The mother of nine also revealed she never set out to have such a large family as she told the publication: “There seriously never was that conversation between me and Clive.”
She revealed the babies "seemed to keep coming" and was even surprised to discover she was pregnant with her ninth child, Nancy.
She described feeling a bit “weird” one morning so she went to visit her doctor where she was given a scan and a heartbeat was picked up.
She said: “Well, they picked up a great big heartbeat because I was 20 weeks. Then I had her at about 36 weeks.”
The TV favourite also chatted about the fact she “absolutely did not” have birthing plans and described her births: “They grind my gears. Just breathe deeply and what will be will be.”
Amanda has experienced quick labours with her children all being under two hours and has only made it to hospital twice and gave birth to five “en route” to the hospital.
She goes on to share that baby number eight, Clemmie, was born in the middle of the night and she only woke husband Clive up once she was born.
The reality star admitted to believing she is “too old” to have any more children now she is in her late 40s.
Amanda recently opened up on “testing times” as her large family battled Covid-19.
She took to her Twitter page to share an update with her 174,900 followers after being silent on the social media platform for a few days.
TV personality Amanda shared a clip of her daughter in a pink dress as she ran down a hill as she told people: "Making great strides." with a woman running emoji.
She added: "*We’re fine but a few of us have been laid low with a dose of the [microbe emoji]* #yorkshire #ill #recovery #COVID".
The star went on: "These have been ‘testing’ times to say the least !" with a microbe emoji and a syringe emoji.
She continued: "But we’re not making a meal of it as we are all fine (albeit a bit fed up and fractious). #yorkshire #COVID19 #recovery #outdoors #test".
