It was a romantic Christmas for Ryan Phillippe.
The 41-year-old actor proposed to his girlfriend of over four years, Paulina Slagter, over the holidays, according to People and E! News.
Phillippe last starred in ABC’s Secrets and Lies. Slagter is a Stanford Law School student.
“She’s awesome,” Phillippe told Howard Stern earlier this year. “When people see her they have these judgments because she could be a model but she’s about to graduate Stanford Law. 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.”

Well shit. That is how I feel about this. Not like I had any shot at all with Ryan Phillippe but I liked to believe that I did! Is that so wrong? Ryan is by far one of the hottest men in Hollywood and one of the most underrated hot men too. You can take your Bradley Cooper and your Ryan Gosling, I will take Ryan Phillippe any day!
This is not about how I think Ryan is underrated though, an article that will happen very soon just so you know, it is about his engagement. Every since Ryan and Reese broke up (still hurts a little, right?) he has dated a handful of celebrities. He has been linked with Abbie Cornish, Alexis Knapp whom he had a child with, Amanda Seyfried, and Ashley Greene to name a few. Looks like he found love with a law student though, so that is adorable.
Congrats to the happy couple though!
