Having a child can be an incredible experience. Bringing another life into this world and watching them grow and learn is truly mind bending and beautiful.

Britain’s biggest family reveal they are expecting baby number 22 - video

But this is not something to tell to Sue and Noel Radford, who has given birth to 21 kids, and despite them saying last year that they weren't going to have anymore, Sue has revealed on the family YouTube channel that they're expecting baby number 22.

Holding up an ultrasound image, the 44-year-old told her followers: ‘So now you know guys, we’re having a baby. We’re just coming up to 15 weeks pregnant and we’ll be able to find out the gender of the baby soon.’

The baby is due in April and Sue said that she wants a boy. She said: ‘I wonder if it will be 11 of each – I am feeling a bit boy.’

The couple live in a 10-bedroom house and rely on Noel’s income as a baker and receive just £170 a week in child benefits.

They previously tried to put an end to their ever-growing brood when Neil had a vasectomy after baby number nine.

But he had that reversed so they could have more children and now they have Chris, 30, Sophie, 25, Chloe, 23, Jack, 22, Daniel, 20, Luke, 18, Millie, 17, Katie, 16, James, 15, Ellie, 14, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, seven, Casper, six, Hallie, three, Phoebe, two, Archie, one, and Bonnie Raye who was born last November.

Only the two eldest children do not live at home and Sophie has three kids of her own.

It costs around £350 a week to feed all their children and it takes three hours a day to tidy up the house.

Sue also says that the pile of washing is ‘non-stop’ with nine loads of clothes going through the machines every day.

Last year, Sue told Femail: ‘We do like to go to the cinema, especially in the holidays when the kids are a bit bored, it’s raining and there’s not much else for them to do. But it can be up to £10 per person so it can work out really expensive!’

She added: ‘Believe it or not, we don’t tend to get group discounts because we find family tickets are usually for two adults and two children – and obviously there’s a lot of us.

‘We often look for the different discount codes you can find on the internet and go with whatever offers they’ve got on.’
