Hayden Panettiere Is Not-So-Secretly Engaged

I just want to know why Hayden Panettiere is perfect. Ever since Remember The Titans, she’s been my celebrity girl crush, and I’m pretty sure it’s not even ok to have girl crushes when you’re 10 years old. Even though she was a tomboy in that movie, I still thought she was absolutely perfect.

Ever since then, we’ve been living parallel lives. I got braces in middle school, snuck out to an elementary school playground to make out with a boy on the baseball team in high school, went to prom, got a nose job, joined a sorority, fell asleep at a few bars, and ended up being a medium-sized deal on Twitter, anonymously. She went on to have a promising acting career, with roles in both film and television, become a cover girl for Neutrogena, and I believe have a brief stint as a singer, if I remember her interview with Chelsea Handler correctly. We both grew up to be only 5’2” (except that I think I’m 5’1”).

See? Parallel.

The only difference, of course, is that Pannettiere is now engaged to her mostly cute, way older, way taller, former ex-boyfriend, Ukranian boxer, Wladimir Klitschko. The two are keeping their engagement a secret, and I never told anybody because I am such a good friend. A source tells Us Weekly:

“Very few people know, and she isn’t wearing her ring publicly yet.”

Well, people know now. I’ve always thought it was dumb to keep this kind of thing under wraps, especially because you’re not just going to not tell your best friend with the big mouth about it, so you might as well just get excited like everyone else does. Despite the fact that the two have been spotted canoodling at a Miami Heat game, they’re still claiming that they’re “just good buddies.” No one’s good buddies with their ex, Hayden. Anyway, the cat’s out of the bag, and the couple is looking at a summer wedding, according to the source, and I’m really looking forward to it.
