Love is in the air!
At least, it is for Ryan Phillippe.
ICYMI, at the end of December, the Cruel Intentions alum got engaged to his girlfriend Paulina Slagter. Shortly after the proposal, the twosome celebrated their happy news at the One Hotel & Homes South Beach in Miami Beach, FL. Aww!
Though it sounds like Paulina deserves a lot more than a Miami trip, as friends have revealed Ryan’s law student love is the reason he became a better person.
A close confidante noted:
“Ryan and Paulina are very much in love. She is changing him. He is a better man.”
We wonder what ex Reese Witherspoon thinks of that little update?? LOLz!
Apparently, what the Crash actor loves most about his 24-year-old fiancee is her mind. The source continued:
“Ryan feels Paulina is very intelligent and has opened his mind to equality and civil rights, areas he has never really focused on that intently. Being a student at Stanford law is impressive to him, and he is very proud of her. He feels that she has the ability to change the world and make it a better place.”
Well that’s good to hear. However, it seems the icing on the cake is the fact that his main squeeze LOVES his children.
The insider added:
“Paulina loves Ryan’s children, and they love her.”
Hmm, has Ryan really finally found the one? It seems so — especially since the source concluded:
“Ryan is madly in love and wants to spend the rest of his life with Paulina. And the feeling is mutual. They had eyes only for each other during the South Beach weekend. They are a wonderful couple.”
We wish Ryan and Paulina only the best as they begin planning their wedding. Here’s hoping they last in the long run (we kid… sort of)!
