Congratulations to Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and his reality TV fiance Kristin Cavallari. It was announced today that the two are expecting a baby, their first child together. Definitely some good news for the couple, as last year they became engaged, then split abruptly, then became engaged again. I think 2012 will be their year, don’t you? Let’s hope so! Jay and Kristin are our Sports Couple of the Week.
The couple broke their baby news to PEOPLE Magazine, telling them exclusively, “We are thrilled to announce we are expecting our first child together. It’s an amazing time in our life and we can’t wait to meet the new addition to our growing family.” Aww, so sweet! No word on how far along Kristin is, but I’m guessing she’s out of her first trimester.
Finally, a happy time for Cavallari, who last year found herself dumped shortly after her engagement party. I felt so bad for her! Definitely not the best timing. To add more insult to injury, just days after she and Jay split, photos of Kristin trying on wedding dresses appeared in Life & Style Magazine. It was so sad to see those pics, taken just days before Cutler broke up with her. How mean. Certainly he had second thoughts about getting married before she was scheduled to do the photoshoot, he should have said adios rather than let her go through with posing in wedding gowns. Anyways, after the two parted ways, she and Jay returned their wedding gifts (ugh, can you imagine?!) and they went on with their lives. Kristin signed on to do Dancing With The Stars and Cutler started his third season with the Chicago Bears.
The two would eventually start talking again and got back together again in October. Cutler was even in the DWTS audience to cheer Kristin on. In November, the two were re-engaged, with the former Laguna Beach star tweeting, “This time it’s official. Jay and I are engaged again :)”
I wonder if that wedding will take place before the baby gets here?
Congratulations Jay & Kristin!
