Here’s What Made Kristin Cavallari Realize She Was a Selfish Person

Talk about a revelation.

Kristin Cavallari, who has been on TV ever since she was in high school, is opening up about finding herself. Speaking with Modeliste Magazine, the Laguna Beach alum admits having children really put her life into perspective.

“When you finally have kids, you realize how selfish you are. I think we are naturally selfish beings. When you have kids, that can kind of be a shock at first,” Cavallari, who has two sons and an infant daughter with football player Jay Cutler, says. “I think just trying to make time for yourself is very hard. Especially now that I have three, finding that time can be very difficult.”

“The most rewarding part about having kids is there’s just so much more love in your life,” she explains. “I finally feel like I have a real identity. I feel like I have a purpose here in life now. I’m a mom to these three amazing little babies and my whole world just kind of opened up.”

However, being a working mom is hard. Though she’s no longer on a reality series, the 29-year-old designer confesses that her job does get in the way of family time.

“I think the hardest part of being a working mom is that I miss my kids a lot,” she says. “I live in Chicago, but my work is always in New York or LA, so I always have to travel for my job. That usually means I’m gone for a couple of days at a time, but FaceTime helps a lot.”
