Hayden Panettiere and fiancé Wladimir Klitschko have something exciting to celebrate this holiday season: The Nashville actress welcomed her first child with the boxer on Tuesday, December 9th.

Us Weekly reports that the pair named the baby girl Kaya and the little one weighed in at 7 lbs., 14 oz. and measured 20 inches. Panettiere's pregnancy news broke back in May, while the couple has been engaged since March 2013.

In August, she flaunted her growing baby bump in a bikini while on a Miami vacation, and confirmation of her pregnancy came just a couple of weeks later when she completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Nashville co-star Derek Hough posted a video on Instagram in which Panettiere says, "I accept my ALS Challenge. I renominate Kacey Musgraves — you're not getting out of this, Wladimir Klitschko, and my unborn child."

Earlier this year, our former cover girl opened up to Glamour about motherhood. "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," she said. "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."

Now, we just have to wait for the two stars to finally walk down the aisle!
