As the one-year anniversary of her brother’s death is nearing, Kristin Cavallari is opening up. Michael Cavallari was found dead on December 10 of last year.
The mother of three told E! News that the past year has been a roller coaster. “I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t hard.” She said that her family has made plans to be together on the actual anniversary so they can lean on each other.
“I’m going to be with my family on the actual day, which hopefully will help,” she said. “Talking about it is probably the most important thing so I’m lucky I have a great support system with my immediate family, with Jay [Cutler] and with my parents as well.”
Kristin is looking to her mom for support, since she lost her brother at a young age as well. “She’s been really great for me to lean on and go to as someone who truly understands what I’m going through as well.”
Amidst the sad memories, Kristin and her family have a lot of happy things to look forward to–her daughter’s first birthday is right around the corner.
