In his final days, David Bowie created a very precious memory with his son Duncan Jones. This week the Warcraft director opened up about his father's passing and spoke about a special moment that they shared together shortly before David's death.
Duncan, who is expecting his first child next month with photographer wife Rodene Ronquillo, told E! News that it was his father who was given the honour of revealing the baby's gender as the family got together over the Christmas holidays.

"When we found out what the gender of our baby was going to be, we were able to get the doctor to write it on a card without us seeing it," he said. "Then I got to spend Christmas with my dad and he actually told us what the gender was going to be."
Duncan, 44, revealed his baby news on Twitter on the one month anniversary of David's passing. Alongside a hand drawn picture, the filmmaker wrote: "1 month since dad died today. Made this card for him at Christmas. Due in June. Circle of life. Love you, granddad."

David, who was also father to 15-year-old Alexandria with wife Iman, died on January 10 after losing his 18-month battle to liver cancer. Duncan told E! News, "We found the time to do all of the family stuff that we wanted to do, got a chance to spend some time together, have our talks and say our goodbyes and things like that."
Duncan is the only child from David's 10-year marriage to wife Angie. He has been estranged from his mother for nearly 30 years. It was Duncan who confirmed that his 69-year-old father had passed away.
"Very sorry and sad to say it's true," he tweeted. "I'll be offline for a while. Love to all." The post was accompanied by photograph of the Life on Mars singer with his baby son
