Her parents’ love affair was short.

Ryan and Alexis Knapp, her parents, dated briefly. They began dating in the summer of 2010 and split up in October of that year. Alexis found out she was pregnant with Kai a month after they divorced. She was shooting So Undercover at the time. Alexis tried out for Pitch Perfect three weeks after Kai was born.

Her father had a paternity test performed to ensure she was his daughter.

Ryan, her father, was unclear whether he was her father at the time since they had already divorced when Alexis’s pregnancy became known, so he chose to take a paternity test. But he was on her mother’s side when she gave birth at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

She has two elder half-brothers.

Kai has two elder half-siblings, Ava and Deacon, from her father’s marriage to Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon. Ryan and Reese originally met during Reese’s 21st birthday party in 1997. The pair then co-starred in Cruel Intentions the following year before marrying on June 5, 1999, when she was six months pregnant with their first child, daughter Ava. Deacon, their son, was born in 2003. In 2006, Reese filed for divorce, alleging irreconcilable differences. In 2008, their divorce was completed.

Ryan became a parent for the first time at the age of 25. People often mistake his daughter for his sibling since he still seems youthful and daring. Ryan confessed on James Corden’s program in 2016 that his then-17-year-old daughter is humiliated because he appears so young and is sometimes mistaken for her brother, which repulses her. He also said that he was prepared to be a young parent since he grew up nurturing children in a childcare facility that his mother owned at the time.

Who is her father dating right now?

Ryan began dating Australian actress Abbie Cornish after his divorce from Reese, whom he met on the production of “Stop-Loss” in 2006 while still married to Reese. The ex-couple was accused of cheating on his ex-wife after their divorce, but he denied it. Ryan and Abbie divorced in 2010 after four years of marriage. Between 2010 and 2011, he was in an on-again, off-again romance with actress and singer Amanda Seyfried. In the summer of 2010, he was in a relationship with Alexis Knapp, with whom he later divorced.

Following his divorce from Knapp, he began dating law student Paulina Slagter, with whom he became engaged in 2015 and ended their engagement in 2016 after five years together. Ryan later stopped his three-month relationship with model Elsie Hewitt, who filed a complaint against him in 2017, stating he kicked, punched, and shoved her down a flight of stairs. The case was resolved in 2019. Ryan tweeted a photo of himself and his friend, Matt Sinn, resting by the fire in Christmas 2021, prompting speculation that he had come out as homosexual. Sinn later clarified by reposting photos of model Bailey Dodge and her friend in the same pose and location with the caption, “No, Ryan Phillippe didn’t come out; here are the girlfriends.” However, shortly after the rumor of dating Dodge, Ryan was spotted with a group of women inside his luxurious car, where one woman with dark hair was sitting on his lap.
