NEW YORK – Actress Hayden Panettiere is confirming her engagement to Olympic boxer Wladimir Klitschko.

Appearing on Wednesday’s Live with Kelly and Michael, the 24-year-old actress was flashing a large diamond ring that prompted host Kelly Ripa to inquire what it might signify.

Panettiere confirmed she’s engaged as the studio audience cheered. She added that she and longtime boyfriend Klitschko, 37, haven’t set a wedding date.

Panettiere and Klitschko started dating in 2009 but split up in 2011. In an April 2013 interview, she said the two had rekindled their relationship.
