Holly Madison loves experimenting with maternity fashion.

The former Playboy model is expecting her first child with partner Pasquale Rotella and she has embraced her pregnancy clothes because she can try out different styles as shape changes.

She said: ''When I'm getting dressed up for an event, I'm not going to be super-skinny, so you might as well have fun with your look.

''I've been looking at different shapes and different gowns, and just having fun with it.

''It's a relief to not have to worry about sucking in my stomach all the time on the red carpet. I use it as an excuse to have fun with a different look.''

Holly's dietary habits have changed since she got pregnant and she has adopted a much healthier lifestyle now she is carrying a child.

The 34-year-old blonde beauty told America's OK! magazine: ''Since I've been pregnant, I've lost my taste for fast food.

''I used to be the biggest McDonald's junkie and now I don't like it anymore. I used to be the biggest fast food connoisseur, and now I've really lost my taste for it.

''I think my secrets are being health-conscious and having fun with the whole change. I've been much more health-conscious since I've been pregnant, because I'm worrying about the health of my baby, and not just my health.

''Before, I was lackadaisical about my own health. I was just like, 'Whatever.' My goal was to get through the day, and do all the jobs I had to do, and try and be Miss Overachiever.

''But when you have a baby inside you, you're like, 'Whoa!' Anything can happen here, I've got to give this baby all the nutrients it needs and really take care of myself, so this is definitely the healthiest I've ever been in my life.''
