UK’s ‘first gay dad’ expecting triplets with 20-year-old daughter’s ex-boyfriend

One of the UK’s first gay dads is expecting children with his daughter’s ex-boyfriend after splitting with his partner back in 2019.

Barrie Drewitt-Barlow and Tony became the UK’s first gay dads and the first same-sex couple back in 1999.

The couple split after 32 years of marriage last year and now Barrie is hooking up with his 20-year-old daughter Saffron’s ex-boyfriend Scott Hutchinson.

While ex-pair are still living in the same house, Tony is “delighted” at the new additions to their “very modern family”.

Tony, 55, and Barrie, who are living in a £6 million home in Florida, US, had their first children, twins Saffron and Aspen, twenty years ago.

And Saffron briefly dated bisexual Scott, 25, months before he fell deeply in love with 50-year-old Barrie.

Speaking to The Sun , Barrie said: “I am overjoyed to share the news that Scott and I are pregnant with triplet girls.

“We are using a surrogate and she’s fallen pregnant at the first attempt. Our family has too many boys and too much testosterone!

“So we used sex selection to even things out. We know we are having girls. Tony is excited too, although it does underline that our marriage really is over after all these years, so it is very bittersweet.

“But we are all going to remain living under the same roof. Tony is Dad, I’m Daddy and while at the moment Scott is stepdad, soon he’s going to be Daddy Two.

“We are happy, we want to co-parent our kids and that’s all that matters. If people don’t get it, that’s their problem, not ours.”

Even though Tony and Barrie’s daughter Saffron had dated Scott, she has given her blessing to their relationship.

Speaking last December, she said: “As long as they’re happy, I’m not bothered.”

The couple’s triplets are due on October 15, which is Barrie’s birthday, and they have already splashed out a lot of money on a nursery.

Barrie said: “These girls are going to have everything! They will have the best I can find. We are going to spoil them rotten.”
