanish in the house and Carmen is in a school which is a full language immersion.”

“The concern and the passion that my wife has — and me too — for two languages is essential,” explained the former 30 Rock star, who’s also dad to 23-year-old daughter Ireland.

“We make the utmost effort. This is a priority for my wife — Spanish is fundamental.”

Hilaria, a 34-year-old yoga instructor and all-around fitness guru, told HOLA! USA that she and Alec “are very, very different” but also “similar in some ways” personality wise — traits their kids have inherited.

“We’re both very dramatic; we’re very strong-willed; we’re kind of loud. I think that our kids, especially Carmen, are very much like us,” she revealed.

“With my husband, she likes to sit down and watch something. She has the capacity to be able to sit down and complete something — where I’ll do it if I have to, but I don’t want to,” Hilaria explained.

“Alec is very good at that. Our boys are climbing on everything — I feel that’s very me.”

As one can imagine, the Baldwins’ household is a happy — and very hectic — place. But the couple have found a routine that works for them.

“By 6 a.m. everybody’s up, and it’s hectic,” Hilaria said. “I’m in the bathtub with the kids, trying to get everybody ready. … Carmen is off to kindergarten, Rafa is going to preschool and I’m with Leo and Romeo. I also work on a podcast.”

The Baldwins’ issue of HOLA! USA is currently available to subscribers, and will be on newsstands Friday.

Dem Dumplings! Mariah Carey’s Twins Have the Cutest Reactions While Cooking with Mom in Taipei

Mariah Carey may be busy performing all around the world, but she always has time to learn new things with her twins Monroe and Moroccan Scott.

The mother of two treated her son and daughter, both 7, to a cooking class on Wednesday at The Regent Hotel in Taipei, Taiwan, where Carey performed a concert as part of her Southeast Asia tour.

“Making dumplings in Taipei!” the proud parent captioned a series of photos and videos on Instagram and Facebook.

“It’s very intricate work here,” Carey said in one video before Monroe adorably attempted to repeat her mom’s words, remarking, “It’s very interesting.”

“We’re learning about different cultures,” the singer explained.

And after they completed their dish, Carey surprised her kids with their finished products. “Wow! We made that?” one of the twins said after Carey showed them their steamed dessert dumpling. “This is ours? No way!”

“Yes, you made this!” Carey — who shares her children with ex-husband Nick Cannon — replied lovingly.

Moroccan and Monroe have grown up touring with their famous mom, even joining her on stage from time to time. “Every time I get a minute off, we go somewhere and try to do something fun,” Carey told PEOPLE in August about activities with her children.

“They love each other and are best friends, but they’ll do things without each other. For the most part they’re with each other all the time. I just hope they maintain that for the rest of their lives. There’s nothing like the bond that they share,” she said, adding, “They light up my life and are amazing.”

Not only is she touring, but Carey continues to release new music ahead of the debut of Caution, her first album since 2014’s Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse.

On Thursday, the elusive chanteuse premiered her new single “The Distance,” the third song off Caution after previously released tracks “GTFO” and “With You.”

In addition, Carey will be returning to Las Vegas in February for her new residency, The Butterfly Returns.

Caution, scheduled for a Nov. 16 release, is available for pre-order on amazon.com.

Why Khloé Kardashian Picked Kim to Be True’s Godparent: ‘She’s So Secure in Her Life’

Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians was all about the family’s baby boom.

With Khloé Kardashian preparing to welcome her first child, baby True, with Tristan Thompson, she was tasked with selecting her daughter’s legal guardian.

“I am a huge planner, I love to be prepared,” she explained. “That’s just how I am. I always thought Kourtney would be the godparent of my child, but lately I’ve been watching Kimberly and she’s been someone that I really gravitate to as a mom. So it’s a tough choice between Kourtney and Kim.”

Kourtney stopped by Khloé’s house to ask whether she’d given the matter some thought.

