You cannot do this with normal VPC as it won't allow transive

Create a Transit VPC and connect Direct Connect to Transit VPC. From Transit VPC you can connect many VPC. this is the one way to share Direct connect across multiple VPC's

Another way is use Transit Gateway to share direct connect to multiple VPC's. This is a fully managed service and easy to setup when compare to Transit VPC
