The couple seem to have pulled out all the stops for their special weekend, enjoying a spa, afternoon tea and lots of cocktails without their large brood.
Sue wrote on Instagram: “When your husband springs a surprise weekend away for you for your 29th wedding anniversary.”
The busy mum could be seen looking glam as she dressed up for their time together.
Their hotel even left them a note and muffins as treats for their celebrations.
But despite the incredible weekend planned, Sue admitted she was scared about leaving her youngest, Heidie, who was born last April during lockdown.
She said: “He’s such a romantic but have to say I’m extremely nervous about leaving Heidie for th first time, especially as she’s breastfed.
“Please tell me she’ll be ok she does have a bottle if I’m not around.”
However, it seems that Sue is enjoying the break from her whopping family, as she described the spa day as “bliss.”
Sue and Noel are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 27, Chloe, 26, Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, Luke, 20, Millie, 20, Katie, 18, James, 17, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 15, Josh, 14, Max, 12, Tillie, 11, Oscar, nine, Casper, eight, Hallie, six, Phoebe, five, Archie, four, Bonnie, two, and Heidie, one.
Sadly the couple’s 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.
The family famously doesn’t rely on benefits and is supported by their pie shop business.
The Radfords, who live in a 10-bed former care home, often show off their millionaire lifestyle on Instagram.
The family have recently opened their doors for Channel 5’s 22 Kids and Counting show, which documented their lives under one roof.
In the show, Sue revealed they have spent £1million raising their large brood and she has been pregnant for 16-and-a-half YEARS.
