Britain’s biggest family, The Radfords are expecting their 22nd child.
Childhood sweethearts, Mrs. Radford, 44, and her husband Noel, 48, from Morecambe, Lancashire announced the news in a YouTube clip they posted on Sunday (Oct.21), with the proud mother showing her latest ultrasound.
This comes after the pair who already have three grandchildren promised not to have another child after welcoming the previous one in 2018.
In the video, Mrs. Radford said: ‘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.’
Mrs. Radford said her child is due in April and disclosed she would like a little boy, adding: ‘I wonder if it will be 11 of each – I am feeling a bit boy.’
The most recent child is Bonnie Raye, who was born in November, with the others being 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, and Archie 18 months. Sadly Alfie, the couple’s 17th child, was still born on July 6th 2014
The family, who only claim £170 in child benefits a week, also rely on Mr. Radford’s bakery business to make ends meet and pay for their ten-bedroom house. They spend £350 a week on food and spend three hours tidying up every night to keep their house in check.
