Actor Ryan Phillippe has reportedly found his soulmate in fiancee Paulina Slagter.
The 40-year-old “Cruel Intentions” star is going head over heels for the law student, reported People magazine.
“Ryan and Paulina are very much in love. She is changing him. He is a better man,” a source said.
Phillippe spent the New Year’s weekend with his 24-year-old fiance at eco-friendly One Hotel & Homes South Beach. The actor is mesmerised by Slagter’s intelligence and desire to make life better for everyone around her.
“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,” the source adds.
According to the insider, another thing that attracted Phillippe was the girl’s fondness and affection for the children he has with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon, Ava, 16, and Deacon, 12 and daughter Kai, 4, with former girlfriend Alexis Knapp.
“Paulina loves Ryan’s children, and they love her. 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.”
