In bittersweet news, David Bowie’s son Duncan Jones has announced he’s going to be a dad – one month after losing his father to cancer.

The 44-year-old film director shared the news on Twitter, posting an emotional note in honour of his late father.

‘1 month since dad died today. Made this card for him at Christmas. Due in June. Circle of life. Love you, grandad,’ Duncan captioned a cartoon image of a baby in utero.

The famous rocker passed away from cancer on January 10, following an 18-month battle.

Duncan married his long-time love Rodene Ronquillo in 2012, the same day she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Rodene, 35, was thankfully given the all-clear in 2013, after undergoing a double mastectomy and chemotherapy. And now, the pair have shared the exciting news that they are going to be parents for the first time!

Congratulations to the couple!
