DENVER - 9NEWS Wide Receiver Eric Decker is finally getting to meet the baby named after him.
Eric Decker, along with a crew from his reality show, stopped by the NICU at St. Joseph's Hospital on Tuesday to visit with Decker Murren and his parents.
Baby Decker weighed just more than 1 pound when he was born in November 2013. His mom was only 24 weeks pregnant when she went into labor.
Now, just three months later, Baby Decker weighs 5 pounds 7 ounces. He is also breathing better and needs less help from a machine.
His mom, Cherie, says she loves it because she's now able to see more of his little face. The family doesn't expect to leave the hospital until sometime next month.
