Do you know when Brooklyn Decker’s birthday is? Not many do.
On Monday’s Dan Patrick Show, Patrick interviewed Andy Roddick’s wife and thought it was her birthday. After she said it wasn’t, Patrick said that Wikipedia noted her birthday to be that day. Decker, a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, corrected Patrick and said her birthday was April 12.
For some reason, Wikipedia and various Web sites have displayed her birthdate as August 3, 1987. “I don’t know where that came from,” Decker said on the radio show. The year is correct but not the day, a mistake that isn’t often made.
Wikipedia has usually been reliable when it comes to birthdates of public figures. It got this one wrong and so did others. Thehollywoodgossip.com. is virtually the only site that gives her correct birthdate.
Decker, 22, has been married to Roddick for nearly four months. People.com says that two years ago Roddick saw her photos in Sports Illustrated’s 2007 swimsuit edition and asked his agent to contact her. They ended up meeting that year and got engaged in March of 2008.
