Hayden Panettiere is expecting a baby.
According to sources, the Nashville actress, 24, is expecting her first child with her fiance, boxer Wladimir Klitschko, 38.
“Hayden is totally pregnant!” a source told Us Weekly of the couple’s news.
Hayden and Wladimir have been engaged for a year, following a three year on-off romance. Previously, Hayden told a magazine she was keen to have children soon and felt she was “born to be a mother.”
She told Glamour Magazine, “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 continued, “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 added, joking that despite her 5 ft frame and her fiance’s 6 ft 6 in frame, her kids will be “normal height.”
She also revealed that her wedding plans are on hold due to political issues in Wladimir’s native Ukraine, “Everything that’s happening in Ukraine definitely put a hold on things. But we have time.”
