’Biggest family’ getting even bigger with baby 21 on the way
BRITAIN'S biggest family is set to become even larger with baby number 21 on the way.
On Monday, Susan Radford yesterday posted a video message confirming the happy news and revealed the baby will be a girl.
The 42-year-old last gave birth in September last year and vowed baby Archie would be her last.
But she has also shown off an ultrasound photo of the baby girl with the caption: "We can't wait to welcome you into the family precious little one..#soblessed".
Hardworking Sue and her husband Noel, 46, from Morecambe, Lancashire in the United Kingdom run a successful family-owned bakery.
They claim £170 ($AU300) a week in child benefit.
The family live in a 10-bed home which they bought for £240,000 ($AU424,000) in 2004.
The new arrival will join Chris, 28, Sophie, 23, Chloe, 22, Jack, 20, Daniel, 18, Luke and Millie 16, Katie, 14, James, 13, Ellie, 12, Aimee, 11, Josh, 10, Max, 8, Tillie, 7, Oscar, 5, Casper, 4, Hallie, 2, Phoebe, 13 months, and Archie, who was born premature, now 8 months.
The couple are also grandparents to Sophie's three children.
Noel, who runs the bakery, had a vasectomy during Sue's ninth pregnancy but he had it reversed when the couple longed for more children.
He said: "Having it reversed is worse than going in the first time. I won't be going back again. We'll work something out."
Sue and Noel were both given up for adoption at birth.
She fell pregnant with Chris at just 14 in 1989 and was determined to keep the baby. The couple wed four years later.
The Radfords starred in Channel 4's 16 Kids and Counting four years ago.
The family drinks 18 pints of milk and three litres of juice a day and eats three boxes of cereal at breakfast.
Their supermarket trips cost £250 ($AU441) a week and they have outgrown their 15-seater mini-van.
And last Christmas, they tucked into three turkeys, 3.5 kilos of potatoes, 56 Yorkshire puddings and a massive supply of vegetables.
But the family don't appear to have any intention of stopping.
Noel said in the past: "We set out to maybe have three children but enjoyed having the kids around so just carried on.
"We're addicted to having all these kids. We just love it."
