TLC Doubling Down With the Derricos spoilers tease that life in the Derrico home is full of rambunctiousness and fun. How could it not be with a group of 14 joy-filled children to raise? But now viewers are concerned that all of the stress could be taking a toll on Karen and Deon Derrico’s marriage.
Explosive show spoilers reveal that Karen herself tells her mother-in-law that she and Deon are not communicating as they should. Is this a sign of trouble on the horizon?
Is the Derrico’s marriage under stress and strain?
The TLC reality show family has captured America’s heart and fans are understandably protective of the wholesome clan. A Season 1 episode of Doubling Down With the Derricos saw mom Karen admit to her sympathetic mother-in-law, Gigi Derrico, that things could be better.
Gigi then told the TLC producers that when she raised two kids, maintaining a healthy marriage was a handful and she can’t imagine how her son and daughter-in-law manage with raising 14 young ones.
The senior Mrs. Derrico had some patient words of wisdom for Karen Derrico
Karen said she and her husband aren’t on the same page very often as their kids need the majority of their attention. For instance, Karen told Gigi that she is experiencing breastfeeding bonding issues with baby Dawsyn but she hasn’t told this to Deon.
Part of the issue is that their schedules give them barely enough time to say hi and bye let alone have a serious conversation. In an interview with The Things, Karen said, “It’s like we have two different focuses. I mean, I am inundated with three new babies, one needs extra care. And then he’s got the focus of to and from school, all the extracurricular activities, running a business, running the properties.”
Karen feels frustrated with the lack of communication in the house
Adding to the stress level, Dawsyn underwent surgery to place a stent in her heart then one week later she got pneumonia and jaundice and had to stay in the hospital for weeks.
Will this loving couple be able to find their way back to open lines of communication? The truth is that every marriage has its ups and downs, and the Derrico’s are no different—but they have many more challenges than other couples, to be sure.
Stay tuned fans, the Derrico family is about to face down a significant life challenge.
