Pregnant mum-of-21 Sue Radford throws epic LOL Surprise sleepover for daughter
A girl with 20 siblings was thrown the ultimate LOL Surprise sleepover after she had an operation on her leg.
Tillie Radford was shocked to discover the living room in her family home had been converted into the perfect slumber-party environment.
Five teepees were erected, with doll themed bedding, a lantern and a bunting under each one.
The party was the work of mum Sue, 44, who is currently pregnant with her 22nd child.
Earlier this year Tillie, nine, had a frame fitted to strengthen her leg after it stopped growing due to an operation when she was just 18 months old.
The slumber-party was thrown in a bid to cheer Tillie up.
Speaking in a video posted on the family Youtube channel, Sue said: "Today is an exciting day for Tillie, no one knows but us grown-ups.
“She had a friend over for tea this week and she’s been desperate for a sleepover for a few months now, but I put it off because she was waking up quite a few times in the night due to pain in her leg.
“What she doesn’t know is that she’s got another little friend sleeping over and we’ve got a slumber party for her.
“I honestly can’t wait to see her little face bless her. I just know she’s going to absolutely love it.”
In order to set up the comfy snooze zone, Tillie was taken out of the house to pick up a friend.
While she was out other members of the family, helped by party business Once Upon a Sleepover, gave the lounge a makeover.
"I love it," Tillie exclaimed when she came into the room.
When asked by her dad Noel, 48, what she thought about it, Tillie responded "Awesome."
The girls hunkered down in their teepeess for an evening of film watching, popcorn and sweets.
“They’ve had a Domino's pizza and Tillie was also desperate to get some cookies too," Sue added.
“I’m just going to get sorted and head off to bed. Not that I’m going to get much sleep tonight as I’ll probably be down checking on them.”
Sue is close to welcoming her 22nd child into the world.
The mum, from Morecambe in Lancashire, has now entered the 30th week of her pregnancy and visited a consultant to check on the baby’s welfare.
Sue said: "She was doing brilliantly. Her head was measuring at 28 weeks, her leg was measuring at 30 weeks and so was her belly so she’s doing really well.
“Her estimated weight is 3lbs 3oz, which is good because I thought she was smaller.
"She’s still got time to have a growth spurt and she’s growing really well which is brilliant.”
With 134,000 YouTube subscribers and a TV show, Brits seem fascinated by the massive family who famously claim no benefits, other than Child Benefit, to raise their family.
Instead they rely on father Noel, who was 18 when the couple’s first child was born, and his bakery.
Their numerous brood includes: Chris, 30, Sophie, 25, Chloe, 23, Jack, 22, Daniel, 20, Luke, 18, Millie, 17, Katie, 16, James, 15, Ellie, 14, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, seven, Casper, six, Hallie, three, Phoebe, two, Archie 18 months, and Bonnie, one.
The couple’s 17th child was born on July 6 2014 but was sadly still born.
They have three grandchildren from their eldest daughter, 25-year-old Sophie including Daisy, six, Ayprill, four, and Leo, two and a granddaughter called Maisie from son Chris.