“Um, I mean, I don’t know,” responded Khloé, 34. “What I was told is that I can’t set that up until I have a birth certificate.”

“You have to think who has the best values of what you want your kids to be around and see and experience,” said Kourtney, 39, who shares sons Mason, 8, Reign, 3, and daughter Penelope, 6, with ex Scott Disick,

Later, Kourtney revealed she had assumed it would be her.

“I don’t know why this even something Khloé has to think about,” she said. “My passion is my kids and my family and we’re always doing fun things and traveling. The kids have a sense of freedom but we also have boundaries, so I’m obviously the best choice.”

But Khloé admitted she had been feeling especially connected with Kim, 37, who shares daughters North, 5, Chicago, 7 months, and son Saint, 2, with husband Kanye West. (At the time, she was still expecting Chicago via surrogacy.)

“I feel like Kim has been so selfless during my pregnancy,” said Khloé. “She’s trying to just help make sure that you feel your best, look your best, have the best. She’s so secure in her life that I feel like she would be an incredible godparent. She’s just been a great friend and sister.”

Seeking advice from momager Kris Jenner, Khloé asked her how she went about choosing her own kids’ legal guardians.

“I think when Kendall was born, I thought about who I felt the closest to and who I would love the way that they brought their kids up and the way they ran their families and what they were all about,” explained Jenner, 62. “You spend enough time in both houses. You just have to think: Where would I want my child being raised, in which environment? Who would I feel like my baby is going to be most comfortable and most loved ?”

“I mean, Kourtney has a certain set of values and she goes to church and I think she would raise a child to believe in God,” added Jenner. “Kim, on the other hand, she’s very hands-on with the homework and with just making sure that the kids are always where they’re supposed to be. She’s very attentive and the grooming is impeccable. … Just listen to your heart and listen to your mind, because those two things will tell you exactly who you’re supposed to pick.”

Finally, Khloé came to her decision: “I have thought this over long and hard and I’ve decided what I want to do,” she said. “I just have to make the best decision for my daughter but I also am not trying to hurt anybody’s feelings.”

“Watching Kimberly be a mom, I really respect her parenting skills — not that I don’t respect Kourtney’s, I relate to how Kim parents more,” she continued. “But at the end of the day, this family is so close and we love each other so much and if anything, God forbid, were to happen, I know my daughter is in the best of hands no matter who her legal guardian is.”

RELATED VIDEO: Kourtney Kardashian Says She’s ‘Ashamed’ of Her ‘Disgusting’ Family: ‘It’s Just Gross’

Sitting down with her two sisters, she braced herself to break the news to Kourtney.

“I just think you have different parenting styles,” she told them. “I can’t make anything official until after the baby is born, but I am going to probably have Kim as the legal guardian if, God forbid, something happens. Just because I don’t know my parenting style until I have a baby, but from what I envision my parenting style to be, I do think it will be more like Kim — a little more stricter.”

“Guess what? You don’t have to give me an explanation,” replied Kourtney. “I’ve got three kids and I’m busy on my own.”

“You’re at capacity,” suggested Khloé.

“No, I’m not at capacity,” clarified Kourtney, adding that she would like “one plus” more kids.

Kim, meanwhile, said Khloé’s decision was “an honor” and promised she would “take such good care” of any future nieces and nephews.

“I mean, I’m a little bit disappointed that I’m not the guardian, but honestly, you don’t know what your parenting style is until you have kids,” Kourtney said later. “So I think once Khloé has her own daughter and is really a mom, then maybe she will realize that we have more in common than she thinks as far as parenting styles. You never know! Khloé might switch back to me.”

Kim, meanwhile, was preparing to welcome her third child into the world — and she still didn’t have a name picked out.

“She’s coming any minute,” she said. “I think when you have a surrogate and you don’t feel the everyday pains, it just kind of creeps up on you. It’s crazy how fast it comes.”

After shooting down Jenner’s suggestions to name the baby Milan, Italy, or Rome, Kim eventually went with another city: Chicago.

