The Derricos, who went viral when they welcomed triplets, making their kids 14, are preparing to welcome another child.
Karen, 40, and Deon Derrico, 49, welcomed four sets of multiple births back to back after their two oldest children Darrian, 16 and Derrick, 11, were born (read here).
Now the couple has revealed they may be welcoming a 15th child to the family in the new series of TLC’s Doubling Down with the Derricos.
In a clip of the show, Deon can be seen questioning Karen about her weird food cravings as she munches on pickles.
She says: "The pie smell is making me sick."
Karen then checks her calendar and realizes her period is a week late and Deon demands she takes a pregnancy test, with his mum adding: "When is the line drawn, for real?"
She later adds: "Not another baby. It’s overwhelming with the ones that are here."

Karen and Deon first had Darrian, 16 and Derrick, 11. Then they welcomed twins Dallas and Denver, 10, followed by Deniko, Dariz, Deonee, Daician and Daiten, 8.

They then welcomed twins Diez and Dior, 3, who are often referred to as the "triplins" as their triplet brother Carter, passed away just a couple of hours after delivery.

In 2019 Karen and Deon became parents again, welcoming triplets Dawsyn, De’Aren, and Dyver, rounding off their brood to 14.
Now, they are preparing for a 15th child.

A US couple with 14 kids, including naturally conceived quintuplets, triplets and twins, spoke about life as a large family and what it takes to run their home.
Karen and Deon Derrico, who live in Las Vegas, have four sets of naturally conceived multiples. They have twins, two sets of triplets, and a set of quintuplets. They also have two single children.
They are parents to Darian, 13; Erek, 8; twins Dallas and Denver, 7; quintuplets Deniko, Dariz, Deonee, Daician and Daiten, 5; and two sets of triplets.

The family's life was documented in a news TLC series called Doubling Down with the Derricos. The series began airing on August 11, 2020.
Filming for the show began in 2019 when they had 11 children and Karen was pregnant with triplets. The triplets have been born, making them 14 kids.

In the series, Karen revealed she spends $3,500 a month on the food shop and does 18 loads of laundry every week. They also use 20 rolls of toilet paper and 15 packets of waffles every week.

Karen, a stay-at-home mum, said her husband spends a fortune to keep everyone well fed.

Karen, 40, reveals: "The amount of money that we spend on groceries, oh my gosh. $2,500 to $3,500, easy."
"In a week we go through 15 boxes of waffles, 20 rolls of toilet paper," adds Deon, 49.

"Eighteen loads of clothes a week," Karen explains.

Karen adds: "I am a stay-at-home mother and my phenomenal, handsome husband over here is a real estate investor.
"We chose to have a large family. We also chose to make sure we could provide for our large family."

Karen and Deon have multiples on both sides of their family, but Deon says theirs is more: "We have the most multiples that anyone has ever heard of".
After their first daughter was born, Karen suffered two miscarriages, so was put on progesterone to sustain her next pregnancy. Her next child was born 5 years later, also a single birth. After that, she started having multiples.

Karen said: "All of our children were naturally conceived. Not one round of IVF.

Deon adds: "Having four sets of multiples back to back? It's like getting struck by lightning while getting struck by lightning.
"Many parents know with just one child, two children, it's a job. But when you have soon-to-be 14, it's a job."

The couple admit they have their "good days and bad days", but say there's always enough love to go round.
They say they had to find creative ways to keep their kids busy during the pandemic.

"So we do scavenger hunts and we do learning games and things like that and we do a talent show," Karen said.
"And we wrestle a lot. Boys against the girls, the older ones against the younger ones," Deon said.
Doubling Down with the Derricos shows every Tuesday night at 10pm on TLC.
