Hayden Panettiere: Expecting a Girl!!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Hayden Panettiere was glowing at the 2014 Emmy Awards Monday night, and not just from the glitz, glamour and thousands of flashbulbs on the red carpet.

Showing off her growing baby bump in a plunging silver Lorena Sarbu gown, the 25-year-old Nashville star is very pregnant ... and she told us the gender!

“I can’t wait for her to come out,” the actress slipped in while speaking to E!'s Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet, causing the host to exclaim, “It’s a girl?!”

“Yes, it’s a little girl. I have to shop,” Panettiere said.

So much for that previous Hayden Panettiere bikini baby bump shot many took as confirmation that she was expecting a baby boy later this year.

It's a girl, alright, and she's already prepping:

“I want to go shopping, I want to paint the room … I’m already working with my amazing interior decorator, Ben Vandiver, who did my house in Nashville."

"He’s trying to do something that she can grow up in and you don’t have to change everything,” said the petite star, clearly already thinking ahead.

As far as choosing a name for her baby, Hayden explains that she and fiancé Wladimir Klitschko have to take a few extras into consideration there.

“We have to make sure that it is American and Ukrainian all at the same time,” she says. “We’re still working on that but we have some options.”

And what’s the expectant actress craving?

“[Pregnancy] probably just accentuated my craving for chicken noodle soup,” Panettiere shares. “I’ve always been a chicken noodle soup lover!”

Congratulations to Hayden and Wladimir! We can't wait to watch Nashville online to see how the ABC drama writes her pregnancy into the script.