“Everyone’s going to be like, ‘Oh my God, that’s the craziest name,’ ” she said. “And then they’re going to go crazy and then they’ll get used to it.”

As for the inspiration?

“The name Chicago, everyone asked me where we came up with that,” she said. “Kanye is originally from Chicago and the city is really connected to his memory of his mom, so we went with Chicago.”

And though she didn’t carry the baby herself, Kim said their mother-daughter connection was instant.

“The moment I laid eyes on my baby, I was so in love,” she said. “I’m just so excited to have this addition to my family.”

“Honestly, when it’s done, I think was the best decision I ever made,” she reflected. “I think it was such an amazing experience. I would recommend it for anyone. I am the biggest fan of surrogacy. All my fears of everything I thought was going to happen— like, am I going to connect? Am I going to feel connected? All of that goes out the door and you just instantly feel connected.”

“It’s crazy how professional surrogacy is and how instantly with the baby came out, there was no weird feeling that I was so nervous about — am I going to connect with the baby, am I going to feel the same way as if it’s me birthing my kids?” she continued. “And it was the same exact feeling, and that was instantly a relief for me. That was what I was most nervous about and I just feel so lucky that I’ve had such a good experience with surrogacy.”

Imagine Dragons Singer Dan Reynolds Says His Divorce Has Had ‘Effect’ on His Kids

Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds’ split from his wife, Aja Volkman, has taken its toll on their three young children.

During a fundraiser for the Tyler Robinson Foundation on Friday night, the rocker, 31, touched briefly on his personal life.

“I have three little girls and this year for my family has been kind of a difficult year for personal and emotional reasons,” he told PEOPLE, “and just going through that and watching the effect on my girls has been very hard for me.”

“After 7 beautiful years together, Aja and I’s marriage has come to an end,” he tweeted. “Our children continue to be the most important thing in our lives, & we will continue to coparent them with all our love. I ask that you please respect our privacy at this time as we work through this as a family.”

Reynolds didn’t harp on his personal life on Friday, rather focusing on the good that the Tyler Robinson Foundation does. The band began the foundation in 2013 after an Imagine Dragons super fan named Tyler Robinson lost his battle with cancer at the age of 17.

The purpose of the foundation is to help families offset the costs of caring for a sick child. Simply put, the band wanted to help other pediatric cancer families who are going through similar fights at Robinson’s family. On Friday night, the foundation raised $2 million. Illusionist Criss Angel, whose 4-year-old son, Johnny, has been diagnosed with cancer, donated $109,000 to the foundation.

“The beautiful thing is you’re all here tonight and you’re all giving back, and we’re all looking to help those who are in a position that I cannot even fathom,” Reynolds said. “Tonight was powerful perspective… There are families who are being told that their child has a disease that could be incurable that could take the child from them. We are blessed because we are alive right now. We have our health and we shouldn’t take it for granted.”

One Posh Family! Victoria Beckham Poses with Her Four Kids for British Vogue — See the Cover

Gang’s all here — and stylishly, to boot.

The four Beckham kids have obviously inherited their mom Victoria‘s sense of fashion, as made evident on the cover of British Vogue‘s October issue, which promises a dialogue about “family, fame & fashion” from the former Spice Girl and husband David Beckham.

While the children (Harper Seven, 7, Cruz David, 13, Romeo James, 16, and Brooklyn Joseph, 19) posed poshly for the magazine’s cover with their mom and dog Olive, the outdoor shoot also included a little summer-activity fun.

In a second photo from the spread, shot by Mikael Jansson, the kids all point water guns at each other while their parents lounge on the grass. Victoria, 44, is the only family member looking at the camera — impressive, since Olive is jumping over her lap at that very moment!

Bear Plays with Boy in Cutest Video You’ll See Today

Who says bears are big and scary animals who you should avoid at all costs if you see out in the wild?

Okay, fair enough:

A significant majority of bears are big and scary animals who you should avoid at all costs if you see out in the wild?

