It seems that reality TV star Kristin Cavallari and her beau, Jay Cutler, are starting the new year big as the two have just announced they are expecting their first child. The news shocked the couple's fans as they have just re-announced their engagement in November after having split in July 2011. Find out more details next!

It seems that things have sorted out for Kristin Cavallari and her beau, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, as the two have announced they are expecting their first child. After having hit rocky grounds and split for a while in 2011, soon after announcing their engagement, the couple reconciled since then and things seem to be heading in the right direction as Kristin Cavallari has announced she is pregnant. This will be the couple's first baby and they seem to be over the moon with the fact they are going to become parents.

The couple has been engaged since April 2011 and after having split and reconciled in November, the two decided it's time to start off big in 2012, and what better way than by starting a family. According to People, Kristin, 25, revealed the news by saying:

“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.”

The couple seems to have managed to grow even closer after their split in 2011, as Kristin, who renewed her engagement with Jay Cutler the past year, revealed at the time that:
“Sometimes, in order for things to get better, they have to end – even if it's momentarily.”

This seems to be a great gift for Kristin Cavallari who just turned 25 this month. Apparently, the fact that she was pregnant influenced her decision in choosing a more mellow birthday celebration party. Reports revealed that Kristin and Jay opted for a low-key b-day party alongside a close group of friends and family.
The couple did not reveal how far along Kristin is or when she will be due.
