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

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, 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."

A few weeks ago the family celebrated Millie's pregnancy with a baby shower.

Mum-of-22 Sue shared a snap of Millie as she posed in front of her baby shower decorations on Instagram.

The teen lived out the majority of her pregnancy in lockdown, and admitted it was not how she had imagined.

She previously said: “I’m gutted I haven’t had the chance to enjoy this pregnancy like I wanted to because of lockdown.

"No baby shopping, no listening to baby's heartbeat, no sharing this experience with my friends or family."

Millie said she was initially worried about announcing the pregnancy to her family, with her mum around 32 weeks pregnant herself at the time.

Millie previously said: “My parents have always seen me as the ‘good girl’. They are not strict but I knew that telling them would make it real.

“Thankfully, they weren’t disappointed. They were excited.”

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

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