KRISTIN Cavallari has called 2020 “one of the best years of her life”, despite her split with husband Jay Cutler.
Throwing shade at the former football player, the 34-year-old celebrated her birthday in style while telling her social media followers she felt “back to her old self”.
While last year saw the actress split from husband Jay, 37, and the cancellation of her reality TV series Very Cavallari, Kristin looked back on it positively.
Posting a picture of herself smiling during her birthday meal, she wrote: “I feel like I’m back to my old self and it feels really damn good.”
She continued by telling fans that while it had been “crazy”, there was no doubt the tumultuous year had been “one of the best” yet.
“33 was a crazy year to say the least,” added the TV personality. “The ups and downs, highs and lows.
“But I can honestly say it was one [of] the best years of my life. Lots of growth and opportunity.”
The Instagram post was flooded with messages from friends and fans, congratulating Kristin on her birthday and wishing her the best for 2021.
It wasn’t all bad news for Kristin last year, as she started her new romance with comedian Jeff Dye, who she took a vacation with to Mexico.
Kristin was only reunited with her ex for Halloween, where they and their children Camden, 8, Jaxon, 6, and Saylor, 4.
However, they spent time apart over Christmas – with Kristin keeping the children at home with her while Jay visited his family.
The couple filed for divorce after seven years of marriage, citing “inappropriate marital misconduct” in the legal proceedings.
Sources told The Sun that Kristin and Jay fought endlessly over work issues, which may have been a large contributing factor to their split.
The source pointed out that Kristin grew up with “lots of privileged kids” and doesn’t want to set a bad example for her children.
Their divorce turned nasty quickly when the reality star claimed her NFL husband had been “controlling and manipulative” throughout the marriage.
