Hayden, who is engaged to boxer Wladimir Klitschko, revealed “I'm limping around. I'm still trying to figure out what [pregnancy] has done to my body, how it’s changed it. What’s temporary and what’s permanent.”

She added, “I feel like an 80-year-old woman trying to go down the stairs, you know, please tell me this is temporary, but I know some things will never be the same again.”

Panettiere did get at least one restful night of sleep since Kaya’s arrival, thanks to Wlad’s mom!

“Wlad's mom was desperate to take the baby for a night. She looks like she didn't get much sleep, but I feel well-rested!” the “Nashville” star said.

She also called motherhood “such a surreal experience and so out-of-body.”

“You're suddenly looking at this little thing like, 'Oh, that was you in my belly this whole time,’” Hayden explained.
