The family saga of the Drewitt-Barlows grows ever more complicated.
Britain’s highly publicized “first gay dads”, Barrie Drewitt-Barlow and Tony Drewitt-Barlow, divorced after 32 years of marriage last year. Then Tony started dating Scott Hutchinson, 25, and the two announced they were expecting a child through a surrogate. Tony happens to be an ex-boyfriend of Saffron Drewitt-Barlow, daughter of Barrie and Tony. Great, we’re all caught up!

Over the weekend, Barrie confirmed on Instagram he’d popped the question to Scott, and now the two plan to marry. The proposal came during a family vacation in Croatia, with a supportive Saffron in attendance.
Clearly not desiring any public attention during this private and intimate moment, Barrie posted a video of a boat deck covered in rose pedals and tea lights, asking viewers in a sing-songy tone “What’s happening here tonight? I wonder what it could be?” and finally resting the camera on a sizable diamond ring:
He also shared some family photos from the occasion:
And then reshared them just for emphasis:
Barrie and Tony Drewitt-Barlow made international headlines in 1999 when they won the legal right to be named as parents to their new twins Saffron and Aspen. It was the first time a same-sex couple appeared as official co-parents in the UK and opened the door for other queer parents.
They later had three more kids and moved to Florida, where the whole family–including Scott and Tony–now live.
Everybody needs a daddy.
Well isn’t that special! Hope they’re happy and this isn’t a May – December romance – hookup. if they’re really happy, who is anyone to question this? Too many of us never find someone that’s the perfect partner, whatever the definition of ‘perfect partner’ is despite looking for years and end up alone some by choice and some by lack of choices.
not this daddy.
I give this relationship the same weight as I do Joe Exotics marriage. Joe pampered them with new trucks and all kinds of toys too. Something required of all sugar dads. Otherwise another daddy will come in and steal them.
Honestly I don’t blame them though. All sugar boys have a very short shelf life. If they’re lucky daddy will croak before that happens.
Gay for pay?
Having to embarrass yourself with that bleached and plucked queen I’d say he deserves every penny.
Just another stereotype being perpetuated.
Good lord, at least i hope the guy broke up with the daughter before hook up with her dad.
Family reunions must be akward, i’m sure Almodovar can make a great film with this
*rolls eyes* at all that visual-vulgarity
Hey, Don’t hate,
His fortunate to find someone that cares for him. I met a gentleman when I visited Saudi Arabia he was young 28 I was a young us marine 22 (a foolish lad) I was to much into being independent wanting to make it on my own. Didn’t want to be kept, missed-out. I could have been driving my own Rolls Royce w/frills oh well. I say;
Live and let live. Save all you can & invest you never know when that ship will dock.
OK…..Wake up and smell the coffee!!! I hate to be the A HOLE here but I’m sorry. GOLD DIGGER! I have a hard time believing there is any REAL love here. WAIT! Yes, there is. The LOVE of MONEY!!! HEEHHE AHHAHAHA EHEHHEHE The young guy was only dating the daughter to get to DADDY…and all his MONEY!!!! Got it???
I’ve just got to say that his daughters looks could turn any straight man gay. He’s no looker but given the choice I’d have to take one for the team lol.
Don’t we hate it when people judge us? Especially people we don’t even know. Let’s not be those bitter people. These guys (and the family) seem to be happy and if it works for them, great! Nothing else needs to be said. We should all be so fortunate to have someone who loves us. Cheers guys. Wishing you a happy life together.
It’s hard to decide which one of these Ladyboys looks more ridiculous in their outfit, the 25yr old with the forced capri pants and the dangling earring or the old man with that hideous red jacket. Good god.
That’s a neck tattoo, not an earring.
A surrogate child after a year- JEEZ! The world is over populated to the breaking point and these idiots just keep pumping them out.
That would be the third world that is over populating the globe. At least I won’t be asked to donate to Save the Children to support their kid.
Why are you still telling us about these gross people? Eww.
It’s not the age difference that bothers me so much, but the fact that he dated the daughter first. Entitled Piggery, at it’s finest.
Why are this RIch ones so damn nasty. Lol?! Seriously! ??
I can’t wait for the BBC mystery series when Daddy Tony turns up missing, and Scott and Saffron turn up with a suspicious will leaving nothing to Aspen and the other two siblings, and claiming a large portion of Barrie’s estate as well.
Angela Lansbury will play Miss Marple.
As I read this, the thought of Don Trump and Melania comes to mind. There is no way in f-ing hell that Melly-Mel married Don for looks and personality. Same appplies here unless the younger dude has some serious psycholoigcal crossed wires (E.G., was molested by an older man when he was younger).
“Missing millionaire Falls off yatch and his twink boy toy inherence all, daughter left high and dry.

Of course they moved to Florida.
