‘Nashville’s’ Hayden Panettiere Shares First Baby Photo

hayden panettiere

Nashville star Hayden Panettiere spent Christmas with her new family recovering from the December 9th birth of her daughter Kaya Evdokia, with her fiancé, Wladimir Klitschko. She tells People that she’s still getting use to her new after baby body.

“I’m limping around. I’m still trying to figure out what [pregnancy] has done to my body, how it’s changed it. What’s temporary and what’s permanent,” Panettiere tells PEOPLE with a laugh, adding that she was “grateful” for her epidural.

“I feel like an 80-year-old woman trying to go down the stairs, you know — please tell me this is temporary! But I know some things will never be the same again.”

So far, little Kaya has been an easy baby despite a few restless nights and what the nursing mom describes as an “insatiable appetite.”

“She’s really so sweet,” Panettiere says. “I’m sure that’s the way it’s meant to be, because when they are putting you through the wringer you’re like, ‘You are so lucky you’re cute!’”

“You’re suddenly looking at this little thing like, ‘Oh, that was you in my belly this whole time,’” she says. “[We’re] just getting to know her.”

“Nashville” Star to Grand Marshall Nashville’s Christmas Parade


Eric Close, who plays Mayor Teddy Conrad on ABC’s hit television show “Nashville,” will serve as Parade Grand Marshal for the 61st annual Piedmont Natural Gas Nashville Christmas Parade. The parade kicks off the holiday season in downtown Nashville on Friday, Dec. 5, 2014 at 7 p.m. The parade theme this year is “Sharing the Warmth.”

“Piedmont Natural Gas is proud to continue this Nashville holiday tradition,” said Stephen Francescon, community relations manager, Tennessee, Piedmont Natural Gas. “The people of Nashville and all of Middle Tennessee have enjoyed and supported the parade with huge turnouts every year. We are especially excited to have ‘Nashville’s’ Eric Close join us as Grand Marshal.”

This year’s night of festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m. with the lighting of the city’s Christmas tree in Public Square Plaza in Downtown Nashville. Eric Close, Piedmont Natural Gas executives and other special guests, will join Mayor Karl Dean. The tree lighting will be immediately followed with fireworks. The parade begins at 7 p.m. at Public Square Plaza and travels down Second Ave. and up Broadway to Ninth Avenue.

“The Nashville Christmas Parade is a great family-friendly tradition that brings people out to enjoy our beautiful downtown,” Mayor Karl Dean said. “With the Mayor’s Tree Lighting Ceremony on the same night, these festivities are a great way for our city to kick off the holiday season. This year’s Mayor’s tree lighting will take on a whole new level of excitement since it will include an appearance by another mayor – the mayor of the ‘Nashville’ TV show. I want to thank Eric Close for serving as grand marshal of the parade and being part of our Nashville community in this special way.”

The 2014 Parade theme is “Sharing the Warmth,” spotlighting the importance of the help Piedmont and our participating warm-hearted customers provide to those in need. All proceeds from the parade will benefit Piedmont’s Share the Warmth program, which assists local low-income families who need help paying energy bills at any point during the year, regardless of their energy source. Since 2003, Piedmont Natural Gas and its customers, along with the Piedmont Natural Gas Foundation, have donated more than $1.5 million to Share the Warmth energy assistance funds.
