Source - The well-documented relationship between Britain’s “first gay dads” has officially come to an end — as one of the men is now “in love” and dating his daughter’s ex-boyfriend, a report said.
Tony and Barrie Drewitt-Barlow — who were England’s first same-sex couple to be named on a birth certificate as parents — have parted ways and Barrie opened up about their new unconventional living arrangement to The Sun on Saturday.
“I’ve fallen in love with Scott and he has done the same,” said Barrie, 50, referring to the ex of his 19-year-old daughter, Saffron, who is openly bisexual.
“I feel stupid at my age to have these feelings about someone other than Tony and half my age. But when you know something is right, it’s right. We have not made definite plans but I would like to marry Scott.”
Scott, 25, and Barrie are continuing to live in the family’s $7.5 million Florida mansion, along with Tony and Saffron and the rest of the family.
Man meets man, they fall in love and have a daughter…then bang that daughter’s boyfriend. I love a feel good story. The strange part about this one, though, is that they all seem to be living together. Or at the very least taking pictures together…
I hope that wasn’t their Christmas card. Here’s a photo of the happy couple alone:
In case you were wondering why they (the husbands) broke up in the first place, it’s because Barrie fell out of love when Tony got cancer.
Barrie said that while Tony is his “true love,” they grew romantically distant in recent years, with the two sleeping in separate bedrooms.
That, together with Tony’s deteriorating health following a 2006 cancer diagnosis, led them to drift “into a platonic relationship.”
Seems like a good guy. The best part about the whole thing is that it’s a great look for the gay community. Totally doesn’t add to the stereotype that we’re all sex crazed hornballs who can’t stay monogamous. Oh well. Best of luck to Barrie and his twink lover. I’m sure it will last. Hopefully Saffron is okay with being eskimo brothers with her dad.
