Actress Hayden Panettiere is speaking about her struggle with postpartum depression following the birth of her first child, Kaya, to partner Wladimir Klitschko in December of 2014. 

Speaking to Yahoo! Style, the Nashville star revealed how scary to illness is. 

"If you think for one second that a mother wants to feel that way toward her child, you’re outta your mind.

"It is one of the most debilitating, scary, guilty feelings that you can ever feel.

"That a mother would not be able to connect with their child, would not be able to get a grip, or would not know what’s going on, for anybody to say that it’s false or created by us, you must have your head examined."

The 26-year-old plays top country singer Juliette Barnes on the hit ABC show Nashville with her own character coincidentally suffering the same illness after having a child. 

"It’s definitely interesting how much it has mirrored my life," she said on playing the part. 

"The way I do things is to pull from my own personal experience and sometimes even turn myself into what I’m portraying so that I can pull from my life and step into that person’s shoes by being able to relate."

The actress also revealed why she is speaking about her experience now. 

"The more open I was, the more acceptance I got from people. I got so much support and so much love. I was floored.

"I feel much more exposed, yes, but in a great way."



Actress Hayden Panettiere has checked into a treatment facility for postnatal depression, her rep confirmed last night.

The Nashville star is "voluntarily seeking professional help at a treatment center as she is currently battling postpartum depression," according to a statement given to Us Weekly.

"She asks that the media respect her privacy during this time."

The 26-year-old, who is engaged to boxer Wladimir Klitschko, gave birth to her first daughter Kaya in December 2014.

Hayden recently spoke out about her experience with postnatal depression, in an attempt to reassure other women that they were not "alone or crazy." 

She added that there was a lot of fear and confusion surrounding the condition.

"It’s something that’s completely uncontrollable. It’s really painful and it’s really scary and women need a lot of support,” she said during a TV appearance last month.

Hayden also emphasised that the experience of postnatal depression can vary for different people.

"When [you’re told] about postpartum depression you think it’s ‘I feel negative feelings towards my child, I want to injure or hurt my child.' I’ve never, ever had those feelings," she said.

"Some women do. But you don’t realise how broad of a spectrum you can really experience that on."

Just four days ago, Hayden tweeted a positive message to fans, calling her daughter a "blessing" and saying she finally felt like she was "coming back in to my own body."

Wishing Hayden all the best with her treatment.

She wrote: “I suffered a bit of postpartum depression. You’re not alone or crazy, ladies!”

On a recent television appearance the Nashville star opened up about her experience and stressed that she wants women to know “that they’re not alone.”

“It’s something that’s completely uncontrollable. It’s really painful and it’s really scary and women need a lot of support,” she added.

Hayden said that she and her character on Nashville, Juliette now have a shared experience as they both have experienced depression.

She went on to praise women for being able to do “something that no man can do on this planet,” while adding that her husband, Wladimir Klitschko, 39, would love to go through it.

“When I was pregnant, he would do this thing where he would suck in his stomach and then I would put my stomach to his so that he could feel when she was moving, almost like she was in his stomach,” she explained.

The two welcomed their baby girl in December 2014 and over the summer took a family holiday to France, Germany and Wladimir’s native Ukraine.

While Hayden says that she’s always wanted four kids, she added that she’s not quite ready to go through another pregnancy just yet.

“I always said four, but I’m not gonna speak too soon. One at a time.” 



For anyone waiting for Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klistchko to walk down the aisle, you might be waiting a while.

The couple are just too busy at the moment to put time towards a wedding. 

Both are tied up with their careers and hectic schedules and have to put time towards parenthood. 

Hayden gave birth to daughter Kaya five months ago.

"I have all the faith in the world in him, and in fact, I think being a father has made him even more aggressive and dangerous. He's a papa bear!" says Hayden about her boxer fiance.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Wladimir seems to be content with his family and doesn't need a wedding to prove it.

"Now is for now — when people get married there are different things they promise to each other and I understand the promising part, but I think [having] children is something that connects you until the end of your days no matter what," he said.

He went on: "And I think that, Kaya, our daughter, has connected us forever. And that's the most amazing thing. Everything else is coming, it's something that needs to be planned … but as I said, the connection with the child is better than any marriage!"


We have to agree with him on this one, still hoping for a wedding soon though. 



Hayden Panettiere has finally admitted that she is pregnant!

The actress has been very tight lipped on the subject since speculation began, although her visible bump had given her away some time ago.

Now it seems as if the star is finally ready to reveal to the world that she is expecting her first child – and what better way to do it than with an ice bucket challenge?!

Hayden’s ice bucket challenge was shared on Twitter and Instagram by her friend, Derek Hough who wrote: “Couldn’t figure out hoe to post it on @haydenpanettier twitter so I’m posting it for her #als #icebucketchallenge (Hayden shortly went into labour after this) Jus kiddin.”

Hmm, judging by Derek’s joke, the actress must be due sometime soon – how exciting!

Hayden also confirmed the news herself in the video, saying among the names she nominates: “my unborn child” before being doused in ice cold water.

This will be the first child for Hayden and her partner, Wladimir Klitschko, who became engaged in October of last year. 

Congratulations to the happy couple on this news, we're sure they are super excited about their growing family! 

Today is also the actress' 25th birthday so we hope she is being spoilt rotten! Happy Birthday Hayden! 



Yay! There’s exciting baby news this morning as it has been announced that actress Hayden Panettiere is expecting her first baby with fiancé, Wladimir Klitschko!

The couple began dating back in 2009 but split in 2011 before reuniting and becoming engaged in 2013.

The Nashville star had previously spoken of her desire to start a family back 2013 in an interview with Glamour: “I’ve lead a very big life, and I don’t feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother … 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.”

Congratulations to the happy couple on their exciting baby news!




With proposals, wardrobe malfunctions, more wardrobe malfunctions and now a near-death experience, Monday’s Met Ball must be the most dramatic one in the history of the event.

Ok, so ‘near-death experience’ is a bit of an exaggeration, but when Hayden Panettiere fell on the red carpet stairs, things could have been a lot worse.

The Nashville actress caught her foot on the skirt of her beautiful Dennis Basso gown as she tried to walk down the stairs and slipped.

Thankfully Hayden was fine and quickly got back up, taking it all in good humour.

We knew Jennifer Lawrence was a trendsetter, but this is just ridiculous.




Hayden Panettiere has revealed that she maybe forced to put her wedding plans on hold, as a result of the political problems in Ukraine.

“Everything that’s happening in Ukraine definitely put a hold on things. But we have time,”

The actress announced her engagement to the boxer Wladimer Klitschko in October 2013.

Despite the political problems in Ukraine preventing her booking a wedding date, Hayden says she’s ok with waiting.

“It means a lot when you experience life with someone, then you experience life without him and decide that you don’t want to live without him.”



Bring It On: All or Nothing actress Hayden Panettiere, who is currently starring in ABC’s Nashville, has dished on her recent engagement.

Speaking to wedding magazine, Brides, Hayden reveals that the proposal was “simple, genuine and very sweet”.

The actress met her fiance, boxer Wladimir Klitschko, at a charity event, and describes their first interaction in the interview: “I said ‘your huge’ and he said ‘you’re tiny’! And that was that.”

While she’s being coy about the details, Hayden can’t wait to get hitched and settle into family life: “I’ve always wanted a family. You search and search and search for it, and when it actually happens, I feel like it will give me a sense of calm.”

Congrats to the two of them!
