Hayden Panettiere is officially engaged to her super tall boyfriend, boxer Wladimir Klitschko. While it was known she was engaged, she hadn’t made a public statement. She sure fixed that. She announced the engagement on Live with Kelly and Michael, but gave us all a dash of Britney 2001 by draping a snake over her shoulders. I guess that’s one way to get people to look at your hands. According to USA Today, she wore the boa to freak out Michael Strahan. That’s when Kelly said,
“I’m sort of distracted, not just by the snake, but there’s a very large diamond ring on your ring finger,” said Kelly. “I’m not sure if you want to announce anything … Does that signify anything? Is that a promise of something?”
Panettiere responded coyly, “It might be … I mean, I think it speaks for itself.”
Kelly then got more direct, asking, “Are you engaged?” and Hayden replied, “I am.”
Congrats to the adorably height mismatched pair!
