Hayden Panettiere Flashes A Big Smile During Family Beach Day

Her on screen alter ego Juliette Barnes might be going through a rough patch on "Nashville," but Hayden Panettiere is as happy as can be. 

The 26-year-old spent the day at the beach over the weekend her with pro-boxer fiance, Wladimir Klitschko, and young daughter, Kaya. The "Heroes" actress posted two sweet photos of her adorable family on Saturday, calling them the "loves of her life."

She also shared a couples snap with Klitschko, highlighting the massive height difference between the two. Hayden's stands 5 feet tall, while Klitschko hits at an impressive 6 feet 6 inches. Opposites clearly attract. 

Panettiere, who sought treatment for postpartum depression in 2015 after the birth of her daughter, recently spoke about the struggle to go public with her experience. 

"I was always so terrified that people weren't going to accept me," Panettiere told Yahoo! Style. "I finally just went, 'I'm tired of living afraid. I'm tired of living in fear of what people are going to think, so you know, I'm just going to put it all out there on the table and I'm not going to worry about the judgment.'"

"The more open I was, the more acceptance I got from people," she continued. "I got so much support and so much love. I was floored. I feel much more exposed, yes, but in a great way."

Due to the ailment, Panettiere has been largely absent from the first half of Season 4 of "Nashville." She's expected to make a triumphant return to the country soap. Sources confirmed to TVLine that Juliette Barnes will be back in action by Episode 14, which is expected to air sometime in April.
