London, Feb 4: Robin Gibb's son RJ has announced that he is expecting his first child with girlfriend Megan Golub.
Despite her happiness at the news, Gibb's widow Dwina has spoken out about her sadness that the Bee Gees star is not here to share the news or meet his grandchild.
"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," the Daily Mail quoted her as telling Hello! magazine.
The singer, who died in May 2012 after suffering form kidney and liver failure, gave birth to son Robin-John in 1983 and married Dwina two years later in 1985.
RJ said that now that he is about to become a father himself, his sadness has made way for a sense of happiness he could have never imagined.
He added that Gibb loved children and the idea of having grandchildren.
He would have been over the moon to see his first grandchild, he said. (ANI)
