Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler: A baby on board that bikini bod

Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler are expecting a baby

Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears quarterback and Kristin Cavallari's on and off and on beau, broke his thumb in November and the Bears saw their playoff hopes go up in smoke. Who cares! Cutler is going to be a father!

Cavallari, the reality TV star with the great bikini body, is having a little bitty -- or possibly very big  -- baby.  (Dad is 6-foot-3, 233 pounds.)

The couple became engaged in April. Then they became disengaged in July. Then, they became re-engaged in November.

That's right around the time that Cutler suffered that very unfortunate boo-boo in a game against the San Diego Chargers -- which the Bears won in spite of Cutler's fourth-quarter injury.  Cutler was sidelined for weeks following the injury.

They also got back together just about a month after Cavallari was eliminated after a three-week stint on "Dancing With the Stars."  As The Times reported, many fans of the dance competition were not happy that she'd been booted. Neither was Cavallari.

"It's clearly not a dance competition," she told Us Weekly at the time.

Suddenly, they both had a lot of extra time on their hands, and mutual comfort was clearly in order.

Consequently, a wedding is pending, and Cavallari will be looking for those jeans with the big stretchy panel in front. She made the baby announcement to People, saying she and Cutler were "thrilled." No word on the due date.
