Brooklyn Decker can be described as an Ohio girl. She was born on the 12th of April 1987 in the city of Kettering located in the Montgomery and Greene counties of Ohio State.
She hails from a middle class background and is the first child of her family. Her parents are Mr Stephen Decker and Mrs Tessa Decker. Her dad is a trained pacemaker carpenter while her mum held a job as a nurse before retiring years ago. The Deckers are a family of four. Brooklyn Decker has a younger brother named Jordan Decker.
Though her birthplace is Kettering, Ohio, Brooklyn’s family moved twice while she was growing up. The first was to Middletown, situated in Butler and Warren counties of Ohio. While the second was to Matthews, North Carolina. As a young girl, she had no idea that she would ever become a model.
However, fate showed that it had plans in store for her when she was sighted by a modelling agent in the state of Charlotte. Despite being a teenager, Brooklyn Decker had caught the attention of the modelling agent who didn’t waste time in informing she and her parents about his interest in working with her.
Interested in trying something new, she decided to give it a shot and became the face of Mauri Simone, a prom dress maker. This was the start of her modelling career. After this first gig, she began receiving offers from brands and fashion houses in Charlotte. This gave Brooklyn Decker the opportunity to advance quickly in the career. Thus, when she won the Model Of The Year award at the age of sixteen, many people weren’t surprised.
Brooklyn Decker attended top public schools in Kettering and Middletown for her elementary and junior high school education.
She was educated at David W. Butler High School, graduating from the school in 2005.
One notable thing about Brooklyn Decker‘s story is that she took the bulk by the horns in the early days of her career. After graduating from high school, she decided to skip school and pursue modelling fully. This was why she moved from Charlotte to New York City in 2005. As luck would have it, she auditioned for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and was picked to appear in the 2006 edition. She repeated the same feat in 2007 edition and was chosen to host the 2007 behind-the-scenes television special. She would go on to host the 2008 and 2010 editions. The latter was shot in the Maldives.

She has worked with brands like Victoria’s Secret, The Gap and Intimissimi; and featured in music videos of artistes such as 3 Doors Down and Jimmy Buffett.
Brooklyn‘s sojourn into the world of acting began when she was cast to play the role of a model in the NBC’s series, Chuck. It was a guest appearance as she only acted in one episode. In 2009, she was invited to make another guest appearance on the show, Royal Pains, aired by USA Network. She secured the job of being the guest judge on the 5th Season Of Germany’s Next Top Model.
