Hayden Panettiere Spends a Sweet and Silly Day at the Beach with Her Family of Three

03/06/2016 at 05:25 PM ET

Hayden Panettiere spent a day by the sea with Wladimir Klitschko and daughter Kaya Evdokia on Saturday.

Embracing the sunshine and sand, Panettiere captured photos alongside her 39-year-old fiancé, and also of the Ukranian native playing in the sand with Kaya.

In one image, the Nashville actress smiled while Klitschko rested his head on top of hers. In another, Kaya, almost 15 months, explored near the tide while the boxer crouched down next to her.

“The loves of my life,” wrote Panettiere, 26.

Late last year, Panettiere opened up about battling postpartum depression, which she entered treatment for in October 2015 — a year after giving birth.

“I’m really happy that I can stand up for the women who are out there suffering from this and let them know it’s okay,” Panettiere said in January of being open with her diagnosis.

“They’re not alone. It doesn’t mean they’re weak. It doesn’t mean they’re a bad mom. It doesn’t mean they’re strange. They can get help if they need it, and that’s okay.”

Very happy for her to stand up for the women who are suffering postpartum depression! She is not alone who suffered postpartum depression.

Now stand up for marriage and get married before you get pregnant again.

Sarah on

Agree, get married before get pregnant again.


What does it matter if she’s married? People were having babies for tens of thousands of years before the idea of marriage came around. She looks healthy and happy, and so does her family. That’s all that matters.

This is what I like to see. REAL love, genuine smiles. Too many contrived celeb photo ops.

I am glad someone famous is bringing awareness to this yet again but it is an often overlooked issue with women. Even woman to woman, you hear, it will get better or this and that compared to another woman’s experience but we try to snap a woman out of it instead of understand the issue has to be resolved on its own. It is not the woman. I did not have post par tum, I felt some sadness at times when breast feeding, deep deep sadness but luckily that went away and did not linger. However, now I am suffering through peri-menopause (the time before the change) and it is unreal. Some of my co-workers say it is just me because I am thinking about it too much. I wasn’t thinking about it at all until it hit me and it is hard NOT to think about it when it is causing such disruptive moments in my life. I can’t sleep, I wanna cry a lot which comes in waves, and just as fast as that can go, new symptoms come. I started reading about this and women can get this type of thing at any time in their life as long as they are menstruating. They can get this when they first get their period, before or during cycles, and anytime throughout. I did not realize how bad this can get until it happened to me and it changed my personality for a moment, I did not even see the light at the end of the tunnel even though I was always a positive person. I kept telling my boss, I know that if Hayden had to go to treatment, as beautiful, and rich as she is with a good man that has her back….then I know I am not making this up and it is really hard. Although mine is different, it is all the same, hormone imbalances. We women need to stick up for each other because many times, Doctors are males and don’t. They will prescribe anxiety meds which do nothing for this type of thing. I am in a better place now although still getting periods, I heard it levels off after and I am looking forward to that.

This is a another celeb PR relationship and yes I say it

Stand up for marriage?? Marriage is this nation is a complete joke! I love Hayden and her little family! I bet her daughter will be taller than her by age 8. She’s tiny! And still so beautiful! I remember her in Remember the Titans

Hea on

Stand up for marriage? Why? Marriage is only for people who want it.

Tanya on

Hayden is tiny, her daughter will be bigger than her once she is grown up.

Lilly on

Her man is so hot!

He is hot. Hayden looks genuinely happy. So nice to see a real photo, no staging, not kissing for the camera while standing at the perfect angle to appear the thinnest…. Good for them.
