Sextuplets Take New York is an American reality television series which premiered on TLC on September 14, 2010. The show features the Carpio family, consisting of parents Victor and Digna and their seven children, including sextuplets, the first Latino set born in America. The series follows the family through their daily lives, focusing on the challenges of raising multiple children in a modest home in Queens, New York. The family originally appeared in a one-hour episode of Multitude of Multiples.

Family history[edit]

Victor and Digna Carpio are both immigrants to America. As a child, Digna was sent by her divorced parents to the Ecuadorian mountains to work.[1] When she emigrated to New York she spoke no English. Victor Carpio works as a maintenance man for the city Parks Department,[2] and the family lives on his income (about $1800 per month[3]).

The Carpio sextuplets are billed as America's first Latino sextuplets, and are bilingual, speaking both Spanish and English.[4] They were born 15 weeks premature, and several of them suffer medical issues as a consequence.[5]
