Jessie James Decker can’t believe how big her bump has gotten!

The country singer, 29, gave fans and followers an update on her growing stomach on Instagram Sunday, marking her 28th week of pregnancy. “Starting week 28! Can someone please tell me why I look 38 weeks pregnant??” the Eric & Jessie star captioned her mirror selfie of herself wearing a white shirt and patterned leggings.

“Side note (can’t believe my baby sister @sydneyraeface had baby Brookie at this point in her pregnancy. Makes me so proud and even more amazed at what a strong woman my sister is and how brave she was for her sweet preemie baby girl,” she continued.

“God chose her to be Brookies mama for a reason. God bless those mamas who had their babies this early I have a soft spot in my heart for those families even more now.”

Though her daughter wished for a baby sister, good news for Vivi is that she does have a close female playmate in Jessie’s niece.

“I keep telling her, ‘You have a baby sister,’ ” the pregnant star said of the advice she gives her daughter. ” ‘You don’t even realize, but [Brooklyn]’s your sister. You’re good. You guys’ll grow up together.’ ”
