The Redford family became the center of attention in the British media when their 21st child, a little girl named Bonnie, was born about 18 months ago.
Newspapers, TV shows, and magazines rushed to report on this remarkable story.
Before Bonnie’s arrival, the family had already caused a similar media frenzy when their 20th child, a little boy named Archie, was born a year earlier.
Sue and Noel, the parents of this extraordinary sibling group, had actually known each other since childhood.
Their paths first crossed when Sue was just 7 years old, while Noel was 12 years old.
Soon, they discovered a deep connection and shared the common experience of growing up in foster care after being abandoned by their biological parents.
At the tender age of 13, Sue became pregnant with their first child.
Despite the challenges they faced due to their youth, Sue and Noel made the brave decision to keep their baby and refused to put it up for adoption.
Eventually, the young couple married when Sue turned 18, solidifying their bond.
Over their 26 years of marriage, Sue and Noel have welcomed a total of 21 children into their loving embrace.
Sue gave birth to her last child when she was 43 years old.
Though their family dynamic may seem unconventional, their unity and happiness have remained unwavering, and they cherish the strong bonds that connect them.
Noel openly admits that their original plan was to have only three children, but their overwhelming love for their growing family led them to embrace the joy of having more.
“We got used to having children, and we love them,” says Noel.
After the birth of their seventh child, Noel underwent a vasectomy to prevent future pregnancies.
However, a change of heart led him to reverse the decision and pave the way for later additions.
The Redford family currently resides in a spacious 10-room house they purchased for £240,000 in 2004. Despite the size of their tribe, they comfortably call it home.
In addition to their daily routines, the Redford family generously shares their experiences on their personal blog with the world.
The blog covers various topics ranging from family vacations and favorite foods to leisure activities and their approach to parenting.
Every day, the family proudly consumes 10 liters of milk and 3 liters of juice, along with three boxes of breakfast cereal.
