Jessie James Decker responded to online trolls after she was accused of photoshopping abdominal muscles onto her young children in a photo shared from their vacation in Mexico.
The country music singer said she had no plans to address the "bonkers" situation when she innocently posted family pictures from their Thanksgiving holiday, but reactions to the images prompted Decker to advocate for her kids.
She captioned a video of her three children, "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..."
A few Instagram followers called out Decker for possibly altering the images.
She wrote, "We preach about body positivity and acceptance but my kids having a mass amount of genetic and built muscle from athletics is 'weird'? I want to raise my kids to feel proud of their bodies and hard work from either Vivis 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. If we wanna do ‘better’ then do better."
Decker added, "I’m proud of my children and encourage them to live their dreams. So we’ll see y’all at the 2032 Olympics, and wearing Bubbys jersey in the stands and dancing at Forrests rock concert."
When another follower asked how her daughter had a six-pack, Decker was quick to respond, "she’s a gymnast. She loves it and puts her heart into it."
Jessie and Eric married in 2013 while the football star was playing for the Denver Broncos.
