Hayden Panettiere was "born" to be a mother.
The 23-year-old star has confirmed she has rekindled her romance with heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko, following weeks of speculation. They originally dated for two years but split in 2011, blaming their conflicting work schedules.
Hayden feels much older than she actually is and can't wait to settle down in the future.
"Oh yes, absolutely. I was born to be a mum. I have never rushed anything, but I have always known that that was my end goal in life – that’s what I was built for," she gushed in an interview with British newspaper The Telegraph.
Hayden dated her Heroes co-star Milo Ventimiglia in the past. The actor is 12 years her senior, while her current sportsman beau is 13 years older than her.
The blonde beauty has explained why her relationships frequently involve older males.
"It was never a case of me making a decision, saying, ‘I want to date older men,' but I am drawn to people who make me up my game, who bring me up to their level," she revealed.
"I want to be with somebody who is more worldly than me, somebody who can give me guidance and is completely secure and comfortable with who they are."
Hayden also dated American football player Scotty McKnight who she split from late last year.
The Hollywood actress-and-singer is currently starring in the ABC musical drama series Nashville. Hayden says the 16-hour days are taking their toll.
"Every time I used to read that so-and-so was in hospital from exhaustion, I would be like, 'Yeah: drugs, rehab,’" she scoffed.
"I now understand that you really could end up in hospital from exhaustion."
