"We need to know": Doubling Down With the Derricos fans hope that Amani is really GG's grandson and Chris' son

Episode 2 of Doubling Down With the Derricos season 4 aired on TLC on Tuesday, June 6 at 8 pm ET. In the new episode, Deon and GG were seen getting a shocking voicemail, which might change their lives forever. A man named Amani contacted Deon and said that he might be the son of Chris, Deon's elder brother who passed away in January 2022.

Deon initially kept on ignoring the calls from his number but felt bad later on for not picking up the phone. He said that it was a lot to take in and that he was facing mixed emotions after hearing the news. Karen also did not know what to tell Deon at the time and was left speechless.


Deon always looked up to his brother and had mentioned several times how his passing was tough on the family. Now, he did not what to do with the news that his brother might have had a son whom he never got a chance to meet.

Doubling Down With the Derricos fans also know that Chris' death was very tough on Deon and Chris' mother GG, who currently has no partner to support her and is undergoing treatment for lung cancer. Fans hoped that Amani was really GG's grandson, so that she could have "purpose" in her life again.
