Ryan Phillippe's ex/alleged baby mama has lawyered up ... and a legal battle is now brewing ... TMZ has learned. 

0318-knapp-kaplan-ex-getty

Alexis Knapp -- the model/actress who claims to be carrying Ryan's baby -- has hired Mark Vincent Kaplan.

Ryan has said he'll take a DNA test once the baby is born and support the child if it's his, but Alexis is not satisfied.

And here's a fun fact.  Kaplan repped K-Fed in his divorce/custody battle with Britney Spears.

That lawyer is a dead-ringer for Ed Flanders of St. Elsewhere fame.

should have a name for such women who set up rich or famous men for their financial gain, a friend said he always made sure watching used condoms washed down in the toilet ...

Mark Vincent Kaplan is the male version of Gloria Allred. Always looking for publicity and doing pointless press conferences. Basically the s*** of the earth.

She couldn't make it as a model or an actress so she knew she had better do something to bring in some money to keep her in designer clothes and a nice house.....what to do??? Get knocked up by a rich guy, that does the trick every time.

To stop this crap lawmakers and judges need to stop allowing these gold diggers so much in child support. No child needs more than a couple hundred dollars a month to pay for their needs. Outrageous child support is for the mother to live a comfortable life, not the child.

Can you say chaching! To think she got pregnant on the night he told her it was over. Ryan dear, you are a sucker - you were played and you didn't even realize it. Now you can pay through the nose. You will be paying the mommy because, of course she can't work, and you'll be paying for another child FOR EIGHTEEN YEARS!!!!!!

You were played and there are no buts or maybe's about it. A condom would have been cheaper, better yet you should have walked away when you had the chance.

Well, at least she is showing her true colors before their child is born despite Ryan willing to be responsible.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't so all of you actors wanting to nail the sweet young things? Prepare to pay sweeter for the latter young things.

This just proves what type of mother she won't be so please Ryan, if it is yours, fight for custody because it seems they are all trying to be the younger virgin, I mean version, of Oxsana!

therock: Although I agree there are a lot of women that are gold diggers, not all women are. I for one, got pregnant by a hot poor guy and guess what? He pressured me to have an abortion but I just couldn't do that. I never once asked him for money in any way. All I wanted was for him to be involved & be a dad, and he refused. So am I allowed to say all men are jerks that can't man up?

Why all the anger towards the woman? He was equally responsible for protecting against an unwanted pregnancy. Remember, this is the guy who cheated on Reese with two babies at home. Not exactly
Mr. Integrity.

Sounds like she was in the market for some poor sucker to knock her up. If not, why wasn't she using a birth control?

Ryan is a good father and when he decides he wants shared custody of the child she is going to need that lawyer. Reese has probably got her lawyers working on making sure her kids' half sib is raised properly and goes to the best schools. Ryan and Reese are not stupid, hope she knows what she is getting into.
