The 'Lincoln Lawyer' actor's ex-girlfriend, Alexis Knapp, welcomed her first daughter last Friday, July 1, and he is reported to have stayed by her side in the delivery room.
Ryan Phillippe didn't let his ex-girlfriend going through labor by herself. In Touch reported that the Louis Roulet of "The Lincoln Lawyer" stayed by Alexis Knapp's side in the delivery room at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center when the aspiring actress gave birth to a baby girl last Friday, July 1.
The newborn is said weighing in at 8 pounds and is named Kai. It was reported that doctors induced labor on June 30 because Alexis was due to give birth a week before. Nonetheless, a friend said, "It was a smooth delivery." Kai is Alexis' first child and believed to be Ryan's third.
Ryan dated Alexis in summer 2010 before they split in October the same year. News of Alexis' pregnancy broke out in March this year, and her mother Marjorie Knapp has told Radar Online in a recent interview that Ryan is the father of the baby. Marjorie said, "She told me right away that it was Ryan's. They were in a relationship."
While there were reports that Ryan would demand a paternity test after the baby's birth, a source close to Alexis told E! News, "Ryan has always known that he is the father and will not be taking a paternity test." Indeed, the former husband of Reese Witherspoon has been involved in the pregnancy. He was seen taking her to her last doctor's appointments.
