Hayden Panettiere and her fiancé, Ukranian boxer Wladimir Klitschko, are expecting their first child together.

Hayden Panettiere, Wladimir Klitschko Expecting

"Hayden is totally pregnant!" an insider has told Us Weekly.

Panettiere, 24, who has been engaged to Klitschko for a year, has openly stated her desire to start a family with her athlete fiancé.

"He's got bowlegs and I've got knocked knees, so they're going to have straight legs," Panettiere quipped on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in November of last year. "And they'll be normal height."

Despite being rather young, Panettiere recently revealed that she feels ready to welcome children into her life, having been working in Hollywood since her childhood. The Nashville star also doesn’t think that starting a family will hold her back from doing the things she wants to do.

"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," Panettiere told Glamour last year. "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.

Panettiere and Klitschko first met in 2009 at a book party. They went on to date for two years before splitting in 2011. When they reconciled in 2013, it wasn’t long before they went public with their engagement.
