Karen Derrico is the perfect definition of a supermom, but sometimes, even a supermom needs a little help. Karen recently came back home to her 11 children and has been looking forward to spending more time with them. Unfortunately, undergoing a C-section for the third time had put Karen in a position where she needed help around the house.

For a long time, Deon Derrico and his mother, GG, were there to help her out. However, GG had to go back to Florida that left the family in a position where they needed help. To make things more complicated, Karen had to go to the hospital constantly as the triplets had not gotten a green light to come back home as they had a premature birth. Karen admitted that going back and forth all the time had let to her taking a lot of stress. At the same time, worrying about their daughter, Dawsyn, who has a hole in her heart, made things worse. Deon admitted that it was getting hard to take care of 11 children while having three children in the hospital.

However, Karen did not feel comfortable having a nanny. Speaking to the camera, she admitted that it was hard to imagine having a helper in the house. Karen admitted that she was thinking about what society might be thinking. She made it clear that even though they have 14 children, it was a decision they made and tried to explain how the circumstance was pushing them into the direction of getting a nanny. 

Speaking more on the topic with a friend, Karen revealed that to have a nanny, she would want someone like Mrs Doubtfire, someone who was good at everything. She further added that there was a probability that more than one nanny would be needed to take care of all the children. While she had a couple of doubts going on her mind, the decision to bring a nanny was becoming concrete when she had help from one of her close friends during the quintuplet's birthday.

Karen was happy to see that she got time to spend with all of her children. Seeing how things were a bit easier for her to handle, Karen hinted that bringing in a nanny may not be completely out of the picture.

'Doubling Down with the Derricos' airs on Tuesdays at 10 pm ET on TLC.
