"I'm 5 feet, 2 inches, and I started out at 106 pounds and guess how much I weigh now? Around 145 pounds,” she revealed. "And the worst part is that my feet are still size five and they're going, 'What's going on with all this weight?’ They're about to snap from underneath me with the strain."
She said that one of the up sides to carrying the extra weight is building up some extra muscle. "I'm still quite muscular, so if you're running around carrying 40 pounds of extra weight, you're going to build extra muscle," she said.

Panettiere, who shared this cute Halloween picture of her baby bump painted as a cat, is pretty close to being right on track, as many health care professionals recommend that a woman of average weight should gain around 25 to 35 pounds during pregnancy.
Even though the 25-year-old actress is taking her pregnancy weight gain in stride, she said there is no way she is getting married until after the baby is born, unlike other celebrities like Stacy Keibler who got married while pregnant.
"I'll tell you one thing for sure, I am not walking down the aisle 40 pounds heavier than usual in a wedding dress with a huge pregnancy belly stitched in. Not happening," she said.
Even though she is not excited about the thought of having of wearing a maternity wedding dress, she revealed she is excited to welcome her daughter.
"I'm so ready to hold my baby girl. I'm going to be a very hands-on mom," she gushed. "I'm thrilled that I am having a girl first because I feel like I know a lot about raising a strong woman. I feel very empowered myself and I think my daughter will, too."
