The long list of TLC families we know and love is growing! Next month, a new series is debuting. This series will give fans an unaltered look into the daily lives of the ever-growing Derrico family. Doubling Down with the Derricos will feature Karen and Deon Derrico and their 14 children!
Doubling Down with the Derricos
Now, the Derricos are not your average family. According to People, Karen and Deon have 14 children together. And, what is even more unbelievable is that those 14 kiddos are all multiples! The couple has quintuplets, triplets, and two sets of twins. Even more surprisingly, natural conception leads to all of these multiples. As it turns out multiples are prevalent on both sides of their family!
Furthermore, the first season of this series will follow the couple’s latest pregnancy with their triplets. At 24 weeks, Karen learns from her doctor that she needs to rest more. Thus, the care of the couple’s 11 children falls all on Deon’s shoulders. Check out the trailer below!
In the above trailer, Deon says, “Having four sets of multiples back to back? It’s like getting struck by lightning while getting struck by lightning.” And Karen follows-up by stating, “We have our good days and our bad days…But there’s always enough love.” Not many people would have their immense patience with 14 young children.
TLC welcomes the Derricos
Now, People went on to report that the TLC president and general manager Howard Lee said, “TLC has always been the home for extraordinary families, and with multiple multiples the Derricos take ‘extraordinary’ to a whole new level!” He then added that TLC is proud and excited for TLC viewers to meet the Derrico family.
Secondly, the Derricos are not the only unique family or family of multiples to join the TLC family. Some of the other unique and extraordinary families on TLC are featured in the following series: OutDaughtered, Sweet Home Sextuplets, 7 Little Johnstons, Welcome to Plathville, Sister Wives, Counting On, and more.
Finally, the Derricos will be making a few other appearances in addition to the premiere of their new series. You can meet the family and get a behind the scenes look on TLCGo by watching Derrico Family: Inside the Episode. Additionally, The Derrico Family: Meet the Kids will debut exclusively on Facebook.
