After Us Weekly reported that Hayden Panettiere hadn’t spent much time with her daughter, the actress’ boyfriend, Brian Hickerson, had her back. “Hayden is actually on a family vacation right now with her daughter and the Champ [Wladimir Klitschko], so don’t believe everything you read,” he told Access. “She’s a great mom.” We totally believe him, and Panettiere corroborated his story by posting a picture on her Twitter of what appeared to be her daughter lovingly clutching her arm.
We’re not sure where Panettiere, Klitschko, and their daughter, Kaya, were exactly, but Panettiere told Us Weekly in an article published on Feb. 1, 2019, that they love going on “nice long vacations” that “result in an email from [Kaya’s] school saying, ‘Your kid has been gone too long.'” Panettiere defended her and Klitschko’s decision to pull Kaya out of school by boasting that their daughter “speaks multiple languages.”
And not only is Kaya “really good at Russian,” she’s also been hitting the ski slopes since the age of two, as Panettiere told Live with Kelly! (via People). Sounds like Kaya is flourishing!
