The largest family in Britain has welcomed their baby number 21. Mum and Dad have vowed that their last baby.
Sue and Noel Radford are said to be very excited with newborn daughter Bonnie Raye, who was born on Tuesday weighing 8lb 4oz after a swift 12-minute labour,reports The Mirror.
The couple’s 20 other children are also equally delighted and all lined up ready to hold her as she was welcomed into the family’s 10-bed home in Morecambe, Lancashire, on Wednesday.
Sue, 43, told The Sun: “We’ve both decided we don’t want any more. Bonnie has completed our family.”
And Noel, 47, added: “Some people decide to stop after two or three kids. We’ve made it after 21.”
Sue has also insisted she will not miss being pregnant – and the maternity clothes are going in the bin.
She added: “All the midwives at the hospital were asking if they would see us again next year and we both said, ‘definitely not’.
“We’re just going to keep enjoying the children and enjoy our grandchildren.”
The pair revealed they were expecting baby number 21 in May by posting a video message on YouTube and an ultrasound image of the unborn girl on Instgram.
When the couple welcomed their 8lb 6oz son Archie in September last year, they vowed the little boy would be their last and they were happy to finish on a “nice even number”.
But months later, the family announced it was set to get even bigger with a daughter who will be almost 30 years younger than her oldest sibling.
The parents, whose family featured in the reality programme ’20 Kids And Counting’, say they do not claim any extra state benefits aside from the regular child benefit.
Sue and Noel have been having children for the better part of three decades.
They are already parents to Chris, 29, Sophie, 24, Chloe, 23, Jack, 21, Daniel, 19, Luke, 18, Millie, 17, Katie, 15, James, 14, Ellie, 13, Aimee, 12, Josh, 11, Max, nine, Tillie, eight, Oscar, seven, Casper, six, Hallie, three, Phoebe, two, and Archie, one.
Their son Alfie was stillborn in 2014. Bonnie had the same due date as Alfie.
After Archie was born, the couple said it was “strange” knowing he would be their last.
