Hayden Panettiere is engaged. The actress appeared on U.S. morning show "Live With Kelly & Michael" on Wednesday (October 09) and dropped the news that she is set to marry Ukrainian boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko. Panettiere said a wedding date has not yet been announced.

Daytime talk show host Kelly Ripa coaxed the news out of the 24-year old actress, star of the ABC television drama "Nashville," by commenting on a large ring on Panettiere's finger.

"I think it speaks for itself," Panettiere said.

Panettiere's publicist later confirmed that the actress and the 37-year-old heavyweight champion boxer were engaged.

Klitschko, who won an Olympic gold medal in 1996, and Panettiere began their relationship in 2009 before breaking it off in 2011 and rekindling it again. It will be the first marriage for both.
