Hayden Panettiere Reveals The Sex Of Her Baby

The Nashville star shimmered in a bump-hugging silver dress at the Emmy Awards, but let slip about what she’s having

She only officially confirmed her pregnancy during the ice bucket challenge last week, but now actress Hayden Panettiere, 25, has also shared the sex of her baby.


Walking the red carpet at the Emmy Awards yesterday, Hayden chatted to E! News presenter Giuliana Rancic, about her pregnancy, saying,

‘I can't wait for her to come out, this little one.’

To which Giuliana quickly replied, ‘It's a girl?’

Hayden then confirmed, saying, ‘I think I just said that, didn't I? Yes, it's a little girl.'

After letting the gender news slip, the Nashville star revealed she’d been doing lots of planning for her daughter-to-be.

‘I like to shop, girl! I want to go shopping for my girl. I want to paint the room appropriately.’


And when it comes to names, she admitted that her and her fiancée, boxer Wladimir Klitschko, are still deciding.

‘We have to make sure that it is American and Ukrainian all at the same time,’ she said. ‘That's a little rough...we're still working on it.’

Hayden also revealed that her pregnancy has strengthened her craving for chicken noodle soup.

‘[Pregnancy] probably just accentuated my craving for [it]. I've always been a chicken noodle soup lover.’
