The American film industry has seen several star relationships. Some of them last long, leading them down the aisle, and others are short flings that have no future. The relationship between Alexis Knapp and Ryan Philippe was the latter. It was a summer fling that would never have had much significance if Kai Knapp did not come into the picture.
Kai Knapp is the ten-year-old daughter of Ryan Phillippe and Alexis Knapp. The two American actors dated in the mid-2010 and went different paths that year. After the split-up, Alexis discovered she was pregnant for Ryan and eventually gave birth to Kai.
With the breakup of both parties, Kai grew up without the presence of her father. However, during the birth of Kai, Philippe was present at the hospital to welcome his little girl.

About Kai Knapp
As a little child, one can say that Kai didn’t choose the life of fame she has. But, with her father and mother being top movie stars, she was born into it.
The sudden conception of Kai came as a surprise to her mother and father as neither planned for it. At some point, Alexis wanted to give her up for adoption after refusing abortion but ended up raising her. Even worse, the father was absent during the nine-month course of her pregnancy.
After going through struggles on her own, Alexis finally had her child Kailani Merizalde Phillipe-Knapp on July 1, 2011, in the United States. Her birth date places her in the Cancer zodiac sign. However, the exact location of her birthplace is not precise as neither party sheds light on it.
Alexis has decided to keep her little gem out of the spotlight for the time being. As a result, there are only few details about Kai. To make things more interesting, the child is being home-schooled, which makes getting more information about her somewhat tricky. However, pictures of the child have been popping up on her mother’s page to keep the public satisfied.
