Hayden Panettiere’s Giant Rock Distracts Kelly RipaBy: Amanda Crum - October 9, 2013
Hayden Panettiere was a guest on “Live!” this morning, and her enormous engagement ring grabbed most of the attention during her segment.
The 24-year old actress had a bit of fun with “Live!” co-host Michael Strahan by coming out to the stage with a huge snake around her neck (he’s got a tiny fear of the creatures), but all Kelly could look at was the giant rock on Hayden’s finger.
“I’m sort of distracted, not just by the snake, but there’s a very large diamond ring on your ring finger. I’m not sure if you want to announce anything … Does that signify anything? Is that a promise of something?” Kelly asked.
“I mean…I think it speaks for itself,” Panettiere said.
The “Nashville” actress was forced to admit that she is indeed engaged to boxer Wladimir Klitschko. The two have been on-and-off since 2009, but recently Panettiere said that since reconciling, their relationship has only changed for the better…although she admits she’s always been friendly with her exes.
“It’s like the 2.0 version,” she said. “I’ve always had great relationships and stayed really good friends with the guys I’ve dated. It blows my mind sometimes that us getting together has gotten so much attention. It’s like, Really? This is breaking news?”
