Singer Jessie James Decker doesn't have a nanny for her three children, she herself takes care of them
Jessie James Decker received a lot of flak recently for nursing one of her kids as she drank a glass of wine
Jessie James Decker is a busy woman being a singer, a TV star, a fashion designer, and also an author. However, that does not stop her from being a full-time parent as well and she revealed that she does it with no hired help.
At her NYFW debut show for her brand 'Kittenish', Jessie shared with PEOPLE that she and her husband Eric Decker do not have a nanny for their children — 5-month-old Forrest Bradley, Eric “Bubby” Thomas Jr who is 3-years-old, and Vivianne 'Vivi' Rose, who is 4-years-old. Jessie recently faced a lot of backlash for nursing Forrest as she drank a glass of wine.
"I honestly feel like I’m the voice of all the moms. I definitely feel like they get heat for certain things. I know I’m a great mother, there’s not one doubt in my mind," Jessie shared.
"I know that I take care of my babies, I know that they feel loved and they feel happy," Jessie continued.
"I don’t have nannies; I take care of my children. So if I want to have a cocktail to celebrate my husband doing something great in his work, I’m going to, and I can still breastfeed. I feel like I want to be a voice for those moms that feel heat from others, or feel judgment because this is a hard job, and if you want to enjoy yourself you do it," she said.
Jessie also explained how she has a very inclusive 'we’re all in this together' mindset when it comes to supporting fellow mothers.
"I’ll talk to random moms that I meet at Gymboree and I’m like, ‘Hey, what’s going on with that? How do you do that?’ I’m always asking questions," Jessie said.
"And the same with me, girls asking questions. I just want all of us to feel like we’re in the same boat," she continued.
The mother of three also spoke of her infant Forrest and said, "He just goes with the flow. After three children, you kind of know what to expect and he’s been super easy and just chill and the kids love him. And Vivi [is] trying to change his diaper and pick him up, and I’m like ‘Ahh!’ But it’s good".
When she was asked about whether Eric wanted more children, she said, "[Eric] wants more kids. Oh, my lord. But no, he’s going to be doing some special things. There’s some things in the works and we’re excited about it".
