It's been one month since pop icon David Bowie lost his 18-month battle with cancer—a solemn anniversary his family marked not with anguish, but with the announcement of new life. On Wednesday, Bowie's son, director Duncan Jones, 44, took to Twitter to share the news that his wife Rodene Ronquillo is expecting.

"1 month since dad died today. Made this card for him at Christmas. Due in June. Circle of life. Love you, granddad." Jones tweeted along with a card featuring a hand-drawn illustration of a smiling fetus that he gave his father.

Ronquillo, a photographer, joined the Twitter conversation shortly after the news went public and joked, "Shame on those of you who just thought I was really fat and didn't say anything. HAHA. ;)"

The couple tied the knot in November 2012, shortly after Ronquillo was diagnosed with breast cancer.

"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!" Jones tweeted at the time.
