The site said her husband, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, arrived there shortly afterward, and that their three children were not with her.

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

In December, Cavallari learned that her older brother, Michael, was found dead after having gone missing in Utah on Nov. 27.
