Hayden Panettiere is slowly recovering from the postpartum depression she suffered from after giving birth to her first baby. She has taken extensive time off from Hollywood to heal herself, and now it looks like that time has done her some good. The Nashville star appeared very much in love with her to-be husband, Wladimir Klitschko, showing that they are ready to end 2016 on a positive note.
Throughout the summer, divorce rumors have been circling Hayden and Wladimir, but with this appearance in Miami, those may die down.
“Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko enjoyed a night out on Tuesday,” reports People Magazine. “Making their first public appearance together since they were hit with breakup rumors this summer, the Nashville star and her beau stepped out to enjoy an evening in Miami, hitting up the Daily Front Row and Faena Art’s Art Basel bash. The couple were all smiles as they posed for pictures at the event, with Panettiere, 27, rocking a long-sleeved black see-through crop top and Klitschko, 40, keeping it simple in a navy tee.”
The Nashville actress has been alluding to their bonds getting stronger. After spending the summer in treatment for her postpartum depression and appearing in New York a couple of times, Hayden traveled to the Middle East with her to-be husband to explore a part of the world that she has never been before.
She even took to Twitter to show that she and Wladimir Klitschko are not about to leave each other.
The positive pictures have shown a different side of Hayden Panettiere, who has experienced not just post-baby depression but also the cancellation of Nashville on the original network.
The biggest drama that she has endured this year was when the paparazzi caught her smoking without her engagement ring in New York City this summer.
“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,” Us Weekly reported. “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.”
“She is trying to take care of herself. She wanted to get herself healthy again,” an insider commented. “The postpartum has been really scary for everybody, but she’s taking care of it. She’s taking care of herself.”
Before this moment, Hayden had not been seen with Wladimir or her baby, Kaya, in months, which is probably why news media outlets started jumping to conclusions about the dissolution of the young family.
To counter this bad press, the 27-year-old actress took to Twitter to defend her relationship and family.
But that hasn’t been the only drama in the Panettiere-Klitschko household. The Ukrainian boxer also faced some challenges in his career after he lost the championship title to Tyson Fury. Wladimir is seeking a comeback, but the delays in the matches have thwarted his plans.
The boxer even announced that he is ready to take Tyson Fury to court if he continued to worm his way around a rematch.
“Unfortunately, Team Fury is trying to change the terms of already signed contract multiple times and is going on endless,” Klitschko said, according to TMZ. “To protect my own rights, and eventually see the rematch, I’m forced to go to court.”
