Pregnant Hayden Panettiere, who is engaged to Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko, accidentally revealed the gender of her unborn child at Emmys 2014 red carpet.
The “Nashville” star made her first public appearance with her baby bump at the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet, and revealed she and fiance Klitschko are preparing for a baby girl. Pregnant Hayden Panettiere looked fresh and glitzy in a low neckline gown at the Emmys 2014 red carpet.
The blonde beauty gushed about her pregnancy, and told E! News: “I’m thrilled. I can’t wait for her to come out.” Picking up on Panettiere’s gender slip, TV journalist Giuliana Rancic asked, “Girl?”, prompting the actress to reluctantly confirm a daughter is on the way.
She added that she wanted to find out the sex of the baby because she “likes to shop for her baby girl and paint the room appropriately”. Hayden also spoke about her pregnancy. She said, “My feet get sore when I’m wearing no shoes. I’ve never felt this amount of weight on me.” Speaking about the pregnancy cravings, Hayden said that her cravings for chicken noodle soup has just increased.
In May, the couple revealed that they were expecting their first child together. Hayden must be preparing to welcome a baby girl next year.
Hayden Panettiere’s fiancé Wladimir Klitschko is absolutely enthralled with his wife’s baby bump. He gushed about how the ‘Nashville’ star will be an “amazing mom”. Their long-awaited wedding date is set for August 24, which is Ukrainian Independence Day, and Hayden Panettiere will most definitely be sporting a baby bump friendly wedding dress as she will be three months pregnant!
Panettiere’s boxer husband spilled the beans on his fiancée and becoming a baby daddy.
“She’s an amazing person and I’m more than sure that she’s going to be an amazing mom,” the professional boxer told in an E! News interview, “Her wish to become a mother and have a child [was something] she’s been mentioning and telling me about a lot. You know, every dream will eventually come true and she’s going to be more than an amazing mother.”
When he was asked how he will take on the heavy duty of parenting, he said, “When you’re going to become a father or a parent, your life is going to change. So I look forward to having my life change for the good.”
Just like a good father, Wladimir Klitschko, 38, said that the gender of the baby doesn’t matter to him. “It’s not important where the baby is going to be born. It’s not important [whether it's a] boy or girl. What’s important is that the baby’s healthy.”
Hayden Panettiere, 24, became pregnant in the summer of 2014 and looks to deliver the mini-Hayden in either March or April of next year!
The couple has also secured their wedding date as August 24, which is three weeks time. Hayden Panettiere and her fiancé Wladimir Klitschko couldn’t be more relaxed and in love as the wedding date nears!

When Hayden Panettiere gets her Nashville scripts, she reads them first as a fan, and then as an actor. “I don’t connect myself with the character immediately. Initially, it’s ‘Oh, my gosh, Juliette, you idiot! Are you kidding me?’”
And yet after a season where her country diva became an industry pariah by very publicly breaking up a radio titan’s marriage (and appearing to have denounced God’s existence in a viral video), then wound up betraying her soulmate Avery by drunkenly hooking up with the record exec who’d booted her from his label, “the brilliance of the writing” has made fans “very forgiving of Juliette,” says the actress. “They’ve actually managed to find empathy for someone who just makes mistake after mistake after mistake.”
Of course, Panettiere’s nuanced performance — full of humor, heartache and oodles of diva brass — wins over audiences, too, and made her one of TVLine’s Dream Emmy Nominees as Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
So, while Panettiere admits she was especially nervous about how Nashville fans would feel about Juliette’s aforementioned indiscretion with Jeff Fordham — “especially since they love Avery, and they love her and Avery together” — from a purely creative point of view, “the more fuel you put in my fire, the happier I’m going to be.”
TVLine caught up with the actress to talk about her epic season-finale monologue, her funniest one-liner and the way wardrobe helps delineate between Juliette’s public and private personas.
