BRITAIN’S biggest family, the Radfords, just got even larger with the addition of some sweet pet rabbits.
Sue, 45, and Noel, 49, Radford, who have 22 kids, now have two extra mouths to feed, two bunnies called Oreo and Peter.
Speaking on their YouTube channel, Aimee, 13, and Katie, 17, who are going to be tasked with looking after the furry pets, documented the grand arrival.
Aimee said: “So today we are going to pick up our rabbits, that is an hour away.
“We tried to look at local ones, rehoming ones, but there were no ones that were suitable for children.”
Before picking up the bunnies they went to the shop to pick up rabbit food, hay, straw and sawdust for the bedding, after previously making a pretty hutch.
The “very excited” girls then showed the little bunnies being brought back in the car.
The girls named the brown one, belonging to Katie, as Peter, with Aimee’s black and white rabbit being called Oreo.
Aimee stroked them in their box, saying: “They are very cute. They are much smaller than we expected.”
When the rabbits were brought back to the Radford’s 10-bed former care home, the waiting kids were extremely delighted, and took it in turns to stroke them.
Out in the family’s garden, the girls filmed the family feeding Oreo and Peter vegetables and holding them.
Sue, who welcomed her 22nd child, Heidie, in lockdown in April, said: “We got them young so they will get friendly, which they are friendly aren’t they?
“They will be good with all the kids.”
The family, who also have dogs Lola, Ivy and Bluebell, all stopped to watch as Aimee and Katie lined the two rabbits up for a mini race in the garden.
Aimee said: “We are going to see which rabbit is faster, Peter or Oreo.”
Oreo was the clearly winner of the race, with Peter having other ideas and running in the opposite direction.
The Radfords are Britain's biggest family, with Noel and Sue parents to Chris, 30, Sophie, 26, Chloe, 24, Jack, 22, Daniel, 20, Luke, 19, Millie, 18, Katie, 17, James, 16, Ellie, 14, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, eight, Casper, seven, Hallie, four, Phoebe, three, Archie, two, Bonnie, one and Heidie, who was born in April.
The family all live in a single house in Morecambe, Lancs, with the exception of the Radfords' eldest children.
The Radfords are already expecting another bundle of joy as 18-year-old Millie is expecting her first child – a girl called Ophelia, in September.
Sadly, the couple's 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.
They also have three grandchildren – who are Sophie's kids – Daisy, six, Ayprill, four, and Leo, two.
The parents famously don’t claim benefits and rely on Noel’s bakery business to make ends meet.
