Ch-ch-ch-changes are afoot! Six months after rock legend David Bowie died of cancer, his son, director Duncan Jones, has welcomed a baby boy with wife, Rodene Ronquillo. 

“Stenton David Jones. Born July 10th, exactly six months after his granddad made room for him. Love you both so,” he tweeted with a light-hearted cartoon sketch featuring generations of Jones men. 

The “Warcraft” director also expressed his love and gratitude to his “warrior woman” wife on social media after their son’s birth. 

The couple announced the pregnancy in February with a drawing of a cartoon fetus and the words “I’m waiting” in the speech balloon. The tweet also revealed that the late rocker knew he was going to be a grandfather before his death in January. 

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

After news of Bowie’s death broke, Jones shared a heartbreaking tribute to his father, posting an old photo of himself as a toddler on his dad’s shoulders. 

“Very sorry and sad to say it’s true. I’ll be offline for a while. Love to all,” he wrote on Twitter.

Bowie would have been proud.

Congrats to the new parents!
