UK’s First Gay Surrogate Fathers, Tony And Barrie Drewitt-Barlow, Split After 32 Years Together After One Fell For Daughter’s Ex
Tony and Barrie Drewitt-Barlow made history in 1999 when they became the first gay fathers to have children through surrogacy. Their decision, which was controversial and to an extent, inspirational, was hailed as a big step in the rights of gay parents in the UK and abroad.
As parents to surrogate twins, Saffron and Aspen, the millionaire couple was considered revolutionary, and when they later added a son and twin boys, they were revered as great parents.
In an unfortunate and heartbreaking twist, Barrie Drewitt-Barlow revealed that he has fallen in love with a man half his age, meaning that Britain's first gay parents had officially split!
