Despite missing out on a total of 33 birthdays since 1968, the car salesman admitted being born in a leap year does have its benefits.
'I'm used to missing out on my real birthday, but being born in a leap year did have its benefits when I was at school,' he said.
'You know what children are like - especially boys. We were always giving each other birthday bumps or beats.
'But I usually got away with it because on February 28 I'd tell them "it's my birthday tomorrow" and then on March 1 I'd say "my birthday was yesterday".'
This year, the father and son are celebrating with a joint party. Link
