Hayden Panettiere and her fiance Wladimir Klitschko are pregnant with their first baby. The couple, who announced their engagement last year, will soon welcome their child together. The 24-year-old actress and the 36-year-old athlete met at a book party back in 2009 and have been on and off since then. “I’m small, but he’s large. That’s how we met. I said, ‘You’re huge.’ He said, ‘You’re tiny’,” Hayden Panettiere said about her boyfriend on “Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday (May 28, 2014). She then joked with Ellen DeGeneres about what their future kids would look like, saying: “He’s got bowlegs. I’ve got knocked knees. They’re going to have straight legs. They’ll be normal height.”
Hayden Panettiere and her fiance Wladimir Klitschko dated for two years before breaking up in 2011. In 2013, the happy pair reunited and were ready to spend the rest of their lives with each other. While they have been dating, their height difference is often talked about, with Wladimir Klitschko standing at 6’6″ while Hayden Panettiere is just five feet tall.
