Kelly said: "I'm not sure if you want to announce anything … does that signify anything, is that a promise of something?"

"I think it speaks for itself," replied Hayden.

When pressed to confirm she was indeed engaged, the 24-year-old actress replied: "I am."

Rumours that Hayden had become engaged to Wladimir, 37, began circulating in August when she was spotted with a diamond ring on her finger.

Hayden and her Ukrainian Olympian beau began dating in 2009 after meeting through friends. They briefly split two years later, citing long distance as a factor, but resumed their relationship earlier this year.

No wedding date has been set yet.

Congrats to Hayden and Wladimir!
