Before enlisting in the Ukraine reserve army, Wladimir Klitschko was a former multi-time world heavyweight champion boxer, per BoxRec. Klitschko said that he was thankful for his job in the ring because it also gave him so many opportunities outside of it. He told a German radio station in 2011 (via Bleacher Report): “Sport gave me a lot: I can speak many languages, understand contracts, meet many people in different [parts] of the world and of different cultures.”

Boxing also gave him the opportunity to meet a Hollywood star like his future fiancée Hayden Panettiere. But like most celebrity couples in the spotlight, Panettiere and Klitschko had their fair share of ups and downs. The couple first met in 2009 but dated on and off until 2011, according to Us Weekly. While on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2013, Panettiere recalled their first meeting and how she told him that he was “huge,” with him replying, “You’re tiny.” (Klitschko stands at 6 foot 5 inches, per Celeb Heights, while Panettiere is 5 feet tall). And while the couple did welcome their daughter Kaya in 2014, all that begins well doesn’t always end well. 

The couple pulled the plug on their relationship in 2018, according to E!. With Panettiere living in the U.S. and Klitschko in his native Ukraine, a lot has been reported about their untraditional parenting arrangement for their daughter, too.
