Playing Jessie James Decker and Eric Decker on Expecting a Baby Boy: He's Going to Be a Baseball Player!

Jessie James Decker and Eric Decker only just revealed this weekend that they are expecting a baby boy, but it turns out they’ve been prepping their daughter for big sister duties for a while now.

“She’s amazing. She is so prepared, we have her in big sister t-shirts already,“ Jessie told ETonline’s Sophie Schillaci on the red carpet at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Dallas. “She’s ready. We’re excited.”

Jessie showed off her cute little bump on the red carpet in a curve-hugging white Kittenish by Kora Rae dress, designed by the singer, herself! The couple announced last month that they were expecting baby No. 2 just one year after giving birth to their first child, Vivianne Rose, in March 2014.

Vivianne is so excited because she is going to be a big sister! We are over the moon about having another baby!!! 🍼

So how does Jessie feel about sharing such big news with her fans on social media? “They’re so good to me. Honestly, I don’t know if I would be that open if they weren’t so open back with me,” Jessie said. “They’re so accepting of who I am, so I feel like they’re my friends. I really do!”

As for what having a boy means to Eric, he says, “[He] gets to carry the name on. I love my little girl, but to have the boy now and get to teach him the sporty stuff. That’s what I’m looking forward to.”

Just don’t expect another little football star. The New York Jets wide receiver tells ETonline he has something else in mind. “I’m going to push him towards baseball,” he laughed.
