Hayden Panettiere Pregnant With Wladimir Klitschko's Baby: A Look At Their Love Story 4232362 News

Nashville actress Hayden Panettiere is expecting her first child with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko. People magazine reported the happy news, although Panettiere is yet to officially confirm. There’s been a lot of Panettiere pregnancy talk later and there’s usually no smoke without fire, so we’re inclined to believe that this one is true.

24-year-old Panettiere became engaged to 38-year-old Ukrainian heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko in October 2013. The couple originally met at a mutual friend's party in 2009 and began dating shortly after. They split amicably in May 2011, citing long-distance as the cause of the breakup and explained that they would remain good friends. Panettiere began dating NFL plater Scotty McKnight in June 2011 before splitting in December 2012. Four months later she confirmed in an interview that she has reunited with Klitschko and the pair had rekindled their romance.

Although initially considered an unusual couple, Panettiere and Klitschko have emerged to become one of our favourite celebrity pairs over the years. Speaking of their brief split, Panettiere admitted it made her realise that she couldn’t “live without him.” She explained, “It means a lot when you experience life with someone, then you experience life without him and decider hat you don’t want to live without him.” She added, “You date, you try to be with different people, you make mistakes, and you get to know yourself in the process. And in the end you want to be with someone who makes you the best version of yourself.”

Panettiere found fame on the NBC series Heroes, in which she played cheerleader Claire Bennet (remember the whole “Save the Cheerleader, Save the World” thing?) before going on to land the role of Juliette Barnes in ABC’s musical drama Nashville in 2012. Born in New York, Panettiere began acting at 11 months old and has starred in a string of TV series including One Life to Live and Guiding Light. At ten years old she also appeared in the Disney feature film Remember the Titans.

Born in Semey, Kazakhstan and educated in Ukraine, Wladimir Klitschko is one of the world’s most successful heavyweight boxers. His brother Vitali is a Ukrainian politician who is currently the Mayor of Kiev. At 6 foot 6 inches Klitschko is a foot and 6 inches taller than 5 foot tall Panettiere.

If we were little Hayden we’d be a concerned about growing the baby of a heavyweight, although plucky Panettiere seems to think that combined they will create an average sized human. She once told Ellen DeGeneres, “That's God telling us were too far on either side of the spectrum. He needs to make normal people. He’s got bowlegs, I've got knocked knees—they're going to have straight legs. They'll be normal height."

The couple first met in 2009 at a book party and dated for two years before splitting up but they reconciled this April (2013). Since their engagement last October (2013), they haven't been able to set a date due to both individuals' busy schedules.

The former 'Heroes' star has been very open in the past on the subject of starting her own family with Klitschko, and in an interview with the May 2013 issue of Glamour, she spoke candidly of motherhood.

"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," she said to the magazine. "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?'"

Adding, "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."

Hayden Panettiere Pregnant: Who Is Mr. Wladimir Klitschko? 4218044 News

Hayden Panettiere and her fiancé Wladimir Klitschko are said to be expecting a child together. The Nashville actress and the Ukrainian boxer got engaged last year after an on-off three year relationship but were forced to postpone their wedding due to the ongoing civil unrest in 36 year-old Wladimir's home country.

"Hayden is totally pregnant!" an insider told Us Weekly, breaking the news which has not yet been confirmed by either party. Hayden expecting a baby wouldn't have come completely out of the blue either: the 24 year-old actress has previously explained how she feel like she was "born to be a mother" and has joked that hers and Wladimir's children would be "normal height" due to their extreme differences in height.

Whilst Panettiere, who made her name starring in action series Heroes, is the more famous of the two, Klitschko has had a pretty interesting life too. The heavyweight professional boxer is the longest-reigning and most accomplished IBF, WBO & IBO heavyweight champion in history.

With a PhD in sports science to his name, Wladimir is also fluent in four languages, including Russian and English.

Known as The Steel Hammer, then Dr. Steel Hammer, Wladimir has a formidable reputation in the ring and stands at a mighty 6 foot 6 inches, compared to his fiancée's teeny five foot.

Hayden Panettiere's eyelashes used to 'snap off' 4107841 News

Hayden Panettiere had to wear fake eye lashes because her own would ''snap off.''

The 24-year-old actress always wears mascara to lengthen her pale lashes, but excessively using the product when she was younger made her real ones weak and they started to break.

