It has been an emotional and difficult few weeks for them, following their devastating loss back in January, but we are delighted to say that we have some joyful news to report regarding the family of the late and great David Bowie.


The Starman singer’s son, Duncan Jones, revealed last night that he is going to become a father for the first time.


Director Jones took to Twitter to announce the news, confirming that his photographer wife Rodene Ronquillo is expecting their first child.



The 44-year-old paid a touching tribute to his beloved father as he made the announcement, which just so happened to fall on the one-month anniversary of his death.


Posting a photo of the card he created to share the news with his dad, Duncan wrote: “One month since dad died today. Made this card for him at Christmas. Due in June. Circle of life. Love you, granddad.”


The little bundle of joy would have been Bowie’s very first grandchild. The star passed away on January 10, following a brave battle with liver cancer.



Congratulations to Duncan and his family on their lovely news.


SHARE to spread the joy for the family at this bittersweet time.
