Happy birthday, Eric Decker!

The former NFL player is turning 32 years old today and boy does time fly. We remember the days when Decker was newly married to Jessie James Decker and just starting their lives together back in 2013.

One reality show and three kids later, Decker is a full-on family man, amazing husband and still a total dreamboat. He might've retired from playing football, but he is still rocking an athletic bod and sweeping his wife off her feet, making fans all around the world jealous.

What's even more dreamy about the birthday boy however is his love for his family. Being the father to daughter Vivianne, and sons Eric Jr. and Forrest, is his number one priority these days and there is just something about a caring dad that is totally hot.

In honor of the former Eric & Jessie: Game On star's birthday we're looking back at his sweetest family moments thus far.

Eric Decker & Jessie James Decker Are the Hottest Couple Ever

Whether its going all-in on his daughter's birthday party, or dressing up in matching family Halloween costumes, Decker's dad life is too adorable to handle.

He's been Captain Hook to his wife's Wendy, taken his children on the field during his NFL practice days and gave us parenting inspiration as his kids favorite human jungle gym for years.

If you want a little joy in your life today look no further than this fun Decker family gallery. Trust us, you'll love the birthday guy even more after scrolling through these cute snaps!
