Hayden Panettiere is mum to 2 year old daughter Kaya and in a brand new interview with Parade magazine the actress opens up about pregnancy and motherhood.
“I went through a pregnancy and I found out who my true friends were, the ones that were going to stick around and support me,” the actress said. “I’ll just say the outcome was slim pickins! My life became all about staying healthy, getting good sleep, finding parks and nature.”
Panettiere shares 2 year old Kaya Evdokia Klitschko with Ukranian boxer Wladimir Klitschko who she’s been with since 2013. Although it’s unclear whether the couple are still engaged they do look to still be together.
The 27 year old actress was public about her struggle with postpartum depression, entering a treatment facility in October 2015. Klitschko stood by her side throughout the whole time she was seeking help. In fact this past July, Panettiere dispelled rumors that she Klitschko had split by posting a family photo to Twitter.
“Missing rings don’t mean the end of relationships. Blessed to be with my beautiful family,” she wrote on Twitter.

She also traveled with Klitschko to Jerusalem. “Standing on the original stones… #Jerusalem @Klitschko,” she tweeted alongside a picture of her and her fiancé in Israel.

Panettiere is still focusing on her role in Nashville, which was picked up by CMT after originally being cancelled by ABC. The actress says that despite her past as a solo recording artist, she doesn’t have plans to return to the studio outside of the show.
“Juggling my workload and being a mum right now is plenty,” she said. “I’ve figured out my own limits over the years, and music is a bridge that I might want to cross when I can truly dedicate myself to it. I can’t say that anything is typical or ‘the norm’ about any day of the week now that I’m the mom of a 2-year-old,” she said. “She gets her hands in just about everything, and my biggest job at the moment is keeping her alive!”
