Jay Cutler: Newborn daughter ‘cooperated’ with timing of arrival


With the Chicago Bears already facing a short week as it prepares for a Thanksgiving night showdown with the Green Bay Packers, Jay Cutler joked that the timing of his newborn daughter’s arrival was perfect.

“It could’ve been worse,” the Bears quarterback said Tuesday, smiling, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “She cooperated a little bit for us.”

Cutler and wife Kristin Cavallari welcomed the couple’s third child, Saylor James, on Monday afternoon. The Bears quarterback wisely pointed out that his wife obviously was the one who had the most work to do.

“Luckily, Kristin has done about 99 percent of it,” he said. “My one percent I don’t think is really going to drag me down that much.”

Saylor James, interestingly named after a dog, joins 3-year-old Camden Jack and 18-month-old Jaxon Wyatt in the Cutler-Cavallari brood.
