Mother-to-be Hayden Panettiere accidentally let slip the gender of her unborn baby during an interview at the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet on Monday night.

The Nashville star made her first official public appearance with her burgeoning baby bump at the annual TV prize giving, and while chatting with “E! News” host Giuliana Rancic, Panettiere revealed she and fiancé Wladimir Klitschko are preparing for a baby girl.

The blonde beauty gushed about her pregnancy, and said, “I’m thrilled. I can’t wait for her to come out.”

Picking up on Panettiere’s gender slip, Rancic asked, “Girl?”, prompting the actress to reluctantly confirm a daughter is on the way.

She added that she wanted to find out the sex of the baby because she “likes to shop for her baby girl and paint the room appropriately”.

This will be the first child for both Panettiere and Ukrainian boxer Klitschko.

Former Treasurer’s Office Employees File Suit

Republican gubernatorial candidate State Treasurer Dan Rutherford participates in a Republican gubernatorial candidate debate Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014, in Springfield, Ill. The four Republican gubernatorial candidates said that they’ll be willing to work with unions if elected but differed on how to approach the relationship during a downstate debate that largely focused on pension reform, taxes and just briefly on personal issues that have dogged some of the candidates.

The suit is the latest chapter in a saga involving sexual harassment claims that undercut Rutherford's 2014 campaign for governor.
