BARRIE and Tony Drewitt-Barlow were the first gay men in the UK to father children through surrogacy.
The two men are multi-millionaires and in March 2021 starred in Bravo's Below Deck: Sailing Yacht.
Who are Tony and Barrie Drewitt-Barlow?
Barrie and Tony Drewitt-Barlow were the first gay men in the UK to father children through surrogacy.
The couple met in 1987 when Tony stopped at a petrol station in Manchester to ask for directions.
At the time, Tony had won the runner up prize in the the New Scientist of the year award.
The couple split in 2019 but still live together in Florida with their children.
How did they become millionaires?
The two men have a combined wealth of £40million.
They have made their money from various business ventures, including a global medical research company.
They also earn cash from real estate.
How many children do Tony and Barrie Drewitt-Barlow have?
Barrie and Tony had been together for 11 years before they decided they wanted to have children.
According to their website, they had spoken about it for years but had never done anything about it.
First, the millionaire couple looked at adoption with Essex County Council, but they then went on to make history, in 1999, after fathering twins Saffron and Aspen, now 22, with a surrogate mum in California.
Saffron and Aspen were conceived using the donor eggs of one woman, Tracie McCune, and were then carried in the womb of another woman, Rosalind Bellany.
Although Barrie and Tony each fathered a child, they have never revealed which dad is the biological father of which twin as they want to be equal parents.
They later went on to have son Orlando, who's now 17, and twin boys Jasper and Dallas, ten.
Their kids call Barrie "Daddy" and Tony "Dad".
