Hayden Panettiere is posting much more frequently on Twitter about her baby, Kaya, and her family. That’s probably because she just faced some drama after appearing in New York without her wedding ring.
The Nashville star has been away from her family and Hollywood for a while to receive treatment for her postpartum depression. This is the second time that she has gone into rehab to deal with this health issue.
The media and the public applauded her when she did not hide her ailment and instead chose to raise awareness of this widespread health concern of new mothers.
“The postpartum depression I have been experiencing has impacted every aspect of my life,” she wrote on her Twitter. “Rather than stay stuck due to unhealthy coping mechanisms I have chosen to take time to reflect holistically on my health and life. Wish me luck!”
But her first appearance in public was a little bit startling. Hayden Panettiere was seen in New York alone without her husband, Wladimir Klitschko, without her baby girl, Kaya, and certainly without her wedding ring.
“Hayden Panettiere was spotted in NYC on Monday, July 4, almost two months after she went to rehab to seek treatment a second time for postpartum depression,” reports Us Weekly. “The Nashville actress, 26, who has a daughter, Kaya, 19 months, with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko, was seen sitting on a stoop, smoking a cigarette and reading the book Underboss: Sammy the Bull Gravano’s Story of Life in the Mafia. Panettiere was dressed in a plaid shirt, blue tights and Uggs, but was not wearing her engagement ring.”
Since then, the Nashville star did the damage control by posting a sweet picture of her young family on her Twitter, saying that missing wedding ring does not mean an automatic divorce.
“Although the couple has faced their ups and downs in the past, and despite the recent speculation, they are doing just fine, at least according to a sweet snap posted by Panettiere on Thursday,” reports the Huffington Post. “In the black-and-white picture, Panettiere and Klitschko pose with almost 2-year-old Kaya. The ‘Nashville’ actress writes, ‘Missing rings don’t mean the end of relationships. Blessed to be with my beautiful family.'”
But this tweet did not go so far as to declare love for her husband or her baby, which made the public still a little wary of the current relationship status between Wladimir and Hayden.
Since then, the 26-year-old mother has made a habit of posting about her family on Twitter in hopes of keeping divorce rumors at bay. She made a sweet post about her baby girl, showing the hard side of being a mother as well as the challenges she faces battling postpartum depression.
After the picture of her baby, she also posted about her younger brother, who is now breaking into the Hollywood industry.
Having one’s family near as one is working through some rough times in life must feel very nice and supportive!
And her career isn’t looking bad either. Last month, the entire cast and crew of Nashville became unemployed when their show was not renewed. But the series was picked up by another network, which means that they get to continue making a show that matters to them.
“Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere and seven other cast members have signed new deals to return for the country music drama’s upcoming fifth season,” reports the Hollywood Reporter. “The other returning series regulars include Charles Esten, Sam Palladio, Jonathan Jackson, Clare Bowen, Lennon Stella, Maisy Stella and Chris Carmack. The nine-person ensemble has signed on for 22 new episodes, which will debut on CMT after four seasons on ABC.”
