Like her Nashville character Juliette Barnes, who secretly got married in season 1, Hayden Panettiere kept her engagement under wraps to her boxer beau Wladimir Klitschko ...until now!
While on Wednesday's (Oct. 9) Live With Kelly & Michael, the 24-year-old actress flashed her diamond ring, and host Kelly Ripa couldn't help but comment. "I'm sort of distracted, not just by the snake, but there's a very large diamond ring on your finger."
Acting coy, Hayden admitted, "I mean, I think it speaks for itself." When Ripa asked the actress point blank if she was in fact engaged, she confirmed, "I am!"
Back in March, a source for Us Weekly claimed the actress was secretly betrothed to her on-again, off-again boyfriend. This news came as a bit of a shock as the two had just reconciled in January after splitting in May 2011, following two years of dating. "Very few people know, and she isn't wearing her ring publicly yet," the insider told Us at the time.
What do you think of Hayden's engagement? Too soon?
