Hayden Panettiere's fiancé Wladimir Klitschko can't wait to become a father.

The heavyweight professional boxer opened up in an exclusive one-on-one chat with E! News following a press conference about what he's expecting in the very near future.

"When you're going to become a father or a parent, your life is going to change," he told us. "So I look forward to having my life change for the good and I heard, just recently, somebody said, 'You don't know what love is until you have your first baby, then you know what love is.' So I think I know what love is, but I look forward to getting more knowledgeable about that."

Klitschko also couldn't help but gush about his leading lady, saying, "She's an amazing person and I'm more than sure that she's going to be an amazing mom. Her wish to become a mother and have a child [was something] she's been mentioning and telling me about a lot. You know, every dream will eventually come true and she's going to be more than an amazing mother."

And when asked if he's received any helpful tidbits on raising a child, he admitted that he's open to any and all feedback.

"When you become parents for the first time, you are very open to any information and any advice and anything that is knowledgeable because in the first step, without experience, it's important to have expectations and know what it's going to be," she said.

The soon-to-be father concluded the interview by telling us that "it's not important where the baby is going to be born, it's not important [whether it's a] boy or girl, what's important is that the baby's healthy."

Aside from parenthood, Klitschko is currently training for his fight against Kubrat Pulev on September 6 at the O2 World Arena in Hamburg.
