Ryan Phillippe is heading down the aisle with a Stanford Law School pupil, according to reports.

Actor Ryan Phillippe is reportedly engaged to wed Stanford Law School student Paulina Slagter.

Sources tell Page Six the 41-year-old Cruel Intentions star proposed to 25-year-old Paulina, who he has been dating for more than four years, over the Christmas holidays.

Ryan was previously married to actress Reese Witherspoon - the pair wed in 1999 and divorced in 2007. Ryan and Reese are parents to 16-year-old daughter Ava and 12-year-old son Deacon. He is also father to four-year-old daughter Kailani, who he shares with ex-girlfriend Alexis Knapp.

During a chat on radio host Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio programme in April (15), Ryan gushed about how delighted he is to be with someone as intelligent as his future lawyer partner Paulina.

"She's awesome," he smiled. "When people see her they have these judgements 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 also confessed he is very much open to tying the knot once more, despite the failure of his marriage to Witherspoon.

"It's (serious)," he told Howard of his relationship with Paulina. "I'm not opposed to (getting married again)."

In addition to exciting relationship developments, Ryan has a couple of projects to look forward to in 2016, including the release of TV movie Shooter and historical feature film drama Tlatelolco68.
