Hayden Panettiere Pregnant With First Baby

Hayden Panettiere is pregnant with her first baby with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko.

The 24-year-old Nashville star has been engaged to Ukranian boxer Wladimir, 38, for a year.

The couple has yet to confirm the news but a mysterious 'source' told US Weekly magazine:

"Hayden is totally pregnant!"

Hayden has been dropping hints that she's ready to become a mum for some time. However, hers and Wladmir's path to parenthood has not been smooth.

Their romantic relationship has been on-and-off since they met at a book launch party in 2009. They officially split up in 2011, but were back together by the spring of 2013 and quickly got engaged.

At the time, Hayden told Glamour magazine that she felt she was 'born to be a mother'.

"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?'" 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."

Hayden, who is 5ft 2in, has previously joked about what her children with 6ft 6in heavyweight champ Wladimir might look like:

"He's got bowlegs and I've got knocked knees, so they're going to have straight legs," Panettiere quipped during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in November 2013.

"And they'll be normal height!"
