Hayden Panettiere is a soon-to-be mom, and is revealing details about her pregnancy that most women tend to avoid.

While chatting with Hello! magazine, Hayden, who is engaged to Wladimir Klitschko, 38, admitted that she has gained 40 pounds since she has been pregnant.

“And the worst part is that my feet are still size five and they’re going, ‘What’s going on with all this weight?’ They’re about to snap from underneath me with the strain," Hayden, 25, explained.

“I’m still quite muscular, so if you’re running around carrying 40 pounds of extra weight, you’re going to build extra muscle,” she added, estimating that she currently weighs approximately 145 pounds.

Panettiere doesn't seem to mind the weight gain, and can't wait to welcome her baby girl in December.

"I'm so ready to hold my baby girl—I'm going to be a very hands on mom," she said. "I'm thrilled that I am having a girl first because I feel like I know a lot about raising a strong woman. I feel very empowered myself and I think my daughter will, too."

And while she can't wait to become Mrs. Klitschko, Hayden says the wedding will have to be put on hold for now. “I’ll tell you one thing for sure: I am not walking down the aisle 40 pounds heavier than usual in a wedding dress with a huge pregnancy belly stitched in,” she said. “Not happening.”
