0 6

Jessie James Decker said she was “confused” by people’s criticism of her kids’ abs, but wasn’t “upset” after sharing a photo from their family vacation.

Decker, 34, opened up about the controversial moment during a recent interview. The former ‘Dancing with the Stars’ contestant made waves on social media in November after she shared a photo of her daughter and two sons in swimsuits.

“You know, what’s really funny is there are times when I post something on Instagram and I’m like, ‘It could cause this, but whatever’ or ‘It could be taken in a funny way, it can’t make me care. “I literally posted that and didn’t even think about it,” Decker told US Weekly.

“So the hours go by and all of a sudden I’m like, ‘Wait, what?’ I couldn’t believe the reaction I was so confused but there wasn’t a single moment that it upset me.

JESSIE JAMES DECKER FIRE BACK AFTER BEING ACCUSED OF PHOTOSHOPPING ABS ON HER CHILDREN

After Decker posted the holiday snap, some took to the comments to accuse him of shooting his abs on his three kids.

“I guess I thought, ‘This is so wild.’ My kids are athletic, they’re outdoors, and genetics play a big part. For example, my siblings had six packs when we were kids, and so did Eric and his sister,” she explained to the point of sale. “They were just genetic , and my kids are extremely active, and I’m not going to apologize for that. It’s common that I’m not going to talk about things, but it’s my kids and I’m a mama bear.

She continued, “And to me, that was ridiculous. I’m proud of them, and they’re very active, and they have their passion for sports and performance and let’s encourage that.

The “Should Have Known Better” singer added that her daughter Vivianne focuses on gymnastics.

“She is amazing and I am very proud of her. She is 8 years old, and what are we going to do? Are we going to call kids who are active athletes?” interviewed the mother of three.

“She may go to the Olympics one day, and we’re already going to start criticizing a little girl’s body for being physically elite and fit? How about encouraging and emphasizing that she is working so hard on something she loves so much and has a dream?

Decker previously defended her children in the comments to her original social media post.

“Not looking good…sorry, sorry,” one user wrote.

“It’s a sad world we live in today as we build healthy kids who play super active sports [sic] muscles are ‘weird’ by nature,” Decker replied.

“It’s an app for sure, but I don’t see anyone saying the same thing,” another user commented.

“Yeah I used an ‘ab’ app on my wtf grandkids,” Decker wrote in response.
