British mum of 16 kids keen to expand brood
A woman from Lancashire, who gave birth to her sixteenth baby a few weeks back, has told her hubby that she wants more children.
37-year-old Sue Radford - who looks after her kids in a former care home, said, "I just love being a mummy. We're so lucky," the Sun reported.
Radford first got pregnant aged 14. She and her hubby Noel, now 41, wanted to keep their son Chris, now 23, as both were given up for adoption at birth.
The couple married when Radford was 18 and Sophie, now 18, soon arrived. Then came Chloe, 17, Jack 15, Daniel, 13, and 11-year-old Luke.
Millie, 10, Katie, 9, James, 8, Ellie, 7, Aimee, 6, Josh, 4, Max, 3, and Tilly May, 2, soon followed.
Oscar was born last year in October before 8lb 8oz Casper took birth seven weeks back after a 16-minute labour.
"He's settled in like a dream. I get very emotional when I see the children together," Radford, who drives the kids around in a minibus, said.
"I know people stare. Some think they won't get the attention they need.
"They don't realise how dedicated we are. And maybe we'll be lucky enough to have more," she said.
The family spends 250-pound-a-week on food.
Every day they finish off three loaves of bread, two boxes of cereal and 18 pints of milk.
An average supper could consist of 16 pork chops, 15lb of spuds, three cabbages and 30 carrots.
