Britain’s biggest family have welcomed baby No20 — and vowed the little boy is their last. Sue Radford, 42, gave birth to 8lb 6oz Archie on Monday after an hour’s labour. Husband Noel, 46, revealed he won’t have the snip — despite them stopping at their 11th son.
Sue, who gets no state handouts apart from child benefit, said: “We’re happy to be finishing on a nice even number. I’m just chuffed he is here safe and sound. It’s strange knowing you’re not going to have any more. Our daughter Chloe said: ‘I believe you now.’ I don’t think she has before, but because I’ve said (this is the last) a few times now she does. We both think this is it. I feel sad in a way but now we can get on and enjoy the kids.”
Archie joins Chris, 28, Sophie, 23, Chloe, 22, Jack, 20, Daniel, 18, Luke and Millie 16, Katie, 14, James, 13, Ellie, 12, Aimee, 11, Josh, ten, Max, eight, Tillie, seven, Oscar, five, Casper, four, Hallie, two, and Phoebe, 13 months. Sue lost a boy Alfie when 23 weeks’ pregnant in 2014. The couple are also grandparents to Sophie’s three children.
