Hayden Panettiere is on the wedding fast track!

The 24-year-old actress has already started planning her upcoming nuptials to fiancé Wladimir Klitschko, 37, and has been interviewing different wedding planners, E! News has learned. A source adds that the couple is planning to get married around the holidays.

That means it will only be a few short months before the Nashville star walks down the aisle during her big winter wedding!

Panettiere officially announced her engagement yesterday during an appearance on Live With Kelly & Michael, though speculation of an engagement began back in August when the actress was spotted in L.A. wearing a giant rock on her ring finger.

On Wednesday, E! News gave you all the scoop on Panettiere's 6-carat, emerald-cut diamond engagement ring, which has an estimated value of around $500,000.

Panettiere and Klitschko, who's a professional boxer from the Ukraine, have been dating for over two years. The lovebirds briefly broke up back in May 2011 before getting back together.

Panettiere has previously dated her Heroes costar Milo Ventimiglia was rumored to be romancing British TV personality Steve Jones.
