We’re used to celebrities being coy about their weight gain during pregnancy. So how refreshing for Hayden Panettiere to come right out and say how much weight she’s put on while pregnant.
The 8-months pregnant Heroes actress has revealed that she’s gained about 40lbs. “I’m 5 feet, 2 inches and I started out at 106 pounds and guess how much I weight now? Around 145 pounds,” she told Hello! magazine. “And the worst part is that my feet are still size 5 and they’re going, ‘What’s going on with all this weight?’ They’re about to snap from underneath me with the strain.”
“I’m still quite muscular, so if you’re running around carrying 40 pounds of extra weight, you’re going to build extra muscle,” she said.
The 25-year-old is clearly proud of her pregnancy curves and posted a picture of herself in a revealing ‘cheetah’ Halloween costume this weekend.
“Happy Halloweeeeen!!!!” she tweeted alongside a picture of herself in an animal-print bikini.
Hayden is expecting her first child – a girl – with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko and can’t wait to be a mum.
“I’m so ready to hold my baby girl,” she said. “I’m going to be a very hands-on mom. I’m thrilled that I am having a girl first because I feel like I know a lot about raising a strong woman. I feel very empowered myself and I think my daughter will, too.”
