Britain's 'biggest family' welcomes new addition as daughter, 18, gives birth

Britain’s ‘biggest family’ has welcomed a new addition.

Millie Radford, one of 21 siblings, announced the birth of a baby girl on Instagram, writing: ‘The biggest chapter of our lives has begun’.

She posted a picture of her baby’s feet in a little onesie, lying on a peach-pink blanket.

Named Ophelia, Mille’s baby girl has been welcomed into ‘Britain’s biggest brood’ the Radfords.

The excited grandma-to-be Sue Radford replied to posts by her daughter, saying: ‘Counting down the weeks till we get to hold you, Ophelia, we love you so much already.’

The famous Radford family currently live in a former care home, where there’s enough space for their growing number of children.


Millie, 18, has previously spoken out about being an expert with babies, having changed and looked after her younger siblings as her parents added to the family.

Her parents, Sue and dad Noel, have 21 children.

Millie, was reduced to tears when Sue treated her daughter and niece to a haul of baby items, including a brand new pram.

But, due to Covid measures, Millie’s pregnancy was not at all what she expected or wanted to be.

In a picture of her baby bump at 21 weeks, she admitted: ‘I’m gutted I haven’t had the chance to enjoy this pregnancy like I wanted to because of lockdown.’

‘No baby shopping, no listening to baby’s heartbeat, no sharing this experience with my friends or family.’

She learned that she was pregnant in early January.


She has previously said that the baby’s father is around her age, but they’re no longer together.

But Millie was not the only person in the family that welcomed a new baby, as her parents Sue, 45, and Noel, 49, also welcomed a baby in April, naming her Heidie.

Baby Heidie joins her siblings Chris, 30, Sophie, 26, Chloe, 24, Jack, 22, Daniel, 20, Luke, 19, Katie, 17, James, 16, Ellie, 14, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, eight, Casper, seven, Hallie, four, Phoebe, three, Archie, two, Bonnie, one and Millie.

Sue swore Heidie would be the couple’s last child, however, she has said that publically before.
