1. Their marriage almost didn’t happen!

Back in July 2011, the couple called off their engagement. They headed to couples counseling around that time and managed to reconcile their differences later that year. Two years later, they finally tied the knot in a ceremony in Nashville. Must be happy memories there since that’s where they’ve settled now!

2. They credit couples therapy with keeping their love alive!

Cavallari says their therapist was vital in getting them to the altar in the first place. In 2016 she told USWeekly, “One hundred percent, I think it saved our relationship. It’s the best. And I think it’s so good for each person individually as well. I realized why I react certain ways to certain things, and you learn great tools for communication, which is the most important thing I think ... I 100 percent credit our therapist.”

3. His career made her nervous!

Cutler was the quarterback for the Chicago Bears and Cavallari worried about his safety on the field. Once he was let go from the team in 2017, she acknowledged that leaving football was tougher for him than for her, telling USWeekly, “Selfishly I’m excited for him to be safe from now on. It will be nice not to see him get hit anymore and it will be nice to have him around a lot more.”

She hadn’t kept her feelings about the danger of football a secret before that. After watching her hubby get a concussion on the field, she took to social media to say, "Sometimes I wish I could just say how I really feel about this football shit ... And give commentary about what I’m realllllly thinking.” 

4. Her career didn’t thrill him, either!

When they first got married, Cutler expected Cavallari to be a stay-at-home mom and wife. That wasn’t in her plans, though! As she says in her book Balancing in Heels: My Journey to Health, Happiness, and Making It All Work, "If I stayed at home, I wouldn't be happy and would probably end up resenting Jay for it."

5. Absence makes their hearts grow fonder!

When asked about keeping a marriage going despite Cutler’s football travel schedule, Cavallari said it was actually a good thing for them. She told the Today show, "He was in Miami for five months, and I only saw him every few weeks. So that kind of keeps the passion alive.”

6. She’s not afraid to make fun of her husband!

There’s an Insta account out there called “IfJayhadInstagram” that has some truly amazing photos of Jay Culter. But don’t be fooled into thinking he’s behind the account - Kristin started the account to have a little fun at his expense.

7. Jay is Mr. Mom!

Now that Culter is off the field, he’s home with the kids a lot more, leaving his better half with more time for her career pursuits Cavallari tells PageSix that he’s the one getting their three kids ready  in the mornings and picking them up from school every day.

But don’t think that the kids are getting an easy ride from Daddy! Cavallari say “Jay is the stricter of the two for sure. Jay doesn’t even really yell. If we’re going to go down that route, I’m probably the one that yells more. They just know not to mess with Daddy because Daddy’s going to drop the hammer, and for some reason, they feel like they can get away with a lot more with me. Isn’t that great?”

We’ll all get to see lots more of the Cavallari-Cutler glam clan when their new show premiers and we can’t wait!
