When it comes to celebrity-athlete relationships, there are a surprising number out there, but one of the oddest has always been Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler. As a seemingly drama filled reality star and a low profile professional football player, they definitely seemed like an unlikely match, but after six years together and three years of marriage, they are going strong. The pair’s relationship has been in and out of the media during their time together, but over that time it has been Cavallari herself who has revealed the most about their life together, and what it is like when two different celebrity worlds collide. Get to know the pair better with these 10 things not widely known about Cavallari and Cutler’s relationship!
10. Getting Started
Celebrities and athletes hook up all the time, but many still can’t understand how a reality star from Laguna Beach and The Hills ended up with an NFL quarterback for the Chicago Bears. It seems Cutler must have been an MTV reality show fan because Cavallari revealed he was the one who reached out to her, and she had no idea who he was! “When I was in the middle of filming The Hills, I got a phone call from my publicist that Jay Cutler wanted to fly me to Chicago and take me on a date.” Cavallari refused, however, adding, “I didn’t who he was! I had to google him. I was like, ‘I don’t want a boyfriend in Chicago.'” She also mentioned something about having a bad experience with a different Chicago athlete but didn’t elaborate which one. As fate would have it, however, she would end up meeting Jay awhile later. “A year later I was in Chicago visiting my mom and we ended up going to a preseason game. I had forgotten all about it and my mom said, ‘Didn’t Jay Cutler ask you out?’ Long story short I ended up meeting him and when he walked in I was like, ‘Oh my goodness!’ I thought he was really cute.”
