Wedding planning can be stressful, between picking the perfect dress, organizing the wedding party and wanting to look flawless on the big day. Well, try throwing a political crisis in the mix. Such are the bridal woes of Hayden Panettiere.
The “Nashville” star tells Parade magazine she is not rushing to the alter with fiance Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko, saying, “Everything that’s happening in Ukraine definitely put a hold on things. But we have time.”
Panettiere and her groom to be are extremely close to the Russian conflict as Klitschko’s brother Vitali sits on the Ukrainian Parliament and is one of the current leaders of the democratic reform movement.
The couple announced their engagement in October of 2013 and the “Nashville” starlet traveled to Ukraine last year joining protesters to show her support.
The couple haven’t let the wedding postponement put a halt on the fun in their relationship, however. Hayden tells Parade she playfully spars with her fiance: “I have tried to chase Wlad around the ring, but it’s a losing battle. I have to catch him off guard.”
