Baby makes it 13 for Hoo supermum Tania Sullivan after Timothy born at Medway Maritime Hospital in Gillingham

22 February 2014

Medway supermum Tania Sullivan has given birth to her 13th baby... and has not ruled out having more.

Timothy Sebastian Sullivan was born at Medway Maritime Hospital and has now been released from the special care baby unit, where he was being helped with breathing difficulties.

He weighed a healthy 7lbs 12oz after 39-year-old Tania had a caesarian section.

But he had to be moved to the Oliver Fisher unit when his oxygen levels dropped.

Tania and husband Mike, from Hoo, have been so impressed with his treatment that they have asked well-wishers to make donations to the department instead of sending cards and presents.

She said: "The care we have all received has been tremendous and, while nothing we could do could possibly repay the staff and the care received, we are putting in plans in place to raise funds for the unit through our site."

When Tania, who has written three books based on her family, was asked if baby number 14 was planned, she replied: "Who knows?"

Tania and Mike, 41, have 10 children together – Caitlin, 14, Harry, 11, Eddie, nine, Sid, eight, Patrick, six, Oliver, four, Joseph, three, twins Anna and Libby, two, and Isobel, 15 months.

Tania has two older children from a previous relationship, Ben, 21, and Stephanie, 19.
