Since they aren't religious - I worry about Sue when she can't be pregnant anymore. I think she may have serious problems, mentally coping with the change of seasons. I hope that the final pregnancies go well for mom and babies.

I think that too. I have no idea why she’s been pregnant so many times; with Michelle there was the religious belief thing. I feel like both Sue and Noel have some unresolved issues with being adopted, as they’ve mentioned that before in relation to wanting a big family. Sue’s identity is so wrapped up in having a big family that when the baby train stops it’ll be a huge shock. Even though she’ll have lots of kids in the house for years, until she’s in her 60s, they’ll all be growing up and becoming more independent and won’t need her so much. Perhaps that’s a lot of the reason why - she loves that feeling of being needed, which she didn’t get from her birth parents (although we have no idea about the circumstances surrounding her adoption, she could well have been wanted but her birth parents may not have felt able to cope).

Pregnant at 18. That is so young. You’d think they were fundies.

Sue got pregnant with her first at 14 right? Teen parents often have children who become teen parents.

I think she was actually 13 when she got pregnant and just over 14 when she gave birth.

Tbh in a family that size I'd expect a couple of teen pregnancies. Just by law of averages and lack of oversight. Millie isn't married so it's not a religious thing. Just normal 'oops' (I presume. Could have been deliberate of course).

Didn’t one of her other children have a child as a teen as well?  I think that one is married now with at least one other kid, but I thought this was actually mentioned on one of their specials.

Yes I think that was their oldest daughter Chloe. She was 19 when she had her first. Now married with 3 in total.

Where my husband is from in England, this seems like a common thing. He has many Facebook friends who had 3 kids, sometimes by different partners, all before 25, and aren't always married. The government helps provide for children too, so I think that helps young people who have children from going into poverty like so often happens in the US.

It was Sophie, Chloe has no children yet.

Some of the comments were horrible on the announcement. 18 is not an ideal age but she works has a supportive family and while we don't know if the dad is involved or not, she comes across in the youtube videoes as a mature 18 year old and she is one of the ones who seems to enjoy the younger siblings.

18 is young but what’s done is done. No use trashing her for it. It’s way better that her family is supportive. Unlike some fundie families.

Yeah Sophie is the oldest daughter. She has three kids, two girls and a boy. I believe Sophie had her eldest at a similar age to Millie. Her youngest is about 4, and she hasn’t had any since then.
Yeah, 18 isn’t ideal, but she definitely has a supportive family.

It appears that the dad of Millie's baby is not in the picture, in their last vlog it showed us both her scan and gender reveal and he wasn't present at either. Sue, Katie, Tillie, who still off school recovering from getting her leg lengthened, the youngest children went with her and her reveal in the garden was most of the children that live at home, Sophie and her children, Sue and Noel. She is having a girl, who will only be a few months younger than Sue's baby so by then Sue will probably pass down a lot of baby clothes to her. They also have a big enough house for her to live with them, as long as she needs to.
