Did you hear about the "Nasvhille" star Hayden Panettiere ? Well, she is engaged to the boxer Wladimir Klitschko which she announced Wednesday on "Live With Kelly & Michael."
Here's how she announced it, when she was holding a snake, co-host Kelly Ripa remarked, "I'm sort of distracted, not just by the snake, but there's a very large diamond ring on your ring finger. ... I'm not sure if you want to announce anything. ... Does that signify anything, is that a promise of something? Panettiere responded, "It might be. ... I mean, I think it speaks for itself." Then, when Ripa asked directly, "Are you engaged?" and Panettiere said, "I am," and later added that she hadn't picked a date, given her schedule.
Also, a rep of the star confirmed the news to ABC News as well.
Panettiere, 24, first met Klitschko, 37, in 2009 at a book party, and although they split for a time, they were back together by last spring.
The pair, who split in June 2011 after two years of dating, were spotted kissing at the Miami Heat versus Charlotte Bobcats game in Miami Sunday.
They were spotted partying at nightclub Zuma in Miami Jan. 8 and a few days later the Ukrainian boxer was seen dropping the “Nashville” actress off at the airport. But Panettiere insisted to TMZ at the time that the pair were just “just good buddies.”
"It's like the 2.0 version," she told Glamour magazine of their romance this time around.
