Hayden Panettiere finally addressed those pesky engagement rumors while at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night, but the actress did not offer a straight "yes" or "no."
E! News caught up with the "Nashville" star on the blue carpet at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena and asked if she is set to walk down the aisle with boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko anytime soon.
"No ring!" said Panettiere, brushing aside the rumors with a noncommittal response. She held up both bare hands to show she wasn't wearing an engagement ring. But keen eyes could see the sparkly diamond band the 23-year-old received from her boxer beau was also noticeably missing.
Word spread that Panettiere and Klitschko are engaged after the actress was spotted wearing a thick platinum band featuring several rows of brilliant diamonds to the ABC upfront event in New York City last week, People magazine notes.
Talk of upcoming nuptials for the on-again couple first began back in March. At that time, Us Weekly reported the engagement was a secret. "Very few people know, and she isn't wearing her ring publicly yet," a source told the magazine, adding, "Looks like a summer wedding!"
Panettiere, who previously told the Telegraph she was "born to be a mom," split from Klitschko in 2011 after two years of dating. But the couple reconciled earlier this year and things seem better than ever.
"It’s like the 2.0 version," she told Glamour for the fashion mag's May 2013 issue. "I’ve always had great relationships and stayed really good friends with the guys I’ve dated. It blows my mind sometimes that us getting together has gotten so much attention. It’s like, Really? This is breaking news?"
