People— Hayden Panettiere glowed on the Emmys red carpet Monday as she showed off her growing baby bump in a plunging silver Lorena Sarbu gown — and revealed the sex of her baby!
“I can’t wait for her to come out,” the Nashville star slipped in while speaking to Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet, causing the host to exclaim, “It’s a girl?!”
“Yes, it’s a little girl. I have to shop,” Panettiere, 25, joked. “I want to go shopping, I want to paint the room … I’m working with my amazing interior decorator, Ben Vandiver, who did my house in Nashville. He’s trying to do something that she can grow up in and you don’t have to change everything.”
As far as choosing a name for her daughter, Panettiere explains that she and fiancé Wladimir Klitschko have to take a few extras into consideration. “We have to make sure that it is American and Ukrainian all at the same time,” she says. “We’re still working on it but we have some options.”
For now, she’s focusing on her outfit. “I love [Lorena] and she did such a fabulous job — the only thing that’s difficult, honestly, is making sure everything is tucked in away and in there, and then the shoes. Walking around all night in the heels — my feet get sore when I’m wearing no shoes. My size 5 feet have never felt this amount of weight on top of them!”
And what’s the expectant actress craving? “[Pregnancy] probably just accentuated my craving for chicken noodle soup,” she shares. “I’ve always been a chicken noodle soup lover.”
Hayden is the cover girl for the April/May issue of Brides Magazine. Inside she talks about her relationship and impending wedding to Wladimir Klitschko. Scans have been added to the gallery thanks to GotCeleb.Com.
Take note: Hayden Panettiere is the real deal. Even while playing bad girl Juliette Barnes on the hit TV show Nashville, her down-to-earth personality shines through. Born in New York, the 24-year-old feels perfectly at home in the South—so much so that she and her fiancé, heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko, decided to put down roots and buy a house in Nashville this year. “Even if something happens to the show,” she says, “I know this is a place I want to call home.”
SL: You always look great on and off the screen. How would you describe your personal style?
HP: In my day-to-day [life], I’m more of a tomboy. Over time I’ve had to find the chic in that. I love to be comfortable, but ultimately it depends on my mood. I can be dark and edgy, but other times I like bright and flowery.
SL: Who are some of your favorite designers?
HP: I love Tom Ford, Stella McCartney, Balmain, and Marchesa. I wore a great black-and-white Tom Ford dress to this year’s Golden Globes.
SL: How well do you relate to your character on the show?
HP: While my character, Juliette, is a lot more glam than I am—I like to be more casual—I do enjoy getting dolled up. I love Juliette’s shoe collection! We’re definitely the same in that department.
SL: What do you think sets Southern style apart from other areas?
HP: It’s a lot more laid-back, which suits me better. In L.A. and New York you go out to lunch and everyone is wearing high heels. In Nashville if I see someone wearing heels, I get the sense they might not be from around here.
SL: How does an iconic place like the Ryman reflect the town’s style?
HP: You get everything walking through that door. When you look at the walls and the display boxes, you find that you have everything there—from the beautiful gowns country stars have worn to cowboy hats and even some rock ‘n’ roll stuff. The city, which is very influenced by music, has become very eclectic. It’s not just country anymore.
SL: You’ve been in the industry since age 5—what beauty secrets have you picked up from makeup artists on set?
HP: Less is more. Don’t hide behind a lot of makeup. I always have Neutrogena’s makeup remover wipes on me. It is so important to let your skin breathe.
SL: What about the weather down here? Have you found any styling tricks for dealing with heat and humidity?
HP: That’s one of the toughest things to adapt to. I’ve found it helps to braid my hair when it’s wet, rather than letting it air-dry. It tames the frizz; otherwise, in the summer I look like a Pomeranian!
SL: You portray a strong Southern woman so well. Was it hard for you to come into that role not being from the South?
