When Kristin Cavallari talks about husband Jay Cutler, we listen – even if she is pretty much just repeating what she’s already said about the Bears star.

Cavallari was interviewed by the Bears' Kyle Long on behalf of Michigan Avenue magazine. You might remember Michigan Avenue as the magazine that featured a fashionable Cutler on its cover months after he was traded to the Bears in 2009. Cavallari appears on the cover of the fall fashion issue, which hits newsstands Monday.

“Jay is a great dad,” Cavallari told Long. “He’s incredibly hands-on, and he has been since day one. It’s so sweet seeing him with Camden and Jax, and there’s nothing sexier than seeing your husband as a great dad. I couldn’t ask for a better partner in this situation.”

Cavallari also discussed how many children she wants, her jewelry and shoe line and her thoughts on Chicago. The couple has split time between the Chicago area, the Los Angeles area and Nashville.

“I love Chicago because my mom is here, along with that whole side of my family,” Cavallari said. “It’s a great city. The people are so friendly. There’s always lots to do, and the lake is absolutely beautiful. We like going to Rustic House for date night, Girl & the Goat, and Summer House, which is pretty new—it reminds me of Santa Monica. And because I’m such a health nut, Karyn’s Fresh Corner is great for smoothies and quick stuff, and Mercadito has great tacos, so we go there a lot. I like to shop in the Gold Coast; I call it the Beverly Hills of Chicago.”
