A little under a year after Hayden Panettiere gave birth to the baby she made with the Jolly Ukrainian Giant (pro boxer Wladimir Klitschko) to her Little American Sprout, she publicly announced that she was suffering from the stage 10 post-birth sads known as postpartum depression and checked into a treatment center to get help. This was at the end of 2015. In August 2018, we all found out that one of my favorite couples had broken up, and she moved on to aspiring actor/real estate agent (which is the occupation of 98% of the population in Los Angeles) Brian Hickerson. Hayden and Brian debuted their everlasting love on the stroll when they were swarmed by paparazzi as she drunkenly danced barefoot in the parking lot of a restaurant.
A few months after that, Hayden’s friends started whispering to the tabloids about how they’re worried about her, especially when she was involved in some drunken hillbilly family wreck between Brian and his dad in South Carolina. Brian, who seems to have his hand firmly up Hayden’s culo like a ventriloquist dummy and is doing the talking for her, said at the time that her friends are not worried about her and everything is fine. Well, according to UsWeekly, everything isn’t so fine, because Hayden hasn’t had much time with her daughter.
A source says that 29-year-old Hayden and 42-year-old Wladimir’s 4-year-old daughter Kaya is currently living with him in Ukraine, and his mother is helping to care for her. The source says that Hayden knows that it’s not a good idea to bring her child into a situation that involves drunken family fights.
“She knows the child being with her is not best for [Kaya right now]. It’s a sad situation.”
BUT WAIT! Here comes Hayden’s mouth (read: Brian Hickerson) to tell Access Hollywood that UsWeekly is wrong and everything is fine, again.
“Hayden is actually on a family vacation right now with her daughter and the Champ, so don’t believe everything you read. She’s a great mom.”
Okay, but based on the stories we’ve heard about Brian, Hayden keeping Kaya away from that makes her a great mom.
Access Hollywood wasn’t able to get a statement from Hayden or her rep, and she didn’t say anything to UsWeekly about her daughter. But she did tell UsWeekly that Brian is a wonderful fountain of wisdom and she thinks they’ll get married one day.
“I’ve lived a big life, I’ve met a lot of people. I learn something new from [Brian] every day, and that’s something that not many people can provide me with,” the Nashville star, 29, tells Us. When asked if she thinks they’ll tie the knot someday, she gushes, “I think so. I hope so.”
So it was Brian, not Hayden, who responded to the rumors about her friends being worried about her and about her not seeing much of her daughter. And the only time she did speak out was to say how wonderful Brian is? Why do I have a feeling that when UsWeekly talked to “Hayden” on the phone, she had a severe case of laryngitis, which strangely enough made her sound like a 28-year-old (or 30-something-year-old depending on which source you go with) aspiring actor/real estate agent from South Carolina. Quick! Gather the Heroes, because they need to save the cheerleader again.
Here’s Hayden looking happy earlier this week at the L.A. premiere of Sharkwater Extinction with her brother, her mom, and a dog friend.
