A follower of Doubling Down With the Derricos shared the news about Juan on the Reddit forum site because they felt confused about Deon Derrico’s children. In their caption, the OP said:

So… who the hell was Juan?
If he adopted a teen named Jasper and changed his name to Derron, who exactly was this Juan character he was referring to here?

Nobody seems to know. Perhaps it was a typo for Jasper. He could be almost anyone. After all, Deon Derrico initially confused fans because they thought Eric Jefferson was a nephew. Some people thought the friend who helped raise the kids might have been a son as well.

One member of the discussion wrote, “Yes, I found this on a fundamental site: “Deon has claimed to have an older son, Juan. He has never been mentioned again or since. No other information is known.”.

Who do you think Juan is? Do you think he is the same person named Jasper who Deon Derrico adopted in 2005, who later took on the name, Derron Derrico? Or, is there another son that TLC fans have never heard met? Sound off in the comments below, and come back here often for all your Doubling Down With the Derricos news.
