Well wow. Talk about getting your way by hook or by crook.

Kristin Cavallari is expecting a baby with her on-again, off-again boyfriend/fiance, Jay Cutler, and it looks like this time the marriage might be on. If you remember, Kristin and Jay dated for awhile before getting betrothed, and when push finally came to shove, engagement rings were given and Kristin had already picked out a wedding dress (oh, and gift-hopes were already registered, too), Cutler unceremoniously dropped Kristin like a hot potato. Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we?:

She got dumped,” says a … source. “She’s absolutely devastated. She can’t believe this is happening.”

The couple, who were planning a spring wedding, became engaged in April [2011], when Cutler popped the question in Mexico. They had been spending much of their time recently in Chicago, and Cavallari had planned to move there during the upcoming football season.

“She was planning her dream wedding, the date was set, the location – everything was set,” the source says. “She’s in shock that the dream wedding she was planning is going to end this way.”

Just a week ago, Cavallari Tweeted about her engagement party. “Thx to all my amazing friends for making my engagement party a blast last night!” she wrote.

In a quick change, however, after appearing as a contestant on Dancing With the Stars late last year, Kristin was said to have lured Cutler back into her life, confirmed that the engagement was back on, and after what may or may not have been a clever ploy to lock Jay into her life, Kristin ended up pregnant. In a joint statement issued to People, Jay and Kristin state:

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

Awesome, right? Convenient, too! I mean, I’m not saying that she did this solely to marry into the NFL family, because guys, it’s just not 1812 anymore where you have to marry the chick you knocked up. And Kristin probably knows that. But it just seems awful damned convenient that after mourning her breakup publicly for months, that the two end up reconciling and within a matter of weeks, Kristin’s pregnant. But hey, who am I to judge. You’ve got super-couples like Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, and Seal and Heidi Klum breaking up left and right. None of us know anything about the ways of love anymore, guys, seriously.

So, congratulations are in order one way or the other, girl. Even if things don’t work out with your token football player, you still have that darling little baby to keep you company for the rest of your days on earth. As for your re-engagement announcement back in November, way to get your man. But don’t get jump the gun and too excited – you’re not down the aisle yet. I mean, look at the other NFL star that knocked up a Hollywood lady: Superbowl-bound Tom Brady. He impregnated Bridget Moynahan and before she had a spare second to enter her third trimester, he’d dropped her and started shacking up with Gisele Bundchen. And then he had a baby with her and married her.

Don’t be caught unaware, girl.
