Hayden Panettiere was her usual uncensored and quirky self in a recent interview with Glamour as she dished on her relationship with Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko, staying classy in Hollywood, and why she thinks she was born to be a mother.
Though news of Panettiere’s relationship with Klitschko broke pretty recently, the Nashville star apparently already thinks he could be the one. “It wouldn’t shock me!” she responded when asked if he could be the father of her children. Surprisingly, her own parents’ dramatic split didn’t seem to affect her outlook on love and coupling.
In 2008, Panettiere’s father was arrested for allegedly striking her mother in the face, and the two divorced shortly thereafter. Panettiere was 18 at the time, but seems to have a pragmatic understanding of the split.
“When it happened, I knew my denying it or saying it was false wasn’t going to do anything. People would just say, ‘Oh, she’s in denial.’ My parents are really good people — they just are not meant to be together.”
So is she planning on getting married young, or living large for now? She seems to just be going with the flow for the moment, but definitely wants a family some day.
“I don’t really have a plan. I’ve lived a very big life, and I don’t feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother.”
“Sometimes people speak about [having kids] like, ‘Your life ends — you’re never going to be able to do anything again!’ And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’ 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. I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids.”
Lastly, how did Panettiere meet her new beau? He’s actually been around for quite a while …
“In this industry you’ve got little individual tables of actors, singers, rap stars, this, that, the other. But it’s a big industry that also encompasses anyone in the public eye. An acquaintance of ours did a coffee-table book, and the proceeds went to genocide prevention. We met at the party for the launch of the book; we’ve been friends for five years — we’ve never not been close.”
