Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler are getting a divorce after 10 years together.
Cavallari shared the news today on Instagram. She wrote, ‘With great sadness, after 10 years together we have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce.’
‘We have nothing but love and respect for one another and are deeply grateful for the years shared, memories made, and the children we are so proud of. This is just the situation of two people growing apart. We ask everyone to respect our privacy as we navigate this difficult time within our family,’ Cavallari shared with a photo of the two.
Cutler, who was the quarterback for the Chicago Bears, made the first move in 2009.
According to Cavallari, ‘I got a call from my publicist that Jay wanted to fly me out to Chicago and take me out.’
‘I didn’t know who he was! I had to Google him. I was in the middle of filming ‘The Hills‘ so I was like, ‘I don’t want a boyfriend in Chicago,’ and passed on it,’ she explained.
A year later, Cavallari attended a Chicago Bears game with her mom and actually met Cutler for the first time. The two ended up hitting it off.
In 2011, Cavallari and Cutler got engaged. However, the couple broke up three months after. By October of that year, the couple was back together.
Two months later, Cavallari announced she was pregnant with their first child. They welcomed their son in August.
In 2013, after being engaged for two years, they finally made their way down the aisle.
That said, Cavallari would’ve been fine staying engaged forever if it wasn’t for their child.
‘Having a kid made me realize that I wanted the security of a legal union for him. I wouldn’t want him (or any of our kids, now,) to ever interpret our voluntarily not getting married as a sign that Jay and I may not be completely committed to our family,’ she revealed.
In 2014, Cavallari and Cutler welcomed their second child. A year later, the family of four became a family of five.
In March 2017, Cutler was cut from the Chicago Bears and the family moved to Nashville. However, Cutler ended up signing a $10 million one year deal with the Miami Dolphins.
But when he moved to Miami, Cavallari stayed back with the kids.
A year later, Cavallari’s reality show, ‘Very Cavallari,’ premiered which gave a glimpse at the family and their sometimes chaotic life.
Cavallari and Cutler share sons Camden, 7, Jaxon, 5, and daughter Saylor, 4.
News of their divorce comes a month after they were seen vacationing in the Bahamas. The couple would also be celebrating their anniversary in two months.
And while their break up might come as a shock, there were rumors that Cutler was having an affair with Cavallari’s best friend, Kelly Henderson.
This topic was discussed on Cavallari’s reality show. At the time, Cutler denied those rumors.
