Hayden Panettiere's father has revealed that the actress and Wladimir Klitschko want to marry before their child is born.

Last month Us Weekly claimed the 24-year-old Nashville star and her fiancé Wladimir Klitschko, 38, are expecting their first child together.

The actress' father, Alan, is now thought to have opened up about their impending arrival.

"The pregnancy was definitely planned," he is quoted as saying to InTouch magazine. "Our whole family is already really excited."

Hayden and Wladimir met in 2009 and soon began dating, before splitting amicably in 2011. In April 2013 the couple confirmed their relationship was back on and they were engaged by October that year.

According to her father, the pair are keen to walk down the aisle before their little one arrives.

"Their schedules are tight right now. But they're going to work it out," he apparently assured the magazine.

Hayden has always been open about her desire to start a family. In an interview with Glamour, the star said she felt more than ready to bring a child into the world.

“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," she told the glossy. "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.”

Hayden and Wladimir are yet to address the pregnancy.
