Jay Cutler is now a Papa Bear.

Kristin Cavallari, the fiancee of the Chicago Bears quarterback, delivered Camden Jack Cutler on Wednesday morning, according to a tweet by the new mother.

"We are thrilled to welcome Camden Jack Cutler into the world. He was born this morning weighing 7lbs 9oz. Everyone is great!," Cavallari tweeted.

Her publicist, Jack Ketsoyan, confirmed the birth.

Cavallari, a reality TV star, and Cutler had put off their wedding until after the baby was born. They started dating in the fall of 2010 and Cutler proposed on a vacation in Cabo San Lucas in April 2011.

Cutler and the Bears open their preseason schedule Thursday at Soldier Field against the Denver Broncos.
