Cavallari shared her marriage advice in a blog post for Cricket’s Circle. “It’s so important to make time for each other, even if it’s just waiting to eat dinner after the kids go to bed,” she explained. “And even if it’s takeout, light a candle and make an effort to connect. Also, you gotta have sex — men need it, and it’s important for the relationship. It doesn’t have to be all the time, but you have to get it in there sometimes!”

Cavallari also told
Us at the time that she and Cutler were “completely done” expanding their family. “I can’t imagine having another one. We got three babies in, like, four years. The baby fever is gone,” she admitted. “We feel like such a complete family. Even if Saylor was a boy I would have been done. But now, especially that we have a girl, we’re good. I don’t want to rock the boat. It feels so perfect and so right that why mess with that?”
