Family With 19 Kids Just Announced They're Expecting Baby Number 20

Britain's biggest family, who have 19 kids, just announced that they're expecting baby number 20!

Parents Sue and Noel Radford live in Lancashire with their 10 boys and 9 girls, but they will have to make some extra room for their newest addition in September 2017. In a cute Instagram post, the couple shared the big news.

"Boys "“ 10, Girls "“ 9 and BABY makes 20," they wrote on a chalk board.

If you thought 20 kids was amazing, Sue had her last baby just 7 months ago, and she's already expecting again! Baby Phoebe is the youngest at 7 months, and Chris is the eldest at 27. Their other children include:  Sophie, 22, Chloe, 21, Jack, 19, Daniel, 17, Luke, 15, Millie, 14, Katie, 13, James, 12, Ellie, 11, Aimee, 10, Josh, 9, Max, 7, Tilly, 6, Oscar, 4, Casper, 3 and toddler Hallie.

Although it's an anomaly nowadays to have such a large family, Sue and Noel have received an outpouring of support from the community.

"I had a baby around the same time as your last one (July) and couldn't imagine being pregnant already," one mom wrote. "I have four and often think how crazy i am for having so many!! You are a natural."

Another encouraging mom said "Omg, I envy you sooooo much, I had baby number 7 five months ago and have decided she is the last one... Mind you we have said that after everyone we have had! Congratulations."

As you can imagine, Sue and Noel aren't your typical couple. They'd both had adoptive parents growing up, which influenced their decision to keep the baby when Sue became pregnant at the age of 14.

After baby #18, Sue thought it would be her last, but she welcomed Phoebe in August 2016. In an interview, the mom of 19 said she was open to having more children. "Never say never," she said. Noel added: "If it happens it happens, that's how we roll."

But how do they manage with so many kids? According to Metro UK, Noel works as a baker and starts at 5am every morning. His flexible schedule allows him to come home and drive the school-age children to their classes. The youngest kids stay at home with mom.
