In August 2020, Doubling Down With the Derricos premiered on TLC. The family reality series gave viewers a look into Karen and Deon Derrico's life with their 14 kids and the family's journey through the birth of their set of triplets.
The stay-at-home mom and her real estate investor husband are parents to Darian, 16; Derrick, 11; 10-year-old twins Dallas and Denver; 8-year-old quintuplets Deonee, Daician, Daiten, Deniko, and Dariz; 4-year-olds Diez and Dior; and 2-year-old triplets Dawsyn, De'Aren, and Dyver.
That's right, 14 kids! The Derricos from Las Vegas were a big hit with fans as viewers watched Karen and Deon's family deal with quarantine life during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, with the show in its third season, will viewers get to see the Derricos' family expand? Are they pregnant again?
Back in Season 2, a sneak peek initially teased that the Derrico family could be pregnant.
The last time we saw the Derricos grapple with a potential addition to the family was in a trailer for Season 2 of Doubling Down With the Derricos. The family was dealing with life's many ups and downs as they navigated their way through the COVID-19 pandemic. On top of all that's going on in their lives, Karen thought she could be pregnant again.
In the sneak peek, she talked to Deon and said, "According to this, I'm a week late."
Deon urged her to take a pregnancy test, and his mother, Marion "GG" Derrico, who can be seen eavesdropping, talked to her son about the possibility that they're pregnant again. She tells him, "What is it you want me to say? Do you want me to say, 'Oh God, I hope it's positive?' When is the line drawn for real?"
While the family began preparing for another child, it seems an addition to the family was not in the cards for them. Karen revealed during Season 2 that she suffered a miscarriage.
"Even though we aren't strangers to miscarriages, it's still a tough heartbreak to endure! Our hearts are broken and pieces of it go out to others that have endured this pain," the family said in a statement to People on June 22, 2021.
This wasn't the first time the couple had dealt with a miscarriage, and during the episode, Deon talked about how Karen had suffered a loss early on in their family planning.
"Each time we get pregnant, it's like our love goes to that child. Our excitement is there for this child. And we have to grieve," he said during the episode.
Is Karen Derrico pregnant now?
Season 3 of Doubling Down With the Derricos revealed early on that Karen was once again pregnant. Because of her history of miscarriages (and of having multiples!) she had an early visit with her OB/GYN in order to test her HCG levels.
Her numbers looked good at week four of her pregnancy, and they way more than doubled in week five, which was an encouraging sign that everything was progressing well.
In Season 3, Episode 6, Karen went to her first ultrasound and learned that her pregnancy was not viable; she had suffered another miscarriage. Deon explained it was actually her seventh miscarriage.
So as far as the Derricos have publicly announced, Karen is not currently pregnant.
