Sue Radford reveals she’s spent £25k on prams for her bumper brood as the family prepares to welcome ANOTHER baby
SUE Radford revealed that she and Noel have spent £25,000 on prams for their bumper brood of 22 over the years.
The mum of Britain’s biggest family made the revelation in this week’s episode of Channel 5’s 22 Kids & Counting.
In tonight’s installment the couple prepare to welcome yet another baby to the family as their daughter Millie, 19, is set to become a first-time mum.
Wanting to get their sixth grandchild off to the best start Sue, 45, and Noel, 50, head out to the shops to pick out a swish new pram for mum-to-be Millie.
“When you’re having a new baby to get a new pram is the most important thing,” Sue says.
“We’ve been through a minimum of 30 prams,” Noel adds.
And those prams certainly add up with the couple spending no less than £25,000 on prams for their children, much to Noel’s horror.
He says: “I think about what we’ve spent on prams and what we could have had instead, a nice flash car, a Porsche on the driveway or something like that.
“It is what it is, that was our choice, buy prams instead.”
Although they’ve sworn to have no more children themselves, Sue and Noel are now forking out for their grandchildren’s prams, with Millie’s new wheels coming in at a cool £1,500.
Tonight’s episode sees the 19-year-old welcoming the arrival of her daughter Ophelia who was born in September.
The new mum recently revealed that Ophelia’s father isn't currently a part of his daughter's life, but she has plenty of help from the rest of her large family.
Her siblings include Chris, 31, Sophie, 26, Chloe, 25, Jack, 23, Daniel, 21, Luke, 20, Katie, 17, James, 17, Ellie, 15, Aimee, 14, Josh, 13, Max, 11, Tillie, 10, Oscar, nine, Casper, eight, Hallie, five, Phoebe, four, Archie, three, Bonnie, two, and Heidie who was born in April.
The new mum is currently living with her parents – who welcomed their 22nd child earlier this year – and 17 of her siblings in a 10-bedroom former care home in Lancashire and said she has "no plans" to move out any time soon.
Luckily, the mum-of-one can learn some parenting tips from her mum Sue, including how to put the little ones to sleep.
22 Kids & Counting airs tonight at 9pm on Channel 5
