A source revealed to Us Weekly that the actress is back home with her family now following a stint in rehab for postpartum depression.

"She’s doing great!" the insider told the site. "She’s doing really good now."

According to the source, Panettiere is home with her boxer fiancé, Wladimir Klitschko, and their 11-month-old daughter, Kaya, about a month after reports surfaced saying Panettiere was seeking treatment for her postpartum depression. She's been out of rehab for at least a few days now, since she made a surprise appearance at Klitschko's match at the Heavyweight World Championship in Dusseldorf, Germany, last Saturday.

"She was excited to be at Wlad’s fight," Us Weekly's source revealed.

Panettiere, who stars as Juliette Barnes on the ABC drama series Nashville, reportedly took medical leave from filming while she recovered and is set to rejoin the cast in January. Coincidentally, Panettiere's character on the show also suffers from postpartum depression, but her story line was written before Panettiere announced her own struggle with the illness.
