Hayden Panettiere is a new mom! The “Nashville” actress and her fiancé Wladimir Klitschko welcomed their first child, a baby daughter named Kaya, earlier this week. Kaya was born on Tuesday, a rep has confirmed. The new arrival weighed 7 pounds and 14 ounces, measuring 20 inches.

Panettiere confirmed her engagement to longtime boyfriend Klitschko during an appearance on “Live! with Kelly and Michael” in October 2013, showing off her ring and telling the co-hosts, “I think it speaks for itself.” No wedding date has been announced, although Gossip Cop busted a tabloid report claiming she and Klitschko planned to have three ceremonies.

Throughout her pregnancy, Panettiere showed off her baby bump on the red carpet and even on the beach, wearing a bikini while visiting Miami with Klitschko in August. After revealing that she was expecting a daughter, Panettiere told reporters she was “thrilled” because she felt like she knew a lot “about raising a strong woman.” Congrats to her and Klitschko on Kaya’s birth!
