Hayden Panettiere praised her ex-fiance Wladimir Klitschko as the 'best father ever' to their five-year-old daughter Kaya, who she called a 'stunner' in a pair of tweets Sunday.
In one shot, Klitschko, a 43-year-old boxer, is dancing with the child in front of a mirror-ball backdrop, decked out by balloons and confetti.
In a separate shot, Kaya, who lives in the Ukraine with her father, had tiger-like features painted on her face as she smiled.
The latest: Hayden Panettiere, 30, on Sunday praised her ex-fiance Wladimir Klitschko, 43, as the 'best father ever' to their daughter Kaya, five, less than two weeks after her boyfriend Brian Hickerson, 30, was arrested in connection with domestic violence
Panettiere's upbeat messages came less than two weeks after her boyfriend Brian Hickerson, 30, was arrested in connection with domestic violence following a Valentine's Day incident in Jackson, Wyoming.
Police said Hickerson punched the 30-year-old actress with 'a closed fist on the right side of her face' amid an argument, according to TMZ.
Hickerson was booked in connection with domestic battery and interfering with a police officer, and subsequently released on $5,000 bond, marking his second arrest in less than a year for a domestic offense.
In May 2019, he was arrested for domestic violence following a drunken argument with the actress.

Mugshot: On Friday, her boyfriend Brian Hickerson was arrested after police say he 'punched her in the face' during an argument at a Wyoming residence
Panettiere, who's been seen on shows such as Nashville and Heroes, is 'in danger with Brian' and has 'impairment issues from drinking too much,' which could lead to 'a tragic outcome' if she remains in the relationship, a source told Us Weekly last week.
Hayden 'believed he would never hit her again,' which is why she chose not to 'materialize as a witness against him' in the 2019 case, the source added, noting that Hickerson has 'isolated Hayden from friends and family' since their relationship started in the fall of 2018.
'Don't blame the victim,' the source said. 'She sadly fell in love with a man that hits women. He is violent, but incredibly charming. It's unlikely this will be enough for Hayden to break it off, permanently.'
Hickerson was arrested February 14 at around 2:30 a.m. after allegedly punching her face with a closed fist during a fight on Valentine's Day.
The Nashville star's boyfriend was found by cops from the Teton County Sheriff's office on the driveway in Jackson Hole, Wyoming after someone called the police to report it. The caller was reported to have said that there was an 'intoxicated male' that was 'locked out of the home' because 'he punched his girlfriend in the face,' according to the outlet.
Police said Hickerson 'struck' the Hayden 'with a closed fist on the right side of her face' during their fight in their bedroom, where he also 'threw' her around.

Police noted that she had a 'red and swollen face' and 'a scrape and swelling on her left hand' which she believed came from his watch during their fight.
When authorities arrived on the scene, Brian was in the driveway and he allegedly told them that Hayden was inside the home 'saying he beat the f**k out of me.'
He said that he hired a private chef to stay around that night so he 'wouldn't be accused of bulls**t' while avoiding their question on whether or not he punched the star.
The couple first began dating in August 2018 after she was spotted walking barefoot out of a restaurant with Brian by her
