Hayden Panettiere Confirms Engagement to Giant Boxer



While holding a giant snake on Wednesday morning's “Live With Kelly & Michael,” “Nashville” star Hayden Panettiere announced she was engaged to boxer boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko.

"I'm sort of distracted, not just by the snake, but there's a very large diamond ring on your ring finger," stated host Kelly Ripa. "I'm not sure if you want to announce anything. Does that signify anything, is that a promise of something?"

"It might be … I mean, I think it speaks for itself," Panettiere responded. 

"Are you engaged?" Ripa questioned. 

"I am," Panettiere answered. 

According to reports, the 24-year-old actress first met the 37-year-old at a book party. While their relationship took a brief break, the two were spotted together by last spring.

The couple also never fails to draw attention for their looks. Panettiere is 5’2” and her beau is a whopping 6’6".
