Duncan Jones – David Bowie’s Son

Duncan Jones

David Bowie was married for 11 years to ex-wife Angela Bowie, who is currently starring on Celebrity Big Brother. For more information on Angie, click here. Angela and David divorced in 1980, but during their marriage, Angela gave birth to son Duncan Jones, who they nicknamed Zowie and also Joey. Supermodel Iman is Jones' longtime step-mother and is mother to two daughters, one of whom is Duncan's half-sister. Duncan Jones is the half-brother of Alexandria "Lexi" Jones (born 2000) from his dad's second marriage to Iman, and the half-brother of Stacia Larranna Celeste Lipka (born 1980) from his mom's relationship with musician Drew Blood. His step-sister is Zulekha Haywood, the daughter of Iman from her marriage to Spencer Haywood. Duncan Jones is currently a filmmaker and is actually the director of the upcoming 2016 film adaptation of Warcraft. He was born in Bromley, London and his birth prompted his dad to write the song "Kooks." Upon his father's death, Duncan posted the following heartbreaking message on Twitter, along with a baby photo of himself with his dad: Very sorry and sad to say it's true. I'll be offline for a while. Love to all.


Duncan Jones grew up in England and when his parents divorced, David Bowie was given custody of his 9-year-old son. At age 14, he enrolled in the Scottish boarding school Gordonstoun. At the time, Duncan was called Zowie and he would visit his mother when he had vacations from school. In his preteens, Duncan Jones went by Joey and Joe, but reverted back to his original name when he turned 18 years old, according to the NY Times . He also served as the best man at his father's wedding to supermodel Iman. Jones, himself, got married to photographer Rodene Ronquillo in November 2012, which is the same day that Ronquillo was diagnosed with breast cancer. Fortunately, it was an early diagnosis.
