Who are Sue and Noel Radford and how many children do they have? – The Sun
NOEL and Sue Radford are at the helm of Britain's biggest family.
But who are the couple – who will star with their brood in a new TV show – and how many children do they have?
Who are Sue and Noel Radford?
The couple were both given up for adoption at birth.
Sue, now 45, fell pregnant with Chris at just 14 in 1989 and was determined to keep the baby.
She married Noel, now 49, four years later – and they were soon expecting their second child Sophie.
Just over a year later they learned they were expecting Chloe – and babies have followed in quick succession ever since.
The family do not claim benefits and keep finances afloat through a successful family-owned bakery.
They live in a ten-bed home, which they bought for £240,000 in 2004.
Each day the family consumes 18 pints of milk, three litres of juice and eat three boxes of cereal at breakfast.
Their supermarket trips cost £250 a week and they have outgrown their 15-seater minivan.
In a video on their YouTube channel, they revealed that they are filming a new TV show.
Sue said: “We’re filming for a series at the moment."
Noel added: “It’s a series this time, a three-part.
“We started filming but everything that has been filmed has been by us. They sent all the big cameras, the tripod, the Go-Pros, everything and all the interviews have been done via Zoom.
“I’ve been doing the filming, Luke’s done a bit of the filming so I think when it does go on the telly you will definitely notice it’s not been done professionally.”
It’s not the first time the family has been filmed for TV, and first appeared on Channel 4 in a documentary called '15 kids and counting' in 2012.
Noel added: “We’re not with Channel 4 anymore.”
"Watch this space," Sue added. "We’re not sure when it will be shown. It might be the end of the year, beginning of next year.”
When did Sue Radford last give birth?
Sue gave birth to their 22nd child – a little girl – on April 3, 2020.
Shortly afterwards, they named their daughter Heidie Rose.
She has spent more than 800 weeks of her life pregnant, has sworn this will be her last baby.
How many children do they have?
The Radfords have 22 children.
The couple's children are: including 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, Archie 18 months, Bonnie, one, and Heidie, one month.
Sadly, the couple's 17th child Alfie was stillborn on July 6, 2014.
Their two eldest children, Chris and Sophie, no longer live at home.
They are also grandparents to Sophie’s three children.
