Britain's biggest family is just getting a little larger as it prepares to welcome their 17th baby home. Supermom Sue Radford, a baker's wife, is expecting again - just 11 months after giving birth - and she and her husband Noel will welcome the latest addition in April next year.

Sue, 38, and Noel, 41, from Morecambe, Lancashire, have added to their brood once every 17 months on average for 23 years, the 'Daily Express' reported.

The couple is "absolutely thrilled" that Sue is expecting again.

The family became famous when they were featured in a 2011 documentary '15 Kids And Counting'.  Their total count rose to 16 in October last year when Sue gave birth to son Casper, the report said.

"We are so excited to announce Radford baby number 17 will be joining this family," Sue wrote on her Facebook page. The Radford family puts up in a nine-bedroom home and use a minibus to travel around. Sue and Noel work in their own bakery.
