In a new interview with People in June 2022, Hayden Panettiere, 32, opened up about the ups and downs of her life, including her co-parenting relationship with her former Wladimir Klitschko, 46.
Their daughter Kaya, 7, lives with her father in Ukraine, but Kaya and her mother remain close despite the fact that they had an on-again, off-again relationship for many years.
Russia’s recent invasion of Ukraine has weighed heavily on both of their minds, and the actress is grateful he and their daughter are safe.

It was the first time in my life that I felt like that,” she remarked during an interview on Live! With Kelly and Michael in September 2015.
There are a few women that do. But you don’t realise how wide a range of experiences you may have with this. Something needs to be discussed about it. Women must understand that they are not alone and that healing is possible.

Hayden opened up about the split & the reason she wanted her daughter to move to Ukraine in June 2022
Even though Hayden was receiving treatment for her substance misuse and depression at the time of her split from Wladimir, she revealed in 2022 that it was a contributing factor in their relationship ending.
Her reasoning for allowing Kaya to leave the country, she stated, was because of this.
Prior to discussing their purported feelings toward Wladimir, she said, “I didn’t want to spend any time with her, but I didn’t want to injure her.” “He didn’t want to be around me. I didn’t want to spend time with myself.
The drugs and booze, on the other hand, gave me a brief period of happiness. Afterwards, I’d be much more depressed than before. A self-destructive spiral had taken hold of me.
When Kaya left, she said, “It was the hardest thing I could have done.” My daughter’s best interests were served by me taking care of myself so that I could be a good mother. Then there are those instances when you have to let go.”
In February of 2022, Kaya’s adoring mother stated that she was “safe” and “not in Ukraine” during Russia’s invasion.
