Hayden Panettiere says becoming a mother has been like an ”out-of-body experience.”
The Nashville star gave birth to daughter Kaya – her first child with her fiancé Wladimir Klitschko – last December and since she welcomed her baby into the world she has re-prioritized her entire life.
Talking about motherhood in an interview with Good Morning America, Hayden, 25, said: ”It’s out of body … As long as your kids are happy and healthy and all good – it’s fabulous.”
She then added: ”You just re-prioritize … You hear that they’re healthy, and you just don’t care about yourself any more. It’s the most out-of-body experience, where you go, I will completely lay myself on the line for my child. Without even a hesitation.’ ”
The arrival of Kaya has had a similar effect on world heavyweight champion boxer Wladimir.
The pugilist previously said: ”It has changed my life completely. I’m so happy to have Hayden in my life. She’s the best mom I could even imagine. She’s a true, amazing mom … I think [having] children is something that connects you until the end of your days no matter what. And I think that, Kaya, our daughter, has connected us forever. And that’s the most amazing thing. Everything else is coming, it’s something that needs to be planned … but the connection with the child is better than any marriage!”
