Who is Saffron Drewitt-Barlow? Teen with a £1million wardrobe and a £400k Faberge ring using a 'famous singer' as a surrogate
HER wardrobe contains dresses from Prada and Burberry, her jewellery box contains a £400,000 Faberge ring and she's spent $100,000 on surgery.
But who is Saffron Drewitt-Barlow and what happened with her ex?
Who is Saffron Drewitt-Barlow?
Saffron is an 21-year-old teen who is considered the ultimate daddy’s girl, with not one but two millionaire fathers who indulge her every whim as she grew up.
She first made headlines as a baby when she and her twin brother Aspen became the first children in the UK to be registered as having two fathers and no mother.
Her dads, Barrie and Tony Drewitt-Barlow, were the first gay men in the UK to father children through surrogacy.
They went on to have son Orlando, who's now 16, and twin boys Jasper and Dallas, nine.
How much surgery has Saffron had?
Saffron has already spent $100,000 on procedures despite only turning 21 in December.
She says she has the total backing of her two dads.
Writing in her new Fabulous column, she said: "I was tiny before, I didn’t even have to wear a bra. I basically never bothered, I was a 34AA but have gone to a full C.
"When I told my daddy [Barrie] what I was planning he just said, ‘Oh go big. If you’re paying for something get the biggest and the best you can so you don’t have to go back.’
"He was really anti me keeping it natural, he wanted me to get a DD. But I didn’t want them to be overblown, it’s not for me.
"I’m having it on Tuesday, it’s my treat after my dad [Tony] gave me $15million last week to celebrate a business windfall.
"It’s costing me $30,000, which is nothing really.
"Before these two procedures I’d only had my lips done, I started that when I was 16 because I hated how thin they were.
Pre-Covid times I’d have top-ups every three-to-six months, I’ve probably spent about $50,000 in total on them."
What happened with Saffron's ex?
The heiress had previously dated Scott Hutchison, 25, whom she had planned to have a baby with via a surrogate herself as she considered herself "too posh to push".
However, Scott has since had his head turned by non other than Saffron's very own daddy Barrie.
Barrie and Tony's "slid into a platonic relationship" after Tony was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2006.
Scott became a "shoulder to cry on" for Barrie while Tony, who's now in remission, went through hospital treatment in 2018.
Speaking to Closer, Saffron revealed Tony gave Barrie and Scott his blessing, and said her other dad has found happiness with his nurse, Brent.
She added Tony "doesn't have long left" and wants to die still married to his "first love" Barrie.
But Barrie wants a divorce so he can marry Scott, who he proposed to in August – on a yacht holiday with Saffron.
"I'm not happy about him divorcing and remarrying so quickly," Saffron said.
Barrie and Scott welcomed a daughter called Valentina born via surrogate, in September.
Saffron still lives with dads Barrie and Tony, ex Scott, her twin brother Aspen, younger brother Orlando, 17, twins Jasper and Dallas, 10, and baby Valentina in a 10-bedroom mansion costing £6 million.
And she insists there's no "weird love triangle" between her, her dad and her ex.
How much money does Saffron have?
Saffron initially has a monthly allowance of £5,000 and, for their 18th birthday, the twins were bought identical Range Rovers – white for Saffron and black for Aspen.
Her indulgent parents invested £1million in Saffron’s first business – Barking Mad Cosmetics – with the plan being that she could stand on her own two feet.
But with Saffron confessing to Tony handing her $15million last week, it seems that she is still relying on a few cash gifts.
Saffron told the Daily Mail: “I know I am incredibly lucky. Dad and Daddy love the finer things in life, and that's something they have passed on to me.
“They have always been incredibly generous and love spoiling my brothers and me.
“They aren't afraid to let people see how we live. They're self-made, and they tell us that if you make your own money then you can choose to spend it how you like.”
What do Saffron's dads do?
Saffron – who calls Barrie Daddy and Tony Dad – says she is expected to pay back the £1million investment and to fund her own lifestyle now she is an adult.
She said: “Daddy (Barrie) sat me down and said that while they love spoiling me, I'm growing up and it's time for me to get a job.
“He said he and Dad are self-made millionaires, who grew up on a Manchester council estate, and they want me to make my own way in life and be as successful as them.”
The two men have a combined wealth of £40million from various business ventures, including a global medical research company.
Barrie said: “We are incredibly proud of all our children, but we've told them we intend to leave a lot of our millions to charity as we want our children to get jobs and make their own way in life, just as we did.
“While we make no apologies for spoiling them, we have also taught them the value of money and we never let them forget where we came from.”
Who is Saffron Drewitt-Barlow's mum?
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.
Although she has been lavished with the finer things in life, Saffron is determined to succeed in her own right.
She said: “I am not going to be just a rich kid sponging off her parents for the rest of my life.”
Barrie says he was happy to lend his daughter the money to start her business, saying: “I don't want any of my kids to have to work at McDonald's or mop floors to make ends meet, so I won't apologise for giving Saffron her first step on the ladder.”
What is in Saffron Drewitt-Barlow's beauty range?
Saffron’s beauty range includes a £30 moisturiser and a £25 night cream and she has already negotiated a deal with the TV shopping channel Ideal World.
She reveals she has loved cosmetics and make-up since she was small and she estimates she spends £30,000 a year on designer brands, including Tom Ford and Chanel.
She keeps the products in a room off her bedroom, known as her “glamour room”, which has glitter wallpaper, a Hollywood mirror and white fluffy chairs.
She also has her own tan room, where the whole family get fake tans on Friday nights.
The family spend most of the time in a £5million, ten-bedroom mansion in Tampa, Florida, but also keep a sprawling Essex mansion, which they regularly visit.

Saffron says: “Daddy gets really annoyed when he reads stories about lottery winners who say 'It will never change me' or who just leave the money in the bank as they don't know what to do with it. His view is that if you've earned it, then enjoy it.”
