One of Britain’s first gay fathers has revealed he hopes to conceive triplets with his ex-husband and his toyboy fiancée.
Barrie Drewitt-Barlow, 51, made history with his then-partner Tony Drewitt-Barlow in 1999, when they became the first gay couple to be registered as parents after welcoming twins Saffron and Aspen via surrogacy, followed by a son, Orlando.
Barrie, the father of six, divorced Tony in 2019 and got together with his new fiancée Scott Hutchinson, 25, who used to date his daughter, with the couple welcoming daughter Valentina in October 2020.
Both men donated sperm to get Valentina with an egg donor via surrogacy, and they don’t know who her biological father is.

One embryo is Valentina’s biological sister and was previously fertilized with sperm from Barrie or Scott, while the other two have been frozen for 22 years since Barrie first began the surrogacy process with Tony.

Still, Barrie is determined that they will become the first three people of the same sex to have their names on their children’s birth certificates, and that they will raise the children together as a family.

“Nothing makes me happier than seeing my kids light up when I buy them the latest design gear or a new set of wheels,” he told Fabulous Digital at the time.
‘None of my children have an allowance, what is the need? Instead, Aspen, Saffron and Orlando, 17, have an unlimited Black Amex card. They can just spend what they want and at the end of the month I pick up the bill.
