American actress Hayden Panettiere has responded to reports that she and fiancé, Ukrainian boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko have split. The 26-year-old actress took to her social media account to slam the break-up rumours.

The Nashville star shared an image of the couple and their daughter Kaya Evdokia Klitschko on Twitter. She tweeted: "Missing rings don't mean the end of relationships. Blessed to be with my beautiful family."

Panettiere had previously revealed her struggle with postnatal depression after giving birth to her first child. Speaking to US Weekly, she said: "I suffered a bit of postpartum depression. You're not alone or crazy, ladies!"

However, Panettiere is determined to grow her family. Appearing on Live with Kelly and Michael the pint-sized beauty discussed her desire for more children. She said: "I always said four, but I'm not going to speak too soon. One at a time. I mean, I would love it if Wlad figured out a way to get pregnant and he could have the baby."

Adding on, she recently talked about suffering from post-partum depression. She wrote: "The postpartum depression I have been experiencing has impacted every aspect of my life. Rather than stay stuck due to unhealthy coping mechanisms I have chosen to take time to reflect holistically on my health and life. Wish me luck!"
