Hayden Panettiere gave birth to her first child with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko, a little girl named Kaya Evdokia, earlier this month. Considering that Hayden is tiny as hell and Wlad is insanely huge – and the fact that the baby was nearly two feet long and weighed 8 pounds, it’s no wonder she’s finding it hard to get back on her feet and to her old self.
“I’m limping around. I’m still trying to figure out what [pregnancy] has done to my body, how it’s changed it. What’s temporary and what’s permanent,” Panettiere tells PEOPLE, laughing. “I feel like an 80-year-old woman trying to go down the stairs, you know, please tell me this is temporary. But I know some things will never be the same again.”
So far, little Kaya has been an easy baby despite a few restless nights and what Panettiere describes as an “insatiable appetite.”
“She’s really so sweet,” the actress says. “I’m sure that’s the way it’s meant to be, because when they are putting you through the ringer you’re like, ‘You are so lucky you’re cute!’”
LOL, I’m sure some bits WILL never be the same again – but other bits will eventually move back into place, un-stretch, etc. However, I do not envy her one bit – having a baby is a miraculous thing, sure, but holy smokes, your body goes through some crazy stuff.
At least they have a cute little wrinkly, wiggly thing now :)
