Ryan Phillippe will be making his way down the aisle again: The “Secrets and Lies" star is reportedly engaged to girlfriend Paulina Slagter.

Phillippe, 41, popped the question over the holidays, according to Page Six, which first reported the engagement. The pair jetted to Miami on Sunday and are expected to spend New Year’s Eve at a chic Watson Island party.

The actor is said to have dated the 25-year-old Stanford Law student for four years.


It’ll be the second walk down the aisle for Phillippe. He was previously wed to Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon; they divorced in 2007 and have a 16-year-old daughter, Ava, and a 12-year-old son, Deacon. Phillippe also has a 4-year-old daughter named Kailani with model-actress Alexis Knapp.

Back in April, the actor told Howard Stern that his relationship with Slagter is serious and he wouldn’t be opposed to getting married again. He also said that his “awesome” girlfriend gets judged for her looks because she “could be a model” when she’s actually a law student.

“Also what’s great about it — as you get older certain issues become more important to you. I’m very involved in civil rights issues, and so to be with a woman who could actually make an impact in the legal realm — that’s a beautiful thing,” he said.
