Radford family welcomes baby number 21 – and this time it's & # 39; their last & # 39;

Britain's biggest family has welcomed baby number 21 in their huge bread – and promised that this is really their last.

Sue and Noel Radford are said to be beaten with the newborn daughter Bonnie Raye, who was born on Tuesday with a weight of 8lb 4oz after a quick 12-minute delivery.

The 20 other children of the couple are equally delighted and ready to hold her while she was welcomed on Wednesday in the ten-bed family home in Morecambe, Lancashire.

Sue, 43, told The Sun: "We both decided we do not want to, Bonnie has completed our family."

And Noel, 47, added: "Some people decide to quit after two or three children, and we got it after 21."

Sue has also insisted that she will not miss that she is pregnant – and the maternity clothes go into the trash.

She added: "All midwives in the hospital asked us if they would see us again next year and we both said," absolutely not ".

"We just continue to enjoy the children and enjoy our grandchildren."

The couple revealed that in May they expected baby number 21 by placing a video message on YouTube and an echo of the unborn girl on Instgram.

When the couple welcomed their 8lb 6oz son Archie in September last year, they swore that the little boy would be their last and they would like to end up with a "nice even number".

But months later the family announced that it would be even bigger with a daughter who is almost 30 years younger than her oldest brother or sister.

The parents, whose family were part of the reality program & # 39; 20 Kids And Counting & # 39 ;, say they do not claim additional state benefits in addition to the regular child benefit.

Sue and Noel have had children for almost three decades.

They are already Chris's parents, 29, Sophie, 24, Chloe, 23, Jack, 21, Daniel, 19, Luke, 18, Millie, 17, Katie, 15, James, 14, Ellie, 13, Aimee, 12, Josh 11, Max, nine, Tillie, eight, Oscar, seven, Casper, six, Hallie, three, Phoebe, two, and Archie, one.

Their son Alfie was stillborn in 2014. Bonnie had the same expiry date as Alfie.

After Archie was born, the couple said it was "weird", knowing that he would be their last.

When the whole family appeared on This Morning in January, Sue said: "Archie is definitely the last Radford baby."

But the eldest daughter Sophie, who has three children herself, shook her head and claimed that she & # 39; m her mother can not see stopping & # 39;

Daughter Aimee, 11, admitted that she felt "stressed out" and took care of her younger brothers and sisters.

Presenter Eamonn Holmes called Father Noel a "horny goat", as the stars of the Channel 4 documentary & # 39; 20 Kids and Counting & # 39; claimed they would no longer have children.

The first child of childhood, Chris, was born when Sue was just 14.
