Hayden Panettiere opens up about Wladimir Klitschko, talks marriage and kids
Hayden Panettiere opened up in a recent interview about her romance with rumored fiance Wladimir Klitschko, marriage and having children.
While the 23-year-old "Nashville" star does not confirm rumors that she is engaged, she does confirm that she and Klitschko are dating again after initially calling it quits in May 2011.
In an interview with Glamour for the magazine's May 2013 issue, where she appears on the cover, Panettiere was asked if she and Klitschko were back together and she replied with a smile and said, "I think it's pretty obvious. I'm not going to deny it."
She went on to describe the rekindled relationship as "the 2.0 version."
"I've always had great relationships and stayed really good friends with the guys I've dated," she added. "It blows my mind sometimes that us getting together has gotten so much attention. It's like, Really? This is breaking news?"
Panettiere was also asked about how celebrities in Hollywood are getting married younger and what her timing for marriage might be.
"I don't really have a plan. 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 told 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?'"
"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," she added. "I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids."
Panettiere and 37-year-old Klitschko, a Ukrainian boxing champion, first started dating in 2010 and in her Glamour interview, she revealed the two met at a launch party of a coffee-table book written by a mutual friend of theirs. The couple announced in May 2011 that they had broken up, citing the difficulties in maintaining a long-distance relationship. They were seen together in public again in January and last month, they were photographed kissing at a Miami Heat basketball game .
The actress has been acting since she was a child and is known for her role in the TV show "Heroes" and currently stars on the ABC series "Nashville." She has also had roles in "Scream 4," "Ally McBeal," "Remember the Titians," "One Life to Live" and "Guiding Light."
