A 43-year-old British woman and her husband have welcomed their 21st child and say they’re done having kids. The woman made similar comments when she gave birth to her 20th kid.


Sue and Noel Radford currently have the biggest family in the UK with more than 20 children. Sue gave birth to Bonnie Raye earlier this month, but the mom has insisted this will be her last pregnancy.


Sue reportedly gave birth to Bonnie after 12-minute labor, successfully bringing the number of her family to 23.

The couple told The Sun:

“We’ve both decided we don’t want any more. Bonnie has completed our family. Some people decide to stop after two or three kids. We’ve made it after 21.”

She also said the older kids were excited to see their new sister and couldn’t wait to cuddle her. “They were all fighting over the first cuddle, Sue revealed. “It’s such a lovely moment when you bring a newborn home, and the others are all lined up ready to hold her.”


Noel, who Sue met when she was only seven, said he and his wife initially planned to have three children. He had a vasectomy done a few years ago after their ninth child but chose to reverse it in hopes of becoming a father again.

Noel and Sue run a bakery in Morecambe, Lancashire, where they have the help of their large brood. It’s almost unbelievable, but Sue has now spent over 800 weeks of her life being pregnant.


“It has to end at some point,” said Sue who had her first child, Christopher, at age 14. She revealed:

"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 maternity clothes will be going in the bin shortly. I won’t miss being pregnant at all,” Sue added.

Their older children do not believe them. Their eldest daughter, Sophie, thinks they won’t stop at an odd number and Max, 9, laughed as he said:

“They say that every year, then every year there’s a baby.”

Apart from being parents-of-21, Sue and Noel also have four grandchildren: one from Christopher and three from Sophie.



Sue and Noel apparently have no difficulty making a baby, but that was sadly not the case for another couple. Erin and Matthew Boelhower wanted kids so badly.

After more than three years of several miscarriages and over 600 IVF injections, Erin got the sad news. She was suffering from conditions that would make it near impossible to conceive or carry a child to full term. It wasn’t until a friend stepped in, that Erin and Matthew found hope.
