While the baby’s arrival was imminent, Sue had gone to the hospital because she wasn’t feeling the baby move as much and ended up being induced.

‘On Tuesday evening I decided to go the hospital just to get a check up as she hadn’t been moving the same as she usually did at that time of the day, I thought they would just put me on a monitor for half an hour and then be sent home but that was not to be even after a good trace they decided to induce me due to reduced movements. I was so relieved as I’ve been so anxious this last few weeks and particularly that day.”

Hallie joins Sue and Noel’s 16 children Chris, Sophie, 21, Chloe, 19, Jack, 17, Daniel, 15, Luke, 14, Millie, 13, Katie, 12, James, 11, Ellie, 9, Aimee, 8, Josh, 7, Max, 6, Tillie, 4, Oscar, 3 and two-year-old Caspar. The couple lost their 17th child, Alfie, 21 weeks into pregnancy last year.  The new baby pays tribute to her brother by having Alphia as her middle name.
