If you tune into TLC, chances are you've heard of Doubling Down With the Derricos. The series follows Las Vegas couple Deon and Karen Derrico and their 14 children. What sets this super-sized family apart is how many sets of multiples they have. Because the Derricos are parents to twins, triplets, and quintuplets (and all with names starting with the letter "D"), things can get confusing for viewers — and fast.
"Having four sets of multiples back to back? It's like getting struck by lightning while getting struck by lightning," Deon says on the show. "Many parents know with just one child, or two children, it's a job. But when you have soon-to-be 14, it's a job," he emphasized.
"We have our good days and our bad days," Karen says. "There's always enough love."
Allow us to break down the Derrico family names and ages to help clear up any confusion about their brood — which includes two sets of twins, a set of quintuplets, and a set of triplets.
Derron Derrico (Age: 31)
Deon adopted Derron before meeting Karen in 2002. Derron was born in August 1991. He will turn 32 in 2022, which makes him by far the oldest child to be associated with the famous family.
Deon and Derron's relationship hasn't always been flawless. Derron previously accused Deon of forgery, per Screen Rant. Likely due to their rocky relationship, Derron has yet to appear on Doubling Down With the Derricos.
Darian Derrico (Age: 16)
Darian Derrico is Deon and Karen's oldest daughter — and judging by Karen's Instagram, it looks like she's been doing a pretty decent job convincing her mom to participate in making TikTok videos. At the beginning of the family's TLC series, Darian was 14. She celebrates her birthday on Dec. 9 each year and will turn 17 in 2022.
Derrick Derrico (Age: 11)
Derrick Derrico is Deon and Karen's second-oldest kid — and also the last singleton pregnancy Karen has experienced. Derrick was born on July 18, 2010, which makes him 11 years old. Since Derrick, Karen has had four back-to-back pregnancies with multiples.
Denver and Dallas (Age: 10)
Twins Denver and Dallas are the Derricos' first set of multiples. They were born on Oct. 9, 2011. "Dallas is our entertainer, and Denver just wants to be the boss," Deon explains in a TLC clip introducing the twins. "They're both extremely smart," adds Karen.
"God made me first, and then God knew I would be born and [want] to have a twin," one of the twins says later. "So that's how this nerd came along and messed up my life."
"Nerd?! I'm not a nerd," his twin protests.
Deniko, Dariz, Deonee, Daician, and Daiten (Age: 8)
Karen gave birth to quintuplets on Sept. 6, 2013. The quints consist of two boys, Deniko and Dariz, and three girls, Deonee, Daician, and Daiten. They will turn 9 in the fall of 2022.
Diez and Dior (Age: 4)
Next up is the second set of Derrico twins: Diez and Dior. They will turn 5 on May 23, 2022. Diez and Dior were actually part of a set of triplets. Tragically, their brother, Carter, died shortly after birth — which is why Karen and Deon often refer to Diez and Dior as "triplens."
"They were triplets up until Carter passed, so we call them 'triplens' because they're both triplets and twins," she explained on Instagram.
Dawsyn, De'Aren, and Dyver (Age: 2)
Karen and Deon's youngest kids, a set of triplets named Dawsyn, De'Aren, and Dyver, were born on July 6, 2019. Karen went into labor when she was 28 weeks pregnant, according to Screen Rant. The super-mama has since shared updates about her breastfeeding journey with her Instagram followers, as well as glimpses of the babies.
