David Bowie’s son reveals that the late singer was to be a granddad


David Bowie's eldest child, film director Duncan Jones, has announced that he is expecting his first child with wife Rodene Ronquillo. 

Just one month after his father's death, the 44-year-old announced the happy news in a heart-warming tweet. 

The tweet revealed a card Duncan had made for his father at Christmas asserting that the late rockstar knew he was to become a granddad before he passed away on January 10. 

The legendary rock star died from a lengthy battle with cancer at the age of 68. 

Duncan, who is a Bafta-award winning film director, is the only child from David Bowie's first marriage to Angie Bowie though he is long-estranged from his mother. 

He has a younger half-sister from David's marriage to Iman.
