Hayden Panettiere (Juliette Barnes) has been in all the headlines recently and it doesn’t look like she’s going anywhere. The hot and tiny Nashville star has beaten off winter blues in teeny bikinis, questionably meaningful diamond rings adorning mysterious fingers. And in the May issue of Glamour, the oft-secretive star is spilling more than she ever has before.

The 23-year-old actor/activist/singer frequently refers to her special dudes as “friends,” but her relationship with 37-year-old Ukranian boxer Wladimir Klitschko is out in the open. So, with their huge age gap, will they take things at a pace appropriate for her age, or are they on the fast track to marriage?

“I don’t really have a plan. I’ve lived a very big life, and I don’t feel my age,” Hayden spills to Glamour. So, what does that mean exactly? Well, if rumors are true, she’ll be having a summer wedding, and it sounds like kids aren’t far off. “I feel like I was born to be a mother,” she gushes of starting a family.

“Sometimes people speak about [having kids] like, ‘Your life ends—you’re never going to be able to do anything again!’ And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’ Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there’s nothing that I feel like I can’t accomplish while having children in my life. I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids."

So, is Wlad the guy she’s planning on starting that family with? “It wouldn’t shock me!” Hayden exclaims.

Let the baby bump watch begin...
