The film director, who directed Source Code and Warcraft Beginning, lost his famous dad to cancer earlier this year (January 10) has paid tribute by naming his son after him.

Duncan tweeted: "Stenton David Jones. Born July 10th, exactly six months after his grandad made room for him. Love you both so (sic)."

Stenton comes from the Starman’s own father’s name, Haywood Stenton Jones.

He also paid tribute to his wife: "All my love and awe to the incredible @rodeneronquillo who made a human being in her belly. Warrior woman & every day, my hero"

Duncan told fans that he was expecting a child just a mere month after his father passed. He announced the bittersweet news with an emotional note posted to Twitter:

"1 month since dad died today. Made this card for him at Christmas. Due in June. Circle of life. Love you, granddad."

We're sure David would be so, so proud!

Congratulations to the lovely couple.
