No glitzy date night needed!
Kristin Cavallari can’t wait to celebrate her first Valentine’s Day as a new mom at home with her Chicago Bears quarterback fiancé Jay Cutler and their six-month-old son Camden.
“I like cooking better, so I’ll probably make dinner, and we’ll have a really romantic evening once the baby goes to bed,” the reality star, 26, tells me during Gillette’s Kiss and Tell National Experiment at Pioneer Court in Chicago. “I don’t think we’re going to do anything that exciting. It’s just about easy and simple and being in our own bed. [laughs]”
Making the most of their alone time together has become a priority since their son was born.
“Now you have to make time for the relationship,” she says. “Before, it was all about the two of us, so that was easy. But now, the time we spend together is more meaningful because we don’t have as much time together, so when you make time, you want to make the most of it.”
Their favorite date night tradition?
“Well, we’re a little bit late to the party, but we’ve been watching Homeland season two — we’re in the middle of season two. That’s what we’ve been doing together lately is watching that.”
The only thing Kristin requests is that her man shave. Uh-oh — he was a bit stubbly when this photo is taken this week during the Chinese Laundry by Kristin Cavallari event at Von Maur department store in Lombard, Ill., just outside of Chicago.
“I prefer a clean-shaven face,” she says. “When you kiss a guy and they have stubble, my chin always ends up really red and kind of raw. [laughs]”
She would know!
