One of ABC’s Nashville resident hotties is going to be one hot mama! Actress and singer Hayden Panettiere is pregnant and expecting her first child with her fiancé, Wladimir Klitschko, a Ukrainian heavyweight professional boxer. The couple met at a book party in 2009, and dated for two years before splitting up in 2011. The Nashville star, 24, reunited with Klitschko, 38, and they became engaged in the fall of 2013.
In a May 2013 interview in Glamour, the beautiful blonde spoke about her future with Klitschko and expressed her desire to start a family.
“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 stated. “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.”
The Heroes alum is famously petite, while her beau is a whopping 6-foot-6 boxer. She joked about what her kids with Klitschko might look like while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in November 2013. “He’s got bowlegs and I’ve got knocked knees, so they’re going to have straight legs,” Panettiere kidded during the appearance . “And they’ll be normal height.”
The star was last seen looking radiant while on a red carpet at the Met Gala earlier this month.
