Kristin Cavallari’s family leaving Chicago after hubby Jay Cutler cut by Bears

There’s a change of scenery in store for reality show personality Kristin Cavallari and her family. The Hills alum shared a post on Instagram on Monday telling her followers that she, her husband Jay Cutler and her kids, sons Camden, 4, Jaxon, 2 and 16-month old daughter, Saylor, are leaving Chicago. Why the move? The re-lo is coming on the heels of Jay being released from the Chicago Bears, where he was the QB for the team for eight seasons. Kristin, 30, posted the photo on Monday from the Windy City.

Jay, 33, who has been married to Kristin for three years, was released by the team on Thursday, March 9. Jay played college ball at Vanderbilt and, after getting picked 11th in the first round of the NFL draft in 2006, played for the Denver Broncos for three seasons. He signed on with the Bears in 2009 and in 2014 signed a seven-year, $126 million contract with the team, but played only five games in the 2016 season due to injuries to his thumb and shoulder. The team ended up with a 3-13 record for the season, which we can assume helped lead to his release. He released a statement of his own regarding his release to the Chicago Sun-Times, which read, in part:

Chicago is the city where I met my wonderful wife Kristin. I have been fortunate to have three beautiful children here. Our family will leave Chicago with great memories and relationships on and off the field. We look forward to the next chapter in our lives and wish the best to Bear fans everywhere.

As for where the family is heading next, Kristin has aspirations to make the move to Nashville. While on a photo shoot at the couple’s Music City home in June of 2015 for her book, Balancing in Heels, Kristin told Elle magazine, that she’d like to make the Tennessee city her new home, “if all goes according to plan.” She added that “Jay hates L.A., and Chicago’s just not home.

Well, there are worse places to live. Jay’s a free agent, so he could still end up anywhere (unless his support for Trump is keeping the offers away), and Kristin can do whatever it is she does from anywhere (according to her Instagram profile, she’s got a new cookbook coming out next spring, so there’s that). Weather-wise, I am 100% #TeamNashville. Chicago is gorgeous, but those winters are brutal. To be honest, I’m curious to see where Jay ends up. If he goes back to Denver, the kids are going to enjoy (?) more cold winters. Sorry for all of the football talk, I go into “sports hibernation” from February until August and love to have the chance to talk football whenever I can. Thanks for indulging me.

    Bye Cutler!

  2. juice says:

    LOL at calling Chicago winters brutal (from a Canadian living in the depths of winter hell… still).

    • Amanduh says:

      Right???! It’s like minus 25 degrees Celsius (minus 10 ferenheight) with the wind chill this morning…wtf??!

      • Andrea says:

        At least the sun is back! Be happy, cold and sunny isn’t so bad! It’s not cold, snowing and dark.

      • Amanduh says:

        No sun at 5am at the bus stop (shout out to OCTranspo x) but I feel you Andrea!! That’s what I told my hubby when he moved here: yes, it’s beyond cold and your eyelashes freeze together sometimes, but when it’s sunny out???! Euphoric!!! The sun bounces off the snow and everything is brighter!!

    • pf says:

      Because of climate change Chicago did not have a single drop of snow ALL of January and February. It was so warm in Feb. people were grilling outside. Never ever happens. So while the East Coast gets all the snow, start thinking twice when you say Chicago gets brutal winters. That might be a thing of the past. Just like Jay Cutler.

      • Faun says:

        I live in the UP of Michigan and we’re closing in on 300 inches of snow – no global warming in sight here!

      • Jessa Blessa says:

        I’m originally from the U.P, now living in Australia. I do not miss those winters

  3. Millennial says:

    I’ve read he might not end up anywhere… at least not as first string. He’s a decent quarterback, but not a great one, and teams are more likely to want to give a new QB a chance than rely on a known entity that’s barely ever made it to the playoffs. All that being said, I think people gave him too hard a time, a lot of years his teams were garbage.

