Hayden Panettiere was in full support for fiancé Wladimir Klitschko's World Title boxing fight, making her first public appearance since attending a treatment center for postpartum depression.

The 26-year-old attended the center last month after struggling with the mental illness following the birth of her daughter, Kaya, last December. It's heartwarming to see her look so healthy in these recent pictures.

"It's Really Painful and It's Really Scary"

Recently talking of her battle with the illness on Live! with Kelly and Michael, she said:

"There's a lot of misunderstanding. There's a lot of people out there that think that it's not real, that it's not true, that it's something that's made up in their minds, that 'Oh, it's hormones.' They brush it off. It's something that's completely uncontrollable. It's really painful and it's really scary and women need a lot of support.”

Following her treatment, the Heroes and Nashville star looked vibrant and happy at the ringside during the Klitschko's World Title bout with Tyson Fury in Düsseldorf, Germany, on Saturday.

Unfortunately, Klitschko was left furious after losing to underdog Fury on points, bringing an end to his 11-year reign as Heavyweight Champion of the World. The 39-year-old has already announced he'd like a rematch with Fury, in an attempt to reclaim his crown (or, more aptly, his belt).

Well Worth It

Panettiere and Klitschko met in 2009, and although they were initially just friends, romance blossomed and they announced their engagement in October 2013. Their first daughter, Kaya, is 11 months old.

In October, Panettiere Tweeted that she was finally starting to feel back to normal following pregnancy, and that she was "blessed" to have her daughter.

"Save the Cheerleader, Save the World"

The native New Yorker rose to fame in the popular TV show Heroes in 2006, playing cheerleader Claire Bennet, who was the basis for the first season's catchphrase "save the cheerleader, save the world." See some of Claire's best bits below:
