Hayden Panettiere Reveals Baby’s Gender

Mom-to-be Hayden Panettiere radiated the red carpet at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, Calif. on Monday (August 25). Glowing in a plunging silver Lorena Sarbu gown, the Nashville star, 25, revealed the gender of her baby.

“I can’t wait for her to come out,” the actress spilled the beans while speaking to Giuliana Rancic of E! News on the red carpet. Giuliana then asked, “It’s a girl?!”

“Yes, it’s a little girl. I have to shop,” Panettiere confirmed. “I want to go shopping, I want to paint the room … I’m working with my amazing interior decorator, Ben Vandiver, who did my house in Nashville. He’s trying to do something that she can grow up in and you don’t have to change everything.”

Panettiere went on to talk about choosing a baby name with her fiancé Wladimir Klitschko.

“We have to make sure that it is American and Ukrainian all at the same time,” she shared. “We’re still working on it but we have some options.”

The actress went on to gush about her gorgeous maternity gown.

“I love [Lorena] and she did such a fabulous job — the only thing that’s difficult, honestly, is making sure everything is tucked in away and in there, and then the shoes,” she shared. “Walking around all night in the heels — my feet get sore when I’m wearing no shoes. My size 5 feet have never felt this amount of weight on top of them!”

As for her pregnancy cravings, the mom-to-be says it’s all about the soup.

“[Pregnancy] probably just accentuated my craving for chicken noodle soup,” she said. “I’ve always been a chicken noodle soup lover.”

    I still think of her as that little bratty girl in Guiding Light or in Remember the Titans. So hard for me to see her as a grown pregnant woman lol. Congrats to her!

      I know, it’s strange, right? I can totally see her with a little girl, though. 🙂

    No, no, no. She freaked her baby’s sex. Gender is a social construct, sex is biological.

      Maybe she was socially constructing her baby’s gender.
