Hayden Panettiere Confirms Pregnancy During Ice Bucket ChallengeBy: Lindsay McCane - August 21, 2014
Hayden Panettiere is the latest celebrity to take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money for Lou Gehrig’s disease.
On Wednesday, August 20, Hayden completed her challenge and confirmed her pregnancy with Wladimir Klitschko while doing so.
Hayden can be seen wearing a pair of black leggings and a loose T-shirt, standing in a parking lot. “I accept my ALS Challenge,” the Nashville star said in the clip that was posted on Instagram. “I re-nominate Kacey Musgraves — you’re not getting out of this, [fiance] Wladimir Klitschko, and my unborn child.”
Hayden then can be seen bracing herself for what is about to come. Derek Hough, Hayden’s close friend and Dancing with the Stars pro, then proceeded to dump the bucket over her head, dousing her with ice cold water. “Holy shhhhhhh,” Panettiere said, trying not to use foul language. “Yup, that’s cold,” she added while jumping up and down.
Hayden could not figure out how to post the video on her Instagram, so Hough posted it on his. “Couldn’t figure out how to post it on @haydenpanettier twitter so I’m posting it for her,” Hough wrote. #als #icebucketchallenge (Hayden shortly went into labor after this) Jus kiddin,” he added.
