2. Despite Her Parents’ Extreme Physiques, Baby Kaya Was Normal Size at Birth
Predicting her baby’s height, Panettiere told Ellen DeGeneres: “[Klitschko’s] got bowlegs and I’ve got knock-knees, so they’re going to have straight legs. And they’ll be normal height.”
She got the height part right. Despite Wladimir’s towering 6-foot 6-inch stature and Hayden’s petite 5-foot frame, Baby Kaya come into the world at an average weight of 7 lbs., 14 oz. and measured 20 inches.
