Mother-to-be Hayden Panettiere accidentally let slip the gender of her unborn baby during an interview at the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet on Monday night (25Aug14).
The Nashville star made her first official public appearance with her burgeoning baby bump at the annual TV prizegiving, and while chatting with E! News host Giuliana Rancic, Panettiere revealed she and fiance Wladimir Klitschko are preparing for a baby girl. The blonde beauty gushed about her pregnancy, and said, "I'm thrilled. I can't wait for her to come out."
Picking up on Panettiere's gender slip, Rancic asked, "Girl?", prompting the actress to reluctantly confirm a daughter is on the way. She added that she wanted to find out the sex of the baby because she "likes to shop for her baby girl and paint the room appropriately".
This will be the first child for both Panettiere and Ukrainian boxer Klitschko.
Actress Hayden Panettiere has confirmed she is pregnant by nominating her "unborn child" for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
The Nashville star finally acknowledged she and fiance Wladimir Klitschko are preparing for their first child on Wednesday (20Aug14) by posting footage of pal and co-star Derek Hough tipping a bucket of freezing water over her on Instagram.com.
Panettiere prepared for the cold blast by nominating country singer Kacey Musgraves, her fiance and her "unborn child" to take the challenge next. The actress follows in the footsteps of Guardians of the Galaxy star Zoe Saldana, who also confirmed she is pregnant in an Ice Bucket Challenge video posted on Tuesday (19Aug14).
She opted to dodge the challenge set her by director James Gunn, and her husband Marco Perego agreed to take the plunge in her place. Celebrities including Panettiere's Nashville co-star Connie Britton, Robert Pattinson, Emily Blunt and Adam Sandler all recently took the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise cash and awareness for charity the ALS Association.
Boxer Wladimir Klitschko has been hit with a lawsuit from the wife of a fighter he mentors who suffered extensive injuries following a bout last year (13). Magomed Abdusalamov underwent brain surgery and suffered several seizures following his clash with Mike Perez in New York in November, 2013, and his wife now insists the fight should have been stopped.
She claims Klitschko and his K2 Boxing Promotions company associates delayed getting medical attention to her husband in documents obtained by TMZ.com.
The Ukrainian boxer has filed an insurance claim through his company to cover the costs of any judgements pertaining to the lawsuit, but bosses at the insurance company state there is a clause in their deal with Klitschko which excluded injuries inside the ring.
Bosses at the insurance company have asked a judge to rule in their favour.

In the accompanying interview, Panettiere revealed her fiance's proposal was "very sweet and simple and genuine", adding, "It wasn't about being overwhelmed by fireworks or a mariachi band. I think it's amazing when people do that, but I like that mine was simple and from the heart."
The actress, 24, also admitted she was already nervous about being the centre of attention at her nuptials: "When eyes have been on me in the past, it's been because of an event, where people see me as a persona, as Hayden Panettiere the actress.
"For the aisle, you're the purest, most emotionally stripped down version of yourself, sharing this raw moment with the most important people in your life. It seems very overwhelming!"
