Hayden Panettiere's new romance with American football star Scotty McKnight is getting serious - the actress met the sportsman's entire family at a recent retirement party for his father.

The former Heroes beauty was first linked to the New York Jets player shortly after splitting from Russian boxer Wladimir Klitschko in May, and the couple has already stepped up its budding relationship by attending a McKnight family bash in Newport Beach, California together late last month.

According to TMZ.com, the pair mingled with McKnight's friends and relatives at the event, before heading to a nearby pub to continue the celebrations.
