Doubling Down with the Derricos’ Karen and Deon Derrico raise quintuplets, triplets and TWO sets of twins in new show – The Sun

Karen and Deon Derrico are raising quintuplets, triplets and TWO sets of twins.

Their new TLC series, Doubling Down with the Derricos, shows what life is like with 14 children.

The Derricos will premier on TLC next month.

Deon said in a promo: "Having four sets of multiples back to back? It's like getting struck by lightning while getting struck by lightning.

"Many parents know with just one child, two children, it's a job. But when you have soon-to-be 14, it's a job."

Karen added: "We have our good days and our bad days.

"But there's always enough love."

Karen and Deon's 14 children, made up of quintuplets, triplets and two sets of twins, were all conceived naturally.

Both sides of the family are known for giving birth to multiples.

The series kicks off as the couple is preparing to welcome their triplets.

However, at 24 weeks Karen is forced to spend the rest of the pregnancy in the hospital.

This leaves Deon alone at home with their 11 other children, who range in age from 2-14.

The Derricos will be right at home on TLC, which features multiple other series about large families including Jon & Kate Plus 8, OutDaughtered, Sweet Home Sextuplets, 7 Little Johnstons, Welcome to Plathville, Sister Wives.

TLC president and general manager Howard Lee said in a statement: "TLC has always been the home for extraordinary families, and with multiple multiples the Derricos take 'extraordinary' to a whole new level!

"They bring a fresh voice, perspective and willingness to share their culture and values.

"And while their size may be unique, their story is universally relatable — devoted parents trying to raise their children the best way they know how all while navigating life's ups and downs. We are proud and excited to introduce TLC viewers to the Derricos."
