Singer Jessie James Decker posted a photo of her three children to social media. However, some fans were surprised to see that the young ones appeared to have ripped abdominal muscles. The singer’s young children, aged four, seven, and eight, have the bodies of bodybuilders–all thanks to the “elite” physical training she forces them to go through at the gym. Although she claims not to overwork her kids.
Jessie James Decker, aged 34, has three children with enviable ripped bodies which she attributes to their natural genetics. Four-year-old Forrest, seven-year-old Eric Jr., and eight Vivianne all work out regularly during the week at different intervals but despite this commitment to fitness, Mrs. Decker does not believe they train too hard for their age group.
Even so, the ripped abdominal muscles of Decker’s three young children in the photo caused fans to worry for their welfare. The concerned adults thought the kids looked more like teenagers or even adults than small tykes. After fans reacted to her shocking post over the Thanksgiving weekend, Decker took some time to collect her thoughts and then shared a response to the viral outpouring on Monday.
After the photo of her three kids went viral because their muscles were so well-defined, Decker took to social media to write. “I didn’t plan on addressing this because it is bonkers but the photos are out there and every single news outlet has posted about this. When I posted the pix of our vacation and included the kids being silly flexing on the beach on our thanksgiving trip I had NO clue it would get the reaction it did.”
Decker continued, “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 and what’s normal and what’s not. We preach about body positivity and acceptance but my kids having a mass amount of genetic and built muscle from athletics is ‘weird?’”
With more than three million followers on Instagram, Decker’s children have well-defined muscles that many were eager to learn more about.
“I want to raise my kids to feel proud of their bodies and hard work from either Vivi’s elite competitive gymnastics to Eric Jr. wanting to be like dad as an NFL receiver to little Forrest who spends hours dancing his heart out. Let’s not pick and choose what we normalize regarding bodies and be accepting of all people and children.”
The post ended with the mother saying “If we want to do ‘better’ then do better. I’m proud of my children and encourage them to live their dreams. So we’ll see y’all at the 2032 Olympics, wearing Bubby’s jersey in the stands and dancing at Forrest’s rock concert.”
Decker’s children having pronounced muscles was normal to her, but fans were not convinced.
