Cavallari shocked many of her fans and followers when she announced she would be getting a divorce from Jay Cutler. Cavallari and Cutler, a former NFL player, first began dating in 2010. As CBS shared, the couple got married just a few years later in 2013.

For years now Cavallari’s opinions and beliefs surrounding vaccinations have led to controversial stories and headlines. Cavallari and Cutler have made the decision not to vaccinate their children, and though she might not love doing it, Cavallari has explained herself.  

Rolling Stone recapped her interview with Fox News when she spoke about her decision. As Cavallari put it, “I understand both sides of it. I’ve read too many books about autism and there’s some scary statistics out there. It’s our personal choice.”

While science has proven extensively that vaccines do not cause autism, according to the CDC, it appears that doesn’t concern the couple. Others who critique the anti-vax movement have also pointed out that autism is not a bad thing, and assuming it is the worst thing that could happen to a child is dangerous, as QZ reported. Though people and science might not agree with their choice, Cavallari and Cutler don’t seem to mind.
