"I was multi-tasking… this was multi-tasking on a different level!" she quipped.2013-11-27T05:19:12.000Z

The couple met at a friend’s book event when Panettiere was just 19. In an interview with Glamour, she explained, “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.”

In the video above, she told Ellen the pickup line she used to get the athlete’s attention.

“I know that I’m small, but he’s large. That’s how we met. I said, ‘You’re huge.’ He said, ‘You’re tiny,'” she dished.

3. She Already Predicted Her Children’s Size

She told Ellen how her kids will turnout based on her and her fiance’s physical attributes.

“He’s got bowlegs, I’ve got knocked knees, [so] they’re going to have straight legs. They’ll be normal height,”

4. They Broke Up Once

They dated for two years before splitting in 2011. In the spring of 2013, they were back together.

When asked what was different this time, Panettiere said:

It’s like the 2.0 version. I’ve always had great relationships and stayed really good friends with the guys I’ve dated. It blows my mind sometimes that us getting together has gotten so much attention. It’s like, Really? This is breaking news?

5. Hayden Feels She Was ‘Born to be a Mother’

The actress, whose first commercial came to her at only 11 months old, feels like she is ready to dive into motherhood.
At the moment, she has a leading role on Nashville, shown above.

She told Glamour:

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. I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids.
