Kai’s Parents: Relationship

Kai’s parents, Alexis Knapp and Ryan Phillippe, began dating each other in 2010.

They had a beautiful relationship which, unfortunately, was short-lived.

Knapp and Phillippe parted ways a few months later in September 2010.

While the couple wished each other well when they parted, a new chapter was just unfolding for them.

Sometime after their break up, Alexis realized that she was pregnant, and she was positive it was with Ryan.

Alexis was in-between filming ‘So Undercover’ when she learned about her pregnancy.

It was an unplanned pregnancy for Alexis. Since the news came after her split with Ryan, her pregnancy gave birth to a controversy.

People began asking about the baby daddy.

Alexis broke the news to Ryan, who acted in a very calm and understanding manner.

During an interview, Alexis revealed how Ryan is aware of the situation and 100% ready to take responsibility if the child is, in fact, his.

Birth of Kai Knapp

On July 1, 2011, Kai Knapp came into the world to her parents Ryan and Alexis.

Regardless of the uncertainty if the child was his or not, Ryan was there with Alexis at the time of Kai’s birth.

In the birth certificate reports, it stated that Ryan was the father. So, they did DNA tests, and it stated Ryan Phillippe was the biological father to Kai Knapp.

While Ryan reportedly agreed to take responsibility for Kai if she was, in fact, his child, it does not seem like that.

According to a source, he never financial helped Alexis with their daughter’s upbringing.

The actress was an independent single mother to Kai and never asked a penny from Ryan and raised Kai all on her own.

As of now, it looks like Alexis has full custody of Kai.

She’s a single mother, whereas Ryan already has two more children from a previous relationship.

Kai is the only child of the pair, and she has no siblings besides two half-siblings.

Her father Ryan was once married to actress Reese Witherspoon for ten years. (1999-2008).

The duo shares two kids together who are both grown-ups now, Ava Elizabeth Phillippe, 21, and Deacon Reese Phillippe, 17.

They are Kai’s half-siblings, but we are unsure about her relationship with the two.

Ryan lost the custody of his kids with Reese and didn’t get Kai’s custody either.

The 10-year-old doesn’t seem to have a relationship with her father on a level she has with her mother.

Ryan and Kai are hardly spotted together anywhere, and he posts anything about her.

For now, it’s safe to say that Kai is indeed very happy and close with her mother, Alexis.
