Doubling Down With The Derricos is returning to TLC with season 4 on May, 30 but if it’s your first time in the Derrico household, Reality Titbit has a rundown of the names and ages of the 16-member family.
“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 be Doubling Down With The Derricos!
The TLC show is back for season 4 as the parents continue to navigate the challenges of parenting 14 kids. There’s reason to believe that the family could be expanding even more, but 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 to the babies of the gang.
Names and ages of Doubling Down With The Derricos cast
The Derricos are a family of 16 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 Derrico, 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‘.
Karen and Deon Derrico
Stay-at-home mother Karen Derrico is 43 years old. Born February 26, 1980, Karen was raised in Kingstree, South Carolina. In 2023, she has a reported net worth of $500,000 – $1 million.
Father Deon Derrico is a real estate investor and is nine years his wife’s senior at 52 years old. He has an estimated net worth of $6 million.
Deon’s mom, Marian Derrico – known as Grandmother GG – regularly features on the reality show. The season 4 trailer shows the matriarch celebrating her 73rd birthday.
Doubling Down with the Derricos children
Before Karen and Deon had multiple children, they had their firstborn daughter and son.
The eldest of the children is Darian. She helps her parents out by looking after all of her siblings.
The Derricos’ first-born son is Derrick.
Derrick said that the best part of having a big family was “that you have your family’s back and they have yours”.
Dallas and Denver
Dallas and Denver are the first set of twins that Karen and Deon welcomed.
The parents described the twin boys as “total opposites”; Dallas is the entertainer, while Denver is the boss.
Deonee, Daician, Daiten, Deniko and Dariz
The Derricos grew rapidly when the quintuplets came along on September 6, 2013.
The quintuplets are considered a “medical miracle”, according to Karen Derrico. The parents were expected quadruplets until the doctor revealed they were welcoming five babies at Karen’s 22nd week.
Diez and Dior
Following the nine children they had already, the Derricos welcomed twin boys Diez and Dior in 2017.
Karen describes the boys as “the manager” and “the supervisor” because they’re always running the household.
Dawsyn, De’Aren and Dyver
Triplets Dawsyn, De’Aren and Dyver were born on July 6, 2019.
Dawsyn was nicknamed “Awesome Dawsyn” by her mother as she endured open heart surgery due to a condition called ventricular septal defect (VSD). It is a birth defect in which babies have a hole in their hearts.
She recovered well and you’ll be seeing her crazy antics in season 4.
Where is Doubling Down With The Derricos filmed?
The show is filmed at their home in North Las Vegas, Nevada. The property is reportedly 2400 sqft, but with the kids growing older, Karen’s concerns over their living situation are growing.
The Derricos almost moved to South Carolina, but Grandmother GG wasn’t keen on the relocation.
Chaos in season 4’s trailer shows the 14 children running around their home, prompting both parents to become emotional.
“This small house has caused a lot of stress,” Karen admits, while Deon reaches his breaking point and leaves the family minivan. “It feels like we’re in one room. I’m out of here. I can’t deal with this,” he says.
Doubling Down With The Derricos season 4 premieres Tuesday, May 30 at 10pm ET on TLC.
