After being prodded by friends to look into modeling at the age of 16, Decker met with Charlotte-based agency Evolution Models who helped her to land her first gig in 2002 as the face of prom dress designer Mauri Simone. At 18, Brooklyn moved to New York City and signed with Marilyn Model Management, the prestigious agency that also represents Adriana Lima and Irina Lazareanu. She quickly rose to stardom within the industry, gracing the pages of magazines including Elle, GQ, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, PoP Magazine and Teen Vogue and featured in major advertising campaigns for Gap, American Eagle, and Hollister.
Decker's big break came in 2006 when she first appeared in the wildly popular Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Her hourglass figure and sophisticated, all-American look earned her a reoccurring spot in the 2007, 2008 and 2009 issues and the 2010 cover. At the young age of 21, Brooklyn Decker has become one of the most in demand models of swimwear and a recognized face to millions.
Brooklyn has also appeared in NBC'S comedy sitcom pilot Lipshitz Saves the World which led to guest star roles on NBC's Chuck and ABC's Ugly Betty as well as the USA Network hit Royal Pains.
Brooklyn is a reoccurring guest on the renowned televised radio sports talk show The Dan Patrick Show and is also the host and star of a lifestyle DVD collection with Elle Magazine called the Make Better Series, teaching women aboutfashion, beauty and fitness.
When not modeling, Decker is an avid sports fan, rooting for her favorite teams, the University of North Carolina Tar Heels and the Carolina Panthers. Inspired by her love of sports and her aunt's personal struggles from being born without a corpus collosum in her brain, Brooklyn became active in the Special Olympics in her hometown of Charlotte.
In April 2009, Decker married professional tennis player Andy Roddick in a private ceremony in Austin. The couple currently lives in Brooklyn, New York and Austin, Texas with their English bulldog, Billie Jean.
