“Now I’m holding my beautiful son at the hospital reading amazing birthday wishes from all of you. Definitely one of the most memorable weeks of my life! Lots of love to everyone who took the time to post, tag or send me a message online. I’m grateful & touched! We’ll be heading home from the hospital later & I’ll be posting photos of the new baby soon. Thanks ‘n love you ALL!”
Madison revealed the name of her newborn son on Friday, sharing a photo of her holding a big blue teddy bear along with the caption, “I’m so happy to be at home with a healthy baby boy, Forest Leonardo Antonio Rotella. Thank you for all the kind comments over the past few days.”
The new baby joins Madison, 36, and Rotella’s firstborn, 3-year-old big sister Rainbow Aurora — who had a very special part in her parents’ exciting news, and seems ready to take on some older-sibling duties.
“[Rainbow] was the first person my husband and I told,” Madison said shortly after the announcement, which was followed up by her rep confirming in March that her second child would be a boy.

Forest’s unique name is no surprise: Madison had said she would likely steer clear of everyday monikers.
