It’s a case of like mother, like daughter for Britain’s biggest family from Morecambe.

Our picture shows mum Sue Radford and daughter Sophie showing off their matching baby bumps.

While Sue is expecting her 17th baby, Sophie is looking forward to the arrival of her second child.

The Radford family suffered heartbreak last year after Sue lost what would have been her 17th baby.

The mum and dad-to-be Noel said they were “devastated beyond words” when a 12-week scan revealed the infant had died, just days after they announced they were expecting again.

But after the news of her latest pregnancy, Sue said: “Baby number 17 is due in November and we couldn’t be happier.”

The Radfords found fame after being featured in a Channel Four documentary.
