Hayden Panettiere, an actress, has opened out about the “heartbreaking” time she gave her ex-boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko custody of their daughter Kaya. After a while, he decided to take his daughter back to Ukraine, where the MMA star was born. If you want to know how Hayden’s child custody case now stands, read on.
When Did Hayden Panettiere Give Birth to Her Daughter?
Kaya Evdokia Klitschko was born to the actress on December 10, 2014. It happened a little over a year after she and Wladimir got engaged in October 2013. They broke up in 2018.
Wladimir Klitschko Got Custody of His Daughter With Hayden Panettiere
Postpartum despair led to an addiction struggle for Hayden. During her interview on Red Table Talk on September 28th, she explained how she gave up exclusive custody of Kaya to her ex.
At first, it wasn’t because there was no conversation. She began, “If [Wladimir] had come to me and said I think because of where you’re at right now and your struggles that it would be good for her to be over here with me for a while — which if we’d had enough of a conversation, I would’ve said, ‘OK that makes sense, I get it, I’ll come there to visit and stuff like that.
“The manner in which it was carried out was really disturbing. Signing the documents to give Wladimir “complete custody” of Kaya was the “worst” and “most devastating” thing Hayden had to do, he said. Following this, the father and daughter relocated to Ukraine.
Hayden said the most widespread misunderstanding about her is that she “easily throws away her child,” and then she confessed that she didn’t learn she’d lost custody until her daughter moved out of the country.
“I was going to go work on myself, I was going to get better, and then when I got better, things would change and she could come to me and I could have my time with her,” the former Heroes star said.
Despite not understanding Wladimir’s desire to obtain exclusive custody, Hayden stated she feels Wladimir “thinks he is doing the right thing” and that he is a great parent.
Hayden responded to a question about her daughter Kaya by saying, “She’s extremely stoic,” and by disclosing that Kaya had never returned to California to see mom. She wouldn’t say exactly where Kaya is at the moment, only that it’s not Ukraine.
Another sad detail revealed by Hayden in the interview is that Kaya “goes around asking other ladies if she can call them mama.” The actress from I Love You, Beth Cooper said she has attempted to communicate to her ex how much their kid needs her mother, but that doing so has simply exacerbated the anguish their daughter has already experienced.
She went on to say she has gotten no signals that the custody arrangement would alter, and that she intends to spend more time with Kaya as she gets older.
Does Hayden Panettiere Regret Giving Up Custody of Her Daughter?
Leaving Nashville was “the toughest thing I could do,” the former star told People in July. But the most important thing I could do for my baby was to make sure she was safe, become healthy, and have a mother who could provide for all her needs. Of necessity, there are moments when one must let hold.
Is Hayden Panettiere Now in Custody of Her Daughter Kaya?
Even while Wladimir still has legal custody of Kaya, at this point in her life she is seven years old and lives abroad, Hayden has been allowed to see her and spend time with her. After spending time with her, the actress gushed, “She has a great life,” to the magazine. As a kid, she’s incredible. She’s brilliant and witty, and for some reason she still loves me.
What Has Hayden Panettiere Said About Being a Mother?
The Ice Princess star Hayden was quite vocal about her desire to become a mother long before she found out she was expecting Kaya.
In May 2013, she told Glamour, “I feel like I was born to be a mother.” People talk about [having children] like] ‘Your life ends — you’re never going to be able to do anything again!’ To which I replied, “What the hell are you talking about? Having children has made my life more fulfilling and fulfilling than I could have ever imagined possible. Years with my children are more valuable to me than the freedom to go whenever I wish.
