Well who knew! He may have been publicly blamed for breaking the heart of America’s sweetheart, but Ryan Phillippe, who has two children with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon, can whip up tasty meals for his children like nobody’s business.
“There’s something about the kids knowing the parent is making the food for them with love,” he tells Men’s Health in an in-depth cover interview. “My kids think I’m an amazing cook, and that’s all that matters.”
Ava and Deacon also motivate his workouts — which if the cover shot is any indication, seem to be working quite well.
“I like feeling strong…I want to throw my kids up in the air and wrestle them. Working out has become about functionality.”
He also spills that he still has “sadness” regarding his divorce from Witherspoon and “complicated” feelings about the ordeal.
But he seems to be optimistic about his future: “My aim is always to progress — to make better decisions and be a better father, a better boyfriend, a better husband if it happens again.”
