Holly Madison's final baby countdown has begun! With her first child — a baby girl — due Tuesday, March 5, the pregnant Playboy model, 33, plans to check into a Las Vegas hospital on Monday, she told the Las Vegas Sun on Sunday.

"It's time now. We have decided to induce the delivery if necessary," the Girls Next Door said of her first baby-to-be with boyfriend Pasquale Rotella. "I will go in Monday afternoon or early evening. It still might take up to three more days, though."

Club promoter Rotella will be by Madison's side during the delivery, the Peepshow performer added. "He's as excited about it as I am — maybe more!"

And though Madison has been sharing her pregnancy experience with fans every step of the way via her blog and Twitter, she has her limits. "You'll know when the baby is born, but I'm not going to be tweeting during the delivery," she said, laughing.

And their imminently arriving baby girl has a name already, as well. "We have her name picked out, but that has to remain a secret for now . . . 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."

For now, there are pre-baby jitters: "I'm feeling very relaxed, very, very happy, contented, yet a little restless with anticipation, but all is good. I'm ready now for the delivery. I can't wait to be a mommy, although I’m not giving up my career. Everything is wonderful. These are the happiest days of my life."
