By The Numbers: TLC's Newest Show Sextuplets Take New YorkToniFitz76
TLC apparently never met a family of multiples it didn’t like (well, except Octomom). The network behind “19 Kids and Counting” and “Kate Plus 8” is welcoming a new family to the air with “Sextuplets Take New York,” which debuts on Sept. 14Monday night.
Dubbed as the country’s first set of Latino sextuplets, the 22-month-olds in question belong to Victor and Digna Carpio, who also have a 9-year-old boy. They live in Queens, and they were featured on an earlier TLC show about the challenge of raising multiples.
Now that the Carpios have joined the network, here’s a look at these TLC shows by the numbers:
34 number of kids between the Gosselins, the Duggars and now the Carpios (35, if you count the Duggars’ grandchild)
16 number of girls (17 including the Duggars’ granddaughter)
18 number of boys
4 sets of multiples (Duggar twins, Gosselin twins, Gosselin sextuplets, Carpio sextuplets)
2 number of soccer teams these three families could form with substitutes
50 number of diapers the Carpio sextuplets go through per day
10.6 million number of people who watched Jon and Kate Gosselin announce their separation on “Jon & Kate Plus 8” last year
11 number of cats the Duggar family has had over the years
