Indeed, Vivi can’t contain her joy on learning that she’s about to get a new sibling. After her mom tells her that “Jesus helped put a baby in mommy’s tummy,” the three-year-old begins clapping enthusiastically.

Jessie later told People that Vivi had desperately wanted a new sibling for quite some time. So much so, in fact, that the youngster repeatedly prayed for a baby brother or sister alongside her rosary-waving grandmother. Just 17 months older than Eric, Vivi had been too young to get excited about the birth of the Decker family’s previous addition.
