Nashville star Hayden Panatierre is pregnant with her first child, People announced today. This will be the first child for the 24 year old actress and her heavyweight boxing champion fiancee Wladimir Klitschko, 38. The couple announced their engagement this past October.
The petite Panettierre (5’2”) hopes her children will be a more average height than she and her fiancee. In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres last fall, she laughed that when she and Klitschko (6’6”) met, she said “ ‘You’re huge,’ and he said, ‘You’re tiny.’ “
Panettierre has been looking forward to being a mom. Last year in an interview with Glamour magazine she said, “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.”
