Sue Radford, known for having “Britain’s largest family,” recently shared an emotional tribute to her stillborn son, Alfie, marking the 10-year anniversary of his passing. The 49-year-old mother posted on her Instagram account, expressing her sorrow and sharing images of Alfie’s tiny hand and foot prints, along with flowers at his graveside. She reminisced about the painful memory of being told that her baby boy had no heartbeat, leading to his silent birth at 7:54 am the next morning.

Reflecting on the loss, Sue mentioned how this time of year never gets any easier, emphasizing her disbelief that a decade has passed since Alfie was born. Despite the heartbreaking experience, Sue and her husband, Noel Radford, continue to honor their late son every year with touching posts and tributes.

The Radford family’s journey began 35 years ago when Sue and Noel met as teenagers in Kendal, Lake District. They got married in 1992, with their first child, Chris, already born when Sue was only 17 years old. Over the years, they welcomed a total of 22 children, becoming parents to Sophie, Chloe, Jack, Daniel, Luke, Millie, Katie, James, Ellie, Aimee, Josh, Max, Tillie, Oscar, Casper, Hallie, Phoebe, Archie, Bonnie, and Heidie.

Adding to their growing family, Katie, their eighth daughter, shared the exciting news of her pregnancy with her boyfriend, Connor Carter. The couple’s announcement on Instagram, featuring a gender reveal with a cannon, indicated that a baby boy is on the way. In a previous episode, Connor moved in with the Radfords, demonstrating his commitment to helping out with household chores and responsibilities.

Despite the challenges and heartache that Sue and Noel have faced, they continue to embrace each new chapter of their family’s story with love, resilience, and gratitude for the precious memories they have created together. Alfie’s legacy lives on through their unwavering strength and the enduring bond that unites them as a family.