TVLINE | Let’s jump right in and talk about the Season 2 finale, your last scene with Avery (Jonathan Jackson) to be specific: After he asks her why she cheated on him, Juliette has that monologue about her difficult childhood, about her experiences with her mom’s “older guy” friends, about feeling like she’s just “trailer trash covered in rhinestones.” Tell me about coming to that point in Juliette’s character development, about making her that vulnerable.
You know, one of the things that has been such a blessing about playing this character is that, as forward as Juliette has been and as many times as she’s fallen on her face, there’s always something else to learn about her, to understand about her. For me, that scene was a big point of realization about my own character, about her and her past and where she comes from. Because I can come up with things in my head and speculate as to what’s gotten her to this place and why she is the way she is, but it’s not until you have monologues like that, that things really become clear.
[Juliette] really broke down. She really trusts Avery – and that’s the difference between him and all of the other relationships that she’s been in. She was on her knees going, “I am admitting to you something that I would never admit to anyone — nor have I ever really admitted to myself.” She’s that kind of person who puts a wall up in her head, and all that pain goes behind a door and it gets filtered and forgotten. But in that moment, she knew that she was going to lose the most important relationship she had ever had in her life. I’d say it was definitely one of my favorite scenes.
TVLINE | How many takes did it require to bring those emotions to the surface?
I love when they use as many cameras as they can — especially when you’re doing monologues like that. You want to be able to think about what you’re saying and come up with it in the moment. I knew the lines, but it wasn’t so set in my head that it just became repetitive to me. So, sometimes with emotional scenes, I’ll ask them to do the close-ups first, because the fresher I am with it, the better I feel. [In that scene], Juliette was speaking out of realization. She was going through it in that moment. This wasn’t something she had planned to say. She was almost speaking to herself, as much as to Avery. She was finally saying all this stuff out loud and coming to the realization about herself in that very moment.
TVLINE | The funny thing is, Avery wasn’t a terribly likeable character throughout Season 1 — or a good chunk of Season 2. Somehow he and Juliette bring out the best in each other — and their relationship has shown us her softer side, too. Was it fun this season to play that – to be able to leave her brattiness and hardness behind for a minute?
Absolutely. To play the “villain,” if you will, it’s only interesting when there’s a balance. If a character is constantly sweet you’re going to have a problem with it. If a character is constantly monstrous and evil, you’re going to have a problem with it. It’s the balance that makes it relatable and human — and that’s what we want to see. You forgive [Juliette] and you understand her and you love her, because the person that she is outside of the industry is a good person, a sweet girl. But she’s been through a lot. A lot of people will say “What a bitch,” but you know what? A lot of the time, while I don’t fully agree with the way she goes about things, most of the time I agree with her opinion about the situation. I genuinely do.
TVLINE | Speaking of balancing acts, the episode after Juliette has sex with Jeff is the one where the main characters go to the military base and perform. I thought that was an amazing episode for you because there wasn’t a single second where we couldn’t see that mistake haunting Juliette, see the panic and the sickness on her face. How did you achieve that?
It was probably as fresh and new to me as it was to Juliette, because I think that was the first time that she had ever cared enough to regret her actions. There have been very few things that this girl has allowed herself to feel guilty about in her life, and very few people, if any, that she’s genuinely hurt without going, “Well, take it, or leave it. This is life. I’ve been hurt too, and you’re not going to get sympathy from me.” So the guilt she’s feeling [over betraying Avery], it’s absolutely sickening, and you question your mind, “Even if I can guarantee a hundred percent that no one will ever find out, can I live with that? Can I live knowing that I did something that gives me nightmares?” Those scenes were really tough, because I was dealing with that hanging over my head, and also dealing with the fact that it was the first time that we realize that Juliette’s stepdad, who was her rock, and for all intents and purposes was her father, was a Blackhawk pilot and had died in a [training] accident. When people have been emotionally through a lot of trauma in the past, you almost become numb in a certain way where your brain shuts down. You tend to go into system overload — where things aren’t even in focus to you anymore. It’s such an intense emotional state that there are no words to describe it.
