Hayden Panettiere wore a massive boa constrictor around her neck during a LIVE with Kelly and Michael appearance earlier this morning, but even that couldn't distract from some choice bling.
"There's a very large diamond ring on your ring finger...I'm not sure if you want to announce anything...Does that signify anything, is that a promise of something?" Kelly Ripa asked.
After some prodding, the Nashville actress, 24, did confirm that she's engaged to heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko, 37. The unlikely pair met at a charity event and started dating in 2009 before parting ways in 2011. (Cute story: They first struck up a conversation when Panettiere exclaimed, "you're huge!" to which Klitschko responded, "you're tiny." She's 5 foot 1 and he's 6 foot 6.)
They rekindled their romance this past spring, and Panettiere told Glamour magazine that the experience made them even stronger this time around: "It's like the 2.0 version. I've always had relationships and stayed really good friends with the guys I have dated."

The bride-to-be told Ripa and co-host Michael Strahan that she hasn't set a date yet due to her busy filming schedule, but we'll keep our eyes peeled for another telltale ring appearance.
