When it comes to stressful milestone’s in a person’s life, changing careers is near the top of the list. It helps alleviate some of the stress to have someone to lean on, and Eric Decker obviously has that in his country singer, songwriter, entrepreneur and baby mama, Jessie James Decker.

In a post on his Instagram page, the former NFL wide receiver announced that he was retiring from football, and one of the reasons he was leaving the sport was to spend more time with wife Jessie and babies Vivianne, Eric “Bubba”, and baby Forrest. You could tell that it was a difficult and emotional decision as Eric wrote, “It has been my childhood dream and my passion to play the game of football. I was very fortunate and blessed to have had the opportunity to have those dreams fulfilled…”

Now his wife, Jessie, has responded to his announcement with her own emotional message. In an Instagram post, she writes, “Yesterday was an emotional day. My amazing hubby decided to retire from playing football and I couldn’t be more proud of him and his decision. I cried, smiled and ultimately respected his choice to finish this chapter and start another.”

Jessie went on to explain that the photo that accompanies her note was from the first football season that couple dated and his second as a Denver Bronco. She added, “I loved every minute cheering him on in the stands, meeting amazing friends along the way, bringing our new babies and toddlers to the games as they chanted “daddy football daddy football” in the car on the way the stadium each Sunday. From training camps lugging the babies in the wagons and seeing them run to you on the practice field to get that 30 minutes a day to see daddy. I have loved every moment of the last seven years watching my husband kick some serious ass! It’s a career he should be proud of. Can’t wait to share the next adventure with you babe and the amazing things you will do in the future! I love you so much my lover!!!”

And it sounds like there’s a possibility Eric may celebrate with a new set of wheels, at least if Jessie has any say in it. She closes her poignant post by writing, “PS – you said you were going to drive that beat up old Chevy Tahoe u got in college and ride it through he ground until you finished playing football, can we please get a new one now? Lol”

In addition to their careers on the gridiron and in the recording studio, Jessie and Eric endeared themselves to a legion of fans with their reality show, “Eric and Jessie: Game On,” on E!.
