Wladimir Klitschko reportedly has impregnated Hayden Panettiere

An inside source allegedly has revealed to US Weekly that Wladimir Klitschko and actress Hayden Panettiere are expecting their first child.

The Ukrainian heavyweight boxer and actress, always looked upon as an odd match, both in practicality (he’s 38, she’s 24) and in size differential (he’s 6-foot-6, she’s five-feet even), have been engaged for about a year.

“Hayden is totally pregnant!” said the source, revealing that the blonde bombshell currently starring on ABC’s “Nashville” following up her star-making turn on “Heroes” isn’t partially, somewhat, kind of or sort of pregnant. Nope, she’s not halfway knocked up … she’s totally pregnant. Like, totally, you see?

The couple dated for a few years, beginning in 2009, before splitting up in 2011 but then rekindled the relationship in 2013 before getting engaged last spring.

In a May 2013 interview with Glamour, the gorgeous actress discussed her desire to start a family.

“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 said. “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.”

The actress cracked jokes during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in November 2013 about the potential physical appearance of the couple’s now-upcoming child.

“He’s got bowlegs and I’ve got knocked knees, so they’re going to have straight legs,” Panettiere said. “And they’ll be normal height.”

Yep, the law of averages may in fact be in play for the future offspring of these two. Not only that, odds are good that the baby will one day grow up to be a country music-singing boxer. Or a boxing country music singer. Or neither. Maybe a cheerleading pugilist. Or an actor-boxer. Or maybe the child will eschew both of his or her parents’ vocations and do something else entirely. Like becoming a marine biologist…

Wait. Where am I going with this? Oh yeah, nowhere. But I’ll leave you with these photos of Panettiere getting cozy with the Stanley Cup, arguably some of the most provocative photographs ever involving a hallowed and revered sports trophy.

Yowsers. Because it’s the Cup, right?
