"Jay had to get them out for me. … Sucking harder than he’s ever sucked," Kristin Cavallari recently shared about her clogged milk ducts
Having husband Jay Cutler unclog her milk ducts is just Very Cavallari for the reality star.
After it was revealed that the NFL star, 35, once sucked “harder than he’s ever sucked” before to relieve his wife Kristin Cavallari’s breasts, she recently responded to the viral fan reaction, telling E! News that she had a feeling her comment would cause a stir.
“I knew that it was gonna be a little controversial,” Cavallari, 32, said. “I didn’t know that it would be as big as it has become.”
In a clip from the upcoming mid-season episode of her E! series Very Cavallari, the mother of three told her friends that Cutler once helped her out when hard lumps formed in the narrow milk ducts of her breasts.
However, The Hills alum stressed that one should walk a mile in her shoes before placing judgment.
“Listen, unless you have breastfed and you’ve had clogged ducts, you cannot judge! That’s all I’m gonna say,” Cavallari told E! News.

Speaking with Extra about her milk ducts comment, the Uncommon James creator applauded her husband’s act of kindness.
“If you’ve had clogged ducts before, you know how painful it can be. I mean, they can get infected, and so Jay was just saving my life, alright?” Cavallari said.
“He’s a good husband. Listen, he’s a really dedicated husband,” she added.
Having clogged milk ducts and mastitis, an inflammation of breast tissue that can involve infections, is actually pretty common among new moms.
“By the way, since we talked about that, it’s incredibly common — I’ve had so many people come up to me and be like, ‘My husband had to do that, too,’ ” Cavallari told Extra.
“Like, unless you have been in that situation, you can’t judge, let me just tell you that,” she noted.
