“15 boxes of waffles, 20 rolls of toilet paper, 18 loads of clothes a week” – and that’s the just beginning of what it takes to run the Derricos’ household!
TLC’s Doubling Down with the Derricos is back for season 2 in 2021 and there’s reason to believe that the family of 14 could be expanding even more. For anyone new to the show, here’s a look at the names and ages of the whole family, from the head of the household, real estate investor Deon, to the youngest in the family, triplets Dawsyn, De’Aren and Dyver.
Doubling down with the Derricos: Names and ages
The Derricos are a family of 14 who live in Las Vegas. They haven’t ever used IVF but both Karen and Deon have multiples on both sides of their families.
Karen, the mother of the family, describes a regular morning in their household as “like a ballet“.
The parents said that they spend $2500 – $3500 per month on groceries – and that’s the bare minimum!
All the children’s names begin with a ‘D’ because Deon is ‘triple D – Deon Derrick Derrico’.
