Ever since Nashville star Hayden Panettiere got engaged to Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko, we’ve been anxious for the 24-year-old actress to walk down the aisle in a fabulous wedding dress, but no luck so far. What’s stopping this gal and her hunky fiancé from tying the knot? Read on to find out!

“Everything that’s happened in Ukraine definitely put a hold on things,” Hayden told Parade, echoing what she had to say at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. “But we have time.”

Geez, it must be difficult to plan a wedding when half of the conjoining families is in a war-torn country — not to mention the hectic work schedules these two face, with Wladimir’s competitions and Hayden starring on a hit network drama.

The only thing keeping us pacified until these two finally get hitched is hearing how they adorably work out together. For instance, does Hayden ever try to do boxing workouts with Wlad?

“Not sparring!” she revealed. “That would be a one-way session. I have to chase Wlad around the ring, but it’s a losing battle. I have to catch him off guard.”

Yeah, we’d imagine the foot-and-a-half height difference might explain why Hayden has to put so much thought into when she can pounce on her soon-to-be hubby in the gym. Dude is packing a wallop!

Are you shocked to hear why Hayden is putting her wedding on hold? Hit the comments and let us know!

Nashville airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
