Jessie James Decker on Being a Mom of Two: There’s ‘a Lot More Action’
“It’s really great, the dynamic between all four of us, having one more addition,” says the singer, 27, whose Christmas EP, “This Christmas,” debuts Dec. 4. “Now that there are two babies in the house, it’s a lot more action!”
That action includes Daddy, New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker, bonding over football games and making room for “tummy time” with baby Eric, 9 weeks, while mom keeps 19-month-old daughter Vivianne Rose in on the fun — all while functioning on very little sleep.
“Every now and then Vivi may try to get a little bit of attention when I’m breastfeeding him, but other than that. she’s been a really big help,” says James Decker. “She’ll help throw the diapers away or she’ll help bring us a diaper. She’s trying to play that big sister role.”
And with Decker, 28, in football season, family outings include trips to the stadium.
“I love fall and football season. It’s just so much fun, there’s so much excitement,” says James Decker. “Vivi is yelling touchdown and cheering him on. I just love it.”
As for whether she thinks they’ll expand the family anytime soon: “This number feels good,” says the budding fashion designer.
“I’ve been pregnant for two years so I just want to have a break. But ask me in two years and I might be pregnant again. Knowing this one, he just blinks at me and I’m knocked up!”
