Reality star-turned-fashionista Kristin Cavallari praised her husband, former NFL quarterback Jay Cutler, for unclogging her milk ducts on national TV. But the viral response was quite a shocker for the mother of three.
Discussing her uncanny comments, Cavallari, 32, told E! News:
“I knew that it was gonna be a little controversial. I didn’t know that it would be as big as it has become.”
In a promo clip for an upcoming episode of her reality show, “Very Cavallari,” the former MTV star shared an unexpected revelation about Culter, 35, that left jaws dropped.
She said her husband once helped her out by clearing her “major clogged ducts” due to breastfeeding:
“Jay had to get them out for me, sucking harder than he’s ever sucked … and you know what? Saved my life.”

The entrepreneur later defended her husband by telling Extra:
“If you’ve had clogged ducts before, you know how painful it can be. I mean, they can get infected, and so Jay was just saving my life, all right?”
“He’s a good husband. Listen, he’s a really dedicated husband.”
The mom continued:
“By the way, since we talked about that, it’s incredibly common — I’ve had so many people come up to me and be like, ‘My husband had to do that, too.’
Like, unless you have been in that situation, you can’t judge, let me just tell you that.”
According to Very Well Family, plugged milk ducts are hard areas of the breasts where milk flow is obstructed, and they can cause severe pain and swelling.
Cavallari told Extra:
“Yeah, I’m putting my life out there, but we definitely — Jay and I have private things that are off limits. Certain things we just would never put out there.”
She explained why her children — Camden, 6, Jaxon, 4, and Saylor, 3, — aren’t on the show:
“I just want them to make that decision when they’re old enough if they want their lives plastered all over the place. They may want no part of it.”
“Very Cavallari” airs on E! on April 21 at 10 p.m.
