UK’s first gay dad engaged to daughter’s ex-boyfriend – and they’re expecting

A dad became engaged to his daughter’s ex-boyfriend while all three holidayed in Croatia together.

Millionaire Barrie Drewitt-Barlow proposed to his daughter’s ex, Scott Hutchinson, this year.

The dad and his ex-husband Tony Drewitt-Barlow made news in 1999 as they became the first gay men to father twins through surrogacy in the UK.

They later won the legal right to be named as parents on a birth certificate.

The couple, who are known as Britain’s “first gay dads” have since separated, but still live together.

Now, Barrie is engaged to his daughter’s ex-boyfriend.

And, the couple are having their own child together through surrogacy.

The proposal took place on the island of Hvar off the coast of Split.

One of Barrie’s twin daughters, Saffron, 20, dated Scott, 25, for several months.

But, he fell in love with dad Barrie, 50, instead.

Mancunian Barrie, who lives in Florida, posted a video of the proposal setting online.

A boat was decorated with candles and rose petals.

There was also champagne and a large silver and diamond ring.

Barrie can be heard saying: "What happened here tonight?

"I wonder what it could be?

“There's Champagne, there's roses, uh, uh, uh, oh… what do you think happened here?

“And is that something over there?"

Barrie and his ex Tony are worth a reported £40m.

They still live together in a £6m mansion and had three more children after their twins, Saffron and Aspen.

The dad set up the British Surrogacy Centre of America in 2000.

Barrie and new fiancé Scott will welcome their first baby girl in October.

Tony will be the godfather.

Speaking to The Sun, Barrie said: "We are thrilled we are going to become daddies again. 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."
