Ryan Phillippe is going to be a married man for the second time! The 41-year-old actor proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Paulina Slagter, just in time to ring in 2016.
The 24-year-old has been a fixture by his side for the past four years, and this will be the law student’s first marriage. After the news broke, the attractive pair was seen celebrating in Miami, dancing the night away alongside other celebs including Quincy Combs.
“They were very loving,” a source told E! News, adding that they looked, “extremely happy.”
While we have yet to get a glimpse of the rock, we’re sure it’s stunning, and Ryan sounds more than enthusiastic about his fiancé. “She’s awesome,” he previously told Howard Stern in April.
“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," he continued. "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."
Another special woman in his life also attended law school, though it was only for the cameras. His ex-wife, Reese Witherspoon, made her mark at Harvard Law School in the 2001 comedy, Legally Blonde. Maybe Ryan has a type? What are your thoughts on his new engagement? Let us know in the comments section below.
