Actor Ryan Phillippe is engaged to his longtime girlfriend Paulina Slagter. The two were spotted dining together at Seaspice in Miami where Paulina was seen wearing an engagement ring.

The two supposedly got engaged over the Christmas holiday and will be spending New Years together in Miami at the Five Star New Year’s Eve event on Watson Island, which will be headlined by deejay Robin Shulz.

Ryan seems quite thrilled to be with the 24-year-old law student, who he has been dating for four years. On Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show Ryan was quoted as saying:

“She’s awesome. 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.”

Ryan, 41, has two children with his ex wife Reese Witherspoon — Ava, who is 16, and Deacon, who is 12. He also has another child with his ex-girlfriend Alexis Knapp, four-year-old Kai. Ryan and Reese were together from 1998 to 2008, and Reese has now been married to agent Jim Toth since 2011.

Ryan and Paulina have yet to confirm the great news themselves, but the source who spread the news seemed quite confident that the two had made it official. People confirmed the news.
