Meet the Derricos, a family of 13 who are expecting triplets.

Karen Derrico and her husband Deon both come from families with a history of birthing multiples.

Karen and Deon have had three sets of multiples–and are now expecting their fourth–all of which were conceived naturally.

The Derricos had their first two children individually, then twins, followed by quintuplets, then twins and now Karen is pregnant with triplets.

Some of Karen’s pregnancy cravings include veggies, pasta and orange soda.

Karen nurses all of her babies until at least 8 months. They usually wean themselves after that point.

The Derricos' oldest child, Darian, dreams of becoming a video editor.

Karen delivered the quintuplets at 32 weeks gestation.

In the Derrico house, the children’s bedtime is 8 p.m. on school nights.

The Derricos sometimes hand down clothes to the next sibling, but there are usually not enough outfits for the next group, so they often have to buy new clothes.

The Derrico kids include: Darian, Derrick, Dariz, Daician, Deonee, Daiten, Deniko, Denver, Dallas, Dior and Diez.
