Almost a year and a half ago, the girl Bonnie was born in the Radfor family. The birth of this girl caused a violent reaction in the British media: TV programs, newspapers and magazines were speaking about that event.
Why? Because Bonnie is the 21st child in the family! And a year ago, the same reaction was to the birth of the 20th child, the boy Archie. The parents of a large family have known each other since childhood. They met when Sue was 7 years old, Noel was 12!
They had a lot in common, including growing up in foster homes after their parents abandoned them shortly after birth. Sue fell pregnant with her first kid at the age of 13, and she gave birth at the age of 14.
Despite the fact that the couple was still young, they did not place the child in an orphanage. Sue’s 18th birthday was the day they married. Sue gave birth to her last child at the age of 43, after 26 years of marriage and 21 children.
“At first we thought we’d stop at three, but we like having kids around so much that we can’t stop. We are very used to children and love them,” Noel admits. When the seventh child was born, the father of the family went for such a procedure as a vasectomy, but soon changed his mind and performed the reverse operation.
The whole huge family lives in a 10-room house, they bought it in 2004 for 240 thousand pounds. The family also keep a blog where they talk about their live, about family holidays, nutrition, recreation and upbringing.
Every day the family drinks about 10 liters of milk, three liters of juice, and for one breakfast eats three boxes of cereal, and for a day they have about 18 kilograms of laundry!
The family very rarely goes to the movies, cafes, as one such trip will cost them a big sum of money. But they really like family picnics, walks in the park or playing board games at home. They are insanely happy that they have each other because family is the greatest wealth in the world.
