Ryan Phillippe Engaged To Paulina Slagter
Ryan Phillippe is engaged to Paulina Slagter!
The actor reportedly proposed to Slagter, a 24-year-old law student, over the Christmas holiday. They’ve been together since 2011. The engagement news comes just one day after Gossip Cop exclusively corrected a false report wrongly claiming Phillippe wanted to get back together with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon.
Phillippe and Witherspoon, of course, were wed in 1999 and divorced in 2008. The Oscar winner remarried in 2011, tying the knot with Jim Toth. Along with Toth, Phillippe and Witherspoon co-parent their two children, 16-year-old Ava and 12-year-old Deacon.
Phillippe is also dad to daughter Kai, 4, with ex-girlfriend Alexis Knapp. Following their relationship, the star began seeing Slagter. He indicated the seriousness of their romance in an interview with Howard Stern back in April.
Phillippe said of his now-fiancée, “When people see her they have these judgments because she could be a model but she’s about to graduate Stanford Law School.” The actor further said he was “not opposed” to marrying again. And now it looks he’s headed down the aisle with a soon-to-be lawyer on his arm.
Phillippe and Slagter are currently in Miami, where they’re expected to ring in the New Year. They have not publicly commented on the engagement, but Gossip Cop wishes the couple many congrats.
