Watch: Hayden Panettiere Returns to Instagram With a New Look

No matter where life takes her, Hayden Panettiere has found a way to make sure her daughter is never too far away. 

The actress took to Instagram on Sunday, Nov. 28 with a selfie of her and her younger brother, 27-year-old actor and artist Jansen Panettiere, in Tahiti. "Sibling time at the amaaaaazing market in #Tahiti," she caption the sweet sibling shot. "#OceanDiaries @jrpanettiere."

While their faces were mostly hidden behind masks amid the coronavirus pandemic, it was hard not to notice Hayden's accessory: a gold necklace that spelled out Kaya, the name of her 6-year-old daughter with ex Wladimir Klitschko. While Hayden doesn't often post about her only child, she did share an update with fans in December 2020 in honor of the youngster's 6th birthday

"6 years ago today, I met the most amazing (not so little anymore) creature," the Nashville alum captioned a post at the time. "Can't believe my baby girl is getting so big! Thanks for the beautiful cake Yana! #HappyBirthdayKaya #blessed @klitschko."

Judging by her social media posts, it also seems like she's kept a friendly relationship with Kaya's dad, even though the couple split in 2018. "Happy birthday to this wonderful man! @klitschko," she wrote to him in a March Instagram post. 

Though she's known to keep a low public profile, the 32-year-old has been noticeably more active on Instagram since she revealed a new haircut in October, ending a six-month social media hiatus. She's since chronicled her recent Tahitian getaway, including picture-perfect time spent on the water. 

"Perfect Tahitian day," she captioned one post, "to rock my new #Oakley's! Thank you @oakley! #Tahiti #TahitiTourism #Grateful."

While it's unclear how and where she'll be celebrating her daughter's upcoming 7th birthday, it seems fans may just have to keep their eyes peeled on their social media feeds.
