Summerlin, NV (KTNV) -- The Derrico quintuplets are spending their first weekend in their home state after a warm welcome from family and friends at Summerlin Hospital.
For Dad, Deon, the shock hasn't worn off from the birth of Deonee, Dariz, Deniko, Daician and Daiten two weeks ago.
Derrico told Action News, "I mean, to have one child is a huge blessing; to be blessed with two children is a huge miracle; but we have five and they're doing well."
By private jet, the babies flew back to the valley on three separate flights, with their Dad, their mom, Evonne and Grandma in tow.
The family temporarily moved to Arizona to get specialized care for the birth. Now, they'll spend time getting stronger at Summerlin Hospital.
Frequent visitors will be their siblings, a seven-year old sister; three-year old brother, and one-year old twin brothers.
After three months of being away from home, Evonne Dericco told Action News, what she's most looking forward to is sleeping in her own bed.
The Derrico's said they've been overwhelmed by the emails, cards, calls and prayers that they've received.
The quintuplets are expected to stay at Summerlin Hospital for about a month.
