One of UKs first gay dads plans triplets with ex-husband and daughters ex

One of Britain's first gay dads has revealed he's hoping to have triplets with his ex-husband and much younger fiancé.

Barrie Drewitt-Barlow made headlines in 1999 with his ex Tony after becoming the first gay couple to be registered as parents.

Dad-of-six Barrie, 51, separated from Tony in 2019 then dated his daughter's ex-partner Scott Hutchinson, 25, before getting engaged.

They had a baby in 2020 after both donating sperm with an egg donor via surrogacy, although they don't know the biological dad.

Now after welcoming Valentina two years ago, Barrie has revealed his plans to start a family with his fiancé and ex-husband.

Confirming the news to Closer, the dad claimed a surrogate is lined up to be implanted with three embryos in the next few weeks.

One embryo is Valentina's biological sister, while the others have been frozen for 22 years since Barrie and Tony began the process.

It is believed the older batch were fertilised only with Barrie's sperm, meaning Tony won't have a biological link to the new babies.

Yet Barrie is determined to become the first three people of the same sex to have their names on their kids' birthday certificates.

The dad said: "Even though Tony and I are separated, we are still very much a family.

"We have made history as the first same-sex couple to have our names on our children's birth certificates.

"Now we want to make history again as 'throuple' dads."

Barrie added: "I love being a dad more than anything and don't see myself stopping having babies any time soon."

The three have already found a surrogate, who will be implanted with the embryos in the next few weeks.

Dad-of-six Barrie had more children with Tony after the birth of his eldest children, twins Saffron and Aspen, now 22, in 1999.

They welcomed Orlando in 2004, who is now 17, and twins Jasper and Dallas, 10, in 2011.

After 32 years together, the couple separated and Barrie found love again with Scott, who is daughter Saffron's ex-boyfriend.

Barrie previously told how he's often slated for dating his daughter's ex-boyfriend.

Talking on his show My Extraordinary Family, he said: "Lots of people think that it's weird that I would be dating my daughter's ex.

"I see the keyboard warriors. I see the types of things they write. But I love it! Bring it on!"

He lives with all six of his children, Scott, as well as his ex-husband Tony and his new partner Brent.

It comes after the dad revealed he loves spoiling his kids with £500,000 rings and £120,000 private jets.
