Learning Witherspoon's engagement to Jim Toth, Phillippe states, 'I wish nothing but the best for the mother of my children.'
Actor Ryan Phillippe has publicly congratulated his ex-wife Reese Witherspoon upon her new engagement to Hollywood agent Jim Toth. Witherspoon and Toth began dating at the beginning of 2010, shortly after the actress split from Jake Gyllenhaal, and the couple have ended the year with an engagement.
Phillippe, who was married to the "Legally Blonde" star for seven years until they split in 2008, has congratulated his ex. He tells the New York Daily News, "I'm very happy for both Reese and Jim. I wish nothing but the best for the mother of my children."
Witherspoon and Phillippe share 11-year-old daughter Ava and seven-year-old son Deacon.
