Jessie James Decker’s husband doesn’t plan on getting snipped anytime soon.
In an interview with Us Weekly published on Tuesday, the 34-year-old country singer, who already shares 8-year-old daughter Vivianne, 7-year-old son Eric Jr., and 4-year-old son Forrest with hubby Eric Decker, opened up about whether or not the couple plan on having more children in the future. She told the outlet:
“I feel like as of right now, it’s probably a no.”
Although Jessie and Eric aren’t expanding their family at this time, the Should Have Known Better artist shared that it’s not a sure thing. See, her partner “refuses to go make it permanent” and get a vasectomy — despite her desire for him to have it done:
“I keep asking him, ‘Go make that appointment’ and he won’t. He just won’t do it.”

And the reason why he won’t get it? He believes the procedure will somehow make him less of a man. Yeah, you read that right. Jessie explained:
“He says it takes, like, his manhood away from him. So he’s just gonna leave it, I guess.”
What the f**k?! Is he serious??? He clearly did not read the important memo from Teen Mom’s Tyler Baltierra, who got a vasectomy last year! It may take away his ability to make babies, but he’s already done that. Unless he is planning in the back of his mind to maybe go make babies with someone else — or go against his wife’s wishes and give her more — just get that damn snip!
Anyway, since Eric is unwilling to bend on the matter despite his wife’s wishes, Jessie said she just accepted that more kids actually might be in their future as they are “not doing anything to truly prevent” getting pregnant again. She added:
“I mean, you know, if it happens, it’s always a blessing.”
Wow. This is not the first time the former Dancing With the Stars contestant has been vocal about how Eric keeps putting his foot down on a vasectomy. She told Us Weekly in January 2022:
“He won’t book it. He will not book it. It’s still TBD.”
Meanwhile, the former NFL wide receiver revealed at the time that “the papers are filled out,” but he was reluctant to do the surgery, saying:
“It’s a little power being taken. That’s how I feel. I’m a little nervous about it, to be honest.”
When Eric spoke about the matter with Jessie, he recalled telling her:
“You don’t know where life will take you in the next five years. … We have amazing kids, so I don’t want a lot of love being taken.”
“You don’t know where life will take you…” OMG, it’s like he’s telling her to her face that maybe he’ll need to start another family with another woman! LOLz!
What are your thoughts on the matter, Perezcious readers? Do you think he’s being ridiculous? Or is he just being prudent?? Sound OFF in the comments below.
