Hayden Panettiere is pregnant!
Time to induct a new member into the Celebrity Mommy-To-Be Club. Nashville star Hayden Panettiere is expecting her first child with fiance Wladimir Klitschko.
“Hayden is totally pregnant!” an insider tells Us Weekly of the Heroes alum, 24, who has been engaged to her boxer beau, 38, for a year.
The couple dated for a couple years, starting in 2009. They broke up in 2011 but realized by spring of 2013 that they were meant to be. They’re set to wed as soon as the fighting in Klitschko’s native Ukraine settles down a bit — so it could be a while.
It’s no secret Panettiere has been into the idea of motherhood for a while. Shortly after news of their engagement broke, the petite starlet told Glamour that there’s nothing she wants more than to have a baby with her 6-foot-6 hubby.
“I’ve lived a very big life, and I don’t feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother,” she said. “Sometimes people speak about [having kids] like, 'Your life ends—you’re never going to be able to do anything again!’ And I’m like, 'What are you talking about?’ Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there’s nothing that I feel like I can’t accomplish while having children in my life.”
She even joked with Ellen DeGeneres about what their kids might look like.
“He’s got bowlegs and I’ve got knocked knees, so they’re going to have straight legs,” Panettiere said in November. “And they’ll be normal height.”
Now, if only that same logic applied to their last names.
