Who is Eric Decker? All about Jessie James Decker’s husband

Eric Decker, a former NFL player, has a lot to thank mutual friends for – as they were the ones who introduced him to his now-wife, country singer Jessie James Decker.

Before meeting Jessie, Eric had built a successful career as a wide receiver, playing for teams like the Denver Broncos, New York Jets, New England Patriots, and the Tennessee Titans. In August 2018, Eric decided to retire from football, feeling emotionally and mentally checked out of the game.

The couple first met in 2011, after mutual friends set them up. Jessie remembers the moment vividly, as her friend texted her saying, “I’m having dinner with this guy I’m seeing, and this other guy just showed up, and he’s stunning. Show him a picture of me, and see if he’s into it.”

After Eric reached out, Jessie decided to change her dating philosophy, making him chase her. The pair got engaged in 2012 and tied the knot in Colorado in 2013.

Since then, Eric and Jessie have welcomed four children – Vivianne, Eric Jr., Forrest, and most recently, Denver, born in February 2024.

The family recently made headlines when Eric Decker was spotted with their kids, cheering on Jessie during her Dancing with the Stars debut.

The couple announced the arrival of Denver on Instagram, sharing a heartwarming picture of the new addition to their family.
