Ryan Phillippe:

I'm Payin'

The Pregnant Chick!

3/17/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The woman who claims Ryan Phillippe is her soon-to-be baby daddy says Ryan is a pre-natal deadbeat dad because he hasn't paid any of her expenses ... but we're told that's just not the case.

Alexis Knapp says her baby -- due in June -- is definitely Ryan's.  For his part, Ryan says he'll take a DNA test when the baby is born and if it's his ... he'll step up and support the kid.

But sources connected to Alexis claim while she's been incubating, she hasn't received a dime from Ryan and she's hurting financially because she's unable to work.

But sources connected to Ryan tell us Alexis is lying -- that Ryan has been paying Alexis' expenses, despite the fact that he has no obligation to do so until a judge establishes paternity.

We're also told Ryan is furious, because Alexis agreed that if Ryan paid to support her during her pregnancy, she wouldn't go blabbing to the media -- which Ryan's people believe she has done.

As one source connected to Ryan put it, "File this under the category, 'No good deed goes unpunished.'"

I agree that both were stupid. But why should be pay her for being pregnant even if it is his kid? If it is his and she's uninsured - then yeah pay the doctor bills but only after she presents a receipt. There is zero reason why she needs to be handed cash while she is pregnant. ZERO! He's responsible for her well-being only if they're married. Clearly they're not. Once the baby is born and it's determined that it is his then he should pay child support. JUST CHILD SUPPORT. No talent hacks use babies to get paid. It's done everyday around this country with celebrities and athletes. These guys are just racking up bills when they sleep with tramps. Stupid!

in reference to posting 42.

Many thoughts come to mind, but the one that stands out: Ryan is an actor; why didn't he act intelligently?

She's unable to work and it's Ryan's fault? WHAT? Next she'll want a house for her and the kid and for ryan to foot the bill. Maybe she can move in with Oksana. Gimme a break!

He's an idiot for having unprotected sex with her, but she also likely tried to get pregnant for the fame and $$$. Birth control is just as much her responsibility as it is his. She'll milk him dry if this is his kid. Sad - for the kid.

This idiot fool golddigger should hook-up with the Queen B herself, Oksana. They're both out to get the anti-Mother of the Decade award.

I wouldn't care even if he wasn't helping her financially right now. This is what regular people who don't live in La La Land deal with all the time. If you get pregnant unexpectedly, you deal with it. It stresses your budget. That's life, kids. Add in that Ryan hasn't been proven to be the father yet and we've got a big glass of 'Tough luck, Alexis'.

Ryan seems to be a wonderful father to his other children and I have no doubt in my mind that he will be a wonderful father to this child once it is confirmed that it is indeed his child.

It is women like this that give ALL women a bad name. He did not even know she was pregnant until recently and the baby is due in 3 months and people wonder why he might have some doubts? Plus from what I've read they were dating on and off for a little while which sounds like maybe they weren't exclusive.

I love Ryan as an actor and cannot wait till he is able to get out of his ex wifes shadow! He is not obligated to pay her anything at this point in time she just doesn't want to get a job. I worked clear up until I went into labor so she's just using this pregnancy as an excuse to not work and to get sympathy from everyone. I like how people say her big break into movies was a role in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. I've seen that movie several times and I had to go look it up so see what he role is! She's on the screen for maybe 2 minutes at most.

These celebrities are so stupid! They have to know that most of these women are gold diggers and are only sleeping with them in the hopes of getting money. Take care of birth control yourself! Have a vasectomy so you can't be forced into fatherhood!!
