Hayden Panettiere's man may be tall, dark and handsome, but he's not the wedding type.

The "Nashville" star stops by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" today (Nov. 27) and reveals that her fiance Wladimir Klitschko is a bit puzzled by the whole bride and groom thing.

"He's very confused about our traditions," Panettiere explains. "[He asked], 'What is this honeymoon?' I said, 'It's when you go on a vacation afterwards.' Or [I told him] you can't see the bride in her dress before, [and he said] 'Why? Why not, it's dress.'"

One thing the 24-year-old doesn't want her 37-year-old husband-to-be to find out is who exactly pays for pricey celebration.

"He doesn't know the woman's side of the family is supposed to pay for the wedding," she jokes. "Shh ... We don't need him to know that."

As for whether or not Panettiere and Klitschko want to have babies, the actress tells DeGeneres that she's hoping their kids will be normal-sized.

"He's huge. I mean, I know that I'm small, but he's large," the 5-foot actress says of the 6-foot-6 Ukrainian boxer. "That's how we met, I said, 'You're huge,' and he said, 'You're tiny.' And that was it!"

"It's God telling us we're too far on either side of the spectrum. He needs to make normal people," Panettiere jokes. "[Wladimir's] got bowlegs, I've got knock knees so they're going to have straight legs and be normal height."
