Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko engaged

It's official -- Hayden Panettiere is engaged!

The 24-year-old actress revealed her engagement to boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko on Live! With Kelly and Michael on Wednesday morning, after host Kelly noticed an enormous diamond ring on her guest’s finger.


Hayden coyly responded to questions about her new bling until asked directly about the sparkler’s meaning.

"Are you engaged?" asked Kelly, to which Hayden simply replied, "Yes."

The studio audience, of course, cheered for the pint-sized star, who has been dating the 37-year-old Ukranian boxer since 2009.

The dashing duo have attracted some attention during their many outings together, in part due to their astounding height difference. Heavyweight champion Wladimir is 6' 6'' and towers over his 5' 1'' fiancée. 

Hayden also hinted that motherhood was on the horizon. "I feel like I was born to be a mother," she said. "I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids."

Congratulations to the happy couple!
