She was almost late, late for a very important date!

But, fortunately, Holly Madison recently placed the finishing touches on her Alice In Wonderland themed nursery — just in time for her daughter’s arrival.

“We have decided to induce the delivery if necessary. I will go in Monday afternoon or early evening,” she tells the Las Vegas Sun.

But Madison, whose official due date is March 5, warns baby girl’s birth at the Las Vegas-area hospital may take some time — “Up to three more days,” she says — which will be spent privately with boyfriend Pasquale Rotella.

“You’ll know when the baby is born, but I’m not going to be Tweeting during the delivery,” she shares.

The couple have already decided on their daughter’s name, but the former Girls Next Door star admits their tough choice may eventually send them back to the drawing board.

“It’s such an unusual and difficult name I have a feeling we’ll add something simpler once she’s arrived safely in our world,” Madison, who is currently filming a new television special, says.

Anticipating a quick bounce back after baby, the mom-to-be — who has plans to wed Rotella this summer — is set to start taking supplements following her daughter’s delivery.

“I’m totally planning on having my placenta turned into pills I can take after giving birth,” she explains. “I heard it helps women recover faster, and I want to recover as quickly as I can.”

In the midst of living “the happiest days of my life,” Madison, 33, is counting down the minutes until her dream of motherhood is finally fulfilled.

“I’m feeling very relaxed, very, very happy, contented, yet a little restless with anticipation, but all is good,” she explains. “I’m ready now for the delivery. I can’t wait to be a mommy, although I’m not giving up my career.”
