TLC to premiere show featuring America's 'first Latino sextuplets'
TLC announced today that it will debut a new series on Sept. 14 featuring the Carpio sextuplets, or whom the cable network is billing as “America’s first Latino sextuplets.” The four boys and two girls, at 22 months, just learned to walk and will be taught two languages in the eight-part series Sextuplets Take New York. The mom and dad is Victor and Digna Carpio, who also share their Queens, NY home with a 9-year-old son.
The babies were born weighing less than 2 lbs each. The show is from Figure 8 Films, the production company that is responsible for Kate Plus 8, Table for 12 and 19 Kids and Counting, all on TLC.
