11/13/2015 at 01:30 PM ET

Jessie James Decker is keeping it real.

The singer-songwriter has always been open with her fans on social media — especially when it comes to motherhood.

From posting breastfeeding pics with her newborn son Eric Thomas Decker II to sharing her postpartum pooch on Instagram, the “Lights Down Low” crooner has regularly offered an unedited lens into the world of stretch marks and c-section scars from her point of view.

“I am so glad that I was able to show mommies what a real body looks like after baby,” James Decker, 27, tells PEOPLE exclusively of her decision to post candid shots on social media. “I have my scar and pooch, and 90 percent of the time I look a mess!”

11/06/2015 at 08:15 AM ET

Jessie James Decker is loving spending time with her “chill” baby boy Eric Thomas II, but with two under 2 now, there also comes a bit of chaos.

“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 Deckerbonding 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.”

“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.”

Jessie James Decker Opens Up About Pregnancy: ‘I Loved Breastfeeding the First Time Around’

08/24/2015 at 12:05 PM ET

Jessie James Decker is a seasoned pro when it comes to motherhood, so she’s ready for anything and everything with her second child.

The 27-year-old singer and designer — already mom to daughter Vivianne Rose, 16 months — says in the September issue of American Baby magazine that her second pregnancy has been “smoother” than her first.

“With my daughter, Vivianne, I had horrible morning sickness. I threw up every day, sometimes twice, for five months, which then made me insanely hungry,” James Decker says.

“I’d stuff my face to try not to feel nauseated, and I gained 55 lbs. On my 5’1″ frame, that was brutal! This time has been much smoother. I sometimes even forget I’m pregnant except for all the moving around he’s doing in there!”
