Kristin Cavallari is packing away her maternity clothes for good. The Laguna Beach alum says she and husband Jay Cutler are done having kids, and that it’s her NFL star husband’s turn to take one for the team. In an interview with Sirius XM’s Conversations with Maria Menounos, Kristin said it’s time for Jay to take care of their birth control situation.
“We’re taking permanent [birth control] measures. We’ll just leave it at that.”
Based on Cavallari’s comment, it sure sounds like a vasectomy is in Cutler’s future.
Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler are parents to three young children: Camden, 3, Jaxon, 22 months, and Saylor, 4 months. In her interview, Kristin said she feels that after birthing three babies back to back, she has done more than her share when it comes to the couple’s family planning.
“My philosophy is, we have to push the babies out. We are the ones who have to go through everything. So you can do one little thing and get snipped. [I’ve] pushed three babies out the old hoo-ha. I’ve done enough.”
Kristin Cavallari has been a very vocal mom, but not everyone agrees with her philosophies. The former MTV star, who just published her lifestyle book, Balancing In Heels, is anti-vaccine. And last week, Kristin made headlines for her controversial philosophy on baby formula. In her book, Cavallari wrote that once she stopped breastfeeding each of her children, she put her kids on a homemade goat’s milk formula. Kristin revealed that goat’s milk is “the closest thing out there to human breast milk” and is more easily digested than cow’s or soy milk.
“Giving goat’s milk to children is popular in Europe and other parts of the world. Goat’s milk is not enough, though, so Jay and I, along with our pediatrician, came up with a formula recipe for our kids.”
According to Today.com, Kristin Cavallari’s homemade goat’s milk baby formula recipe has now been deleted from People magazine’s website after it garnered a rash of complaints. In the now-removed People piece, Cavallari said she wants to avoid “heavily processed store-bought formula” and has turned to goat’s milk because her kids have sensitivities to cow’s milk.
But Cavallari’s homemade baby formula, which contains maple syrup, blackstrap molasses, cod-liver oil, and powdered goat’s milk, goes against the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation that parents should not give babies’ cow’s or goat’s milk until after the child turns 1. Kristin said she has never told anyone else what to do with their children, and she believes in the formula and is simply doing what is best for her own kids.
In addition to her formula philosophy, Kristin Cavallari has spoken out about her anti-vaccine stance. In an appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, Cavallari said the no-vax route is “the best decision” for her children. When a viewer asked Kristin how she can “knowingly support the spread of potentially deadly diseases by not vaccinating your children,” Cavallari had a fast answer.
“Here’s the thing: At the end of the day, I’m just a mom. I’m trying to make the best decision for my kid. There are very scary statistics out there regarding what is in vaccines and what they cause — asthma, allergies, ear infections, all kinds of things. And we feel like we’re making the best decision for our kids.”
