Saffron Drewitt-Barlow is only 19 years old. She is neither an actress nor a model, but the contents of her closet are estimated at £1 million and her jewelry collection at £.400,000. The girl’s name has been in the headlines since 1999.
In 1999, Barry and Tony Drewitt-Barlow became the first gay couple in Britain to have children with the help of a surrogate. They were twins – a girl Saffron and a boy Aspen. Then came another son Orlando and twins Jasper and Dallas.
So Saffron and Aspen became the first children officially registered in a non-traditional, two-father family. That said, Barry is the father of one child and Tony is the father of the other, but they never say which one, so they raise the children equally.
Tony and Barry are loving and indulgent dads. They recently announced that they want more children and ideally triplet girls. According to them, “there’s too much testosterone in this house.”
For her eighteenth birthday, Saffron received a white Range Rover, and her twin brother Aspen was given the same car, but in black.
The girl admitted that fathers are not afraid to show others their standard of living, because they have achieved everything themselves. They teach their children that the money they earn can be spent as they see fit.
Now the Drewitt-Barlow couple has a combined capital of £40 million and a research medical company with offices around the world. Saffron gets £5,000 a month for out-of-pocket expenses. But her fathers think it’s time for their daughter to think about her own business.
Tony and Barry’s children also know that they don’t have to relax. Much of their fathers’ inheritance will go to charity.
