Kai Knapp is famous as a celebrity child. She is the daughter of an American actor Ryan Phillippe notable for his roles in the movies "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and "Cruel Intentions." 

Her mother, Alexis Knapp, is an actress and a model.

Her parents' love story was short-lived

Her parents, Ryan and Alexis Knapp, dated briefly. They started dating in the summer of 2010 and parted ways in October of the same year. 

A month after their split, Alexis discovered she was pregnant with Kai. At the time, she was filming So Undercover

Alexis gave an audition for Pitch Perfect just three weeks after Kai was born.

Her father took a paternity test to assure she was his daughter

Her father, Ryan, was unsure at the time if he was her father because when Alexis's pregnancy broke out, they had already split, so he opted to take a paternity test. 

But he was by the side of her mother when she was giving birth to her at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre.

She has two older half-siblings

Kai has two older half-siblings, a sister Ava and a brother, Deacon, born to her father from his marriage to Academy award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon

Ryan and Reese first met in the year 1997 at Reese's 21st birthday party. 

Then the couple starred in Cruel Intentions together the following year before walking down the aisle on 5 June 1999, when she was six months pregnant with their first child, daughter Ava

They welcomed their son Deacon in 2003. Reese filed for divorce in 2006, citing irreconcilable differences. Their divorce was finalized in 2008.

Ryan was 25 when he became a father for the first time. He still looks young and dashing, and people often mistake his daughter for his sibling. 

While appearing on James Corden's show back in 2016, Ryan revealed his then 17-year-old daughter gets embarrassed sometimes due to the fact that he looks so young and gets mistaken for her brother at times which repulses her. 

Besides that, he also said he was prepared to be a young father because he grew up raising kids in a daycare center that his mom ran at the time.

Who is her father currently dating?

Following his divorce from Reese, Ryan started dating an Australian actress Abbie Cornish whom he met on the set of "Stop-Loss" in 2006 while he was still married to Reese

The ex-couple came out publicly after his divorce and was alleged of cheating his ex-wife, but he denied it. 

Ryan and Abbie called it quits after four years of togetherness in 2010

Then he was in an on-off relationship with actress and singer Amanda Seyfried between 2010-2011

He was in a relationship with Alexis Knapp in the summer of 2010 and separated the same year. 

Following his split with Knapp, he started dating law student Paulina Slagter with whom he got engaged in 2015, and broke off their engagement in 2016 after five years of togetherness. 

Ryan later ended his three months romance with a model Elsie Hewitt who filed a lawsuit against him, alleging he kicked her and punched her and threw her down a flight of stairs in 2017

They settled the lawsuit in 2019.

Ryan posted a picture of him and his mate, Matt Sinn, in Christmas of 2021 lying by the fire, making people speculate that he came out as gay. 

Still, Sinn later clarified by reposting the pictures of a model Bailey Dodge and her friend in the same pose and the same place with the caption, "No, Ryan Phillippe didn't come out; here are the girlfriends. 

But soon after the rumor of dating Dodge, Ryan was spotted with a group of women inside his luxurious car, where one woman with dark hair was sitting on his lap. 

It is yet to know who that mystery girl is.

Net Worth

Kai is yet to start her career, so we have the net worth of father Ryan Phillippe, who has amassed a heft amount from his successful career in the showbiz industry. 

His net worth as of now is $30 million. Besides being an actor, he is also a businessperson, Film Producer, Film Director, and Screenwriter.
