“Very few people know, and she isn’t wearing her ring publicly yet,” adds the friend of the duo, who first parted ways in May 2011 after two years of dating.
Since getting back together, the actress, 23, and the athlete, 37, have refused to confirm their relationship. (Despite multiple PDA-packed outings — including a cuddly March 24 courtside appearance at a Miami Heat game — Panettiere said they were “just good buddies” in mid-January).
Privately, however, the 5-foot-2 knockout and the 6-foot-6 heavyweight champ are eager to legalize their match. Says the source, “Looks like a summer wedding!”
BTW did anyone else love the Amanda Knox Lifetime movie, starring Ms. Panettiere as Amanda Knox? So good.
