Kristin Cavallari and fiancÃ© Jay Cutler released a statement Monday sharing that the two are expectant parents.
“We are thrilled to announce we are expecting our first child together,” the couple said in a statement. “It’s an amazing time in our life and we can’t wait to meet the new addition to our growing family.”
Though the Laguna Beach alum and her fiancÃ© are beyond excited, they along with many of their followers were shocked to learn of their baby news.
According to TMZ, the couple was not planning for a child at the moment. Even though the two had talks about children in the future, the timing surprised them as well; but, the news of an arriving little one has reinforced their commitment to each another.
Much of the hysteria is from the reported quickie break-up to make-up that the Chicago Bears quarterback and the reality star had recently gone through. But Jay took to his Twitter account to set the record straight.
“Thanks for all the tweets. We couldn’t be more excited. We don’t usually comment on our relationship but for the record I never broke up with Kristin. Its unfortunate some people are saying hurtful things during such a joyous moment in our life.”
Kristin didn’t re-tweet that message, but did decide to tweet clarity on some drinking rumors.
“I tweeted that I had margaritas a few weeks ago to throw ppl off cuz I had gotten a couple tweets about my pregnancy. I didn’t really drink!” she wrote.
Cavallari and Cutler were introduced by mutual friend Giuliana Rancic and began dating in 2010. After eight months of dating, Cutler proposed to Kristin. They (reportedly) called off their engagement in July 2011 and got back together while Cavallari was performing on “Dancing with the Stars.”
Congrats Kristin and Jay!
