The parents of Britain's biggest family have shared the excitable moment when they revealed the gender of baby number 19.
The Radfords - Sue (40) and Noel (45) - revealed earlier this year they were expecting their 19th child - without claiming any benefits from the government. They support themselves with their bakery business, run by Mr Radford.
The couple are currently parents to Chris, 25, Sophie, 21, Chloe, 19, Jack, 17, Daniel, 15, Luke, 14, Millie, 13, Katie, 12, James, 11, Ellie, nine, Aimee, eight, Josh, seven, Max, six, Tilly, four, Oscar, three, Casper, two and Hallie, just eight months old.
The family, who rose to fame on Channel 4 documentary series 16 Kids And Counting, live in a ten-bedroom converted care home and believe that they spend around £30,000 a year of their own money bringing up their children.
Mr and Mrs Radford were childhood sweethearts and she fell pregnant with her first child, eldest son Chris, 27, when she was just 14. The couple were determined to keep the baby as they had both been adopted at birth.
The couple say they originally planned on having three children, but they loved the experience so much that they simply kept going.
