Wladimir: I've taken baby classes with Hayden
Wladimir Klitschko says expecting a baby with Hayden Panettiere feels like being in love for the first time.
The heavyweight boxer, 38, and his 25-year-old actress fiancée are currently expecting a baby girl. He's been supportive throughout Hayden's pregnancy and even went along to help her out while doing special exercises for expectant mothers.
"I joined Hayden at her antenatal classes," he revealed to German newspaper Bild. "She wants to go back to work in February. And I want to stay active, too. Hayden understands how important exercise is for me. But I also know I wouldn't be able to do all this without her."
Hayden and Wladimir started dating in 2009, but called things off two years later. In April 2013 they reunited and announced their engagement in October. Now they are starting a family, things are getting even more exciting.
"It's like being in love for the first time," Wladimir gushed about how it feels to expect a baby. "I have butterflies in my tummy."
The sportsman has a big boxing match in Hamburg, Germany, coming up on Saturday. Although Hayden isn't due until early next month, Wladimir hates being apart from her.
"I've known Hayden for six years now and we've wanted a child for a long time," he smiled. "When I place my hand on her stomach, I can already feel our little girl. On Sunday, straight after the fight, I'll be on the first plane out to her."
Hayden recently revealed she thinks her daughter will be a "clone" of her dad and that she feels ready to be a mother.
