There's a baby on the way for Hayden Panettiere!

The 24-year-old is expecting her first child with fiance ‎Wladimir Klitschko, People confirms. Us Weekly was the first to report the baby news, with a source telling the magazine, "Hayden is totally pregnant!"

The "Nashville" star has been open about her desire to start a family one day, telling Glamour magazine in 2013, "I've lived a very big life, and I don't feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother. Sometimes people speak about [having kids] like, 'Your life ends -- you're never going to be able to do anything again!' And I'm like, 'What are you talking about?' Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there's nothing that I feel like I can't accomplish while having children in my life."

Panettiere met Klitschko, 38, at a book party in 2009 and dated the 6-foot-6 boxer for two years until they amicably split in 2011. They reunited in the spring of 2013 and became engaged later that year.

The Huffington post has reached out to Panettiere's reps for a comment.
