Hayden Panettiere Confirms Pregnancy During The Ice Bucket Challenge (Video)

The Nashville star has taken part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and simultaneously FINALLY confirmed herself that she’s expecting her first child

Although it’s not the biggest surprise that Hayden Panettiere is pregnant (her growing bump isn’t all that subtle), the former Heroes has decided to stay keep her baby news under wraps – until now.

Just a day after pregnant actress Zoe Saldana passed her Ice Bucket Challenge nomination to her husband to complete, Hayden, 24, bravely accepted hers and drenched herself with icy water in the name of charity.

But before she did the deed, the petite actress reeled off her nominations, which included her ‘unborn child’. We’re not sure how baby Panettiere will carry out his or her nomination in 24 hours as the challenge states, but we love the maternal gesture.

Hayden’s Nashville co-star Derek Hough caught the dunking on camera, so you can watch the whole video below.

‘I accept my ALS Challenge,’ Hayden said. ‘I renominate Kacey Musgraves, you’re not getting out of this, Wladirmir Klischki [her fiancé], and my unborn child.’

Derek posted the video along with a tongue-in-cheek caption directed at Hayden’s pregnancy. ‘Hayden shortly went into labor after this… Jus kiddin,’ he wrote. While we’re not sure how far into her pregnancy Hayden is, judging by the size of her bump we reckon she’s got a few months to go yet.
