Viewers were treated to a glimpse of how the other half live tonight on the Channel 4 documentary My Millionaire Dads And Me.
The show followed round millionaire dads Tony and Barrie – who hit the headlines in the late 90s when they became the first gay dads in Britain – and their surrogate kids Aspen and Saffron.
Aspen received a Porsche for his 16th birthday – yep, one whole year before he can even legally start lessons – and seemed fairly underwhelmed by it. Much to the amusement of viewers at home.
As if this dad spent 110K on a porche for his sons 16th birthday and he said he's not into cars, haha in actual stitches #MillionaireDads

Saffron showed a similar attitude when the family went shopping and she picked up a “bargain dress” for her 16th birthday party at $495 (Â£380) – and that’s when some people weren’t sure they liked the direction the show was taking.
Watching My Millionaire Dads and Me – what an ungrateful bunch of kids ! The daughter "things are better when they're expensive" ð

All this guy talks about is how much he's spent, or has, on 'My Millionaire Dads and Me'. It's actually so vulgar.

@Channel4 @Gaydads Thought #millionairedads was about gay parenting?Not how to raise spoilt rich brats who don't seem to appreciate anything

However, no matter what people thought of how much the kids were treated to, they agreed the negativity the dads had received was very saddening. For some, it was very inspiring viewing.
Watching my millionaire dads and me, alright the kids are spoilt but the media backlash the guys have had for having children is so sad

@Gaydads Kids are happy and secure and LOVED.
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE MORE IMPORTANT
Congratulations on building a beautiful family.
