Brooklyn Decker Admits to Wearing Incontinence Underwear
Instagram

Brooklyn Decker isn’t afraid to keep it real.

This week on Instagram, the former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model showed off her pair of Depends underwear, which she wears for her menstrual cycle.

Depends is a brand that specializes in products such as undergarments and bed protectors for those who struggle with incontinence — the inability to control leakage.

“If you don’t want to talk about periods keep scrolling,” the “Grace and Frankie” actress warned. “I don’t know why I’m putting this out there publicly but --- happens post-children that makes... well... let’s just say I am now in the depends-wearing stage of my period.”

The 33-year-old has been married to tennis player Andy Roddick since 2009, and the two share son, Hank, 4, and daughter, Stevie, 2.

In an October 2019 Parents.com article, Dr. Amina White, clinical associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, says that one’s period may change a little, a lot, or not at all after childbirth.

Back in 2017 while she was pregnant with Stevie, Decker explained to Parents.com how she broke the news to Roddick that she was expecting their second child.

“It was like a pee-on-the stick-and-show-him kind of situation,” she dished. “I get too excited about things and news like that, so for me to withhold that information for more than five seconds would have to be a miracle. There was no surprise plan or big reveal. It involved me running out of the bathroom with a pregnancy test. I was too excited to hold it in!”

The “Friends with Better Lives” alum also admitted to being more relaxed with her second pregnancy than her first.

“With the first you’re nervous and on edge, and with the second you just relax,” she said.
