Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler Divorce

On 26 April 2020, The Hills star Kristin Cavallari and former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler has announced their divorce through their Instagram accounts. Cavallari described the decision to separate as the ‘hardest decision I have ever made’. It is after 10 years of togetherness that they decided to consider getting divorced. 

The celebrity couples, who share sons Camden, 8, and Jaxon, 6, and daughter Saylor, 4, met in the year 2010. Jay Cutler, who was the quarterback of the Chicago Bears in 2009 made the first move towards Cavallari through her publicist. Cutler wanted her to go to Chicago and go out with him. Cavallari, who was in the midst of shooting, didn’t took the request seriously and denied the same. 

Later in 2010, Cavallari got a chance to watch a Chicago Bears preseason game, and her mother remembered about the player who asked her out last year. Following that realization, they met after almost a week, and it led to ‘a swift and intense romance’, according to Cavallari’s book named ‘Balancing in Heels; My Journey to Health, Happiness, and Making It All Work’.

They got engaged eight months after their first meet, on April 2011, during the Easter weekend during a Mexican getaway. Sources close to Cavallari said that she was really excited by Cutler’s proposal. She was really expressive about her husband-to-be at that time, has explained him as a ‘good Midwestern boy, who loves her very much’. During the summer of 2011, there were reports that the NFL star has broken up with Cavallari, which she later denied through her book. However, rumors circulated that they separated because Cutler wanted his wife to remain home, and wanted to be the sole breadwinner of his family. 

The couple announced that they got engaged on November 2011, which was described by Cavallari as, ‘it was so silly’. Cavallari and Cutler announce the arrival of their first child through their social media accounts in the midst of 2012. The celebrity couple welcomed their first child, Camden Jack on 8th August 2012. It was 10 months after the birth of their first child that the couple got married, which included two marriage ceremonies. One in a civil ceremony, and the other at the Woodmont Christian Church in Nashville. 

They announced the arrival of their second child shortly after their marriage, on the beginning of 2014 through Twitter. She opted Instagram to announce the arrival of the new member to their family, who was named as Jaxon Wyatt Cutler.  Their third kid, Saylor James, was born on 23rd November 2015, which also was announced through a much celebrated post in Instagram. 

It was in March 2017 that Cutler was let go by the Chicago Bears. It made the family to leave Chicago. In August 2017, Jay Cutler got the chance to play for the Miami Dolphins, and later in July 2018, the couple started the reality TV show, ‘Very Cavallari’. After 3 successful seasons of the show, it was announced in April 2020 that the show has ended.
