Eric Decker’s Wife Is Changing More of Son’s Diapers: ‘It Always Works That Way’

09/21/2015 at 04:10 PM ET

They just welcomed son Eric Thomas II two weeks ago, but NFL star Eric Decker says wife Jessie James Decker has clocked in more time on diaper duty.

“With my daughter, I would say it was me,” the New York Jets wide receiver told PEOPLE of 18-month-old daughter Vivianne Rose, Thursday at the Samsung Hope For Children Gala.

“Now with the little boy, for sure her. It always works that way, with the dad and the little girl and the mom and the little boy. But all the kids are doing great, and it’s just so fun.”

Fun — and a new adventure! “It’s so different, having two compared to one, because the dynamic is so crazy,” says Decker, 28.

Eric and Jessie James Decker are only a week into their new life as the parents of two kids, and the family dynamic is “great already,” he told PEOPLE.

Well, mostly.

“I guess, with two kids who aren’t sleeping through the night makes it a little more hard — but other than that the dynamic is great already,” Decker, 28, said at Cantor Fitzgerald Charity Day in New York City Friday, where he was supporting the EJD Foundation.

“Obviously [newborn son Eric Thomas Decker ll is] only a week old but [17-month-old daughter] Vivianne, our oldest, is just very nurturing and very sweet with her brother.”

Inside Jessie James Decker’s Nursery: ‘I Always Wanted a Sports Theme’

07/29/2015 at 08:00 AM ET

With her second child — a son! — due in September, Jessie James Decker has finally put the finishing touches on her baby boy’s nursery.

And the soon-to-be mom of two has scored a major touchdown with the vintage sleep space, designed by Decker with the help of Joss & Main‘s style director.

“I knew I always wanted a sports-theme room. As soon as I got pregnant with him and knew it was a boy, I just felt like it fit his personality!” Decker, 27, tells PEOPLE.

“I think when people do the animal themes, they are cute and all, but it just didn’t feel like this little guy. He feels like a cool sports dude already.”

Jessie James Decker: Why My Second Pregnancy Has Been ‘Completely Different’

04/13/2015 at 12:15 PM ET

Pregnancy has been as effortless as it looks for Jessie James Decker.

Despite it being her second child — the country singer and her husband, New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker, are already parents to 12-month-old daughter Vivianne Rose — everything has been “completely different” for the mom-to-be.

“It could not be more opposite than it was with Vivianne,” James Decker, 27, told PEOPLE at the Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 premiere in New York City on Saturday. “The first time I threw up every day, I was really sick, really exhausted.”

She adds, “This one, I have more energy and I don’t feel as sick, no cravings. The only way I really know I’m pregnant is I feel this bump growing and a baby moving around.”
