Unfortunately, the whole Radford family was to suffer a crushing blow in 2014. After Casper’s birth, Sue became pregnant with another boy, Alfie. But during a routine scan, she got the worst news an expectant mother can possibly get. Alfie had no heartbeat. He was delivered stillborn, just a few weeks before the Radfords’ second granddaughter was born.
The Radfords were devastated. But they spoke out about their grief in blog posts and even agreed to be filmed for a new series of their show which would deal with the aftermath of the tragic event. “I am hoping that this pain does get easier because at the moment it is so painful. I have days when I’m ok then the grief hits me all over again,” Sue wrote on the family website. “So many people have messaged us to say they are going through the same and my heart goes out to you all.”
