A possible new addition to The Derrico Brood was hinted at in a teaser for the new season. After Deon Derrico received a voicemail from a stranger named Amani who may not be a stranger to the family. TLC’s Derrico family explores the ups and downs of Deon and his wife Karen Derrico and their 16 offspring.
His kids are (Darian, 17; Derrick, 12; twins Dallas and Denver; quintuplets Deonee, Daician, Daiten, Deniko, and Dariz; twins Diez and Dior; and triplets Dawsyn, De’Aren, and Dyver).
Deon lost his brother Chris when the latter unexpectedly died in early 2020. But, little did Chris or Deon or the fans of the show know that one day a phone call would give them a beacon of hope that would do its best to fill the hole that Chris left after his death. On the other side of the call was Amani who claims to be a “Derrico,” a son of Chris that even Chris didn’t know about.
Doubling Down With The Derricos: Meet Amani Derrico, Chris Derrico Son
According to a sneak peek video on TLC’s Twitter page, Deon Derrico got a voicemail from someone named Amani who claimed to be his late brother Christopher’s child. In the video, Deon admitted to missing a call to his wife Karen Derrico, and expressed amazement at hearing Amani’s voicemail and his claims. Deon’s wife Karen tried to console him as he broke down over the prospect of a family member he had never met.
In Ep. 3, We Didn’t Start the Fire, viewers heard, “My name is Amani,” Amani said in the voicemail. “Your brother Chris could possibly be my dad.”
“I don’t know what to think – it’s a lot to take in,” Deon told the cameras. “Christopher was my older brother and I really looked up to him growing up.” “Chris’s passing was a total surprise to us,” he continued. Deon said that he had a “mix of emotions” over the possibility that his late brother could have a son he’d never known.
Chris, who passed away abruptly on January 27, 2020, probably had no idea Amani had a son and had never met him either. Deon has subsequently verified Amani is Derrico and Chris’s son, however, viewers won’t learn the results until a later show.
“Flanked by my beautiful mother GG and my handsome nephew Amani with a picture of his father, my brother Chris, on the wall behind us,” Deon captioned the photo from December 2022. However, the post has been removed since.
Amani could be a member of GG and Deon’s family, but GG admits that they required the DNA test to prove it first. GG requested her potential grandchild undergo a DNA test to ensure he is Chris’s child during their webcam conversation with Amani during the season. Amani acknowledged that she “failed” her late kid, but GG insisted that being a Derrico could alter her life for the better.
After her lung cancer resurfaced at the end of Season 3, viewers have seen GG go through chemotherapy treatments throughout the season. In Season 4, GG claimed that discovering she might have another grandchild she was unaware of had given her life a new, worthwhile “purpose.”
Deon was worried that GG would be “devastated” if Amani wasn’t their biological relative because of the newfound happiness. The family has, thankfully, learned the truth, which will probably have an impact on upcoming episodes of The Derricos.
One of Deon’s most recent was about Amani’s father Chris. He wrote about his brother: “Doubling Down With #TheDERRICOs would like to thank everyone for your prayers and well wishes for the passing of my brother Mr. Christopher Shonnald Turner, gone but never forgotten.”
