The largest family in England just got even bigger as Sue Radford and husband Noel welcomed their 21st child this weekend, a baby girl named Bonnie Raye.
The family has gained international attention for their constant expansions, and the U.K.'s Metro noted that they are back in the news this week for their newest addition to the family. Bonnie came into the world at 8-pounds, 4-ounces on Tuesday, and the report noted that her 20 other siblings were thrilled to meet her.
There is quite a gap now between the oldest Radford child and the youngest. Bonnie Rayes's oldest brother, Chris, is 29 years old, and her youngest sibling is 14-month-old Archie.
As to how they were able to have children for nearly three decades, the Radfords got a very early start. Sue and Noel met and fell in love when they were children, and Sue first got pregnant at the age of 14. As the Express noted, the couple was pressured to give the baby up for adoption but they were determined to raise Chris, and they moved into a home together.
Three years later, Sue gave birth to her second child, a girl named Sophie. Since then they have gone no more than three years without welcoming a new member of the family, and the last couple of years have been especially busy. With the addition of Bonnie Raye this week, Sue and Noel now have four children age 2 or under.
