Dwina and Robin Gibb's son RJ expecting his first child

04 FEBRUARY 2013

Eight months after the death of Bee Gee singer Robin Gibb, HELLO! can exclusively reveal that his widow Dwina is to become a grandmother for the first time.

Dwina and Robin's son RJ is expecting his first child with girlfriend Megan Golub in July. News of the impending birth has brought some comfort to the grieving family.

"Losing my father was devastating," RJ told HELLO!. "But now that I'm about to become a father myself, my sadness has made way for a sense of happiness I could never have imagined."

"Dad loved children and the idea of having grandchildren," he added. "He would have been over the moon to see his first grandchild. It's such a shame that he won't be there to hold him."

Dwina added that her late husband adored children. "He loved them. Grandchildren would have found him hilarious because he had a great sense of humour and made everything fun."

When RJ was little, Robin would dress up as Father Christmas, with pillows stuffed into his red tunic, and make up strange names for the reindeer.

"He would have relished his role as a grandfather and been brilliant at it. When I lost Robin I wasn't expecting this. It's absolutely wonderful."

Of course, the months since Robin's death have been incredibly difficult for both Dwina and RJ. "New Year's was the hardest," she told HELLO!.

"As Big Ben chimed midnight and fireworks lit up the sky, I heard the skirl of the bagpipes and felt tearful. I'd spent every New Year's Eve of our 32 years together with Robin and missed him desperately.

"To welcome in 2013, we all went outside and wrote Robin's name in the sky with sparklers. I was thrilled about the baby, but sad that Robin wasn't with me to share the happiness."

RJ takes comfort from the fact that Robin got to know Megan before he died. "Dad knew I loved Megan. I hope it helped him to know that I had someone special to look after me."
