It is not certain that Ryan’s the father, but he made sure to be as supportive as he could as ex Alexis Knapp delivered her baby girl on Friday, July 1.
Ryan Phillippe was at former flame Alexis Knapp‘s bedside when she gave birth to an 8 lb. baby girl named Kai at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Friday. The actor, 36, who already has two kids, Ava, 11, and Deacon, 7, with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon, is rumored to be the little girl’s father and agreed to take a paternity test once she was born. Well, Ryan, it’s time!
Back in March, Alexis, 21, told pals that she was pregnant and believed the baby was Ryan’s. The pair dated last year before ending it in September 2010.
Ryan was pictured for the first time with Alexis last week as they headed to a doctor’s appointment in Los Angeles. “Ryan took Alexis to her last doctor’s appointments and was there in the hospital when she gave birth,” a friend tells In Touch. “He’s waiting for the DNA test to see of he’s the father, but he’s acting like he is.”
“He is a good father, and whether this is his baby or not, he wants to do the right thing and be supportive,” says a source to Us Weekly of Ryans presence in the delivery room.
Despite all the rumors, Alexis has asked for nothing from Ryan and is simply “really excited to be a mom.”
“She has never asked Ryan for any help, nor does she expect it,” her rep told Us Weekly. “Alexis has maintained her silence and will continue to do so,” the rep adds. “She continues to appreciate the love and support of her family and friends.” Congrats go out to Alexis…and Ryan!?
