Britain’s first gay dads have split up after one of them fell in love with their daughter’s ex-boyfriend, who is half his age.
Barrie Drewitt-Barlow, 50, and Tony were dubbed Britain’s first gay fathers in 1999 when a surrogate gave birth to their twins, Saffron and Aspen, now 19 years old.
Now, the dads have broken off their 32-year relationship after Barrie fell in love with Saffron’s 25-year-old ex-boyfriend Scott Hutchison.
What’s even more surprising is that the whole family are living together under one roof in Florida. Tony is referred to as Dad, Barrie is called Daddy and Scott is stepdad.
Barrie told the Sun: “I’ve fallen in love with Scott and he has done the same. I feel stupid at my age to have these feelings about someone other than Tony who is half my age.
“But when you know something is right, it’s right. We have not made definite plans but I would like to marry Scott. I’m not having a midlife crisis. This is the real deal.”
