Mum of Britain’s biggest family Sue Radford says her 22nd baby Heidie has been smiling since she was four weeks old

Britain’s biggest family welcomed their newest addition last month after mum Sue Radford gave birth for the 22nd time.

But already it seems that baby Heidie, now five weeks old, has already caught up to her siblings with Sue, 45, revealing that she’s been smiling since she was just four weeks old – earlier than any of her 22 kids.

The mum, from Morecambe, Lancashire, posted a sweet snap of Heidi laying alongside her sister Bonnie, one, showcasing a big cheeky smile.

On the Instagram snap, mum-of-22 wrote: “Oh my heart look at little Bon Bon kissing Heidie’s hand,” with many commenting on the younger’s sweet smile.

A fan of the family commented on the snap saying:” Beautiful Sue… And Heidie is such a smiley baby.. Did Bonnie smile this young.. Adorable beautiful baby’s .”

To which Sue replied: “thank you and no she didn’t Heidie has been smiling since just before she was 4 weeks which is the earliest any of ours have smiled.”

In a recent clip on the family YouTube channel, Sue said she is “100 per cent done” when it comes to having kids.

Speaking in the Q&A style video Sue says: “Every other question asked is, will you be having another baby and the answer to that is no!

“Definitely no more – we are 100 per cent done. Done, done, done.”
