Britain’s biggest family have announced their 22nd child will be a girl.
Sue Radford, 44, and her husband Noel, 48, broke the news that they were expecting last month in a clip posted to YouTube showing her latest ultrasound.
Their latest announcement will bring the family’s total up to 11 girls and 11 boys.

Mrs Radford told The Sun: ‘Most people have one of each sex and stop there. It is perfect to have an exact balance of boys to girls so we have 11 to 11.’
She added: ‘Now we will all have to agree on a name for her – it will be as difficult as Brexit with all the kids having their own opinions on what names they like.’
The couple, who used pink confetti for their gender reveal, said they got rid of all of all their newborn essentials after having their last baby.

It comes after the couple (pictured with the rest of the family) from Morecambe, Lancashire, said that after their last child in 2018 there would be no more
The family, who only claim £170 in child benefits a week, have to rely on Mr Radford’s bakery business to make ends meet and pay for their ten-bedroom house.
They bought it in 2004 for £240,000.
Mrs Radford gave birth to first child, son Chris, in May 1989 when she was 14 years old.
Mr Radford had a vasectomy when the couple were expecting their ninth baby, but got it reversed so they could have more children.

Sadly Alfie, the couple’s 17th child, was still born on July 6th 2014.
The family have to fork out £350 a week on food and spend three hours tidying up every night to keep their house in check.
Mr and Mrs Radford have to pay a minimum of £150 if they want to take the family out for dinner and going on holiday means bringing at least seven suitcases.
Washing duties are ‘non-stop’, with 18kg of clothes being washed every day of the week.
