I got my daughter a £200k Range Rover push present & my grandbaby's nursery is all Harrods, says Barrie Drewitt-Barlow | The Sun

MANY new mums may receive presents such as a teddy or nappies for their baby – but not everyone is Saffron Drewitt-Barlow.

The new mum, 23, who welcomed baby Marina on June 24, has been given a £200,000 Range Rover as a push present from her multi-millionaire dad Barrie Drewitt-Barlow.

The Manchester-born businessman, 51, who is worth a staggering £200m, said to Fabulous: “Saffron is doing so well. 

“I have bought her a new Range Rover Vogue which was $250k (£200k) but at the Miami house, we already have a fleet of cars including Lambos G-Wagons, and Rolls. 

“We bought her a full wardrobe of clothes as she was complaining she didn’t fit into anything and we decided to do the same for the baby and her husband at the same time, so we had our stylist go shopping to Prada and all the designer shops.”

Barrie previously revealed that he gifted baby Marina a £1million house, which they will rent out to give the youngster an income.

The youngster has received a £5million trust fund from Barrie’s ex Tony.

But that’s not all the newborn has been showered with.

Barrie continued: “We spent thousands on clothes and nursery items, but this is my first granddaughter and I want her to have everything. 

“Everything was bought from Harrods in London and shipped over to Miami Beach.

“Nothing was too much money or trouble. And it never will be.”

Barrie said Marina also received a £5,000 Dior pram and pushchair from Saffron’s brother Aspen.

This follows Barrie, who spends £4million for his family's Christmas each year, buying his own son Romeo a very unconventional gift when he was born last year; a £2.5 million yacht.

Saffron and husband Conor, who tied the knot in Vegas in May, are currently living in Barrie’s £18million Miami beach house with their baby daughter.

Barrie added: “Although they don’t want a nanny and doing all the baby work themselves, they still have a team of housekeepers and our personal chef, David has moved in with them to make sure the young family is getting everything they need food wise.

“They plan to be there for at least 8 months and then return to the UK.”

Dad-of-eight Barrie, who now has three grandkids, explained Saffron wanted to give birth in the US so her daughter would have an American citizenship, like she does.

Barrie and ex-husband Tony made their money from various business ventures including a trans-Atlantic surrogacy business and a global medical research company.

A few years ago, Barrie confirmed he had fallen for daughter Saffron’s ex Scott, and they are now engaged, and share Valentina, two, and baby Romeo, who arrived last August via surrogate.

Barrie, who has humble beginnings, said it’s important to him that his kids don’t struggle in minimum wage jobs.

He said: “I have lived that life and I don’t want it for my children and now, for my grand kids. 

“I have worked 20 hour days so they don’t need to. 

“I'm not sure why people have a problem with what I buy my family at the end of the day, I've worked hard and I want to do right by them all.

“I don’t worry about spoiling my family, I love it, who wouldn’t want to spoil their family?

“I bet if you did a poll, nine out of 10 people would say if they had it or won the lottery, the first thing they would do is treat the kids or their other family members.

“Those that say they wouldn’t are lying.”

Barrie is used to £20,000 meals out and living in seven lavish mansions around the world, including in Florida and Essex.

Giving up his millions, he was recently forced to live on a council estate with a £57 budget for a week on Channel 5’s Rich House Poor House, as he swapped lives with a struggling mum.

Meanwhile Barrie, who made history with ex-partner Tony for being Britain’s first gay dads to twins Saffron and Aspen in 1999, handed over his £6million Essex mansion and chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce to single mum Ocean for the TV experience.

Upon arrival, the council flat was a far cry from the houses he lives in, which have a minimum of six bedrooms and full 24/7 staff including a driver and personal barman.

At the end of the experience, he prompted Ocean to break down in tears, investing £250,000 in her baby food business.

Speaking of the experience, he said: “I know half the country is struggling right now and I feel for them, I wanted to maybe help at least one family have a better future and taking part in this show, it has helped me to do that.”

Barrie shared the news that baby Marina had been born on Instagram, saying: “My girl had a girl of her very own today.

“I would like to introduce you all to Marina Drewitt-Barlow-Tucker born 36 weeks and 3 days … 24•06•2023, 6lbs 9oz, 3:58am.

“Tony Drewitt-Barlow and I could not be prouder of Saffron Drewitt-Barlow and Conor Tucker for producing this little Princess for our family.

“Our first granddaughter and a new princess to spoil.”

Barrie revealed the inspiration behind Saffron and Conor choosing Marina’s name, and said it has a very poignant meaning.

He explained: “When they found out that she was having a girl, Saffron and Conor decided to call her Marina, after Conor’s mum who had passed away several years ago.
