Ryan Phillipe's daughter, Kailani, with ex-girlfriend Alexis Knapp sounds so completely adorable.

Knapp, 22, tells me Kailani, who turns 1 on July 1, is thisclose to walking...

"She actually today stood up and stood there for like 20 seconds," the Project X starlet beamed at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball. "I was like, 'Are you going to walk?! What are you doing? What are you doing?' But then eventually was like, 'OK, I'm going to go down.'"


"I think she can do a lot more than she realizes, but she's amazing and she says my name all the time," said Knapp, who will next be seen in director Jason Moore's upcoming comedy, Pitch Perfect, with Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow and Rebel Wilson.

Knapp also said that Kailani looks a lot more like her these days. "They always come out looking like the dads…because men are just like fat and puffy and can't open their eyes too much," Knapp laughed.

It's not often Knapp is at red carpet events. "I rarely go out," she said. "When I finally do, it's like, 'Needed to breathe.' But I'll be back in six hours."
