Now we know the real reason why Jay Cutler changed his tune about ending his engagement so suddenly: Kristin Cavallari is pregnant!
The serial reality star and her NFL beau announced the news to People magazine Sunday.
“We are thrilled to announce we are expecting our first child together,” the couple told the magazine.
“It’s an amazing time in our life and we can’t wait to meet the new addition to our growing family.”
An original cast member of The Hills and former contestant on Dancing with the Stars, 25-year-old Cavallari originally became engaged to 28-year-old Jay Cutler in April 2011, but Cutler called off the wedding in July less than a week after the couple’s engagement party.
Cutler confirmed the split on Twitter while still defending his then-former flame.
“Thank you all for the support, but if you talk bad about Kristin I will delete and block you,” he wrote.
“It’s unecessary [sic] and heartless. Also, don’t say now I can play football, I could play football when I had her compared to when I don’t. Football is the least of my worries, so have some respect.”
However, things had turned around for the couple by November when Cavallari announced the wedding was back on.
“This time its official..Jay and I are engaged again :),” she wrote on Twitter.
If like many moms-to-be Cavallari waited until she was at least three months pregnant before sharing the news publicly, the timing would match up with her finding out she was expecting right before she and Cutler announced they were back together.
While the pair originally planned for a spring 2012 wedding, there’s no word on what, if any, effect their impending bundle of joy will have on the nuptials.
