Congratulations are in order this weekend, with Duncan Jones announcing that he has become a father for the first time.
Duncan, the son of the late and great David Bowie, took to Twitter to reveal that he and wife Rodene Ronquillo welcomed a son on 10th July – exactly six months to the day that his beloved father passed away.
“Stenton David Jones. Born July 10th, exactly six months after his grandad made room for him. Love you both so,” he wrote, sharing a funny drawing of two parents and a baby.

The new father also gushed over his wife, adding: “All my love and awe to the incredible Rodene, who made a human being in her belly. Warrior woman and every day, my hero.”
Duncan announced the couple’s pregnancy a month after his father’s passing, in February, sharing an image of the card he gave to Bowie revealing the impending arrival of ‘Baby Jones’.

Duncan, 45, chose Christmastime to tell Bowie that he was going to become a grandfather for the first time.
Congratulations to Duncan, Rodene and their loved ones.
