Hayden Panettiere Gives Birth & Her Baby's Name is So Sweet
The wait is over, Nashville, Heroes, and Bring it On: All or Nothing fans! Our baby girl is all grown up and has given birth to her very own baby. FINALLY, Hayden Panettiere gave birth to daughter on Tuesday, welcoming her first child with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko. Needless to say, the happy couple deserves a big old congratulations for creating a person together. Mazel Tov, kids!
As People reports, the Nashville star's baby girl weighed in at a healthy 7 lbs., 14 oz. As for the name — drumroll please — the new parents settled on something very classic and sweet for their daughter: Kaya Klitschko. In a statement to the magazine, the ecstatic parents commented, "We are over the moon and madly in love!"
The news broke back in May that the 25-year-old Nashville star was expecting a child with her Russian pugilist boyfriend, but Panettiere herself didn't confirm the news until August via her Ice Bucket Challenge video. Just a few days later at the Emmy's red carpet, she confirmed she was having a baby girl and it appeared to be on accident. Silly celebrities, no subtle clue concerning their personal lives goes unanalyzed.
For the past few weeks, the press has been on the edge of their proverbial seats waiting for the very pregnant actress to give birth. In mid-November, she was photographed wading in her bikini while on vacation in Hawaii, looking very close to being due.
Jury's still out on when Panettiere and Klitschko will be getting married, but for now, they've got enough on their plate. After all, they did just create a person together. They certainly deserve a few days of doing absolutely nothing except for marveling at the miracle of life.
