Juliette Barnes may be a sassy single country star on “Nashville,” but the actress who plays her is officially off the market.

During an appearance on “Live with Kelly & Michael” on Wednesday, Hayden Panettiere  confirmed her engagement to boxer Wladimir Klitschko.

ABC News reports that the show’s co-host, Kelly Ripa, asked the pint-sized star, “I’m sort of distracted… there’s a very large diamond ring on your ring finder… I’m not sure if you want to announce anything… does that signify anything, is that a promise of something?”

Ripa later asked her flat-out if she was engaged, to which Panettiere replied, “I am.”

A date for the wedding has not been settled on, what with the actress busy filming the second season of “Nashville” for ABC.

The 24-year-old star met Klitschko, 37, four years ago at a book party. They broke up for a short period but reconciled last spring.

What do you think of Hayden’s big news?
