She’s about to pop! Hayden Panettiere will welcome her first daughter any week now, but until then, she’ll be lugging around her huge baby bump — which has apparently been putting a pretty big strain on her petite frame.
The actress opened up to Hello! Magazine about her pregnancy, and even admitted how much weight she’s gained over the last several months. “I’m 5 feet, 2 inches and I started out at 106 pounds,” she told the mag. “And guess how much I weigh now? Around 145 pounds. And the worst part is my feet are still size five and they’re going, ‘What’s going on with all this weight?’ They’re about to snap from underneath me with the strain.”
And the weight gain is keeping her from a very important occasion…her wedding day! The Nashville star says she and fiance, Wladimir Klitschko, won’t be tying the knot anytime soon. “I’ll tell you one thing for sure: I am not walking down the aisle 40 pounds heavier than usual in a wedding dress with a huge pregnancy belly stitched in,” she admitted. “Not happening.”
But, regardless, she’s more than thrilled to be having her first child. “I’m so ready to hold my baby girl,” she gushed. “I’m going to be a very hands-on mom. I’m thrilled that I am having a girl first because I feel like I know a lot about raising a strong woman. I feel very empowered and I think my daughter will, too.”
