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.

Now the couple have 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.
