Given how the world went into mourning over the loss of legendary music star David Bowie, one can only imagine what his family have been going through over the past four months.


Anyone who has lost a loved one will know just how comforting happy memories can be during low moments, and Bowie’s son Duncan Jones has opened up about one of his own most cherished throwbacks with his beloved father.


One month after Bowie’s passing, Duncan announced that he and his wife, Roden Ronquillo, are expecting their first child together – and this week, the dad-to-be revealed that it was Bowie himself who revealed the gender of their baby.



In an interview with E! News, Duncan recalled the special Christmas memory: “When we found out what the gender of our baby was going to be, we were able to get the doctor to write it on a card without us seeing it. Then I got to spend Christmas with my dad, and he actually told us what the gender was going to be.”


Back in February, when he announced the news to the world, Duncan shared a photo of a card he made to break the good news to his father in the first place.



“One month since dad died today. Made this card for him at Christmas. Due in June. Circle of life. Love you, granddad,” he tweeted.


What an incredible memory to treasure throughout his and his baby’s life.
