The mother of three urges her followers to “not pick and choose what we normalize regarding bodies and be accepting of all people and children” after being accused of photoshopping abs on her daughter Vivianne, 8, Eric Jr., 7, and Forrest, 4, on a picture she took of them during a family vacation.
“When I posted the pix of our vacation and included the kids being silly flexing on the beach on our thanksgiving trip I had NO clue it would get the reaction it did,” Decker wrote in her post. “But Being accused of photoshopping abs on my kids (I can’t help but laugh) or â€¦ the polar opposite over ‘overtraining’ our kids makes me realize how bizarre our world has gotten regarding the body and what’s normal and what’s not.”
“We preach about body positivity and acceptance but my kids having a mass amount of genetic and built muscle from athletics is ‘weird’?” the 34-year-old singer questioned. “I want to raise my kids to feel proud of their bodies and hard work from either Vivis elite competitive gymnastics to Eric Jr wanting to be like dad as an NFL receiver to little Forrest who spends hours dancing his heart out.”
