Ryan Phillippe Happy for Engaged Ex Reese Witherspoon

| by Stupid Celebrities

Reese Witherspoon is engaged to agent Jim Toth, and her ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe, had only nice things to say about her happy news!

Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth announced their engagement on Tuesday, and Ryan Phillippe, who was previously married to Reese for seven years until 2008, issued a statement wishing them well.

Phillippe told the New York Daily News:

“I’m very happy for both Reese and Jim,” he said. “I wish nothing but the best for the mother of my children.”

In May, Phillippe was interviewed by Ellen Degeneres, and said the co-parenting of his and Reese’s children, Ava, 11, and Deacon, 7, was going well.

“Things are great,” Ryan told Ellen. “It is so important as divorced parents to keep that connection. It makes the kids feel better that the parents are interacting. … We go to all the school events together, and we’re there for each other.”

But in April, Ryan said he was sick of being trashed over their divorce.

“I’ve been dumped on in the press for relationship stuff since Reese and I divorced,” Ryan stated. “I’m tired of getting s**t on. I don’t feel like I deserve it. Things happen! How many people have you broken up with over your life?”
