America is now officially gearing up for Sunday’s Super Bowl and we’re getting pretty excited for a day of watching football and eating lots of chips and dip. But probably noone is more excited than E!’s very own Jessie James, whose husband, Eric Decker, is going with his team the Denver Broncos to compete against the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII! Jessie’s eight months pregnant, by the way. But she’s still going!
So in honor of Eric & Jessie‘s major accomplishment, let’s take a quick look back at other celebrities who cheered on their men at Super Bowls of the past. Remember these classic moments? They may not go down in sports history, but they were pretty darn memorable to us:
Everyone who’s been watching KUWTK since the beginning knows that when Kim Kardashian‘s then boyfriend, Reggie Bush, went with the New Orleans Saints to the 2010 Super Bowl, it was a major deal for the entire Kardashian family. Kim and her mom cheered him from the sidelines, and it probably helped because their team won! The E! cameras caught Reggie and Kim’s congratulatory kisses post win, but that footage pales in comparison to this post-game interview, during which Kim completely steals the spotlight. This was Reggie’s moment, Kim. Just let the guy have it.
But let’s not forget that that same year, Kendra Wilkinson was cheering on her hubby, Hank Baskett, and his team, the Indianapolis Colts. They ended up losing the game, and Kendra was notoriously photographed sobbing post game while covering her then-baby son Hank Jr. with blankets. It was a sad, sad day on the Baskett household, that’s for sure.
Two years later in 2012, Gisele Bundchen was sitting pretty at the Giants vs. Patriots Super Bowl XLVI to support Tom Brady. Tom’s New England team had a really rough loss that year, and Gisele was spotted by paparazzi really angry post-game, blaming the loss on Tom’s teammates. It was awkward, basically.
And let’s not forget that time that Jessica Simpson was a Super Bowl cheerleader for her then boyfriend Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys! Just kidding. The Cowboys were this close to making the Super Bowl the year they dated, but sports fans said that his team didn’t end up making it partly because their MVP Tony was too distracted by his relationship with Jess. They split up in 2009.
Don’t forget, the Super Bowl airs this Sunday at 6:30pm on Fox! Which team are you rooting for? Are you on Team Broncos because of Eric & Jessie? Tweet us @OKMagazine.
