SUE and Noel Radford have 22 kids together – aged from one to 32 – making them parents to Britain’s biggest family.
Famously they don’t claim benefits for their bumper brood and fund themselves with their family pie shop – but how on EARTH do they manage their extraordinary lifestyle?
Perhaps the secret to their parenting style lies in their star signs.
Noel, 50, is a business-minded Capricorn while Sue, 46, is an ambitious Aries, which could have an effect on how they’ve raised their kids.
Tarotscope reader Kerry King explained to Fabulous how this cosmic combo helps to run this enormous family with ease.
Sue is competitive and driven
Kerry said that Morecambe-based Sue is ruled by Mars, the planet of ambition, competition and drive.
The Tarotscope reader explained: “Aries people, with this Mars influence, know what they want and go for it with limitless drive, passion and energy.
“Aries people can move mountains, when they have a goal, and Sue’s goal IS family.
“She is lucky to be supported by Noel with his Saturn planetary influence.
“Aries may have the big ideas, but Saturn knows how to put plans into place to make them a reality.”
Noel is the hardest worker in the room
Kerry said that Noel is influenced by Saturn, which makes him “the hardest worker in the room, the detail-freak, the dutiful and conscientious steady pair of hands.”
She added: “Together, Sue brings the big ideas, optimism and passion, and Noel brings the planning, determination and diligence to see them through.
“A winning planetary combo, as long as both are aligned on the same goal.”
Children have a strict routine
Kerry said that “Noel’s Saturn ruler is a strict disciplinarian” and this means the children do not mess around.
She explained: “They know the boundaries, have clear schedules, understand what’s expected of them, and accept there are consequences if they disobey.
“Sue’s Mars ruler may make her seem like the more ~fun~ one but woe betide any tiny tot who pushes her past her limits of patience.
“She can display a fiery temper and a short fuse when the wrong buttons are pushed. Her children will know that she is no pushover.”
Great multi-tasking couple
The tarot expert said Noel’s Capricorn sign belongs to the Earth element, and Sue’s Aries sign belongs to the Fire element.
This makes for great multi-tasking between them.
She said: “The Earth element is actually associated with the feminine, and Fire with masculine, so Noel and Sue are not fussy or rigid about what duties they perform to keep the household running.
“They see what needs doing, and do it.
Radford kids’ ages
Sue and Noel are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 27, Chloe, 25, Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, Luke, 20, Millie, 19, Katie, 18, James, 17, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 15, Josh, 13, Max, 12, Tillie, 11, Oscar, nine, Casper, eight, Hallie, six, Phoebe, four, Archie, three, Bonnie, two, and Heidie, one.
Sadly the couple's 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.
“They see what needs doing, and do it.
“Earth signs tend to be more practical, organised and methodical about their to-do list, so perhaps Noel is better placed on scheduled and pre-planned ~set pieces~ (like the school run) and long-term budgeting, scheduling and planning.
“Fire signs are good under pressure, rising to any challenge, and able to blast through issues with sheer willpower, so Sue might be better placed to handle sudden flare-ups and family crisis’s as a first port of call.
“Fire signs are also warm and playful, and Aries, as the first sign of the zodiac, is like the ~baby~ of the bunch, with bundles of childlike wonder and energy for the world around them. Sue will have an affinity with children.”
They like starting something new
Kerry said that the star signs show that the busy parents “like to start something new”, which could be a driving factor in the sheer size of their family.
She explained: “Both are Cardinal signs, which means they are born at the start of a season (Sue in spring, and Noel in winter).
“Cardinal signs are the initiators of the zodiac, they love starting new enterprises, they are innovative and brave and always on the look-out for the ~next thing~.
“Sue and Noel clearly love introducing new members to their family, that ~shine~ has never dulled for either of them.”
Sue and Noel are natural leaders
Kerry said that Aries and Capricorn are both natural-born leaders, but said the Astro combo can be “quite a conflicted or incompatible one as a result of that tension.”
She explained: “However, here, Noel and Sue have clearly aligned on the same vision for their life and family, and pulled in the same direction.
“As neither is a shrinking wallflower, dominated by the other, they can carry an equal load and responsibility, and it’s perhaps this equitable leadership that has enabled them to pull so heavy a burden in terms of practical and financial demands.
“Simply put: they both love their life and the fact the other helps them live it like this.”