Heck, the bear featured in the following piece of amazing footage should probably even be avoided at all costs if you were to encounter him outside the safe confines of a zoo.

Fair warning uttered, however, allow us to now state something else...

... this bear is so gosh darn cute and precious and hilarious!

In a video first shared to Facebook by a man named Patrick Parker, the user's five-year old son Ian is at the Nashville Zoo.

Specifically, he's standing in front of the very thick glass that separates human patrons from four-legged display animals.

And when Ian starts jumping up and down in excitement?

The bear does the very same thing!

According to Ian's dad, the two enjoyed a "10-minute jump session."

We're not talking about some pure coincidence here, where the bear just happened to leap up at the same time as his short new friend.

We're talking about a coordinated jumping game, one that took all onlookers by total and complete surprise.

The footage has thus far been Liked millions of times on Facebook...

... and it's easy to see why!

Megan Fox Shares Rare Picture of Kids: Cuteness. Overload!

For years, Megan Fox was criticized for showing too much skin in various magazine pictorials.

But not even the harshest critic could accuse this actress of showing off her kids on too many occasions.

Megan Fox WonderCon Pic

As much as perhaps as big-time star in Hollywood, Fox has kept her three children very far away from the spotlight, rarely sharing an image of them online and certainly never selling any images to any supermarket tabloids.

We're guessing Fox would prefer to star in another Michael Bay-directed Transformers movie again than even contemplate doing such a thing.

Late Monday, however, the beautiful brunette shocked her Instagram followers by posting a snapshot of her three sons, all of whom she procreated along with Brian Austin Green.

Fox did so via a gorgeous collage that features one Polaroid of herself; one of four-year old Noah; one of three-year old Bodhi; and one of 11-month old Journey.

It may be of interest to some to note a couple things:

1. Green is holding the youngest of the three boys in one of the pictures.

2. Noah is wearing a Princess Elsa dress in honor of Frozen. (Why do we feel like some folks on the Internet will find fault with this?)

Megan Fox, Kids

Fox did not include a caption with the precious portrait.

Fox and Green almost never share pictures such as these.

However, they will occasionally post on social media in order to gush about their brood.

In November 2016, for example, Green returned from a seven-month Instagram hiatus to say nice things about his kids and to also compliment Fox in the process.

“My wife makes beautiful babies," he wrote at the time, referring specifically to little Journey.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star filed for divorce from her husband of five years in August 2015.

However, they reconciled the following year ... just before Fox gave birth to Journey.

Megan Fox and Husband

Even during their split, it was clear Green and Fox were still hanging out and getting along, considering Fox announced her pregnancy only a few months after the couple's supposed break-up.

In other words:

Just like any two people who end a romance, but still have feelings for each other and/or who got very drunk one night in each other's presence, the stars had unprotected sex during an alleged break and... bam!

Journey was born about nine months later.

But it's all worked out for the best.

Fox and Green seem very happy as a couple and these three adorable kids have a stable, healthy household in which to grow up.

HOORAY!

Prince George Birthday Portrait: Released, Quite Possibly the Cutest Thing in History

There's cute, like when dog owners turn their best friends into precious memes.

There's really cute, like when little kids express love in adorable, innocent fashion.

And then there's super duper extraordinarily so-very-endearing-we-just-want-to-scream-all-day-in-delight cute, like when Prince George turns four years old and his family releases the following photo in celebration:

Prince George Portrait at 4

Altogether now: AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!

The very sweet child, whose birthday is on July 22, is smiling from ear to ear in the picture above, while wearing a cute striped button-up shirt.

“The Duke and Duchess are delighted to share a new official portrait of Prince George to mark His Royal Highness's fourth birthday tomorrow,” Kensington Palace shared on Instagram on Friday afternoon.

Added the Royal Family in this statement:

“The photograph was taken at Kensington Palace at the end of June by Chris Jackson.

