Kristin Cavallari Says Her Husband's Rumored Vasectomy Is 'Reversible': True or Not?

The "Laguna Beach" alum said she couldn't imagine having any more kids, then joked that her husband's rumored vasectomy is "reversible."

Former reality star Kristin Cavallari has got a lot on her plate these days. Within the last few months, she's moved to Nashville with her posse—NFL quarterback husband Jay Cutler and their three kids, sons Camden, 4, and Jaxon, 3, and daughter Saylor, 19 months—she's launched a jewelry line, and most recently, she announced a partnership with natural makeup line Savvy Minerals by Young Living. But one thing this multi-tasking mama is most definitely NOT planning to add into the mix anytime soon is Baby #4.

"We're completely done," she told Us Weekly. "I can't imagine having another one! We had three babies in, like, four years, so the baby fever is gone. We feel like such a complete family, especially now that we have a girl. I don't want to rock the boat. It feels so perfect...why mess with that?"

She's got a point there! Although, never say never. Because not only did "The Hills" alum rave about Jay being the most hands-on dad on the planet—"He's changing diapers, he's getting them dressed, he's even doing Saylor's hair"—she also backpedaled on a statement she gave to E! News last year about Cutler getting a vasectomy.

"I mean, things are reversible," she quipped.

Hmm. Sounds like the busy mom may be leaving that door open just a crack after all!

But is it true that vasectomies are reversible?

"The procedure is technically reversible," says Kevin Campbell, M.D., a urologist with The Urology Group in Cincinnati. "But there's no guarantee a reversal will be successful." And while there are other ways for a man to father a child post-vasectomy—via In-vitro fertilization, for instance—both reversal and IVT are expensive and potentially time-consuming. So, Dr. Campbell suggests couples are absolutely sure they don't want to have any more children before undergoing permanent birth control like a vasectomy.
