Kristin Cavallari and husband Jay Cutler attend the JDRF LA Imagine Gala in Los Angeles earlier this year.
Kristin Cavallari is mourning the loss of her brother Michael, but she is getting help from her newborn daughter, Saylor.
The reality star posted an adorable photo of her 3-week-old baby’s tiny feet along with the heartbreaking caption: “My little angel, Saylor. She has been my light throughout this whole thing and has given me so much strength. Thank you baby girl for coming when u did.”
The MTV star’s brother, 30, was confirmed dead in Utah after a two-week search. Sheriff Steve White of Grand County, Utah revealed that Michael may have died from exposure to the frigid temperatures.

“We want to thank everyone for their love, support and prayers during this very difficult time. We have just been informed by the authorities my brother’s body has been found,” Kristin, 28, said in a statement when the news was released.
“This is a very painful time and we are still processing it all. We kindly ask everyone please respect our privacy during our time of grieving.”
Kristin Cavallari posted a childhood photo of her and her brother Michael to her Instagram after he was found dead. “My heart is in a million pieces. Mikey, I could always count on you to make me laugh. You had such a good heart and will be forever missed. I’m at a loss for words but I know u are in a better place and finally at peace. I love u so much RIP”
Earlier she shared a photo of the siblings as kids writing, “My heart is in a million pieces.”
Michael went missing on Nov. 27 after abandoning his car off a highway in Grand County. A day earlier he had been arrested in Orange County for making criminal threats.
Saylor is Cavallari’s third child with husband, Chicago Bear’s quarterback Jay Cutler.