She told E! News: ''I have blonde eye lashes, so mascara is always a must. I was wearing so much that my lashes would just snap off, I had to wear fake eye lashes.''

Since then, Hayden has used ''moisturising mascara'' to strengthen her real lashes and help them grow, so no longer needs to use the artificial alternatives.

The blonde beauty explained: ''Lately, I've been using the moisturising mascara, and now they've grown to the point where I don't even need fake lashes at all.''

Another of Hayden's favourite cosmetics is Neutrogena's MoistureSmooth range which she carries everywhere with her because the sticks have multiple uses.

The 'Nashville' star added: ''I love Neutrogena's MoistureSmooth color sticks - I use them on set. Sometimes you don't want to carry a purse, so these are great for touch-ups and these will fit inside a tiny clutch, unlike anything else! They also double as cream blush ... I love using it on the lip and cheeks.''

Hayden Panettiere Talks Ukrainian Political Unrest - Oh, And Wedding Gowns 4098164 News

Hayden Panettiere may have gotten a “very sweet and simple and genuine” proposal from her now fiancé, boxer Wladimir Klitschko, but that doesn’t mean she can’t have some fun during the engagement. "It wasn't about being overwhelmed by fireworks or a mariachi band," the Nashville star, 24, reveals in the April/May issue of Brides.

Panettiere can definitely rock a gown.

According to the interview, Panettiere is very laid back about the whole thing and is yet to start planning the wedding or picking out her dress for that matter. It was nice of Brides magazine to help her out, dressing her in a bunch of designer wedding dresses – including Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa and Monique Lhuillie gowns - for the mother of all bridal photo shoots in this month’s issue. The former Heroes star shared some of her unique views on weddings in an interview with the magazine.

"When eyes have been on me in the past, it's been because of an event, where people see me as a persona, as Hayden Panettiere the actress," she explained.

Apparently even showbiz veterans like Panettiere can get jittery on the big day – and with good reason. "For the aisle, you're the purest, most emotionally stripped down version of yourself, sharing this raw moment with the most important people in your life. It seems very overwhelming!"

Hayden Panettiere
But a wedding dress is entirely different, says the actress.

The unrest in Klitschko’s native Ukraine was also discussed, although the actress chose to stay away from any actual politics. Despite having some personal ties to the situation – Klitschko’s brother Vitali is a major player in the ongoing protests, Panettiere said only: “It's a beautiful country with beautiful people and a culture that I love. With his brother running for president and the mass demonstrations [against the government aligning with Russia], it's an incredible thing to be a part of.”

'Heroes' To Return, But What Went Wrong With The First Run? 4083415 News

The first season of Heroes was undeniably gripping. The show quickly gained a loyal following and no one could argue that the end of each episode left you on tenterhooks, itching for just a little bit more information to try and work out what the hell was going on. Who wasn’t utterly bamboozled by the very cryptic ‘Save the cheerleader, save the world’ and Claire Bennet’s mysterious regeneration? The first series of Heroes felt promising and fresh, in the early days of the show fans looked forward to a long and fruitful relationship with the show.

masi oka heroes reborn Masi Oka starred in the original Heroes

That’s why it was even more of a letdown when over the following seasons it became apparent that the writers had absolutely no idea what the show was meant to be, or where it was heading. Heroes had all of the ingredients to be a smash hit, but something about it just felt clumsy. The villain of the first season, Sylar, played by Zachary Quinto, was sinister to the max. There was something inherently evil about Quinto’s Sylar, which just wasn’t quite matched in the following seasons. Story lines went nowhere, characters felt underdeveloped.  Nobody was surprised to learn that the plots for the coming seasons were rarely planned in advance, it was that obvious. But it was also a shame for a show with that much latent potential to fail so miserably.

With all of this said, we’re still absolutely bursting with excitement about the announcement that the show is set to return in 2015. This time round the series will feature new characters and will be renamed Heroes Reborn. However, it has been indicated that some of the original cast may also be returning to star in the rejigged series. Masi Oka, an original cast member, yesterday tweeted ‘Was watching the Olympics and saw the #HeroesReborn trailer. Time to dust off the sword?’ which received over a thousand retweets and favourites from his followers on the social media site.

