Jessie James Decker recently celebrated the release of her new single and self-love anthem, Should Have Known Better. Shortly after the music video’s initial release, she also got to celebrate a huge life milestone: hearing her song on the radio for the very first time. Aside from the country music, though, Decker likes to celebrate the big milestones in her personal life too. Decker recently took to Instagram to share a big moment with her 3.8 million followers: her son’s 6th birthday.
Eric II is the second eldest of three children Jessie James Decker shares with husband and former NFL star, Eric Decker. The beautiful photo captured by @imagesofgracephoto shows mom Jessie embracing little Eric while the two of them share a sweet kiss on the beach. The soft peach lighting of the sky makes the scene reminiscent of a dream. You can almost hear the tide being pulled in and out and you can almost feel the soft sand. Jessie’s little mini-me also definitely has his mom’s sandy blonde hair, complete with all the highlights and lowlights.
A host of other notable verified accounts joined in the celebrations, celebrating not only Eric II but Jessie as well.

Jessie James Decker’s Childhood
Jessie James Decker wears a lot of hats. Between music, fashion, cooking, and being an entrepreneur, she is more than able to provide for herself and her children. She says her children’s childhood looks much different than her own. In talking to Motherly, Decker reveals her family did not have much money growing up. She remembers her family struggling to feed themselves.
“Early on we definitely had lots of memories of simply having no money and money that my mom couldn’t even afford to pay for diapers. I remember that very clearly…because I have experienced both; I feel blessed that I’ve experienced both. That I know what it’s like to be in a situation where you don’t have money for food. And I also know it feels so blessed to be able to provide,” she says.
In the same interview, Decker goes on to explain how she balances spending quality time with each of her three children:
“So Vivi is really good at vocalizing that she wants to spend some time or what she wants. Bubby’s on the shier side and isn’t as good at vocalizing so I have to really take extra thought into okay I need to spend some one on one time with Bubby because I know that even though he may not be communicating that with me, little boys are not as good communicators as little girls in my home. But I would say just dividing up the time between them three, making sure they all get that quality one on one time because it is important to do that.”
Here’s sweet little Jessie James Decker in a touching throwback. What do you think– which of her kids resembles her most? The overall resounding answer from the comments seems to be little “Viv.”
