Brooklyn Decker, Sports Illustrated cover girl of 2010, was born in Kettering, Ohio but raised in Charlotte, North Carolina where she was discovered in a shopping mall. She began her career in her teen years modeling prom dresses for the well-known brand, Mauri Simone. However moving to New York City in 2005 proved her greatest decision. Only two months after her move, Decker booked her first major job: an appearance in Sport Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. She went on to model for Sports Illustrated every year until earning the cover in 2010.
In the midst of a skyrocketing career, Decker still managed to find time for love, marrying tennis star Andy Roddick in the spring of 2009.
Aside from her flourishing modeling career, landing her jobs with The Gap, Intimissimi, and Victoria’s Secret along with numerous magazine appearances, Decker is also exploring the acting world. With initial guest roles in television shows such as "Ugly Betty" and "Royal Pains" under her belt, Decker finally hit the big screen alongside Adam Sandler in the 2011 film "Just Go With It."
