David Bowie's son Duncan Jones announced he and his wife are expecting their first child, with a cartoon posted on Twitter.

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

The director's tweet yesterday came exactly one month after his father died aged 69 from cancer.

Jones' wife, photographer Rodene Ronquillo, also shared the cartoon, while Bowie's widow, Iman, posted it on Instagram.

Shame on those of you who just thought I was really fat and didn't say anything. HAHA. ;)

Jones later joked that the "best news" was that by June he'd have his own model for his "directors as babies" series.

& the best news, if you've been a fan of my "directors as babies", I'll now have access to my own, poseable model!

Bowie's death led to an outpouring of grief around the world.

It was revealed last month that he requested that his ashes be scattered in a Buddhist ritual in Bali, and astronomers have renamed a constellation in his memory.
