Hayden Panettiere has been spotted out again in New York, according to reports. However, her baby and her husband, Wladimir Klitschko, was absent again as the Nashville star took a casual stroll through the streets of New York City.
The last time Hayden Panettiere was seen without her baby and husband was also in New York, when she stepped out without her engagement ring. This time, the actress was accompanied by her father, who seemed to be eager to protect her from the rumor mill.
“The 26-year-old mother of one was spotted out in New York City on Wednesday looking chic as she strolled through the city in jeans, a t-shirt, and floral kimono,” reports People Magazine. “Panettiere was accompanied by her father as the pair enjoyed an outing.”
“She is trying to take care of herself. She wanted to get herself healthy again,” the insider said. “The postpartum has been really scary for everybody, but she’s taking care of it. She’s taking care of herself.”
The good thing is that Nashville actress has been actively seeking treatment for her postpartum depression. She even made it very public on Twitter when she said she was going in for another round of treatments.
“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!”
Hayden has expressed before that she hesitated a lot before coming out fully with the fact that she suffered from postpartum depression.
“I was always so terrified that people weren’t going to accept me,” the 26-year-old actress said in the interview with Yahoo! Style. “I finally just went, I’m tired of living afraid. I’m tired of living in fear of what people are going to think, so, you know, I’m just going to put it all out there on the table and I’m not going to worry about the judgment.”
This time around, the 26-year-old actress’ appearance in New York City isn’t as shocking as the last time she was seen. She 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 […] not wearing her engagement ring,” according to Us Weekly.
The fact that her engagement ring was missing from her fingers triggered rumors about whether her relationship with her husband, Wladimir Klitschko, was on the rocks. Considering that she has been largely missing from his and her baby’s life due to her depression, it’s wasn’t impossible that has impacted their family life.
A few days after her spotting, the Nashville star uploaded a picture of her family on Twitter saying that just because she is not wearing her ring, it doesn’t mean her baby and husband don’t mean a lot to her.
But her tweet wasn’t super flowery and lovey-dovey in the way she described her baby and husband, which hinted at the fact that there might be still some trouble in paradise.
In fact, her next post on Twitter was a photo of her and baby Kaya in a similar style to their previous family photo. In it, Kaya is crying hard as Hayden Panettiere looks worriedly on.
This is very different from all the pictures that celebrity moms post on their social media. Usually, stars like to show off the cute and adorable side of their babies, pointing out their similarities and maternal instincts. Nashville actress, on the other hand, focused on the hard part of parenting.
Do you think Hayden Panettiere will reunite with her baby and husband soon?
