Hayden Panettiere: My baby will be like her dad!


The Heroes star and her boxing champ fiancé Wladimir Klitschko are currently expecting a little girl. And the actress doesn’t think she will have much in her common with her mother. “She will definitely be a clone of her father,” the 25-year-old smiled to German magazine TV Movie. “I’m just the incubator!”

Hayden usually supports her beau when he has a big fight. But because she is so far along, she won’t be there for his next match in Hamburg, Germany, on November 15.

“I can’t fly such long distances anymore,” she said.

And while she’s taking it easy for now, Hayden doesn’t expect to take too long to get back to work. Currently, she plays Juliette Barnes in musical country drama Nashville.

“I’m due at the beginning of December. If all goes to plan, I’ll start shooting again in February,” she smiled.

And she hopes to be back to cheering on Wladimir (38) as soon as possible. While she was never bothered with boxing before, her partner has changed everything.

“I used to be really puzzled by people who enjoyed watching it,” she said of the sport. “But as soon as I met Wladimir, I became interested.”

Hayden adds she’s always there to comfort him after a bad match, too, calling him very “self-critical”.

It sounds like she’ll be just as supportive with her baby.

"I'm so ready to hold my baby girl - I'm going to be a very hands-on mum," she told the US edition of Hello! magazine.

"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.”
