Reese Witherspoon’s ex chatted to HollywoodLife.com about why he loves his kids so much, why being a dad is terrifying AND who Ava and Deacon are taking after the most!

Nothing is more important to Ryan Phillippe than his family, which is why the MacGruber star took a pause from partying with the world’s biggest sports stars Tuesday night to discuss being a doting dad!

“To have a little you walking around is amazing,” the 35-year-old actor gushed to HollywoodLife.com at Hennessy Black’s ESPY party in LA July 13. He added of Ava, 10 and Deacon, 6, “They are growing too fast though – that is the scary thing!”

But now that his kids are growing at an alarming rate, who are they taking after the most – Ryan or his ex-wife, Reese Witherspoon, 34?

“They both have their own personalities, but I see a bit of myself and their mother in both of them,” Ryan said diplomatically. “It makes me happy because I’m confident that we are great parents.”
