Actress Hayden Panettiere can't wait to start a family with her rumoured fiance Wladimir Klitschko - because she has always wanted to be a young mother.
The former Heroes star began dating the Ukrainian boxer in 2009, but they split in 2011 before reconciling earlier this year (13), when reports emerged the couple was secretly engaged.
Panettiere has yet to comment on the news, but during a recent interview with Glamour magazine the pretty 23 year old insisted their relationship with Klitschko is stronger than ever.
She said, "An acquaintance of ours did a coffee-table book, and the proceeds went to genocide prevention. We met at the party for the launch of the book; we've been friends for years - we've never not been close... It blows my mind sometimes that us getting (back) together has gotten so much attention. It's like, 'Really? This is breaking news?'"
And the beauty can't wait to settle down and have children.
She added, "I've always wanted to be a young mum... 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!'
"I'm like, 'What are you talking about?' Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there's nothing that I feel I can't accomplish while having children in my life. I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids."
