Despite the separation, Barry and Tony still live together in a £ 6million mansion.

In addition to Saffron and his twin Aspen, they also have three other children.

Tony will be the godfather of Barrie and Scott’s new daughter.

Barrie told The Sun, “We’re so excited to be dads again. Tony is also excited, although it does underline that our marriage is truly over after all these years, so he’s very bittersweet.

“But we’re all going to be living under one roof. Tony is a dad, I am a dad and while Scott is a step-dad for the moment, soon he will be dad two.

“We’re happy, we want co-parenting our kids and that’s all that matters. If people don’t understand, that’s their problem, not ours. “
