“Im so ready to hold my baby girl”

In a new interview with Hello! magazine, the actress is expressing plenty of enthusiasm for her upcoming arrival.

“I’m so ready to hold my baby girl—I’m going to be a very hands on mom,” she told the publication. “I’m thrilled that I am having a girl first because I feel like I know a lot about raising a strong woman. I feel very empowered myself and I think my daughter will, too.”

Panettiere, who recently showed off her baby bump in a revealing Halloween costume, is also going where not many celebs go. She’s talking about her weight gain while expecting.

“I’m 5 feet, 2 inches and I started out at 106 pounds and guess how much I weight now? Around 145 pounds,” she revealed. “And the worst part is that my feet are still size five and they’re going, ‘What’s going on with all this weight?’ They’re about to snap from underneath me with the strain.”

The actress believes much of the pounds can be attributed to water weight and her past experience of being a gymnast.

“I’m still quite muscular, so if you’re running around carrying 40 pounds of extra weight, you’re going to build extra muscle,” she explained.

No matter what size she is, Panettiere can count on both her mom and her man for much-needed support. When asked about Klitschko, the 25-year-old revealed, “He’s such a resilient guy. He’s so calm and patient. I have never even heard this man raise a voice.”

And although fans are still eagerly waiting for that beautiful wedding, Panettiere makes it clear that we will have to wait until the baby weight comes off.

“I’ll tell you one thing for sure: I am not walking down the aisle 40 pounds heavier than usual in a wedding dress with a huge pregnancy belly stitched in,” she said. “Not happening.”

Let’s be honest, she would still look absolutely pretty.

‘Nashville’ Cast Dish on Season 3, Working With Pregnant Hayden Panettiere

The cast of ‘Nashville‘ are (mostly) protecting the details of who Juliette’s baby daddy is, but they’re happy to talk about working alongside a very pregnant Hayden Panettiere.

Actor Jonathan Jackson (Avery Barkley) tells Taste of Country that Panettiere has always been professional, dedicated and gifted, and that hasn’t changed since she started growing a bun in her oven.

“The only thing that’s changed is she has to lay down more often. Her feet are hurting,” he says. “She brings it every day, so we have a good time working together.”

Panettiere is due to deliver a baby girl in December.

That Jackson and Panettiere are working together could be a clue. Jackson admits he knows some of the details about how the baby drama will play out after Season 3 begins Wednesday (Sept. 24) at 10PM ET on ABC. They’ve filmed about seven episodes so far, but not every cast member has worked with the pregnant star. Sam Palladio (Gunnar Scott) hasn’t worked with her yet. Chaley Rose (Zoey Dalton) was very careful not to say anything about the situation, although she did reveal what’s in store for her character.

“She does have some anxiety about Gunnar and Scarlett,” she says, “and this new girl that comes along. Gunnar’s high school sweetheart.”

About that new girl: Palladio says fans are really going to love that storyline. Alexa Vega will play Kiley, a single mother who is rumored to be raising Gunnar’s son.

“I think viewers are going to be very excited when his old girlfriend comes back,” Palladio reveals. “It opens up a lot of his past. It brings up a lot of emotional connection to his family and the loss that he’s had through losing his brother, and so we start to see some heart to Gunnar and some of his fragility and some of how his childhood shaped who he is. And this girl was integral to that.”

Jackson’s Avery Barkley or label executive Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson) are the two most likely candidates to be Juliette’s baby’s father. However, one can never rule out a twist on a show like ‘Nashville.’ Jackson would only say that the first few episodes are very trying for his character. He’s apparently “spiraling” after learning Juliette cheated on him.

“The arc of Season 2 was great, taking Avery from sort of a narcissistic guy who learns some humility and sort of became more mature,” he shares. “But I think the betrayal of Juliette is sort of challenging that.”

All three actors talked after performing on the Grand Ole Opry stage on Tuesday night. Jackson’s performance was remarkable because he chose a U2 song. He’s a rock fan mostly, he says, although he grew up on a steady diet of country music. Rose also grew up country, while Palladio says he didn’t know what the Opry was growing up in England. He’s happy to be getting a quick lesson, as he lives and works in Music City.

