For the past few months Hayden Panettiere has been sidestepping engagement rumors, but the gorgeous Nashville star has finally confirmed the news! The actress is engaged to her Ukrainian boxer beau Wladimir Klitschko, but a wedding date is yet to be set due to her busy schedule. Panettiere, 24, first met Klitschko, 37, in 2009 at a book party, and although they split for a short time, the pair was back together by last spring and are now clearly stronger than ever. We are loving her gorgeous sparkler — a large, emerald cut diamond on a split-band platinum setting, which is otherwise unadorned. It’s classic and elegant, and we can’t believe she kept it under wraps for this long. Congratulations to the couple!
