Hayden Panettiere and fiancé Wladimir Klitschko are expecting their first child, a source told US Weekly.

This news does not come as a huge shock. The 24 year-old has been open about her desire to have kids, saying in a 2013 interview that she “was born to be a mother.” Panettiere gabbed that “motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there’s nothing that I feel like I can’t accomplish while having children in my life.”
