Who doesn’t love a story about Hollywood babies, who doesn’t love a story about babies as a whole? We’ll tell you who, Satan, terrorists and hit-men. So this story is definitely not for anyone who falls into these categories, as we are going to spend most of our time talking about Hayden Panettiere’s baby and the first time mom.
So without further ado, let’s jump in.
Hayden Panettiere’s Baby
It was during the upsurge of the ALS ice bucket challenge that Hayden Panettiere decided to share some exciting news with the world. We have seen some pretty ‘dope’ pregnancy announcements in our day, but Hayden certainly caught us unaware when she said these words during her ALS ice bucket challenge.
‘I accept my ALS Challenge, I renominate Kacey Musgraves – you’re not getting out of this, Wladimir Klitschko [her fiance], and my unborn child.’ Then she got soaked in icy cold water.
Since then, Hayden was more than proud to bask in her post pregnancy glory and believe us when we say she basked well. The 2014 Emmy Awards was her first red carpet with a baby bump and she did it justice. She showed up wearing a low-cut silver Lorena Sarbu gown, teaming her dress with Salvatore Ferragamo heels, Judith Leiber clutch, and Fred Leighton jewels.
It was at this A-list event that she let the sex of her unborn baby slip out… mistakenly. She told Giuliana Rancic, ‘ I can’t wait for her to come out, this little one.’ The star was still filming episodes for Nashville while her little one grew inside of her so they did what was best for the show and knocked up her on screen character, Juliette Barnes.
So instead of opting for her to hide her growing baby bump with creatively placed objects, over sized coats and strategic camera angles, her on screen persona lived through her pregnancy too.
On December 9, 2014, Kaya Evdokia Klitschko was warmly welcomed into the world, but instead of her birth to bring Hayden joy, she was launched into a sea of depression. She battled postpartum depression and she made headlines when she sought treatment for it.
She told Entertainment Tonight, ‘ I’ve gotten an incredible amount of support and I was actually really surprised cause I feel like I grew up in this industry that, in my mind, was very judgmental.
She added, ‘ I didn’t even look at social media. Then, when I looked, people were like, ‘Oh my gosh, good for you,’ and I am so proud to be a spokesperson and a woman that people can look to and to know that they’re not alone and they’re not weak if they go and they seek help.’
So today, Kaya is a happy baby, with a happy mummy and daddy and if the rumor mill is correct she will soon have a happy sibling. We are patiently waiting for Hayden Panettiere’s baby number 2.
Hayden Panettiere’s Husband
In actuality, Hayden is not married yet. The actress has been engaged to Wladimir Klitschko for a little over three years now. How did the two meet? Well, it turns out that Hayden is quite the pick up artist. She revealed on the Ellen DeGeneres show, that their first conversation went something like this, ‘ I know that I’m small, but he’s large. That’s how we met. I said, ‘You’re huge.’ And he said, ‘You’re tiny.’ And that was it.’
She also revealed in In the April issue of UK Cosmopolitan, ‘ I’m in awe of what he does and who he is — that’s a very strong feeling. He doesn’t let me get away with things; he has the patience of a saint, but he is definitely no shrinking violet.’
To understand the gravity of that statement, here’s a little summary on who Wladimir Klitschko is. Wladimir Wladimirowitsch Klitschko, is a professional boxer of Ukrainian descent and he was born on 25 March 1976. He’s kind of a big deal too, as Klitschko is a former world heavyweight champion of three major sanctioning bodies, having held the titles of the WBA, IBF, and WBO.
In addition to that, he has held the IBO, Ring magazine, and lineal heavyweight titles. So you see, Hayden has herself a tough and accomplished man too.
Hayden Panettiere’s Tattoos
The actress has also been swept along in the body art trend and she has four tattoos to prove it. She has writing on her finger, a zodiac sign on her ankle, Sanskrit on her forearm and an Italian inscription on her side. Her most popular piece of body art by far is, the Italian inscription on her side.
Not only is it the largest, but it made headlines for being misspelled. The tattoo reads, ‘Vivere senza rimipianti’ which transcribes to ‘to live without regrets’. The last word, ‘rimipianti’ had an extra ‘i’ attached to it and that kind of ruined it for everyone, including the star.
That was the end of that tattoo, as the artist went through the painful process of getting it removed.
