Sue Radford gives birth to baby number TWENTY and said it's her last

Did anyone see Sue Radford has had 20th baby! Quite amazing really.

They say is definitely the last. But note Noel won't have a vasectomy.

Congrats to them
I struggle to juggle 4!

They always say it's the last baby. He should absolutely have a vasectomy.

stockportmother Thu 21-Sep-17 22:00:43

Oh really does he?

Have to say has anyone else noticed that the older son chris' child is never included in the list of their grandchildren. Did he split up with the mother? Sophie's 3 children are always listed.

TBH find jt odd that they continued having babies after sophie started having their grandchildren.

They are a bizarre couple...

bellaboo101 Thu 21-Sep-17 22:09:16

They are going to have a hell of a lot of grandchildren if all 20 of their children end up having kids, let alone multiple kids each...

They'll be more, they said that it was the last one a few children ago and every child after that.

They have major psychological issues.

I find it all a bit sinister

Congrats to them flowers

So wrong is so many ways. The planet is overpopulated so a good job not every couple are as selfish as these two.

There is no way each child gets attention. It's obvious the older ones have to help with the younger ones. Do the younger ones get bedtime stories, play with their parents etc?

Madness, utter madness

There is no way every child can possibly get enough attention from either of them. Sorry but I really do think they are crazy, they're just addicted to the baby / pregnancy stage.

There is a psychological issue there driving the need, but I think it long got overtaken by a financial issue.

stockportmother Fri 22-Sep-17 10:08:28

What is the psychological issue though? Some form of attachment trauma from being adopted being re enacted? I have seen this written before about them but what exactly is it?

Feckinlego Fri 22-Sep-17 10:13:42

I find it difficult enough to give my two individual attention! Don't know how they do it.

Feel sorry for the older kids who will have lost a lot of their childhood by having to care for the many younger siblings.

I do like the fact that they finance their own children but I do agree that there are psychological issues with those two. And few people realise that Noel was 17 when he got a 13 year old pregnant. Lucky that he ended up married to her instead of in prison and on a register.

opheliacat Fri 22-Sep-17 10:20:26

Not sure about financing own children. The cynic in me thought this one is the last because of changes to tax credits ...

MaryPoppinsPenguins Fri 22-Sep-17 10:38:49

It's hard enough to take car of two children and juggle their homework, clubs, play dates, parties and just get some quality family time with them... you can't possibly do it with that many children. They have all suffered for their parents choices. It's so sad really...

WeatherDependent Fri 22-Sep-17 10:59:25

I struggle to give enough quality time to my two, there's no way I could do that with 20 or even 10.

To clothe, feed, spend time with, chat to, chill out with, bake with, walk with, snuggle up in bed on a Sunday morning with is nigh on impossible and their kids and they've missed out. You don't miss what you've never had which is really sad.

My personal believe is that it's the height of selfishness but what do I know. Plus I can't reconcile the fact she was 14 and he was 18 when they had their first.

stockportmother Fri 22-Sep-17 11:44:58

I've read interviews where sue admits to not complying with school
Homework or reading (she doesn't believe in it) and also that none of the children do clubs or have play stars.

The kids have never had 'hire a hall and invite your classmates' sort of party. I've followed her on social media since 2008 and she posts a lot, she has never held a proper party for any of her children.

So I guess with no homework reading play dates clubs or parties that cuts a big part of 'parenting work' out doesn't it really

Metalhead Fri 22-Sep-17 11:50:47

She "doesn't believe" in reading?!? That's possibly the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard! shock
