Las Vegas family with quintuplets continues to thrive

By Rikki Cheese. CREATED Mar 25, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Big sister Darrien, little brother Derrick and twins Dallas and Denver have been hanging out with their five healthy new, siblings for about six months now.

They and their parents, Deon and Evonne, couldn't be happier.

Evonne said, "I firmly believe that when God blesses you, he doesn't just bless one aspect of it. He blesses all of it. I look at them and I'm amazed."

It's been a whirlwind since the quintuplets were born, but the Derrico's are getting a lot of support.

Deon said, "Between the community, the local community, and then our church family, we have been taken great care of."

Donations have been pouring in from national programs like ABC'S "The View," seen on ABC. The show donated a year's worth of diapers, and lots of coupons for more. That comes in handy when you're changing diapers every two hours, and going through about 20 bottles of formula a day.

Deon admits it's work, but said it's all about family values, "We believe in raising and teaching our children to not just live in our house, but live in the world."

He added reality TV is in their future, but there is one non-negotiable stipulation. The show must portray what's real.  A family of faith and love.
