David Bowie's son, Duncan Jones, reveals icon's grandchild on the way

David Bowie would have become a grandfather this summer, the legendary singer’s son announced in a tweet honoring his father.

Exactly a month after his dad passed away, Duncan Jones shared the news Wednesday on social media in a post featuring a picture of a card he gave his dad.

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