“We are thrilled to announce we are expecting our first child together,” the couple announced to People.com. “It’s an amazing time in our life and we can’t wait to meet the new addition to our growing family.”

They began dating in late 2010 and became engaged in the spring of 2011. Cutler broke off the engagement over the summer, then the couple reunited in the fall.

The Bears got off to a 7-3 start last fall amid reports that Cutler was showing signs of maturing (when he wasn’t cursing out a coach) after his 2011 playoffs controversy. Then he broke his thumb, underwent surgery and missed the last six games of the season. In early December, Cavallari tweeted that they were engaged again, an announcement that left Cutler scrambling a bit.
