Brooklyn Decker is a confident swimsuit model, just nabbing one of the biggest titles of her young, bright career — Sports Illustrated cover model! Her confidence stems from a strong support system at home from hubby Andy Roddick. “He’s really good at giving advice because he’s been there and done that, so it’s nice to have his tips,” Brooklyn recently told OK!

“It’s nice because you kind of get to grow together,” she continued.

The blond bombshell, 22, and tennis superstar, 27, married last April in a candlelit ceremony before an intimate group of family and friends at Andy’s Austin, Texas, home.
