Things go down at Electric Daisy Carnival that don't go down elsewhere, like for instance, Holly Madison getting engaged to her baby daddy atop a Ferris wheel. Yes, that happened: According to the former Playmate's blog, Pasquale Rotella, with whom she has daughter Rainbow Aurora, proposed to her as her friends looked on:

I got engaged on Sunday! My fiancé was so wonderful in creating such a romantic night! He proposed to me at the top of the Ferris wheel at EDC Las Vegas. I was so happy that so many of our close friends were there to share the wonderful moment with us! We rode around the festival on the art car until the sun came up! I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful or magical proposal!

According to People, Madison has said that she and Rotella want to have tons more babies:

"[I want] a huge family, like a Kardashian-sized family...I want to have three, then wait a few years for them to be older, then have another three."
