New Derrico Triplets Are Born
In a video clip posted on TLC’s YouTube channel, Karen delivered the triplets via C-section. This was highly emotional and tense for the couple. Deon explained to the cameras that they previously lost one of their triplets, so they were praying that this time, all three babies would be okay.

Doubling Down With The Derricos Update: Baby Dawsyn Needs Heart Surgery
After the Derrico triplets were delivered, Deon and Karen were told that all three Derrico babies were breathing on their own. However, they were later updated with some alarming information.
The doctor tells Deon that there is a problem with his daughter, Dawsyn Derrico. The firstborn of the triplets has a hole in her heart. She will need to undergo two heart surgeries. But to actually go through the surgery, the baby will need to gain some weight and get stronger.
“Dawsyn will need at least two surgeries on her. The first surgery would be to put a stint in her heart. And then, the second surgery would be to close up the hole. And the thing is, she also has to gain enough weight. She’ll need to get stronger for the first surgery and even more so for the second.”
Deon mentioned that the heart surgery bombshell is taking him back to the heart-wrenching pain of losing his son. Will baby Dawsyn end up being okay? We certainly hope so and will find out more when the next episode of Doubling Down With The Derricos airs on TLC.
