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 dont know if the law are diffrent in Cali. but here in NJ when my sister was pregnant and her husband got laid off not only did she continue to work but the goverment paid for her prenatail care and hospital expensives. It was a blessing for her. This girl should do that cus Ryan is not even sure hes the dad and he has no legal reposability. Just saying.

I guess if you THINK YOU MAY BE pregnant by a celebrity that makes you unable to work.Pregnant women work everyday all around the world. Why this woman feels the need NOT to work is beyond me.
She should be ashamed of herself.

Laura, its not the government that pays for it, it is me and every other working person in the state. Why should I have to pay for her prenatal care when she is perfectly able to get a job.

If the child is his, why is it a "good deed" to support it? There are so many deadbeat dads that seem to think it's a good deed to do the right thing.

yadda yadda    

why can't she work? I'm a mom and I worked through each of my pregnancies. Is she that dainty and prissy she can't take care of herself? If that's the case how is she going to care for a needy child 24/7?

Ryan - you have to be kidding! Joining the ranks of all the others who are as dumb as dirt. Caught with your pants down with just another would be actress prostitute. The only notoriety these woman see is when they see themselves on TMZ, court papers and in the newspapers along with Gloria Allred. From then on they all just fall into obscurity. What a disappointment you are, if this is true. These young woman have no shame and are gold diggers - what comes around goes around - wait until the child has a mind of their own then all of a sudden it begins - BIG TIME!!

Before he pays out anything she should have to prove that the baby is his. He is willing to step up if it is his and it seems he is even stepping up now without knowing if the baby is really his.

She is just a gold digger looking for a quick payday. Next thing you know she'll be trying to marry Paul McCartney.

Why are all these celebs sooo stupid. This child is called an insurance baby. This woman just happens to be flat ass broke with no family to help support her. And guess what, just like Oksana, Kevin Federline, etc she can't work. If you have money find someone to date with a career, and some self worth! Wrap it up!
