James Green had always wanted to be dad. So when he and his wife, Cloe, were expecting their first child, he was obviously excited.
When their second child came into the world, the British couple decided to keep going and make a large family together.
Every time Cloe thought they had enough children, James would wink at her and smile, “Just one more, Clo.”
James simply loved being a dad. Even though Cloe was a full-time mom, James worked from home so he could be there for his children as much as possible.
James was the one who took the children to and from school, and he spent most evenings with them, too. He was loving, energetic, and a seemingly healthy father.
When the couple’s fifth child was born with cerebral palsy, James and Cloe decided that their family was large enough. Cloe went to the doctor and was fitted with a contraceptive implant.
But when Cloe unexpectedly became pregnant again, James said it was fate.
The couple went on to have eight children, after which they agreed that their family was finally complete.
Then on December 4, 2015 — just 12 weeks after welcoming their youngest child — life changed in an instant.
Cloe and James fell in love as teenagers. At the beginning of the relationship, James often talked about having children. He wanted to start early and have a big family.
James was a big guy with a heart of gold — and lots of love to give.
Cloe was 17 years old when she became pregnant the first time. It came as a bit of a surprise, but she and James were thrilled about their first son, Leo.
