Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler, who were the epitome of couple goals for many, after their hit show Very Cavallari, announced their separation five months back. This couple has been together for ten long years and share three kids together.
While their news about separating broke the hearts of millions, Kristin finally opened up about what drove them to take this decision. She reveals that the decision of splitting was not taken overnight. They have been struggling for years to save their marriage, and did not wish for it to end. She even adds, “It was the hardest decision I’ve ever made.”
“I always thought it was interesting when people would refer to us as ‘couple goals’. I was like, ‘If you guys only knew.'” Kristin said.
Their falling marriage took a toll on their filming procedure for their show. She mentioned “we definitely kept a lot of stuff private, producers saw stuff, but they didn’t put it in the show — which is good, because I don’t want my kids to ever [see that].”
Having said that, Kristin even mentions that she is in good terms with her ex-husband, “I still care so much about him and talk to him almost every day,” she says. “We have three kids together. He’s going to be in my life forever.”
When asked about what went awry in their happy marriage, she said, “Every relationship has their stuff. I met Jay when I was 23. I was a baby. Jay and I had so much love for each other, but we grew up. When you work at something for so many years and nothing’s changing, I think you have to just make a decision. We all want to be happy.”
Kristin further added, “A year ago I felt like I was drowning.” She has been putting everybody else before her, and thus is planning to shift the focus on herself and on her growth for the time being.
Other than that, she also revealed that she is enjoying being a single mom of three. “I want to be strong for them, and I want to be the best mom that I can be for them,” she says. “Of course three kids by yourself is a lot, I’m not going to lie. But now that our time is split, I just appreciate it so much more. Every moment that I have with them I just want to love on them and be with them.”
