Britain’s biggest family welcome baby NUMBER 20 – and vow it will be their last (Photos)


Britain’s biggest family The Radfords have welcomed baby NUMBER 20 – and and vow the little boy will be their last.
Sue Radford gave birth to 8lb 6oz Archie on Monday after a one hour labour.

The 42-year-old and her husband Noel, 46, have been having children for the best part of three decades.


Sue told the Sun : “We’re happy to be finishing on a nice even number.
“I’m just chuffed he is here safe and sound.
“It’s strange knowing you’re not going to have any more.


“Our daughter Chloe said: ‘I believe you now.’ I don’t think she has before, but because I’ve said (this is the last) a few times now she does.”
Sue and Noel face a monumental task each day just to feed, clothe and ferry about their huge brood.
The couple, who featured in the reality show ’19 Kids And Counting’, were relaxed about another mouth to feed when asked earlier this year.
The couple from Heysham, Lancashire, are already parents to Chris, 28, Sophie, 23, Chloe, 21, Jack, 20, Daniel, 18, Luke, 16, Millie, 15, Katie, 14, James, 13, Ellie, 12, Aimee, 11, Josh, nine, Max, eight, Tilly, seven, Oscar, five, Casper, four and toddler Hallie.
Despite their enormous clan, the Radfords say they manage to run a relatively stress-free household.
During their TV show, Noel revealed: “Bathing the little ones is like having a sheep dip.
“We go through gallons of shampoo.”
Noel and Sue do not claim any extra state benefits aside from the regular child benefit.


Noel described the Christmas dinner as being like “a conveyor belt” of food.
Sue got pregnant with their first child Chris at the age of just 14.
Now, she and Noel also have three grandchildren.
The couple spend an estimated £30,000 a year of their own money bringing up their children – including birthdays with a budget of £100 per child and Christmas at £100 to £250 per child.
In addition, they also have a holiday abroad each year.
Noel and Sue said their original plan was to have three children, but they loved the experience so much that they simply kept going.
