Stepping out! Hayden Panettiere resurfaced on Wednesday, August 3, following her recent stint in rehab for postpartum depression. The Nashville star was spotted spending quality time with her dad, Skip, in the Tribeca neighborhood in downtown Manhattan.
Panettiere, 26, appeared to be in good spirits during the afternoon outing. She wore a colorful jacket with fringe embellishments, jeans and moccasin-styled boots. She wore a peach-colored crossbody bag and kept her blonde locks up in a tight topknot.
Last month, Panettiere made a brief return to social media amid rumors that she and her fiancé, Wladimir Klitschko, were on the rocks after she was spotted not wearing her engagement ring. The star posted a photo of the couple and their 19-month-old daughter, Kaya, on Twitter.
“Missing rings don’t mean the end of relationships,” she captioned the pic. “Blessed to be with my beautiful family.”
Panettiere has always been vocal about her health. Last September, she opened up about postpartum depression during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael.
“It’s something a lot of women experience. When [you’re told] about postpartum depression you think it’s ‘I feel negative feelings towards my child, I want to injure or hurt my child.’ I’ve never, ever had those feelings. Some women do,” she said at the time. “But you don’t realize how broad of a spectrum you can really experience that on. It’s something that needs to be talked about. Women need to know that they’re not alone, and that it does heal.”
