Boxer Wladimir Klitschko knows how to deal with huge and gigantic heavyweight opponents on top of the ring. In a latest post on social media and photo sharing site Instagram, the Ukrainian also showed he can handle the little, cuddly ones of it too.

The 38-year-old world champion and the American actress welcomed their daughter, Kaya Klitschko on Dec. 9, 2014 and the celebrity couple has ever since posted multiple images of their first child on the photo sharing site. Panettiere and Klitschko got together in 2009, but split two years later. Klitschko and Panettiere got back together sometime in 2013 and eventually got engaged.

View the picture of Kaya with Hayden Panettiere below as posted by Klitschko on Instagram. The image ran alongside a Klitschko post of "#family #klitschko #newyear".

Klitschko, who has a pro record of 63 wins and 3 losses with 54 knockouts is the currently World Boxing Association (WBA), International Boxing Federation (IBF), International Boxing Organization (IBO) and World Boxing Organisation (WBO) heavyweight champion. Panettiere became popular for her role as Claire Bennet, the cheerleader, in the NBC series, “Heroes” from 2006 to 2010 and as Juliette Barnes in the ABC musical drama, “Nashville” in 2012.

Meanwhile, Klitschko won the ESPN’s 2014 Knockout of the Year with his fifth round knockout win over Kubrat Pulev on Nov. 15, 2014 at the O2 World Arena in Hamburg, Germany.

"Hard right hand by Pulev and the Klitschko chin holds up for the moment to that punch,” HBO's Hall of Fame announcer Jim Lampley called the action at the time of the knockout. "Down goes Pulev on another left hook! And that may be the one from which he does not get up. He's done, and it's a fifth-round KO win for Wladimir Klitschko."

Klitschko remains one of the most dangerous and dominant boxers in any division winning 21 straight bouts and haven’t lost a match since April 2004 or over 10 years ago. The Ukrainian is in a new battle however, against little Kaya and it appears the world champion is losing the match.
