‘My mum’s got 21 kids and now I’m pregnant at 18 after snubbing contraception’

A teenager whose mum has had 21 children – and is due to give birth to baby number 22 – has revealed she is now pregnant at just 18.

But Millie Radford insists she is excited to welcome her first child into the world despite her age.

The teenager, whose six-month relationship with the baby's father has now ended, told The Sun: “We didn’t use protection. I knew there was a risk of pregnancy but I didn’t think it’d be so easy.

"I didn’t worry about STIs, as I trusted him. I’d known him for years."

Millie is the seventh child of Britain’s largest family – The Radfords – with mum Sue, 44, and dad Noel, 49, preparing to welcome their own new addition to the brood. 

Sue had her first baby – Chris, now 30, when she was just 13.

Millie, who still lives in crowded family home in Morecambe, Lancashire, added: “It’s weird that my baby will have an aunt who is only five months older. But it means they’ll hopefully be really close.

"My cycle is regular, so I knew I was pregnant. But I was scared of finding out for sure — and what Mum would say.

“As ‘two-three weeks pregnant’ flashed up, I knew instantly I was keeping the baby. My fear immediately turned to excitement.”

The teen, who is 14-weeks pregnant, told Sue and dad Noel of her news last month.

Millie admitted her parents have always seen her as the ‘good girl’ .

However, they were far from disappointed and thrilled at the news.

Sue, who runs a bakery business with Noel, is mum to Chris, Sophie, 26, who has also moved out, Chloe, 24; Jack, 22, Daniel, 21, Luke, 19, Katie, 17, James, 16, Ellie, 14, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, eight, Casper, seven, Hallie, four, Phoebe, three, Archie, two, and Bonnie, one.

The couple’s 17th child, Alfie, was stillborn in 2014.

The teen says she has plenty of experience changing nappies and getting wriggling babies into tiny clothes.

Millie, who says the baby's dad has vowed to support their child, has plenty of experience looking after her siblings, some of whom have already had kids themselves.
