Kristin Cavallari Hospitalized After Car Accident: Publicist

Kristin Cavallari was hospitalized after she was involved in a car accident on Thursday, her publicist confirmed to NBC Chicago.

The reality star and fashion designer, who is married to Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, was hit by another driver in Chicago, according to her publicist.

“She is doing fine and will be discharged from the hospital shortly,” her publicist said.

No other information about the accident was immediately available.

Earlier this month, Cavallari introduced her fans to her new daughter, Saylor James. She shared on her app the first photo of the newborn's face.

“Here is my little angel Saylor,” Cavallari wrote alongside the photo of little girl donning a pink headband. “I couldn’t have asked for a better baby. We’re very lucky to have such a sweet, easy girl, especially since she’s the third one!”

Cavallari has said that her daughter's birth has given her strength since the recent loss of her brother, Michael.

Michael Cavallari's body was found Dec. 10 in a steep and rocky area in an isolated part of southern Utah, nearly two weeks after a rancher found his car abandoned near the area.

"2015 brought my sweet, baby girl but it also took my brother's life,"  Kristin Cavallari wrote in a New Year's message on Instagram. "Hoping for no extreme highs and lows this year. Happy new year, everyone."
