Kristin Cavallari will show you her baby if you download her app: tacky or meh?


Personally, I’ve really started to enjoy when celebrities share “first photos” on their social media. It feels more personal, more homespun, more low-key. First baby photos, first wedding photos, first engagement ring photos, first coupled-up photos – it’s all good, in my opinion. But here’s something new that is slightly annoying (to me): Kristin Cavallari debuted her two-month-old son Jaxon’s first photo… via her new app. Like, you have to download Kristin’s app to get access to the photo. Cheeseball. Anyway, here’s Jaxon Wyatt Cutler’s first social media/app photo:

He’s a cutie. He looks like a baby. And a little bit like Winston Churchill. Is it tacky to post the first baby pic with some sort of app? Well… to me, it’s not as tacky as corporate sponsorship for your baby’s birth. But it’s close.

In other Kristin news, she gave an interview to E! News a few days ago where she discussed her postpartum diet (a variation of Paleo) and exercise (she started up when Jaxon was 3 weeks old) and how she lost 20 pounds in two months. Some highlights:

Workouts: “I started working out when Jax was three weeks old. I’ve been working out four to five times a week for 30 to 45 minutes at home, doing tons of leg work like squats, lunges and lifting weights. I want to start Pilates again to focus on my core. I’ll probably get back into it in the next couple weeks….I’ve really been focusing on my legs and butt. My stomach needs the most work but that takes time more than anything and diet plays a huge role.”

Losing the baby weight: “I’m still a couple of pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight, but it took a solid three months with Camden and I think it will be the same this time.”

Diet: “No, my diet is always the same. I don’t eat any toxic chemicals and I try to eat organic as often as possible. We eat a ton of veggies, chicken, grass-fed beef, bison and fish. We also love sweet potatoes and brown rice pasta. I either make a smoothie, oatmeal or eggs for breakfast and a salad or turkey sandwich for lunch. I have a snack in the afternoon—usually nuts with dried cherries, chips with hummus, or an apple and almond butter. I also love avocados with olive oil and sea salt and I put coconut oil in or on everything.”

[From E! News]

I never like it when a media outlet asks these kinds of questions of a woman who literally just gave birth two months ago – it feels like celebrity women aren’t allowed to just spend time with their babies and not give a crap about “losing the baby weight” right away. That being said, this is how Kristin makes her money. This is her life/career. She talks about diets and gets people to download her app so they can see her baby’s photos. So, fair game?

    she seems like a real weirdo

  2. Cel says:

    I hope the article included a section at the end about checking with your doctor before beginning an exercise programme/returning to exercise after giving birth. The norm is not to exercise for six weeks after, or longer if there were complications.

    • Jules says:

      I am sure Calamari here is as expert at post partum exercise as she is at vaccinating her children.

      • Cel says:

        The only way I’d be interested is if she actually listened to a reputable doctor and vaccinated her kids.

    • Red32 says:

      I had a c-section and my doctor didn’t clear me to exercise for 8 weeks. I wasn’t supposed to drive or lift anything heavier than one of my babies for 2 weeks. Of course, I did not know about the driving part until the 2-week appointment so I drove home from the hospital.

  3. Sabrine says:

    I’m surprised this misinformed waste of space is still being featured on this site or any other site for that matter. I hope nobody thinks any of her advice has any merit. Some of it in fact, is dangerous.

    Kristin Cavallari [insert literally ANY words]: tacky or meh?

    Tacky. Which makes me want to watch the new Weird Al video again…

  5. lucy2 says:

    That is super tacky, and yet another D list celebrity who thinks just because she had a baby, she’s worthy of a ton of attention. Poor kid is a pawn to sell apps.

    • Okay. Hate to put my lack of the latest technology out there ( my grammar errors for scrutiny too). Can someone explain what kind of app she’s peddling? Obviously, it’s a paid it simply an app to get the scoop on her overexposed and under talented ,”lifestyle”? I mean, I’m a sucker for the right commercial so please, someone sell me on why this lovely young women has an app. Is it some sort of game like Kardashian’s app? I’m seriously curious. Disclaimer: I never got the Candy Crush craze.

  6. Cal says:

    Her “diet” sounds like every other celebrity diet: organic, coconut oil, avocados, hummus, nuts, eggs, sweet potatoes, brown rice, smoothies… No “toxic” foods. Yawn. We get it. You are a celebrity who eats healthy and has the means to easily do so. Bravo. But, diets are not so much about what you eat, but HOW MUCH you eat.

    Anyway, yeah. App + baby photo thing = tacky.

  7. Tiffany says:

    This is the one instance were she just need to take a seat and go away. Her husband makes a good living so she should just, stop. I am embarrassed for her.

  8. Tracy says:

    You sound as annoying as Jay.

  9. Marianne says:

    Totally tacky.

    She’s basically using her baby for her business.

  10. karkar says:

    I’ll pass. Enough said.

  11. Bucky says:

    I mean, good ol’ JayCut has the ‘beetus, so I guess it’s good that they follow something akin to Paleo in their home?

  12. Pumpkin Pie says:

    And what is a couple of pounds? Two pounds? I so wish these women stopped talking about pregnancy and weight and post-baby body etc.

  13. Rie526 says:

    “He’s a cutie. He looks like a baby. And a little bit like Winston Churchill.”

    Hahaha!!! This made my day. Thank you for that, CB!

  14. eliza says:

    An app? Lol. Some people and their silly egos.

    I would be totally humiliated at someone seeing her app on my phone or tablet.

    She and her hubby are the definition of annoying.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      I’m wondering why she has an app to sell. What does it help me do? Make me feel guilty for not working out when my baby was three weeks old? No thanks.

  15. pnichols says:

    I always loved her. She’s funny, sharp, a good mother and she’s got her act together. She’s a cool chick.

  16. Bridget says:

    Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavilleri: a well matched couple.

  17. holly hobby says:

    I’m more concerned that she refuses to vaccinate both her kids because she bought into Jenny McArthy’s nonsense than doing the tacky ass app thing. Good luck getting other kids to play with your unvaccinated kids, KC.

  18. Suckmyfarts says:

    Of course she has time for this.. She has no real job! Most mothers don’t have time for this type of structure

  19. Ricci says:

    Who is she again? lol

  20. nima3 says:

    I dont get her “popularity”. I find her very unattractive and she was a total “b” on The Hills.

  21. Longhorn says:

    I don’t mind her answering questions about her diet and exercise. She seems healthy and isn’t shaming other moms who don’t follow her eating habits or exercise routines, unlike that Keibler girl.

    Although that app thing is stupid and tacky.

  23. anotherrandom says:

    Am I the only one that gets violently angry when people talk about losing x amount of weight but include the weight from the pregnancy? She prob only gained 30 lbs her whole pregnancy so losing 20 was probably just giving birth! I dunno, I want to hear how many you lost from the point of giving birth. Like after giving birth you’re still 15 lbs from pre-pregnancy so saying you lost 10 is still really good.
