After Sue gave birth to Archie last year, the couple had said they were done. Sue stated that she felt it was best to stop on a 'nice even number.'

Noel agreed, saying he thought that was the best time to stop. "I feel sad in a way," he said in September 2017 "but now we can get on and enjoy the kids."

The couple met when they were kids and Sue was only 14 years old when they had their first child, 28 years ago. At the time, they considered giving the child up for adoption but they changed their mind as they themselves were also adopted.

Noel did get a vasectomy after they found out they were expecting their ninth child. However, it was later reversed when the couple desired to have more children.
