Bound to confuse celebrity-couple-watchers everywhere, Jay Cutler has said that he and his fiancee, Kristin Cavallari, never actually broke up.
Cutler, 28, announced this revelation while thanking fans for their supportive responses to the news that the couple are now expecting their first child.
"We couldn't be more excited," Cutler wrote. "We don't usually comment on our relationship but for the record I never broke up with Kristin. Its unfortunate some people are saying hurtful things during such a joyous moment in our life."
Cavallari retweeted the remark, presumably to show her agreement. In July, it was reported that the 25-year-old mom-to-be and NFL player Cutler, who had been dating for 10 months at the time, had broken up and called off their short engagement.
By October, they seemed to have rekindled their romance, right around the time Cutler was spotted cheering for Cavallari as she competed on "Dancing With the Stars." A month later, Cavallari tweeted that they were engaged again, noting, "this time it's official."
"Sometimes, in order for things to get better, they have to end," Cavallari dished to People magazine in December. "Even if it's momentarily."
The reality star continued, "We didn't break up because of love lost. We loved each other just as much as we always did when we were together."
And now, baby'll make three. By the way, since Cavallari's pointed it out - if you saw her writing about drinks not long ago, she has an explanation.
"I tweeted that I had margaritas a few weeks ago to throw ppl off cuz I had gotten a couple tweets about my pregnancy," she tweeted Tuesday. "I didn't really drink!"
