In a celebrity interview with The Knot, Cavallari opened up about her third wedding anniversary with the NFL player. “We went to dinner at one of our favorite spots in Chicago called Blackbird, we had a four-course meal and a bottle of wine. I was a happy girl,” Cavallari said. Evidence of the joyous occasion was shown on Instagram, where Cavallari posted a photo of herself blowing a kiss at Cutler, captioned, “Happy anniversary to my man!”

This happy celebrity news has us realizing that reality TV star Kristin Cavallari and Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler know how to make a long-lasting relationship work. Cupid discusses below.

A Broken Engagement

Prior to the 2013 wedding between Cavallari and Cutler, the celebrity couple faced their own set of challenges. The couple got engaged in April 2011, but broke it off three months later. However, their split didn’t last long seeing as they were back together in December of that year. Cavallari detailed the reasons for their split in her book Balancing in Heels, stating, “I always go after what I want in life, with men or otherwise, and I never settle,” she went on to add, “If something doesn’t feel right, I act on it. It’s just who I’ve always been.” Though being apart from the love of her life was difficult, Cavallari was adamant that things “needed to change,” and that Cutler would only take her seriously if she ended the relationship. After months of couple’s therapy, which she states, “opened up our eyes to the other person’s perspective,” Cavallari and Cutler were able to get right back on track.

A Baby On the Way

A month following their reunion, Cavallari and Cutler announced that they were expecting their first child! Cavallari went on to give birth to their son, Camden Jack, in August 2012. In a statement to People, Cavallari said,  “We definitely weren’t ready to get married then and so we put everything on hold and we ended up having the baby before.” Despite being a busy mother of one at the time, the celebrity couple made their union official on June 7, 2013 and were wed in Nashville, where they had a “not huge” and intimate ceremony the following day. Cavallari and Cutler went on to celebrate their honeymoon in Italy and traveled along the world-famous Amalfi Coast. According to The Knot, Cavallari’s favorite honeymoon memory took place in Tuscany, “we went for a hot air balloon ride early one morning,” Cavallari said, “and it was the most beautiful and exhilarating experience I’ve ever had.”
