Jessie James Decker has more to say about her children’s athletic physiques, which lit up Instagram over the Thanksgiving holiday.
After clapping back at a h&ful of critics in the comments section of a photo featuring Vivianne, 8, Eric Jr., 7, & Forrest, 4, flashing extremely ripped abs in swimsuits on a beach in Mexico, the singer dedicated an entire post to shutting down the “bonkers” controversy once & for all.
“When I posted the pix of our vacation & included the kids being silly flexing on the beach on our thanksgiving trip I had NO clue it would get the reaction it did,” Jessie, who is married to Eric Decker, captioned a video compilation on Monday of the couple’s children enjoying their tropical getaway.
“But Being accused of photoshopping abs on my kids (I can’t help but laugh) or … the polar opposite over ‘overtraining’ our kids makes me realize how bizarre our world has gotten regarding the body & what’s normal & what’s not,” she wrote.
The 34-year-old — who admittedly struggles with body image issues & bouts of obsessive weight fluctuation — told her followers that she & her retired football player husb&, 35, make it a point to “preach about body positivity & acceptance” in their house.
Jessie said they want to raise their kids “to feel proud of their bodies & hard work,” going on to reference Vivi’s “elite competitive gymnastics,” Eric Jr.’s desire “to be like his dad as an NFL receiver” & Forrest’s hours-long sessions of “dancing his heart out.”
“But my kids having a mass amount of genetic & built muscle from athletics is ‘weird’?” she penned, adding, “Let’s not pick & choose what we normalize regarding bodies & be accepting of all people & children.”
The country songstress then invoked a variation of Maya Angelou’s famous words & encouraged her fans to “do better.”
“I’m proud of my children & encourage them to live their dreams,” she concluded her post, going on to joke, “We’ll see y’all at the 2032 Olympics, & wearing Bubbys jersey in the st&s & dancing at Forrests rock concert✌️.”
Eric showered his wife with love & support by commenting, “U get mama bear 🙌🏾🦁.” Fellow celebrity moms also backed her up.
“I’m sorry this even had to be addressed 😢,” “Jersey Shore” star Jenni “JWoww” Farley wrote, which was followed by Jamie Lynn Spears’ remark, “Yes mam [sic]!!! Your kids won the genetic lottery!! Go team Decker.”
And C&ace Cameron Bure, who’s in the middle of navigating her own unrelated internet controversy, dropped the emojis, “👏👏.”
