Hayden Builds a New Home for Tony the Gorilla at Kiev Zoo

Hayden Panettiere is expecting her first child with her fiancé, Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko, and she’s already showing what a nurturer she is.

On a recent trip to the Kiev Zoo, the animal lover formed a bond with a gorilla named Tony. “I was being escorted around the backside of the monkey exhibits when there he was, a massive, furry, black creature that made even the Klitschko brothers look small!” Panettiere says in a note she posted online. “That’s when I met Tony the Gorilla. His fingers were as wide as soda cans; his biceps were each the size of my head, and when he stood up straight, I was certain he was King Kong.”

“Suddenly the most amazing thing happened, he walked over, sat down in front of me and stared into my eyes,” says Panettiere. “Looking back into his, I could see how wise, curious and deeply intelligent he was. He took one of his massive fingers, stuck it through the fence and gently, as if I were made of glass, touched my cheek, then my nose, and finally my lips. He pulled his finger back and smelled it! He did this repeatedly during my first visit with him while I fed him his favorite fruits; bananas and cherries.”

There was only one thing that troubled Panettiere about Tony – his home.

“Each time I walked away from his cage I realized how ridiculously small his enclosure was for such a large animal,” says Panettiere. “I could tell even his caretakers hated the conditions in which they were forced to confine him. There were very few toys to occupy his intelligent mind, and thick metal bars on almost all four sides; it looked like a prison cell.”

So the Nashville star rebuilt Tony’s home, providing him with much more room to roam and making space for activities and toys. “Not only did I do it for Tony, a deeply smart animal forced to only see the sky through bars for the past 16 years of his life, but for the people of Kiev who spend their hard earned money to take their families to the zoo for a great experience,” says Panettiere, who refers to Klitschko’s native Kiev as a second home to her.

And this isn’t the first time Panettiere has advocated for her non-human friends. In 2007, she joined an anti-whaling group to speak out about the mistreatment of dolphins.

“Animals have always brought me joy in my darkest hours,” she says. “Whenever I have gone through difficult times in my life, I have always turned to animals to find comfort, peace and happiness. They can be a small ray of sunshine in the darkest room. My hope is that Tony and his new habitat can bring a moment of comfort and joy to the people who visit him.

Nashville Baby Alert!

[SPOILERS] For those of you who guessed that Hayden Panettiere’s real-life pregnancy will be written into Nashville, you get three gold stars, because that’s exactly what’s happening!

E! News has confirmed that Nashville season three will feature a pregnant Juliette Barnes…and the drama just starts there.

Remember when Juliette made the poor life choice to cheat on her perfect boyfriend Avery (Jonathan Jackson) and drunkenly hook up with Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson, now a series regular), the skeezy head of Edgehill Republic, her old record label? That’s going to come back around to bite her in the butt more than you can imagine.

As if Juliette doesn’t have enough boy problems to deal with, not only did that ill-advised one night stand ruin her relationship with Avery, but it’s also going to cause her some major baby daddy drama, since she doesn’t know if the father is Avery or Jeff! Yikes.

While we can’t wait to see how Juliette handles the impending responsibilities of motherhood, we can’t help but feel bad for the poor girl. She’s never had an easy life—from her drug addict mother, to her trailer park past, to her endless career and boy troubles—but she’s always been able to claw her way to the top.

Will Juliette be able to find the joy in becoming a mother, or will she try to terminate the pregnancy to save her career and relationship? Will she finally get her happily-ever-after with Avery if the baby is his? Or in a less happier version, if the baby is Avery’s, will the southern gentleman feel obligated to marry her and raise the kid? Now that’s a wedding doomed from the start. No matter what the producers decide, the drama on Nashville is going to be a real mother this season.

Back in June, E! News confirmed Panettiere was pregnant with her and fiancé Wladimir Klitschko’s first child together. Panettiere showed off her baby bump when she hit the beach last week with her boxer beau, who recently told us, “She’s going to be more than an amazing mother.”

Nashville season three kicks off with an episode filled with live musical performances on Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 10 p.m. on ABC.

BREAKING NEWS: Hayden confirms engagement!

Hayden Panettiere has finally confirmed what we all kinda, sorta thought. Yep, she’s engaged to boxer Wladimir Klitschko.

The Nashville star made the announcement during an appearance on Wednesday’s Live With Kelly & Michael. While the 24-year-old actress came out wearing a live boa constrictor, the snake didn’t prevent cohost Kelly Ripa from noticing the rock on her hand.

“I’m sort of distracted, not just by the snake, but there’s a very large diamond ring on your ring finger,” said Ripa. “I’m not sure if you want to announce anything…Does that signify anything, is that a promise ring or something?”

A smiling Panettiere responded, “It might be… mean, I think it speaks for itself.”

Sure enough, when Ripa simply asked flat-out if she was engaged, Panettiere happily replied, “I am.”

Last month, the former Heroes star was spotted at LAX airport wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring, prompting speculation she and Klitschko were planning on tying the knot. Of course, it wasn’t the first time the couple had found themselves at the center of rampant engagement rumors.

Congrats, you two!
