Hayden Panettiere Spotted Out Post-Rehab — & She’s Not Wearing Engagement Ring

Just two months after announcing her return to rehab for postpartum depression, Hayden Panettiere was spotted in NYC. And while the actress appeared to be in good spirits, one MAJOR thing was different about her -- her giant engagement ring was nowhere to be found! Dressed in a plaid shirt, neon blue leggings, and Ugg boots, Hayden Panettiere, 26, was wearing quite a bit of clothing for roaming around New York City on July 4. But one thing she noticeably WASN'T wearing? Her engagement ring -- yikes! Looks like there may be trouble in paradise for her and her fiancé Wladimir Klitschko, 40.

While cooly sitting on a stoop, Hayden had her nose buried in the book Underboss: Sammy The Bull Gravano’s Story of Life in the Mafia. The star was also smoking a cigarette as she read. But what stood out the most about her post-rehab outing was the fact that her six-carat engagement ring was totally missing from her left ring finger!

After all, it was Hayden’s first public appearance since entering rehab for a second time, and it’s hard to believe she’d casually just forget to wear the gorgeous sparkler Wladimir proposed to her with back in 2013! For those who need a refresher, Hayden and Wladimir began dating in 2009 but split in 2011. However, the pair reconciled two years later in early 2013. By October of that same year they were engaged! And in December 2014, Hayden gave birth to the couple’s first child together — Kaya Evdokia, 1.

But clearly there was a reason the duo initially broke up back in 2011 — maybe they’re heading down a similar path now? It would truly be a shame though because Hayden did refer to the professional boxer as one of the “loves of [her] life” just this past March during a family beach trip.

And Wladimir has certainly helped the Nashville star through a lot! Let’s not forget that Hayden first sought treatment for postpartum depression in October 2015 after giving birth to Kaya. And we love that the celeb has never been ashamed to discuss her battle with postpartum depression.

“There’s a lot of misunderstanding — there’s a lot of people out there that think it’s not real, that’s it not true, that it’s something that’s made up in their minds, that ‘Oh, it’s hormones,’” she said prior to her very first treatment. “They brush it off. It’s something that’s completely uncontrollable. It’s really painful and it’s really scary and women need a lot of support.” We couldn’t agree more, Hayden!

And after all Hayden’s been through, we sincerely hope her relationship with Wladimir is NOT in trouble — it definitely seems like he’s been her rock for years now! We wish the star all the best.
