The Cutler family is expanding.
Kristin Cavallari confirmed the news, first reported by eonline.com, that she and the Bears' Jay Cutler are expecting their second child. The couple has a 14-month-old son named Camden.
"Thank you for all the love!!" Cavallari tweeted Wednesday. "We are so excited for Camden to be a big brother!"
Cutler, 30, and Cavallari, 26, got married in Nashville in June. Cavallari has been very open in interviews about the fact that she wanted another child soon.
"We know we want another one close in age to Camden and we're at the point where we're both ready," Cavallari told E! News in September. "Before Camden was born, I thought I'd be pregnant again by the time he was six months, but I definitely wasn't ready. Now, I'm finally ready."
It's unclear how many children Cutler and Cavallari would like to have. The number could depend on whether baby No. 2 is a boy or girl.
"It's funny, before we had Camden I was like, 'Yeah, four kids, no problem," Cavallari said during an appearance this month on WCIU's "You & Me This Morning." "Now I'm like 'It's a lot of work.' So we might have another one and see how it goes, depending if it's a boy or a girl. If it's a boy, maybe try for another girl."
Besides motherhood, Cavallari has been focusing on her shoe collection, Chinese Laundry, and her jewelry collection for Glamboutique.com. She told me in Sept. that she prefered these business ventures over pursuing acting because they weren't as time-consuming and allowed her to spend more time with with her son and husband.
The family splits its time between the Chicago area, Nashville and Los Angeles.
