Kristin Cavallari admitted in an interview with Fox News Thursday that she is against vaccinating her kids, not unlike the famously anti-vaccine Jenny McCarthy.
Speaking with Lisa Kennedy on Thursday, Cavallari made the surprising admission when Kennedy jokingly made reference to McCarthy’s controversial views.
“We didn’t vaccinate. I read too many books about autism and there’s studies… Now, one in 88 boys is autistic and that’s a scary statistic,” the star said.
Kristin Cavallari is currently expecting another boy with husband Jay Cutler.
The pregnant former Hills star further explained her choice the following morning and discussed the “harsh response” she’s received as a result of her comments.
“You know, it’s not something that I wanted to publicly come out and say… I was in an interview when this came up and it wasn’t what I was expecting," she said.
“Listen, to each their own,” she added. “I understand both sides of it."
"I’ve ready too many books about autism and there are scary statistics out there. It’s a personal choice, and, you know, if you’re really concerned ... get them vaccinated.”
