Sizing Up the Love Match Between Hayden and Her Towering Fiancé

The engaged couple's romance can be measured – we know, because we broke out our rulers

After reuniting in February and, soon after, avoiding engagement rumors, Hayden Panettiere and on-again beau Wladimir Klitschko are taking their relationship to new heights with the Oct. 9 confirmation they are indeed set to wed. So what stands between the 24-year-old actress and her 37-year-old fiancé other than their 13-year age gap? Their 1-foot-4.5-inch (that's 16.5 inches!) height difference.
