NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: Jessie James Decker has once again fired back at the backlash she received after sharing a photo of her children posing in their swimsuits at a beach in Mexico in November 2022. The mother of three, 34, was reportedly mom-shamed and accused of photoshopping abs onto her children on the beach in a photograph she shared on her Instagram during the Thanksgiving weekend.

The former 'Dancing with the Stars' contestant made headlines after posting an image of her children which showed off their physiques. "Vacation Decker style," she captioned the photo alongside a muscle, a coconut, and a palm tree emoji. The image was immediately targeted by social media users, with many people expressing disbelief over her young children’s abs. Some even wondered if she had used a filter. Netizens went on to question Decker's parenting skills. During an interview with Fox News Digital, the 'I Still Love You' singer took the opportunity to clap back at the haters once again.

"I feel like I know what a great mom I am, and I know my truth. So, it doesn't bother me," Decker told the news outlet on Friday, December 30, as a response to the harsh comments. "I don't know that I ever think too deep into it. It comes with the territory," she added. "We tune out the noise, and we're proud of them," she said, referring to herself and her husband Eric Decker, 35.

The 'Kittenish' founder also responded to many hate comments under the Instagram post. Decker told one Instagram commenter, "It’s a sad world we live in today when having healthy fit kids who are super active, play sports [and] build muscle naturally is 'weird.'" The pop singer responded to another user, "From one mother to another. Please don’t call my children’s appearance strange just because they don’t look the way you think they should? It’s unkind."

Only a week after posting the beach photos of her children, the 'Flip My Hair' artist took to her Instagram to address the online hate and explained that her children were "silly flexing" in the photo but the ability to do so was due to their "genetics" and "elite" training. She went on to share that Vivianne, eight, practices "elite" competitive gymnastics, Eric, Jr, seven, wants to be like his father and plays flag football, and Forrest, four, "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," she continued. "If we wanna 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, and wearing Bubbys jersey in the stands and dancing at Forrests rock concert," Decker concluded.
