Hayden Panettiere has been really open (and brave!) about her struggles with postpartum depression. As a public figure, it can be really hard to deal with mental health issues— especially when you have a brand new member of the family — with everyone watching your every move. She went to rehab for PPD to get the help she needed to become a happier, healthier mom for her children — and we think that’s a great, important step.
Sometimes, however, during times of trouble, you still can’t catch a break, and when she was recently pictured without her engagement ring on her finger, rumors started that she and her fiancé, Wladimir Klitschko, were having trouble. But yesterday, Hayden took to Twitter to squash these rumors by posting a beautiful black and white photo of the couple with their one-year-old daughter, Kaya:
The caption says, “Missing rings don’t mean the end of relationships. Blessed to be with my beautiful family.” They certainly do look beautiful together, and she’s absolutely right — just because a photo looks one way, it doesn’t necessarily mean what we may think it means. Context is everything, and within the larger context of their relationship, it looks like they’re doing just fine.
We’re so happy that Hayden, Wladimir, and Kaya are doing so well and love each other so much — we wish them all the love and happiness in the world.
