Doubling Down with the Derricos‘ Karen Derrico and Deon Derrico dealt with a lot of problems in this first season of the TLC show. One of those was the early birth of their triplets. And now they found out one of their children is COVID positive.
Doubling Down with the Derricos Update: Karen Derrico Says Deon Isn’t There
During the first season of Doubling Down with the Derricos, there wasn’t much time for rest or play for the parents or kids. TLC’s Deon and Karen both have gone in different directions taking care of kids. And Deon didn’t want to have anything to do with his daughter Dawsyn Derricos’ heart surgery.
In fact, Deon Derrico was so distant that Karen told him she felt like she was in it alone. Not only did Karen notice this, but Deon’s mother GG spoke with him about it. Thankfully, Deon listened to his mother and told Karen Derrico he would be there with her.
Deon said he wanted the kids to know he was there for their mother Karen. And didn’t want them to think about how he decided not to help with baby Dawsyn.
Dawsyn Derrico Can’t Catch a Break
Karen and her husband Deon spoke with production about their daughter. They said that out of all their children and with how safe they are, baby Doubling Down with the Derricos star Dawsyn still got COVID-19. And not only the baby, but GG and Deon also got sick. It’s unclear from the teaser if they have coronavirus as well or not.
Whatever the case, the doctors told Karen she could assume that her whole family has been exposed to it. It’s been a long season for this family. And soon, the finale will be wrapping things up.
Thankfully, we can say that we know the baby does make it through. And all three of the triplets are happy and healthy—despite this scare with the virus.
Doubling Down with the Derricos: Ending the Season with a Bang
This COVID announcement worried fans for the family. But everyone following the family in real-time knows everyone is safe. And the family is doing well.
The last episode of the first season will show what happened before COVID came into the house. Deon from Doubling Down with the Derricos said he was the only one to go outside. And if Karen did have to take the baby to her cardiologist, she covered her up to keep her safe while going out.
Having eighteen people under one roof during a lockdown was not easy for the family. But it does look like they kept everyone busy. And only two of the adults – GG and Deon – were down with sickness for a little bit of time