The Duke and Duchess are very pleased to share this lovely picture as they celebrate Prince George's fourth birthday, and would like to thank everyone for all of the kind messages they have received.”

Prince George Double Wave Canada

Prince William and Kate Middleton are parents to George and a two-year old daughter named Charlotte.

They have made a point to keep the children far away from the spotlight, rarely exposing them to a curious public and/or an irritating group of paparazzi.

Every now and then, however, around the holidays or around their birthdays, the beloved couple will unveil a new official portrait such as the one featured here.

George arrived in 2013 at 4:24 p.m. local time and weighed 8 lbs 6 oz at the time of his birth.

His proud parents carried him out to meet the press a day later for his first set of pictures, figuring they might as well get the deed over with on their own terms, lest anxious photographers try breaking down the gates of their home.

Shortly thereafter, as depicted below, the Royal Family posed for a set of memorable portraits as a unit, George included.

Later this year, George will start pre-kindergarten at a private school in London.

He had previously attended nursery school at Westacre Montessori School near his family's home in Anmer Hall in Norfolk, England.

“George is very lively and Charlotte is very ladylike,” Prince William has said of his kids. “They’re both delightful of course."

As for whether or not William and Kate will soon add to their brood?

Give the rumors a rest, will ya, people?!?

Let's just focus on the precious kids they have right now!

14 Dads Who Should Never Be Left Alone with Their Kids

We already know that certain parents out there should not be allowed to text.

Heroic Father Enables Daughter to Trick or Treat on Board Airplane

Good news, readers:

Not all flights conclude with a former reality star being taken away in handcuffs.

Some, in fact, end with passengers reduced to tears as the result of an inspiring act by a fellow human being.

This is one such story...

donut girl

An unnamed father on board a Virgin America flight from Boston to Los Angeles on Monday night didn't want his three-year old daughter to miss out on Halloween.

So he handed out candy to his fellow passengers and also gave them a note along with it.

The note read as follows:

My 3-year old daughter, Molly, was bummed that she wouldn’t be able to go trick-or-treating this year due to this flight… so I decided to bring trick-or-treating to her.

If you are willing, when my little donut comes down the aisle, please drop this in her basket. You’ll be making her Halloween! If you’re unwilling, no worries, just pass the treat back to me.

Thanks so much!

Oh, yes, the little girl was dressed like a donut.

Just in case you thought this tale couldn't get any cuter.

hero dad

"OMG, my heart is exploding right now. Dad of the year just passed out candy to everyone on the flight so his 3 year old could trick or treat," wrote a passenger who witnessed the act and then talked about it on Twitter.

“He started handing out the treats… He handed them out mostly to folks in the aisle and middle seats,” this Twitter user, Stephanie, told BuzzFeed News.

She added:

“When I first got on the plane, I overheard the little girl talking about how she was excited to trick or treat. I felt sad because I was thinking about how when we landed in San Francisco it would be way too late to trick or treat.”

Also making this story even better?

The father did not want to be identified or quoted by Buzzfeed.

He just wanted to make his little girl happy. That was it.

“The father said that he had this planned for a while with her as a special treat,” said Stephanie, who was sitting in front of the loved ones.

“The few rows around me were really into it and thought it was absolutely adorable.”

How could they not?!?

Stephanie told the dad that she Tweeted about him during the flight and the story had bee re-Tweeted 5,000 times already.

“I could tell he was pretty humbled hearing that what he did caused such a positive reaction," she said.

"He obviously wasn’t doing it for the reaction he just was genuinely doing it for his daughter.”

The proud mom seems to love doting on her adorable son. In May, she made him Mickey Mouse pancakes for his birthday — fitting, considering the family loves visits to Disneyland.

“His new best friend,” Ciara wrote next to a March snap of a giggly Future and The Mouse himself.

Dean McDermott is a true believer that love conquers all.

McDermott, 49, is expecting his fifth child with wife Tori Spelling and tells PEOPLE exclusively that their pregnancy speaks volumes about the state of their love-filled marriage.

