Sue and Noel Radford said they were going to stop at 21 kids. But now they’re having just one more.
The Radfords already have the biggest family in the UK and have featured in a series of TV shows, starting with 15 Kids And Counting in 2012.
Sue, who’s 44, announced her pregnancy in a video posted to YouTube in October. She couldn’t contain her excitement as she prepared to go for an ultrasound.
“We’re going to go and have a little peek at the new little Radford!”
Sue says she feels “so tiny” during her 22nd pregnancy, compared to her others. She’s currently 27 weeks pregnant.

Sue and Noel, who’s 48, are hoping their newest baby, due in April, will be a boy, giving them an even number of boys and girls.
“I am feeling a…boy,” Sue says in the video.
The couple had their first child, Chris, back in 1989, when Sue was 14. Five years later, they had Sophie, quickly followed by Chloe, Jack, Daniel, Luke, Millie, Katie, James, Ellie, Aimee, Josh, Max, Tillie, Oscar, Casper, Alfie, Hallie, Phoebe, Archie and Bonnie.
Alfie was stillborn at 23 weeks.
Noel had a vasectomy after Sue got pregnant with James, but then had it reversed.
