Hayden Panettiere is not just engaged… she’s pregnant! Reports say that the 24-year-old is expecting a child with her fiance and partner since 2009, Wladimir Klitschko. The couple have been engaged for just about a year.
She may be young, but the former child star has spoken openly about her desire for children one day. “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 told Glamour in May 2013. “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.” In the piece, she even played coy about Wladimir being the future father of her child, since she hadn’t confirmed her engagement yet.
Hayden and Wladimir, a professional boxer, met at a party in 2009. They split in 2011, and reunited in 2013, just in time to get engaged. Hayden has not revealed a wedding date yet, but maybe it’ll happen before this baby arrives!
