MUM-of-22 Sue Radford has shared a touching post as she became a grandma again after daughter Millie gave birth. 

Britain’s biggest family the Radford's got even bigger as 19-year-old Millie welcomed a baby girl, Ophelia. 

The teen announced the birth yesterday, and Sue shared a sweet snap online of her new granddaughter as she gushed over her. 

She wrote: “Welcome to the family beautiful Ophelia.

“I can’t even put into words how incredibly proud I am of @millieeradfordd you did AMAZING bringing this beautiful blessing into the world. 

“We love you both so much.” 

She wasn't the only family member who congratulated Millie, as her siblings also praised her.

Sister Chloe wrote: "So happy and so bloody proud of you mil."

While Sophie posted: "I love you so so much my beautiful niece. So proud of you Millie."

She also shared a black and white snap of her new niece, writing: "You are the most beautiful little blessing."

And Luke commented: "You’ve never been more ready mil."

Ophelia Radford will become the sixth grandchild of Sue, 45, and Noel Radford, 49.

Millie posted a photo of her daughter’s tiny feet to Instagram as she announced her arrival to the world, revealing she was born at 7.05pm. 

The new mum said: “The biggest chapter of our lives has begun.” 

Millie's siblings and now Ophelia’s aunt and uncles are Chris, 31, Sophie, 25, Chloe, 24, Jack, 22, Daniel, 20, Luke, 19, Katie, 17, James, 16, Ellie, 15, Aimee, 14, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, eight, Casper, seven, Hallie, four, Phoebe, three, Archie, two, and Bonnie, one, and Heidie – who was born in April.

Millie patiently waited for the arrival of her baby girl, after passing her due date on September 6. 

She posted at the time: “HAPPY DUE DATE!! To my girl.

“As of today I am 40 weeks pregnant, and Ophelia still isn’t even engaged yet and I’ve not had a single labour sign.

“We are all patiently waiting for her arrival.”

The Radford family shared a clip to YouTube documenting Millie’s labour, as the teen woke her parents up at 12:45am with contractions.

But it was a false alarm, as Millie was sent back home from the hospital at 3.45am after being told she was only 2cm dilated. 

Later on Sue reveals Millie is having some "major, major contractions" as mum and daughter headed to the hospital to welcome Ophelia.

The adorable tot is Millie’s first baby. She is no longer with Ophelia's dad.

The Radfords are Britain's biggest family, with Noel and Sue parents to 22 children, while sadly, the couple's 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.

They also have three grandchildren – who are Sophie's kids – Daisy, six, Ayprill, four, and Leo, two.

The parents famously don’t claim benefits and rely on Noel’s bakery business to make ends meet.

And this is everything you need to know about Millie's labour with baby Ophelia.

In other Radford news, Sue shared her kids' first day back of school including tears and piles of uniform everywhere.

Plus "exhausted" Sue shared a snap of her breastfeeding Heidie.
