Some people come from big families while others come from enormous ones!
Sue and Noel Radford, 44 and 46 respectively, are part of the latter. The couple has 21 children, soon to be 22!
That’s right, a couple from Morecambe, Lancashire is giving the Duggars a run for their money!
The couple’s children range from 1-years-old to 30-years-old.
In a video posted on Youtube on October 20, the couple announced that they are expecting a new addition to their family.
Though, just last year, the couple said they were doing having children after baby 21!
The Radford’s keep the world up-to-date on their busy lives with their vlog, which now has over 100 thousand subscribers and over 8 million views combined!
Needless to say, they are quite busy.
In addition to their growing family, the couple runs a popular bakery company called, Radford’s Pie Company.
In the video announcement, the couple reveals that they have yet to know the gender of the little one but Sue wonders if it will be “11 of each.”
“I am feelin’ a bit boy,” she says.
Noel agrees but admits they thought the same last time and were wrong!
It sounds like no matter how many children a couple has, one can never be sure!
One thing the couple does know is that they are NOT having twins!
“There is only one,” Sue says. “I’m tellin’ you guys, I don’t do twins.”
Whether the couple is having twins or not doesn’t make much of a difference when it comes to their already full house.
All of their children live at home besides two, Chris and Sophie. Sophie now has three children of her own, growing the family even more.
The names and ages of all of their children are, 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, 9; Oscar, 7; Casper, 6; Hallie, 3; Phoebe, 2; and Archie, 18 months.
At one point the couple decided to stop having children. Noel had a vasectomy when Sue was pregnant with their ninth child. But the couple decided that they wanted more!
Having that many children is sure to run up the bill. The Daily Mail revealed the couple’s cost of living and it is quite mind-boggling.
The family lives in a 10-bedroom house that they purchased in 2004. The house cost them about $265,000 (or £240,000).
Sue and Neal spend about $453.70 (or £350) on food each week!
If they decide to eat out, that runs the family about nearly $200!
In order to keep their house clean, the couple spends around three hours every night cleaning up after their children.
Whew. I’m getting tired just thinking about it!
But there’s more! When it comes to their laundry, the couple easily have about 39 pounds of laundry to do every week!
Vacation? They always plan to bring at least seven suitcases, minimum, for the trip.
Sue describes the packing process as a “military operation.”
But the family is just like any other who simply want to enjoy their time together. One of their favorite pastimes is going to the movies.
Sue told “FEMAIL” in July:
“We do like to go to the cinema, especially in the holidays when the kids are a bit bored, it’s raining and there’s not much else for them to do. But it can be up to £10 per person so it can work out really expensive!”
A single trip easily sets the couple back at least $100.
But the couple is happy and loves the family they created. There can never be a price tag put on that!
We wish them all the best!
