Birthplace: Middletown, Ohio
Best known as: Cover model for the 2010 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue
Brooklyn Decker is the popular model who appeared on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in 2010. Brooklyn Decker is a blue-eyed blonde who "was discovered at age 16 in a mall and began her career as the face of Mauri Simone," the prom dress company, according to the magazine. She first appeared in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue in 2006, quickly becoming a regular in the annual bathing suit extravaganza. She appeared on the magazine's cover, posing in the Maldive Islands, in 2010; the SI cover was such a plum assignment that it was announced on the David Letterman show a few days before the issue's release. Brooklyn Decker has also appeared in ad campaigns for Victoria's Secret (also beginning in 2006) and The Gap, as well as in fashion magazines like Glamour and Cosmopolitan. She married tennis pro Andy Roddick on 17 April 2009. Decker has also had a few roles in films and TV, including the 2007 TV movie Lipshitz Saves the World and 2009 guest shots on the TV shows Chuck and Ugly Betty. She co-starred with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler in the 2011 comedy Just Go With It, with Decker playing the dream girl who causes complications to ensue.
Extra credit: Brooklyn Decker is 5'10" tall, she said during a 2010 interview with ChicagoNow... She was born in Ohio but raised in North Carolina... Some sources list August 3 as her birthday. But Brooklyn Decker herself, on ESPN Radio's Dan Patrick show on 3 August 2009, said that her correct date of birth was 12 April 1987.
