The Radfords have expanded their family once again, but this will be the last time, they assured.
Britain's biggest family
The Radford family rose to fame when they appeared on a Channel 4 documentary TV show, "15 Kids and Counting." At the time, they were believed to be one of Britain's largest family and, since then, parents Noel and Sue have gone on to have six more children.
In 2017, when they welcomed their 20th child, Sue stated that that was going to be their last. However, it looks like things have changed.
At the time, the mom told the UK Sun:
We are sure that’s it now. I think about increasing risks with my age and I’ve been more tired with the last two pregnancies.
Sue had her first child when she was only 14, and she and Noel got married when she was 17.
Baby number 21
The 43-year-old mom recently welcomed a new baby. Bonnie Raye was born on November 6th after only 12 minutes of labor. The little one weighed 8lb 4oz at birth.
According to Sue, the other children were very excited to welcome Bonnie to the family. Even though they have said it many times before, Sue believes that their 21st child will be their last.
She explained that she and her husband have decided that they do not want any more kids. "It had to come to an end at some point," she said.
Sue revealed that she is serious this time around by stating she would throw away her maternity clothes. There are no regrets, though, as the mother said she would not miss being pregnant. Now it's time for them to simply enjoy their children and grandchildren.
Their firstborn, Christopher, is almost 30 years old. In fact, little Bonnie Raye is actually an aunt to Christopher's 16-month-old daughter, Maisie. Bonnie has other nieces and a nephews as well, as Sue and Noel's eldest daughter, Sophie, is a mother of three.
Congratulations to this large family. We bet there's never a dull moment in their home.
