Jones took to Twitter on Friday to announce that his son arrived several weeks earlier on July 10, exactly six months after Bowie died.

"Stenton David Jones. Born July 10th, exactly six months after his grandad made room for him," he wrote, along with a silly drawing. "Love you both so."

In May, ET caught up with Jones ahead of the release of his film, Warcraft, where he couldn't help but gush about baby Stenton's upcoming arrival. "I'm so excited," he said. 

The 45-year-old director also opened up about his late father, who died in January after battling cancer. 

"He was just excited for me to be branching out and trying out different things," Jones said of his dad. "[My dad] taught me a lot of things, but one of them was to be brave and to go with what feels right."
