Just days after using her ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video to confirm she was pregnant, “Nashville” star Hayden Panettiere walked the red carpet at the 66th annual Emmy Awards with her baby bump on full display in a shimmering gown. She also revealed to E!’s Emmy pre-show that it’s a baby girl she’s expecting.
It’s the first child for Panettiere and fiance Wladimir Klitschko and will change the course of her “Nashville” character, Juliette Barnes. Producers are writing in a bundle of joy for the character, though there’s no word on who the father is.
“Nashville” Season 3 premieres Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
