Hayden Panettiere has been keeping a low-profile since she announced her pregnancy in May. Yet there was no missing the 25-year-old Nashville star at the 2014 Emmy Awards on Monday as she wowed on the red carpet in a floor-length gown by Lorena Sarbu.

Clearly, Hayden was in the mood to sparkle. She accessorised her dress with a subtle silver hairband, Fred Leighton jewellery and a Judith Leiber clutch bag. And she had good reason for choosing a gown which showed off her baby bump, too.

Hayden told E! News host Giuliana Rancic that she's expecting a girl.

"I'm thrilled," the actress told Rancic, "I can't wait for her to come out."

Hayden also revealed she's been craving "chicken noodle soup" since becoming pregnant and spoke about her struggle with dressing a baby bump.

"The only thing that's difficult is making sure that it's tucked away," she said. "My feet get sore when I'm wearing no shoes. I've never felt this amount of weight on me."

Hayden revealed she is expecting her first child with boxer Wladimir Klitschk earlier this summer.

The couple, who started dating in 2009, got engaged in 2013 after a short split in 2011.
