Ryan is thankful for Reese’s support while he deals with his ex Alexis Knapp’s claims that he is the father of her unborn baby.

Model and actress Alexis Knapp, 26, might have some cruel intentions. The pregnant ex-girlfriend of actor Ryan Phillippe, 36, is almost positive that he is the father of her soon-to-be baby. And she announced that claim before she even told him about her pregnancy!

Alexis announced the news in mid-February at an industry affair party. “He doesn’t even know if he’s the father,” a source tells Us Weekly. “Plus,” adds another source, “Alexis hadn’t even talked to Ryan before the party.” Ouch!

Luckily for Ryan — who is planning on taking a paternity test after the baby is born in June — Reese Witherspoon, 34, the mother of his two children, Ava, 11, and Deacon, 7, has been “really supportive” throughout this tough ordeal.

“Ryan has really confided in Reese about this,” a source explains. “She knows that Ryan is a good dad and she respects that.” What an nice pair of exes! We hope it works out for everyone involved.
