Panettiere confirmed to Ripa and Strahan on "Live" Wednesday that she's engaged to boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko.

We call this tale, "The Beauty, the Boxer and (unfortunately) the boa."

We're not sure what moment from Hayden Panettiere's appearance on Wednesday's "Live with Kelly and Michael" takes precedence: The fact that the "Nashville" actress walked out with a live boa constrictor around her neck to scare show co-host Michael Strahan, or that she announced she's engaged.

The 24-year-old star, who appeared on "Live" wearing a rather large snake around her neck, and sparkling diamond ring on her left ring finger, confirmed to Ripa she's getting married to her boxer boyfriend, Wladimir Klitschko, 37.

The studio audience reacted by erupting into cheers.

Panettiere, an actress and animal rights activist (thus the snake), recently shared with Glamour, "I've always had great relationships and stayed really good friends with the guys I've dated. It blows my mind sometimes that us getting together has gotten so much attention. It's like, Really?"

Klitschko, meanwhile, is a heavyweight champion. He is also the younger brother of another heavyweight hitter, Vitali Klitschko. A 2011 documentary dubbed "Klitschko" told the story of the boxing world's most reputable brothers.

The couple first met in 2009 at a book party and split for awhile before getting back together last year. A wedding date has yet to be set.
