Jessie James Decker shares why husband Eric ‘won’t’ get a vasectomy… even though they ‘probably’ will not expand family after three children
Jessie James Decker has uncovered the reason why her dashing husband Eric Decker is reluctant to get a vasectomy.
The couple share three children – Vivianne, eight, Bubby, seven, and Forrest, four – and Jessie, 34, said they ‘probably’ will not have any more.
However she told Us Weekly that Eric, a former NFL star, ‘refuses to go make it permanent’ out of fear that ‘it takes, like, his manhood away from him.’
When she was asked whether she and Eric plan to expand their family, she replied: ‘I feel like as of right now, it’s probably a no.’
But when she raises the subject of a vasectomy with her husband, he digs in his heels and declines to have the procedure.
‘I keep asking him: “Go make that appointment” and he won’t. He just won’t do it,’ said Jessie, who has been a country pop act since her childhood.
‘He says it takes, like, his manhood away from him. So he’s just gonna leave it, I guess,’ said the I Still Love You songbird.
An accidental pregnancy is therefore still on the table, and Jessie allowed that ‘if it happens, it’s always a blessing. We’re not doing anything to truly prevent that.’
Her latest remarks come a year after Eric told Us Weekly that ‘the papers are filled out’ for him to get a vasectomy, but he was ‘a little nervous about it, to be honest’ as the operation represents ‘a little power being taken. That’s how I feel.’
At the same time an exasperated Jessie groused to the same outlet that her husband ‘will not’ go through with the procedure. ‘It’s still TBD.’
The sizzling hot couple tied the knot in 2013 and that year began their E! reality series Eric & Jessie: Game On, which ran for three seasons.
Last week the pair set tongues wagging as they flashed the flesh in a smoldering photo-shoot for her Kittenish clothing line.
Eric bared his sculpted shirtless torso as he wrapped his arms around his wife, who served up a generous helping of cleavage in a plunging bodysuit.
Jessie waxed rhapsodic about her ‘amazing’ children last year, telling Entertainment Tonight: ‘I just wake up every day just so excited just to be their mom.’
The singing sensation went on: ‘I really do. I’m like: “Oh my God, I get to just be with them again today.” It’s just the greatest feeling.’
She also explained her reasons for bringing her children on tour with her, remarking: ‘I don’t know that I would be able to do this if they couldn’t come with me.’
Said she: ‘I would just be sad. I don’t know if I would enjoy it to the fullest as I should. I’m just too attached. I can’t be without them for more than a couple of days.’
