Hayden Panettiere Covers Glamour Magazine May 2013

Hayden Panettiere is the cover girl for the May issue of Glamour magazine, which hits newsstands on april 9.  Inside her interview with the mag the 23-year-old confirm reports that she’s back with on-again beau, Wladimir Klitschko and chats about both marriage and family, weighing in on tying the knot at a young age and whether motherhood is in the cards for her.

Check out some highlights below:

On marriage and children: “I don’t really have a plan.  I’ve lived a very big life, and I don’t feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother.  Sometimes people speak about [having kids] like, ‘Your life ends—you’re never going to be able to do anything again!’ And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?'”

“Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there’s nothing that I feel like I can’t accomplish while having children in my life.”

On how a girl from New York transplanted to Nashville meets a Ukrainian boxer, boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko: “Life is like a lunchroom at school. In this industry you’ve got little individual tables of actors, singers, rap stars, this, that, the other. But it’s a big industry that also encompasses anyone in the public eye. An acquaintance of ours did a coffee-table book, and the proceeds went to genocide prevention. We met at the party for the launch of the book; we’ve been friends for five years—we’ve never not been close.”

On how her parents have affected her relationships: “They split up when I was 18. There was this whole thing, and my dad went to jail. [In 2008 her father was arrested for allegedly striking her mother in the face.] When it happened, I knew my denying it or saying it was false wasn’t going to do anything. People would just say, “Oh, she’s in denial.” My parents are really good people—they just are not meant to be together. “
