Jay Cutler?s family and wife

Jason Isaac Cutler was born to now ex-military man Mr. Cutler and his wife Ann. Though spotted with his famous bodybuilder son on countless occasions, Jay's father has chosen to not disclose his name. Jay's parents divorced when he was just 4-year-old. Hence, he grew up primarily with his single father and siblings. However, despite the divorce, Cutler's mother, Ann, was an active part of their lives and maintained a healthy relationship with her ex-husband. When Jay dreamed to become a bodybuilder, his mother ensured he was getting the necessary nutrients irrespective of how much they cost.

As for his siblings, the 4x Olympia has six brothers and sisters. His eldest sister's name is Kelly Coughlin. Keith Cutler, the founder of the company construction company Cutler Brothers, is Jay's older brother. Interestingly, Keith was Jay's first boss as the bodybuilder had landed his first job at his brother's company at the age of 11. Jay's second older sister is Ann Fleming. Just like their father, Ann, too, prefers to stay away from the limelight. Jay's third and youngest sister is Joyce Cutler, who works as a mortgage loan officer in Massachusetts. Cutler has two more brothers, however, their identity has never been revealed.

During his high school days, Cutler started dating a girl named Kerry. She also supported his dream to be a bodybuilder. After dating for ten years, the duo tied the knot in 1998. Unfortunately, after ten years of marriage, the couple ended their 20-year-long relationship in 2009. Following the separation from his now ex-wife, Cutler has been dating model and entertainer, Angie Feliciano. While the date when they started dating or tied the knot is unknown, Cutler is allegedly married to the model now. Though married twice, Cutler has no kids, yet.

Bodybuilding Career of Cutler

In 1992, Cutler entered his first competition, which was the Gold's Gym Worcester Bodybuilding Championship. He took home the second-place medal from the event. The following year, Jay took his first overall win at the 1993 Iron Bodies Invitational.

In the 2000s, Jay emerged as one of the top bodybuilders in the world. He won the Arnold Classic championship three years in a row from 2002 to 2004. People now saw him as the rightful heir to Ronnie Coleman?s throne. Cutler would finish 2nd behind Ronnie four times before picking up his maiden Sandow trophy in 2006. In 2001, Cutler found himself in the?middle of a controversy?as he tested positive for the use of banned diuretics at Mr. Olympia. After a legal battle, Cutler could regain his second-place finish at the event.

After 2006, Jay won the 2007 Mr. Olympia title as well but could not win the 2008 event. In 2009,?he became only the third bodybuilder?ever to win the Mr. Olympia title in non-consecutive years. Jay defeated Dexter Jackson to lift the trophy. In 2010, Cutler defeated Phil Heath to win his final Mr. Olympia title. In 2011, Phil bested Cutler for the win.
