Derek Delgado was Debbie's boyfriend. They first met when Debbie got in a fight with Holly and her friends over Debbie allegedly raping Matt. She develops a crush on him and begins to take lessons boxing at his gym. They become friends, but Debbie wants to be his girlfriend, not his friend, and begins to tell him this when he kisses her and they begin their relationship. At the end of season 5 Debbie finds out they're having a baby. Overwhelmed with the news of being a teen father, he goes to Florida to live with his grandmother. In season 7 he is mentioned in episode 8 ("You sold me the laundromat, Remember?") Debbie goes to make amends with his sister, who called DCSF on her, and they talk about how he's been asking about Frannie.
