Duncan Jones is going to be a dad.

To mark the one-month passing of his father, David Bowie, Jones took to Twitter Wednesday and paid tribute to the late legendary singer by sharing a special announcement: His wife Rodene Ronquillo is pregnant.

“1 month since dad died today. Made this card for him at Christmas. Due in June. Circle of life. Love you, grandad,” the English director tweeted, sharing a cartoon drawing of his baby on the way.

Ronquillo, a photographer, shared the happy tweet on her own feed, tweeting, “Shame on those of you who just thought I was really fat and didn’t say anything. Haha.”

Bowie‘s widow Iman also took to social media on Wednesday, honoring the anniversary of her husband’s death by sharing an inspirational quote from Rune Lazuli on Instagram. “Each tear is a poet, a healer, a teacher,” the image reads.

Jones, 44, is Bowie’s son from his first marriage to Angie Bowie. The dad-to-be and Ronquillo were married in November 2012 after he found a lump in her breast.

“We were a little overwhelmed by the news, cancer & election day so decided to make it a set, ran down to the courthouse and got married!” he tweeted at the time.

In January, Bowie died at the age of 69 after a lengthy battle with liver cancer.