“This baby is a testament to how much we love each other. And it’s a testament to Tori for staying with me. It’s amazing,” he tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue about the couple’s upcoming addition, who is due next year.

McDermott adds, “Love does conquer all. And that’s what this pregnancy says about our relationship. It’s everlasting.”

Watch this full episode of People Features: Tori & Dean, available now, on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go to PEOPLE.com/PEN, or download the PEN app on Apple TV, Roku Players, Amazon Fire TV, Xumo, Chromecast, iOS and Android devices.

The duo, who are parents to Liam, 9, Stella, 8, Hattie, 5, and Finn, 4, hit rock bottom just over three years ago when McDermott admitted to cheating on his wife.

But in the time since “everything crashed,” the couple made the conscious decision to work through the difficult times — and celebrated their 10-year anniversary this year.

“Obviously three years ago we hit a really rough patch and we made the conscious decision based on our love for each other and our love for our family as a whole to tough it out and work through it and get through it,” Spelling, 43, tells PEOPLE.

“And I’m so happy that that happened and there was never a doubt in my mind that I wanted to do that.”

Tori Spelling Opens Up About Expecting for the Fifth Time After a Dangerous Pregnancy

When Tori Spelling discovered she was pregnant with her fifth child, one of her first thoughts was to make sure that the terrifying ordeal she endured during her fourth pregnancy could be avoided.

“I thought if we had another baby, my life could potentially be in danger,” Spelling, 43, exclusively tells PEOPLE.

The actress suffered from placenta previa, a condition in which the placenta blocks the cervix, during her pregnancy with son Finn, now 4.

“Everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong,” continues Spelling, who spent three months in the hospital during her dangerous pregnancy due to excessive bleeding. “Dean [McDermott] and I created four beautiful children together and the thought of them not having a mother [if something went wrong again] was not something we were okay with.”

Luckily, Spelling does not have placenta previa this pregnancy. “We were so happy once we found out,” she says.

Adds McDermott, 49: “The doctor said that considering everything that happened the last time, this is a miracle baby that Tori got pregnant and that it’s okay.”

Now, the relieved parents of Liam, 9, Stella, 8, Hattie, 5 and Finn are focused on their healthy baby — and expanding their brood.

Says Spelling, “As far as cars and SUVs, we’re maxed out! And we’ll definitely be house hunting. We need another room. They’re already doubled up.”

Adds McDermott with a laugh, “We’re going to buy an apartment complex. Each child can have their own apartment!”

Holly Madison on Son Forest’s NICU Scare After Birth: ‘I Spent Hours Thinking My Baby Couldn’t See’

Holly Madison is opening up about the birth of her son, Forest Leonardo Antonio, and the “stressful” days that ensued after he was admitted into the neonatal intensive care unit.

Moments after Madison, 36, gave birth to her second child on Aug. 7, the newborn baby was swiftly taken to the NICU where he was hooked up to “a million machines.”

In a PEOPLE exclusive interview, the former Girls Next Door star recalls that medical staff “took him away to get the fluid out of his lungs. First it was the fluid, then it was jaundice, then his eyes weren’t dilating, and I spent hours thinking my baby couldn’t see.”

Madison, who is also mom to 3-year-old daughter Rainbow Aurora and married to 42-year-old events company owner Pasquale Rotella, says the three days after her son’s birth were “stressful.”

But after doctors deemed the now 6-week-old perfectly healthy, Madison and Rotella were able to bring their baby home.

Now although Madison says the first few days were “a super emotional time,” the experience made motherhood even more meaningful. “It was such a relief,” says Madison.

In the almost two months since Forest’s birth, Madison says her “sweet” son is bonding well with the family, and big sister Rainbow has “been great.”

And now that Madison has both a boy and a girl, she notes one comical difference between the two. “Diaper changes are way harder with a boy,” Madison laughingly says. “I’m getting hosed down on a regular basis!”
