We have added x more outtakes from the People Magazine photoshoot. Also a lovely pic of Haydens mom, Leslie with baby Kaya, plus a couple of personal candids from New Years Eve.
Hayden Panettiere just enjoyed her first night of uninterrupted sleep since the Dec. 9 birth of her daughter, Kaya Evdokia, with her fiancé, Wladimir Klitschko — courtesy of her future mother-in-law.
“Wlad’s mom was desperate to take the baby for a night,” the Nashville star, 25, tells PEOPLE. “She looks like she didn’t get much sleep, but I feel well-rested!”
Adjusting to life as a parent has been “such a surreal experience and so out of body,” for Panettiere and her heavyweight professional boxer beau, 38. “You’re suddenly looking at this little thing like, ‘Oh, that was you in my belly this whole time,’” she says. “[We’re] just getting to know her.”
Recovering from the labor and delivery has also been a bit of a challenge. “I’m limping around. I’m still trying to figure out what [pregnancy] has done to my body, how it’s changed it. What’s temporary and what’s permanent,” Panettiere tells PEOPLE with a laugh, adding that she was “grateful” for her epidural.
“I feel like an 80-year-old woman trying to go down the stairs, you know — please tell me this is temporary! But I know some things will never be the same again.”
So far, little Kaya has been an easy baby despite a few restless nights and what the nursing mom describes as an “insatiable appetite.”
“She’s really so sweet,” Panettiere says. “I’m sure that’s the way it’s meant to be, because when they are putting you through the wringer you’re like, ‘You are so lucky you’re cute!’”

Congratulations Hayden & Wladimir! Hayden gave birth to their first child on Tuesday 9th December 2014.
Daughter Kaya Evdokia Klitschko weighed in at 7 lbs., 14 oz., and measured 20 inches.
“We are over the moon and madly in love!” the proud new parents tell PEOPLE.
We have added x screencaps of Hayden in Nashville s03e10 First to Have a Second Chance to the image gallery. It was a brilliant mid-season finale but we now have to wait until (Jan 7th 2015 according to IMDB) but officially we are pretty sure Season 3 returns February 4th, on ABC.
Baby Update: We hear Hayden may have given birth to he daughter “Kaya” on Tuesday (TBC!)
We have added a scan of Hayden from NZ Magazine Cleo to the gallery plus some photos of Hayden who is now heavily pregnant and in her final weeks on holiday in Hawaii over the weekend (thanks to PopSugar for the exclusive pictures). Hayden wore a flirty two-piece to dip in the water and lounge poolside at her hotel with a friend.
Wladimir squares off with mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev (20-0, 11 KOs) on Saturday at the O2 World arena in Hamburg, Germany, in the first fight of a new three-fight deal with HBO. As Klitschko (62-3, 53 KOs) prepares for the fight he undoubtedly will have something else on his mind – the impending birth of his first child, a daughter, with actress and long-time partner Hayden Panettiere.
“She is due about two weeks after the fight,” Klitschko told ESPN during a recent interview. “Hopefully, the baby does not come before the fight. I hope things go well. It’s been a challenging time because I have obligations.”
While Panettiere is in the United States for the final weeks of her pregnancy, Klitschko was in training in the Austrian mountains before breaking camp and heading to Hamburg for the fight this week, including for a news conference on Monday.
“I will be with her after the fight,” said Klitschko, who rarely discusses his personal life. “We are having a girl and it’s very exciting. It’s my first child. It’s our first child. This is a child we both wanted and we are both looking forward to becoming parents. This child is the fruit of our love.”
Panettiere, 25, has been a fixture at ringside for numerous Klitschko fights but she won’t be there on Saturday.
“She is used to being at my fights so its difficult for her not to be able to be in the arena for this one,” Klitschko, 38, said. “After my [late] father she is my biggest fan. It’s definitely tough for her not to be there and it is tough for me not being with her right now, but that’s life. I do look forward to being with her after the fight for the birth of our daughter.”
