Congratulations to Hayden Panettiere, who is reportedly pregnant with her first child! According to an extremely detailed statement from an informative source at Us Weekly:
“Hayden is totally pregnant!”
Well there you have it! There’s the proof right there! Sort of. But I’m choosing to believe it, because even though I have no cause to be more or less excited about this baby than I would be about anyone else’s, I’m super psyched for Hayden for some reason!
Maybe it’s because Hayden is only twenty-four, and I’m used to celebrities waiting a little longer to start their families. But I guess it makes sense, because her fiance, Ukrainian heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko is thirty-eight and Hayden’s always been open about wanting kids right away. In the May 2013 issue of Glamour, Hayden said:
“I’ve lived a very big life, and I don’t feel my age, and I feel like I 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?’ 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.”
So apparently this was just a matter of time! Hayden and Wladimir have been on-and-off since meeting at a book party in 2009, which was five years ago at this point. And more and more, celebrities and normals alike aren’t super stressed about being married before they start having kids. Just look at all these A-listers who are engaged and pregnant at the same time!
She even speculated about what her kids with Wladimir would look like in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres in November 2013, saying:
“He’s got bowlegs and I’ve got knocked knees, so they’re going to have straight legs. And they’ll be normal height.”
Ha! I love it. Let’s get this lady a baby!
