And then there were three. Former “Hills” star Kristin Cavallari and her football-playing fiancé, Jay Cutler, have confirmed that they are soon going to be parents.
“We are thrilled to announce we are expecting our first child together,” the couple said in a statement to People.com. “It’s an amazing time in our life and we can’t wait to meet the new addition to our growing family.”
The road to parenthood has had its ups and downs for the duo. After initially getting engaged in April 2011, the soon-to-be parents called it off in July, reportedly while they were knee-deep in planning their wedding.
However, after several months apart, the couple confirmed that they were once again engaged in November. The football player asked the former reality starlet to marry him with a 5.2-carat engagement ring.
“She is really happy. She is in the early stages, but she can’t wait to be a mom,” a source told USmagazine.com. “They have just bought a house in Tennessee and can’t wait to start their family.”
In an interview with the magazine, Cavallari opened up a bit about her on-again, off-again relationship with Cutler. “The past year has been interesting,” she said in December, shortly after they got back together. “There have been a lot of ups and downs, but overall it’s been great. We’re just enjoying being engaged,” she added. “We were definitely planning the first time, but I can’t plan the same wedding. I need to do something entirely different.”
Before settling down with Cutler, Cavallari had a reputation for being quite the man-eater. On her stints on both “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills,” the small screen’s biggest vixen hooked up with Justin Bobby Brescia, Brody Jenner and Stephen Colletti.
