Diary: It’s a boy oh boy scenario as pops crackles, but manages not to snap

Fellow lobbying friends tell me that APCO’s Nick DeLuca has a fetish for flashy cars and, despite his fast approaching 38th birthday, still considers himself a bit of a swinger.

still considers himself a bit of a swinger.



Perhaps part of DeLuca’s secret to eternal youth is that he remains

determinedly single and, more importantly, has so far escaped the bonds

of fatherhood.



Or so he thought ...



DeLuca went on holiday in California this summer with his pal Patrick

Kerr, public affairs manager at London First, a charity set up to

promote the capital.



The two friends decided to rent a car and when it came to filling in the

insurance papers the lady from Avis inquired whether they worked for the

same company.



On receiving a negative answer she paused, carefully looked her

customers up and down and, with a flash of sudden realisation exclaimed:

’I know, father and son.’



DeLuca, mortified at discovering parenthood in such an unexpected

manner, slumped down over the counter, head in hands.



As if this weren’t enough, younger colleagues now regularly greet DeLuca

with a cheery ’Hi pops!’
