The Lincoln Lawyer actor Ryan Phillippe had a father-daughter date with his 12-year old daughter, Ava, on Wednesday (March 28). The pair were spotted leaving Hugo Restaurant in Los Angeles, Calif. after they had a casual lunch.
The 37-year old shares joint custody of Ava and his 8-year old son, Deacon, with his ex-wife, Reese Witherspoon. The Cruel Intentions star was photographed taking his son out earlier in the week to the pet store.
It has recently been reported that Witherspoon is expecting her third child with her husband, Jim Toth. Toth has been accepting to his new step-children and treat them like his own.
What does this new relationship with another father-figure mean to the actor?
A source revealed to Us Weekly, “[Ryan] wants to be around just as often now that Ava and Deacon have a family unit with Jim. They mean a great deal to him.”
