Is Hayden Panettiere engaged to Wladimir Klitschko?
Is Hayden Panettiere engaged? Although the “Nashville” star hasn’t publicly announced that she’s betrothed to Ukrainian boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko, she seems to be letting her jewelry speak for her.
E! Online reported that Panettiere, 23, flashed an engagement ring while on vacation in Miami last weekend with her girlfriends and 37-year-old beau. The former Palisades resident was spotted on the beach wearing a diamond ring, and one of her friends also posted a photo on Instagram showing Panettiere embracing Klitschko while sporting the ring. The actress, however, wore the ring on her right hand, not her left, which is the traditional place to wear an engagement ring.
Last week, Us Weekly reported that the couple were secretly engaged and that a source said they were planning a summer wedding. Engaged or not, the two make a striking pair, as Panettiere is a petite 5 feet 2 and her alleged fiance is 6 feet 6.
The two first began dating in 2009 but broke up two years later. The actress then dated Jets player Scotty McKnight before splitting with him late last year. Panettiere reconnected with Klitschko in January.
