The Nashville star, 25, confirmed reports that she is expecting her first child with fiancé Wladimir Klitschko, in a video of her taking the ASL Ice Bucket Challenge. The clip was shared by Dancing With The Stars veteran Dereck Hough, who will be guest-starring in the upcoming third season of Nashville.
"I accept my ALS Challenge," the actress says in the video. "I renominate Kacey Musgraves -- you're not getting out of this, Wladimir Klitschko, and my unborn child."
Panettiere's comments about her future baby come almost two weeks after it was revealed her pregnancy will be written into the Nashville storyline. The show will return for its new season on September 24.
