Britain’s biggest family's mum Sue Radford reveals she's expecting her 22nd baby in sweet vlog


You might think your family is large, but Sue Radford has just announced that she’s expecting her 22nd baby with husband Noel.

The Radford Family are currently the largest in Britain, and frequently update their social media followers with fun family updates.

Taking to Instagram, the family teased an upcoming vlog by sharing a photograph of editing software and writing, ‘Just uploading an exciting vlog that will be going live tonight ❤😊'.

Many of the family’s followers took to the comments to guess what it could be, with most of them assuming that a new arrival was on the way.

The happy news was confirmed via their YouTube channel, with mum Sue saying, “So now you know guys, we’re having a baby. We’re just coming up to 15 weeks pregnant and we’ll be able to find out the gender of the baby soon.”

The new addition to the Radford household is due in April, and she added, “I wonder if it will be 11 of each – I am feeling a bit boy.”

The family is currently made up of Sue, Noel, and their 21 children, six of which are now adults aged 18 or over.

Together, the couple has Chris, 30, Sophie, 25, Chloe, 23, Jack, 22, Daniel, 20, Luke, 18, Millie, 17, Katie, 16, James, 15, Ellie, 14, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, seven, Casper, six, Hallie, three, Phoebe, two, Archie, one, and youngest daughter Bonnie Raye who was born last November.

Eldest children Chris and Sophie have moved out, and Sophie is now a mother of three. The rest of them still live at home with their parents and siblings in their 10 bedroom house, that apparently takes three hours a day to tidy up.

Food shopping is expensive for the Radfords, costing around £350 a week for groceries. Each day the family gets through 18 pints of milk, four toilet rolls, and three boxes of cereal!

We’re excited to find out more about baby number 22, and whether or not it’ll even out the family to 11 each.

Congratulations to the Radford family!
