Hayden Panettiere is engaged to Wladimir Klitschko, she confirmed today after her diamond ring (and a giant snake) stole the show on Kelly & Michael.

"I'm sort of distracted, not just by the snake, but there's a very large diamond ring on your finger," host Kelly Ripa pointed out as Hayden, 24, grinned.

"I'm not sure if you want to announce anything," she went on.

"Does that signify anything, is that a promise of something?"

Panettiere at first played coy, telling Ripa and cohost Michael Strahan that it "might" mean something. "I mean, I think it speaks for itself," she said.

When Ripa asked the former Heroes star point-blank if she was indeed engaged to Wladimir Klitschko, her longtime love, Panettiere finally relented.

"I am!" she said.

Major man-crush alert! Arnold Schwarzenegger and Wladimir Klitschko are trading shirtless selfies of one another on Twitter ... seriously, check 'em out:

  • Wladimir Klitschko Shirtless
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger Shirtless

It's either cute, slightly weird, or a little of both, but it started when Klitschko did his best Arnold impression in front of a classic photo of the bodybuilding great.

"Trying to catch u since I'm 12," the 37-year-old Tweeted at Arnold.

Schwarzenegger, obviously flattered by the picture, Tweeted back, "Great shot! It’s fantastic to see one of my favorite champions nailing my pose."

Then, the 66-year-old added, "Right back at you" and attached a topless pic of himself doing a Klitschko impression in front of a poster of the boxing champ.

At least Arnold's not Tweeting shirtless selfies at Hayden Panettiere.

We ask again: Is Hayden Panettiere engaged to Wladimir Klitschko?

This is not the first time the rumor has swirled around the Nashville cutie and her boxer beau, and things took a new, potentially misleading turn this week.

The 23-year-old actress was spotted with a giant, sparkly ring on her finger - yes, that finger, unlike a few months ago, when it was on the wrong hand.

If that's not an engagement ring, she has everyday interesting taste ...

The duo dated from 2009-11 but rekindled the romance earlier this year.

Asked back in May if she is indeed walking down the aisle in the near future, the star held up both of her hands and declared simply "No ring."

That was then, and this (see video above) is now … so you tell us.

Looks like Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko are going the distance ... if you know what we mean! We mean they're engaged, according to Us Weekly!

"Very few people know, and she isn't wearing her ring publicly yet," adds a friend of the duo, who dated from 2009-2011, then reconciled earlier this year.

Hayden Panettiere Engaged?

The duo has refused to confirm their relationship, let alone their engagement, but this Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko kiss earlier this week was a big hint.

Panettiere said they were "just good buddies" in mid-January. Good buddies who are about to spend the rest of their lives together, from the looks of it!

Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko are officially back together.

And kissing each other, in public. Guess the rumors were true, huh?

  • Hayden Panettiere Kiss
  • Wladimir Klitschko and Hayden Panettiere Photo

The 5'1" actress and her 6'6" Ukrainian boxing champ lover could not keep their hands off one another at the Miami Heat game in Florida on Sunday.

These two are even hotter than LeBron, Wade & Co.! Debatably at least.

After dating for about two years, Hayden and Wlad ended their relationship back in 2011, only to rekindle the fire within the past several months.

She plays a country singer on Nashville Season 1. He pummels people.

Hayden Panettiere and former flame Wladimir Klitschko are back on.

It appeared so, at least, when they were seen enjoying lunch at Taco Beach Shack in Hollywood, Fla., on Monday, looking every bit the couple.

  • Wladmir Klitschko Shirtless Photo
  • Hayden P Smiles

"Hayden had two grilled mahi mahi tacos and a margarita; Wladimir had six mahi mahi tacos and a coke," a source says, and those do sound like recipes for a good time.

After lunch, the Nashville star - who was dressed casually - removed her brown leather jacket to play table tennis on the restaurant's ping pong table.

Move over, Leonardo DiCaprio and Bar Refaeli. Another celebrity power couple has just broken up in Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko!

The 35-year-old boxer told People today: "We had a great time together, but it's not easy to manage a relationship between two continents."

Hayden Panettiere also confirmed the breakup, adding:

"Even though we've decided splitting up is best, we have an amazing amount of love and respect for each other and remain very close friends."

Klitschko, the reigning IBF, IBO and WBO heavyweight world champion, repeated that physical distance was the biggest stumbling block for the couple.

Not to be confused with the size difference.

The Scream 4 star and her man, who dated for two years, most recently appeared together at the Tribeca Film Festival for the premiere of the new documentary Klitschko, about Wladmir and his brother Vitali's boxing careers.

Hayden Panettiere says people are ALL about asking intimate questions when talking to her. Specifically, what's it like in bed with Wladimir Klitschko?

You know, given the obstacles and all.

The 5'1" actress and her boxer beau, who towers over her at 6'6", get this a lot apparently. But instead of shying away from the questions, she obliges:

On Ellen this week, Hayden discussed this occurrence: "He is quite a bit bigger than me. I get the prudest people come up to me, and they're like 'Does it work?'"

Yeah, it works. We find a way. Where there's a will, there's a way!"

A shocked DeGeneres couldn't believe fans would ask Panettiere about her sex life but the Scream 4 actress replied that they do, and quite often in fact.

"They do, and they're very conservative people most of the time. They just have to know. Like have to know, 'I just have to ask you this question!"

DeGeneres said she found the personal question "crazy and rude," but Hayden Panettiere dismissed it by saying, "I don't mind it. I find it amusing."

That's one word for it ...

Looks like Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko are officially a couple ... or at least good friends who accompany each other to things like movie premieres.

Originally seen together in Miami over New Year's, the two were spotted (and looking hot) at the "Best of Musical Gala" in Hamburg, Germany Saturday night.

As you can see, there's a bit of a height difference. The Ukrainian boxing champ and actress may seem to have little in common, but they are making it work.

Here's Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko ...

What can these two see in each other? While on the surface, this couple makes less sense than last night's Heroes, we're not judging. To each their own!

Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko are totally dating. She just doesn't want people know it yet. She even books extra hotel rooms for that reason, it turns out.

So people wouldn't suspect she was sharing a room with her new boxing-champ boyfriend, the diminutive star had aides book her a room at another hotel.

They did so, and it sat empty - if you know what we mean! We mean Hayden's dating Wladimir Klitschko, and they shacked up in the same room. ALL NIGHT.

"It was clear she was with Wladimir, and they were at the Setai together," a source told the N.Y. Post. "But she insisted on booking a room at a separate hotel."

"Then she could pretend she was staying elsewhere. The room was never used."

Too bad many Hayden Panettiere pictures were taken featuring the bikini-clad star cozying up to the fighter. Talk about getting caught red (hot!) handed:

Ogling Hayden

Hayden, who was seen poolside with the Ukrainian boxing champ, who towers over her 5'1" frame at 6'6", has a history of pretending she's unattached.

She repeatedly claimed she was "just friends" with Heroes co-star Milo Ventimiglia. Another guy she said was just a friend? Entourage's Kevin Connolly.

Wladimir sure looks friendly with her in that picture above. Forget his many heavyweight titles - the guy has officially earned the title of Lucky Stiff!
