MUM-of-22 Sue Radford has revealed the “disaster” they had with Millie’s baby shower cake – and how dad Noel was there to save the day.
Britain’s biggest family celebrated 18-year-old Millie’s pregnancy over the weekend with a stunning pink and purple themed shower – but not everything went to plan.
The mum revealed that they were almost left without a cake after it suffered a battering on the way home from the bakery.
Sue, 45, from Morecambe, Lancs, shared the story on the family YouTube channel.
She explained: “We had an absolute disaster with the cake yesterday.”
Noel had been taking their son Daniel, 21, to his fitness test for the Raf and had picked up the purple and cream layer cake from Christine Quigly in Preston on his way home.
Sue continued: “While he was driving home he literally got ten minutes from home then you go down the bypass and there’s a big roundabout and if there’s no traffic you just carry on.
“The car in front of Noel put its brakes on and so Noel had to put his brakes on, and he could hear the cake slide.
“Phoebe shouts “oh no the cake” and he pulls into a layby and the top of the cake was all smashed in.”
When they arrived home it was three-year-old Phoebe who let the cat out of the bag when it came to the cake.
Sue revealed that the cake “looked a mess” and daughter Chloe, 23, burst into tears upon seeing the ruined cake.
Dad Noel popped to Sainsbury’s to get a “load of cake stuff” in an effort to salvage the cake and was able to do so with the sweet treat looking as good as new on the big day.
Millie, 18, is just a matter of weeks away from delivering her first baby, whom she has chosen to name Ophelia.
Millie's daughter, who's due next month, will be her first baby. She is no longer with Ophelia's dad.
Part of Britain's biggest family, Millie's siblings 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, who still lives in her crowded family home, said in March: “It’s weird that my baby will have an aunt who is only five months older. But it means they’ll hopefully be really close."
