Parents Of 10 Struggle To Afford $1,300 In Groceries Every Month But Still Want Baby 11


Clive and Louise Andrews are the parents of a pretty big family. The 50-year-old dad and 34-year-old mom have 10 kids, ranging in age from a few months to 17.

The parents often struggle to make ends meet. Louise is self-employed as a part-time cleaner, and Clive is a stay-at-home dad. They only make about $400 per week. They spend over $1,300 each month on groceries alone.

Because the family is so big, they live in two conjoined three-bedroom homes. One of the six bedrooms is used as a closet for all the family members. That leaves just five bedrooms for all 10 people.

When they decide to leave the house, they have to travel in two separate cars.

Things may not be easy for the Andrews family, but Clive and Louise love every minute of it — and they’re excited to try for baby 11.

The only thing stopping them from going for another baby right now is Louise’s health problems.
Louise and Clive Andrews, who live in Lincolnshire, UK, have 10 children.

The parents have three girls and seven boys, all between the ages of 5 months and 17 years.

Despite being short on cash (Louise makes just under $400 each week), Clive stays home with the kids full-time.

Why? He simply can’t imagine not spending all of his time with his little ones.

The family can’t afford to celebrate Christmas or go on vacations, but that doesn’t mean they don’t still have a wonderful time together.

It’s a busy life, but they love it.

Clive and Louise love their lives so much, in fact, that they want to try to have another child.

They know it could be challenging to have more kids, but they also know they have more than enough love in their hearts.

The only thing holding the couple back from trying to have another child is Louise’s potential pregnancy complications.

During her last few pregnancies, Louise had heart palpitations, which made her doctor concerned about any future pregnancies.

Once a doctor clears Louise for pregnancy, she and Clive plan on starting to try again immediately.

And honestly, one more kid probably won’t change their daily lives all that much.

Louise says she does 35 loads of laundry every week, and there’s no doubt that cooking for 12 is quite time-consuming.

Although Louise and Clive would have tons of other kids if they could, some of their kids think the parents should stop giving them more siblings.

For instance, while 14-year-old Hallan loves never being alone, 8-year-old Frankie thinks there are enough kids in the house.

Can you imagine what it would be like to have 10 children?

Do you know anybody with a family this big?
