BRITAIN’S biggest family got even bigger this week as Millie Radford – who is one of Sue and Noel Radford’s 22 kids – gave birth to her third child.
And the bumper family, from Lancashire, got to meet Millie’s newborn Elodie-Jade for some cuddles this weekend.

Sue shared awith her latest grandchild, and wrote: “Gorgeous little Elodie.”
Meanwhile, Millie, 22, also introduced her baby to some of her siblings.
Her sister Katie also uploaded a video with the newborn tot, and told fans: “Wide awake for her auntie and uncles.”
Sue and Noel are parents to Chris, 34, Sophie, 29, , 28, Jack, 26, Daniel, 24, Luke, 22, Millie, 22, Katie, 20, James, 19, Ellie, 18, Aimee, 17, Josh, 16, Max, 14, Tillie, 13, , 11, Casper, 10, Hallie, eight, Phoebe, seven, Archie, six, Bonnie, four, and Heidie, three.
Sadly the couple’s 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.
Millie announced to fans that Elodie had been born on Tuesday weighing 7lb 10z.
Sue and Millie’s partner Harley acted as birth partners for Millie during the water birth.
Millie also revealed how her other two kids, Ophelia, three, and Chester, one, have reacted to their newborn sister.
Millie showed a sweet shot of Ophelia carefully cradling her sister, and said: “One very protective big sissie.”
Aww Millie she’s just so beautiful,” Sue wrote.
“I’m so proud of you you did amazing bringing her into the world.
“Thank you so much for asking me to be with you. Love you Xxx.”
Sue’s comment, and even the fact Millie asked her to be her birth partner, is even more notable considering the “feud” between mother and daughter earlier this year.
Since then, neither Millie nor Sue or any other member of the Radford family have referred to the “feud”.
And Sue being such a massive part of Elodie-Jade’s birth is the final sign that the apparent disagreement is well and truly behind them.
Sue also posted a snap of herself holding the newborn on her family’s Instagram page, writing over the top: “Welcome to the family Elodie-Jade.
“So proud of you millie you did amazing – she’s a such a beautiful addition to the family. Congratulations.”
And new dad Harley also took to his Instagram page to share his joy after Elodie-Jade’s birth.
“Couldn’t be anymore proud of you with how amazing you did delivering our beautiful girl into the world I love use so much my family is now complete!” he wrote alongside the same pictures Millie had shared of the new arrival.
“Also thank you so much sue for helping millie get through it, also i wouldn’t of got through it without you.”
“Aww Harley she’s just adorable,” Sue replied.
“I’m so happy for you all, what a beautiful addition to the family.”
In May, Millie announced that she was pregnant with her third child and that they were expecting a baby girl.
She shared a video of her kids playing on the beach, with partner Harley kicking a ball which emittedsmoke.
Millie captioned the video: “One more to love and adore baby No3 is [heart emoji].”
