Actress Hayden Panettiere made an appearance on “Live With Kelly & Michael” on Wednesday, showing up with a huge boa constrictor around her neck.
Her diamond sparkler stole the show and the actress confirmed that she is engaged to boxer Wladimir Klitschko, which we reported back in March.
Host Kelly Ripa couldn’t help but notice the huge sparkler, asking, “I’m sort of distracted, not just by the snake, but there’s a very large diamond ring on your finger… I’m not sure if you want to announce anything… Does that signify anything, is that a promise of something?”
The 24 year old played coy, revealing it “might” mean something, but added, “I think it speaks for itself.”
Ripa then asked the “Nashville” actress directly if she was engaged to longtime boyfriend Klitschko, 37, prompting Panettiere to gleefully state, “I am!”
The couple has been dating on and off since 2009. They split in 2011 but reunited earlier this year.
Hayden had a little fun on the show by bringing out a real snake wrapped around her shoulders, after pranking Michael last time with a fake snake. She later thanked him for being such a good sport.
