Hayden Panettiere’s tough job
Hayden Panettiere’s biggest job is "keeping her daughter alive".
The ‘Nashville’ star – who has two-year-old Kaya Evdokia with her fiancé Wladimir Klitschko – admitted there is no "typical" day for her anymore since her little one arrived.
She said: "I can’t say that anything is typical or ‘the norm’ about any day of the week now that I’m the mom of a two-year-old. She gets her hands in just about everything, and my biggest job at the moment is keeping her alive!"
The blonde beauty moved from Tennessee to Los Angeles several years ago but admits it wasn’t until she had Kaya that she realised who her true friends are.
She added: "My life became all about staying healthy, getting good sleep, finding parks and nature. Now I’m the mother of a two-year-old, I’ve found my pack of solid, loyal, lifelong friends here and am settled into a beautiful routine. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a blast. My life and who I am have simply evolved in a beautiful way. So actually Nashville feels like a first home to me!"
And the 27-year-old actress admits it was a "struggle" to feel like Los Angeles was her home for a while when she first arrived in the city.
She told the new issue of Parade magazine: "When I first arrived, I remember struggling with the concept of making a place so foreign to me feel like home. I was 22, not a mom [yet] and had no one to answer to but myself. My life was all about having fun, exploring myself and meeting new people.
"It was filled with late nights, great music and figuring out where I fit in here in Nashville. Then I went through a pregnancy and I found out who my true friends were – the ones that were going to stick around and support me. I’ll just say the outcome was slim pickings!"