HP: My mom is from Kentucky and my grandmother is from Corpus Christi, so I had a better understanding of the South than the average person moving from New York. At my core, this is the kind of person I am and want to be. I like being in a place where people appreciate the little things and don’t need a lot of stuff to be happy. You can put a group of Southerners in any scenario and they’ll have a good time.
SL: You seem to have a lot of fun playing a country star on the show. Are you also a fan?
HP: My parents love country music, so I listened to a lot of it growing up. Alison Krauss’ ‘The Boy Who Wouldn’t Hoe Corn’ is still one of my favorite songs of all time. And Faith Hill is an icon.
SL: Tell us about your decision to plant roots in Nashville.
HP: The people here are amazing. Living in Nashville gives me a sense of normalcy that I wasn’t sure I was ever going to get back in my life. When I first got here, all my defenses were still up, and I was waiting for that world to suddenly creep back in. When it didn’t, I realized that I can live a normal life here with people who don’t judge you based on what you do or who you are in the public eye.
SL: Where do you like to shop in town?
HP: Two Old Hippies is an awesome store downtown with a wide range of stuff from gadgets to fun books.
SL: What is your favorite Southern expression?
HP: ‘Bless her heart.’ There is so much context there—so much more is said with those three words.

Hayden Panettiere stopped by The Graham Norton show yesterday and showed off her dance moves during Pharrell and Robin Thicke’s performance of “Blurred Lines.”
The Nashville star reluctantly joined in on the fun after watching the two singers sing their hit single—and she did not disappoint with her dance moves!
She joked on Twitter, “Only @Pharrell could get my butt on stage…I guess they needed some height contrast,” as she posted a pic of her movin’ and groovin’ next to two tall models.
Panettiere added, “Attempting to drop it like it’s hot…emphasis on “Attempting.”
While wearing sexy leather pants, a white halter top and sky-high red ankle boots, the former Heroes hottie brought the house down.
Girl, don’t be so modest…you’re working it!

I have added scans from Hayden’s recent cover issue of Glamour, be sure to pick up your copy to support Hayden! I also added a scan from the most recent issue of gossip magazine Us Weekly.
On the meaning of her tattoo…
“It’s Italian: Vivere senza rimpianti. When I was younger, I was upset, and my dad said he wanted to show me something. He slammed one door of the bathroom, and the closet door popped open—it was a trick with the air. He said, ‘Whenever one door closes, another one always opens.’ So my tattoo means ‘Live without regrets.’ It’s not that you don’t regret things in life, but you at least try to learn from them. It’s misspelled too [accidentally, as rimipianti]—so I literally have to live by that advice!”
On if being on Nashville and singing is giving her a second chance at a music career…
“I don’t look at it as a second chance; I look at it as where I’m supposed to be. Even if I’m not perfect at it, even if my voice takes work, this is where my heart is. People used to ask me, ‘What kind of music do you like?’ I’d say, ‘Country.’ Then they’d go, ‘But you’re from New York.’ I thought people would think I was trying to be something I’m not. But the industry of country music is unbelievably accepting. The fans are unreal. There’s no judgment; it’s just, Let’s all get together in a massive backyard and have a barbecue and drink and have fun.”
On coming up in the business with a lot of other young stars…
“I came up in the Messy Generation. The generation of the disaster child.”
On staying grounded despite coming up in what she calls “the Messy Generation” in Hollywood…
“It’s not that I didn’t go to clubs, have my picture taken. I was 16 years old. I was experimenting just like any kid. But I had friends and family around me to yank me back when I was heading in the wrong direction. Every turn that I made, somebody was waiting for me to fall on my face and catch it on film. The thing that really saved me was that I still had that healthy fear of my parents—I still had a midnight curfew at 18!”
On how she feels about young girls looking up to her…
“I never put my name in the ballot box and said, ‘Hey, I want you to vote me as your teen leader and icon and your Miss Perfect.’ I will never say that I’m perfect; I will never pretend to be perfect. That’s just unrealistic. You’re kind of unexpectedly put in this position of becoming a role model; that’s not something you choose.”
