August 28, 2023 | 7:24 a.m

Jessie James Decker and Eric Decker were “very, very, very surprised” to learn baby #4 is on the way.

“It wasn’t planned,” the pregnant star clarified to her Instagram followers in a story Q&A on Sunday.

“As you know, I had told Eric it was probably time for a vasectomy because I felt like we were done,” she explained. “But I just feel like God always has other plans. But it was extremely shocking and surprising [we are] happy excited.”

The “grateful” 35-year-old broke down in tears, adding: “Being able to have another little baby is the most incredible blessing, so to speak.” We are all over the moon.”

She noted that Eric, 36, “didn’t believe her” when she told him Vivianne, 9, Eric Jr., 7, and Forrest, 5, were having a younger sibling.

The retired NFL player believed his wife was “playing a joke” until she “physically peed on a stick again.”

Jessie recalled, “It was a shock for a while.”

Regarding her children’s reactions, the songwriter said the little ones found out “quite quickly” because their family is “just too close-knit” for secrets.

“I wanted them to understand why Mom would be so sluggish and tired and not as energetic as I’ve always been,” she said.

The former reality star also hinted at when she and Eric envisioned their impending arrival, writing that “someone really missed her” when she returned home from a trip to Italy in May.

Jessie, who is four months old, showed off her baby bump on Instagram last week.

The social media upload comes seven months after she told Us Weekly of her husband’s refusal to be circumcised for fear the procedure would “rob him of his manhood.”

The couple poked fun at their decision in a promotional video for Ryan Reynolds’ Aviation Gin in June.

Jessie had publicly expressed her hopes for Eric’s vasectomy since 2021, when she claimed the former athlete made an appointment.
