Hayden Panettiere Opens Up About Her ‘Simple, Genuine and Very Sweet’ Proposal


Hayden Panettiere graces the April/May cover of Brides magazine, and inside the issue she is revealing details about her upcoming wedding to fiancé Wladimir Klitschko.

The 24-year-old ‘Nashville’ star, who announced her engagement to the 37-year-old boxer in October 2013, revealed that while the gesture wasn’t over-the-top, it was perfect.

“I was not expecting it,” she recalled (via E!) “All I will say is that it was simple, genuine and very sweet.”

“It wasn’t about being overwhelmed by fireworks or a mariachi band,” Panettiere continued. “I think it’s amazing when people do that, but I like that mine was simple and from the heart.”

In the issue, Panettiere tried on several designer wedding dresses, including gowns by wedding giants Monique Lhuillier, Marchesa and Oscar de la Renta. But just because she played dress-up doesn’t mean she’s quite ready to make that big step down the aisle — just yet, at least.

“For the aisle, you’re the purest, most emotionally stripped down version of yourself, sharing this raw moment with the most important people in your life,” the actress explained (via PEOPLE). “It seems very overwhelming!”

We have a feeling she’ll be just fine. And just in case she has some pre-wedding jitters, Klitschko, who is 6’6, can comfort the petite starlet. In fact, their huge height difference (Panettiere is 5’0) was one of their first-ever topics of conversation.

“I said, ‘You’re huge,’ and he said, ‘You’re tiny!'” the actress spilled about the pair’s first meeting, which was at a charity event. “And that was that.”

So cute! And congratulations to the happy couple!
