The Radfords welcome baby number 21, but & # 39; supermum & # 39; Sue, 43, says that this & # 39; sure will be her last & # 39;
The largest family in Britain has grown even bigger after mother Sue Radford gave birth to her 21st baby.
The newest arrival, named Bonnie Raye, was born Tuesday at 6.43 pm in the Royal Lancaster Infirmary where obstetricians had previously delivered 14 of the family's children.
Mrs. Radford, 43, endured a 12-minute labor before giving birth to baby girl Bonnie, who weighed at 8lb 4oz.
She was brought home on Wednesday in Morecambe, Lancashire to the delight of her family who "fought over the first hug."

Mrs. Radford last gave birth in September 2017 and she promised at the time that this would be her last.
However, she announced in a YouTube video of May that she was pregnant again.
When she spoke to the sun about the last baby arrival, Mrs. Radford said, "They all fought for the first hug. It is such a beautiful moment when you bring a newborn home and the others are all ready to hold her.
& # 39; We both decided that we do not want anymore. Bonnie has completed our family. & # 39;
Her husband Noel, 47, said: "I do not think anyone thinks they will have 21 children. We thought we would have three.
& # 39; Some people decide to quit after two or three children. We made it after 21. & # 39;
Mrs. Radford said about the delivery that she thought she needed more help-but there was no time.
Mrs. Radford last gave birth in September 2017 and she promised that it would be her last – before she would reveal her last pregnancy.
She said that her other children were very happy with the arrival of Bonnie after they returned to the converted ten-bedroom care home.
Mrs. Radford now has a total of 811 weeks pregnant and insists that she is now ready to just enjoy her children and grandchildren.
She said that & # 39; it must end at a certain moment & # 39; and has also revealed that they have told the midwives not to expect them next year.
She also admitted that she would not miss that she was pregnant and would now pack her maternity clothes.
The couple supports themselves with their bakery and only claims child benefit.

Their eldest son Christopher is now 30 and his four-day-old sister Bonnie is the aunt of his 16-month-old daughter Maisie.
Bonnie now has two other cousins, as well as a cousin born from Sue and the eldest daughter of Noel, Sophie.
Mr. Radford added that the house of the family is laughing and there is never a dull moment. He also said that he was convinced that this would be their last child.
Their children are not convinced, however.
The eldest daughter Sophie is convinced that her parents will not stop for an odd number, while Chloe says that a new baby could certainly still happen.

The couple from Morecambe, Lancashire, met for the first time when Sue was only seven years old.
They had their first child, Chris, 28 years ago, when Sue was only 14 years old. The couple decided to keep the baby because they were both given up for adoption at birth.

The couple then moved together to their first home and married. Shortly thereafter, they welcomed their second child, Sophie, when Sue was 17.
Mrs. Radford lost a boy, Alfie in 2014, who was stillborn, but he is still part of the family.
Both parents believe that Alfie has a special bond with their new child Bonnie.
A lot of mouth to feed! The budget of the Radford family
The couple receive £ 170 a week in child benefit and survive Noel's salary at just under £ 50,000.
They spend around £ 300 a week on grocery shopping and plan their batch cook carefully to ensure that everyone is fed.
The shopping list contains:
- 18 pints of milk
- Three liters of juice
- Three boxes of breakfast cereals are consumed every day
They have a budget of £ 100 for their children's presents on birthdays, while they book between £ 100 and £ 250 at Christmas.
In July 2016 they welcomed baby number 19, Phoebe, and benefactors sent the few messages to congratulate them.
They became grandparents when their daughter Sophie gave birth and she had three children.
The family now lives in a large £ 240,000 Victorian home, a former health center that they bought 11 years ago, and they are proud to have no credit cards or financing agreements. They also enjoy a holiday abroad every year.
They spend £ 300 a week on groceries, with 18 liters of milk, three liters of juice and three boxes of breakfast cereals every day.
When it comes to celebrating their children's birthdays they have a budget of £ 100 for gifts, while at Christmas they reserve between £ 100 and £ 250.
Her husband had a vasectomy during his wife's ninth pregnancy, but reversed it when they decided to have more children.
In 2013 the couple shone in the Channel 4 show, 16 Kids and Counting and were filmed in their ten-bedroom house.
The following year, Mrs. Radford – who did not receive handouts from the state, except child benefit, lost a boy named Alfie when she was 23 weeks pregnant.
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE RADFORDS: HOW THE BIGGEST FAMILY OF BRITAIN CARES OUT A TYPICAL DAY
After an early start in the bakery, mr. Radford went home every day at 7.45 am to find out the children and take them to kindergarten at school.
All uniforms are washed and laid out the night before, while breakfast is stacked in two shifts.
Six of the children are ten minutes from the same primary school and five are in high school. Noel drives them in a minibus which, because it carries more than nine passengers, has the right to use bus lanes.
Meanwhile, the three youngest, Oscar, Caspar and Hallie, stay at Sue's home, although Oscar's afternoon goes to nursery school.
The family does nine washes per day, receives 30 bottles of washing liquid each month and uses four toilet rolls per day.
Incredibly, they manage to feed the family for £ 300 a week, giving them all pasta or a large stew using their local butcher and greengrocer.
The bath time at home starts at around 6 p.m. and while the younger ones will take a bath around 7 p.m., the elderly stay up until 9 p.m.
Mr. and Mrs. Radford say they are in bed at 22:00.
