Nashville star Hayden Panettiere, 24, is expecting her first child with 38-year-old fiancé Wladimir Klitschko.
The couple started dating in 2009 after meeting at a book party. They briefly split up in 2011, but reunited and got engaged in October of 2013. They recently told Us Weekly that they have always wanted children.
“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," Panettiere told the magazine, which first reported that she is expecting.
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in November 2013, Panettiere joked about what their children might look like.
“He’s got bowlegs and I’ve got knocked knees, so they’re going to have straight legs. And they’ll be normal height," the former Heroes star joked.
Panettiere was last seen on a red carpet at the Met Gala in New York earlier this month, wearing a dress that was loose around her stomach region. The couple is very excited to be expecting a baby.
Panettiere's Nashville did score a third season and will be back in the fall on ABC.