    It will be interesting to see if he decides to be backup somewhere. Or if he just retires. He’s made 100mil+ at this point.

  4. Tig says:

    You gotta love Bears fans. Never followed the Cavallari comments re Chicago very
    closely in the past, but clearly they didn’t sit too well with the Bears faithful. Some of the comments re this departure on other sites were hysterical.

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, people here are like “you said Chicago didn’t feel like home but now you say you’re going to miss it?” Don’t let the door hit you guys on the way out, lol.

      And her IG typo bugs. Your babies “were” born here, not “we’re” born here.

  5. Danielle says:

    Wait, a cookbook? That’s random. Why would anyone buy a cookbook from her?

    • Mandymc says:

      I think I read shortly after her third was born, that she makes her own baby formula. Maybe out of goats milk? Something like that. Sounded bizarre and possibly dangerous to a newborn.

  6. Cee says:

    Does he keep the 127 mil? How does that work?

  7. minx says:

    I’m in Chicago..
    Not sorry to see either of them go.

    • TheOtherOne says:

      Me too. I’m a Chicagoan and all I want to do is help them pack. All she ever did was bad mouth the city that paid your useless husband. Bye, Felicia.

      • Relli says:

        Yup, they never really did anything to endear themselves to the city and they are countless stories about Jay being rude to fans in person.

      • thebeachedwhale says:

        And take your unvaccinated children with you. One less thing for us to worry about.

    • Bridget says:

      I still can’t believe the Bears gave him that extension 3 years ago. Talk about a couple of people that Chicago isn’t going to miss.

  8. Kelly says:

    I’m from Illinois originally and I’m not sure there were too many tears shed when Cutler was released, based upon the facebook posts from high school friends. I think that Packers fans may be missing Cutler more than most Bears fans in the chance that the Bears get a competent quarterback.

    The Onion, which is based in Chicago but founded in Madison, WI, found Jay Cutler an irresistible subject. Here’s a slideshow of some of the highlights of their Cutler coverage

  9. blonde555 says:

    Saying goodbye but you don’t have a place to go? Smh. People move all of the time and don’t feel a need to broadcast it. See ya!

  10. Betsy says:

    Anti-vax freak. Bye.

  11. cupcakes4all says:

    Good Riddance!

  12. Jessica says:

    I’m a Packers fan. So I’ve had to sit through plenty of Bears games, waiting for when he gets hurt and has to exit the game so he can sit on the sidelines and do his vacant, poor me look.

    Obviously they’re leaving Chicago. They’ll have to take whatever scraps are offered to Jay, IF he is offered anything.

    If he comes to Cleveland I will seriously laugh my ass off. I watch my husband suffer year after year with this loser organization and that would just take the cake. I wouldn’t even want him as a back up b/c his attitude sucks. The guy should retire and let Kristin handle everything.

  13. HappyMom says:

    I find her so irritating.

  14. Caroline says:

    I’ve lived in Chicago since 1990. Kristin who?

  15. Nicole says:

    Please talk about football. I can’t watch the combine and draft alone. I mean that Alabama jerk that was all about himself in the injury line? Come on!

  16. Faun says:

    LOL @ the idea of Cutler not finding work because of his support of Trump – you think most GM’s and owners voted for Bernie?!

  17. Dumbledork says:

    Chicagoan here too. Not sad to see them go. Just wish it was three years ago.

  18. Neelyo says:

    Please don’t bring your unvaccinated children to NYC!

  19. ValiantlyVarnished says:

    As a Chicagoan I say, “don’t let the door hit you on the way out.” Kristen talked crap about Chicago more than once and its been clear for a long time that Jay no longer wanted to be here either. He basically phoned in every game he was in and then got injured. He was a prima donna who drove away good coaches. Chicago is not sad to see either of you leave. Wherever they wind up, their kids are unvaccinated so I feel sorry for any school they wind up in

  20. Mollie says:

    It’s not his support of Trump that is keeping him unsigned. It’s that he’s terrible. He makes horrible decisions.