Hayden Panettiere, Milo Ventimiglia, Ali Larte and Adrian Pasdar also featured in the original series, would you like to see them all make a return to star in Heroes Reborn or did their story lines drag on for you enough the first time round? Hayden Panettiere has since gone on to have a successful career post-Heroes and is currently starring in the successful ABC series Nashville, so may not even have the time to return for a guest spot.

We sincerely hope that this reworking will finally achieve what fans of the show always knew that Heroes, as a concept, was capable of. Maybe this time they’d be guaranteed more success if they could try to plan a little further in advance and avoid the nonsensical plot twists and unnecessary deaths that sadly the last attempt at the show became famous for.

The first series of Heroes felt promising and fresh, in the early days of the show fans looked forward to a long and fruitful relationship with the show.

That’s why it was even more of a letdown when over the following seasons it became apparent that the writers had absolutely no idea what the show was meant to be, or where it was heading. Heroes had all of the ingredients to be a smash hit, but something about it just felt clumsy. The villain of the first season, Sylar, played by Zachary Quinto, was sinister to the max. There was something inherently evil about Quinto’s Sylar, which just wasn’t quite matched in the following seasons. Story lines went nowhere, characters felt underdeveloped.  Nobody was surprised to learn that the plots for the coming seasons were rarely planned in advance, it was that obvious. But it was also a shame for a show with that much latent potential to fail so miserably.

With all of this said, we’re still absolutely bursting with excitement about the announcement that the show is set to return in 2015. This time round the series will feature new characters and will be renamed Heroes Reborn. However, it has been indicated that some of the original cast may also be returning to star in the rejigged series. Masi Oka, an original cast member, yesterday tweeted ‘Was watching the Olympics and saw the #HeroesReborn trailer. Time to dust off the sword?’ which received over a thousand retweets and favourites from his followers on the social media site.

Hayden Panettiere, Milo Ventimiglia, Ali Larte and Adrian Pasdar also featured in the original series, would you like to see them all make a return to star in Heroes Reborn or did their story lines drag on for you enough the first time round? Hayden Panettiere has since gone on to have a successful career post-Heroes and is currently starring in the successful ABC series Nashville, so may not even have the time to return for a guest spot.

We sincerely hope that this reworking will finally achieve what fans of the show always knew that Heroes, as a concept, was capable of. Maybe this time they’d be guaranteed more success if they could try to plan a little further in advance and avoid the nonsensical plot twists and unnecessary deaths that sadly the last attempt at the show became famous for.

'Heroes' to Return on NBC in 2015 with Miniseries 4083042 News

'Heroes' was one of the most talked dramas on television when it aired in 2006, initially being well received as an original concept, then because of the stark dip in quality, which became an in-joke for the media’s more satirical outlets.

HeroesRemember 'Heroes'? Well, It's Back.

Now, it seems, Heroes is back for more. The studio plan to bring the show back in 2015 as a miniseries - imaginatively titled: 'Heroes Reborn.' NBC aired a teaser during its Olympics coverage on Saturday, giving fans of the cult hit a real thrill.

“The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” said Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another instalment.”

Heroes, which sees a bunch of ordinary people discover they have super powers, was originally a smash hit with fans and critics alike, with high ratings and brilliant reviews. But when it returned with a second season, perceptions changed. The critics started picking out faults, and subsequent third and fourth seasons saw a drastic fall in ratings.

But NBC are clearly subscribing to the ‘any publicity is good publicity’ and think Heroes will provie successful upon a return. The original creator, Tim Kring, is back on board and ready to work on the reboot.

“We’re thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept,” added Salke. “Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.”

Heroes Reborn: NBC Bringing One Of Its Most Successful Shows Back To Life As Miniseries 4082329 News

Good news for any Heroes fans out there – NBC is reviving its hit show in miniseries form. NBC announced the news during its Olympic broadcast on Saturday.

The big question is, which of the original actors will return?

 

So far, not much has been announced about Reborn, apart from the fact that it will be happening. The return of stars like Hayden Panettiere, Zachary Quinto, Jack Coleman and Milo Ventimiglia is yet to be announced. Fingers crossed, Heroes fans. On the plus side, showrunner Tim Kring is definitely returning.

The original Heroes ran between 2006 and 2010 and spawned legions of faithful fans, but the creative team aren’t looking to the past for inspiration. Instead, the new show will feature brand new storylines and expand on the Heroes mythology. "The enormous impact Heroes had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening," NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said in a statement.
