Doubling Down with the Derricos stars Deon Derrico and wife, Karen Derrico have three beautiful triplets. Fans were excited to see that there are two girls and one boy in the mix.
Doubling Down with the Derricos: Deon Derrico Rushes to the Hospital
When we first met Karen and Deon Derrico, Karen was pregnant with triplets. In the latest episodes, an earthquake in Las Vegas encouraged the babies to come early. Karen of Doubling Down with the Derricos was already at the hospital on bed rest trying to keep the babies in. But that didn’t work out.
The babies were born at 28 weeks. That is the same number of weeks their last triplets came into the world. And sadly, Deon and his wife lost Carter, one of the previous triplets. And they now affectionately call the surviving triplets the “triplins.”
Thankfully, Doubling Down with the Derricos star Deon’s mother came down from Detroit to help. So, when Deon got the call that Karen Derrico was in active labor, he was able to head out quickly.
Karen Wants to Take Baby’s Place
All of the babies from Doubling Down with the Derricos did make it into the world. But the baby Karen and Deon named Dawson needed at least two heart surgeries. Karen said she wished she could take her baby’s place on the table.
Karen was already having a hard time since she wasn’t able to gain weight when pregnant with the babies. In fact, Karen lost weight while she was in the hospital and found it hard to eat. Worrying about her baby isn’t likely to have helped the situation.
Everyone watching was worried about the babies and hoping they were now healthy and happy. We are happy to report that all babies are healthy. The two girls and two boys are also—adorable.
Doubling Down with the Derricos: Happy and Healthy Babies
Recently, Deon Derrico shared footage of him and the family going out to eat. We saw that there are three new little ones in highchairs. Both little girls and the little boy sitting at the end of the tables.
It also looks like Deon’s mother is still around helping out with the babies. She looks like she’s having the time of her life. In the second episode of Doubling Down with the Derricos, she shared that her family brought her so much life and happiness.
Everyone can breathe a sigh of relief. Both mom and babies are doing well, and the newest TLC family will share more of their story at 10 pm on Tuesday nights.
