Despite questions surrounding the paternity of the child, Ryan Phillippe was by the side of his ex, Alexis Knapp, as she gave birth to a baby girl on Friday (July 1).
The "Cruel Intentions" star, father to 7-year-old Deacon and 11-year-old Ava with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon, began dating the 21-year-old actress last year before splitting up in September, months before her pregnancy was revealed in March.
According to source close to the situation, Ryan is ready and willing to help out in whatever way he can, as they explained, "He is a good father, and whether this is his baby or not, he wants to do the right thing and be supportive."
As for what type of involvement Knapp has asked of Phillippe, her rep revealed that she has never asked Ryan for any help, nor does she expect it, adding, "Alexis has maintained her silence and will continue to do so. She continues to appreciate the love and support of her family and friends."