All performers at the event were part of the 25th Anniversary of Country Cares for St. Jude celebration. A portion of ticket proceeds went directly to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Pregnant Hayden Panettiere Spotted at LAX Airport

Mumma to be Hayden Panettiere was spotted arriving at LAX airport over the weekend dressed in a casual and comfy ensemble. She donned a pair of leggings, knee-high brown boots, a silk blouse and a chic Valentino bag for her travel day. The expectant star recently revealed to E! News at the 2014 Emmy Awards that she was getting ready to give birth to a baby girl.

Hayden Pregnant with Baby Girl

It’s a girl for Hayden Panettiere and her fiancé Wladimir Klitschko! The 25-year-old “Nashville” star proudly showed off her growing baby bump in a sequined Lorena Sarbu gown at the 2014 Emmys on Monday, Aug. 25.

“I can’t wait for her to come out,” Panettiere told Giuliana Rancic, causing the E! Newshost to exclaim, “It’s a girl?!”

“Yes, it’s a little girl. I have to shop,” Panetriere added. “I want to go shopping, I want to paint the room… I’m working with my amazing interior decorator, Ben Vandiver, who did my house in Nashville. He’s trying to do something that she can grow up in and you don’t have to change everything.”

The actress said she and her fiancé have not decided on a name for their daughter yet because they “have to make sure that it is American and Ukrainian all at the same time.”

“We’re still working on it but we have some options,” she added.

Panettiere told Rancic that pregnancy cravings have been fairly normal even though she craves chicken noodle soup a bit more than usual.

“[Pregnancy] probably just accentuated my craving for chicken noodle soup,” Panettiere said. “I’ve always been a chicken noodle soup lover.”

Previously Klitschko chatted with E! News about becoming a father and said that he’s excited to meet the baby.

“When you’re going to become a father or a parent, your life is going to change,” he said. “So I look forward to having my life change for the good and I heard, just recently, somebody said, ‘You don’t know what love is until you have your first baby, then you know what love is.’ So I think I know what love is, but I look forward to getting more knowledgeable about that.”

The Ukrainian boxer also told E! that he had no doubts that Panettiere would make an excellent mother.

“She’s an amazing person and I’m more than sure that she’s going to be an amazing mom. Her wish to become a mother and have a child [was something] she’s been mentioning and telling me about a lot. You know, every dream will eventually come true and she’s going to be more than an amazing mother.”

66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

Pregnant Hayden Panettiere cradled her prominent bump in a glittering Lorena Sarbu gown at the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Monday. The Nashville actress – who turned 25 last Thursday – took the plunge in the pink-and-silver sequin maternity frock, which would not look out of place on her country-themed ABC series.

The two-time Golden Globe nominee relied on her glam squad – stylist Micaela Erlanger, make-up artist Amy Oresman, and hair by Clyde Haygood. Panettiere – who confirmed her pregnancy in June – definitely had that glow and looked elegant with a grecian updo.

‘I’m thrilled! I can’t wait for her to come out!’ Hayden told Giuliana Rancic during the official E! News pre-show.

Hayden and her baby bump in bikini as she holidays with Wladimir Klitschko in Miami

She kept her baby bump under wraps beneath a black one-piece swimsuit when she holidayed in June. But pregnant Hayden Panettiere was proud of her burgeoning belly on Friday, choosing to rock a two-piece swimsuit as she soaked up the sun with her boxer fiance Wladimir Klitschko in Miami, Florida. The 24-year-old actress looked chic in a blue and white striped bikini with a halter style top and ruffled bottoms.

And though they were on holiday, the Heroes star hinted that a new project is in the works. ‘Excited for u to see what I have in store with my @Neutrogena family! Stay tuned… xo,’ the brand ambassador tweeted on Saturday.
It was reported in May that Hayden and Wladimir were expecting their first child together.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: ‘Hayden is totally pregnant!’ The Heroes star previously admitted she was keen to start a family and felt like she was ‘born’ to be a mother. She told Glamour magazine: ‘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.’
