Iman remembers David Bowie on Father's Day

Iman has paid tribute to David Bowie on Father's Day.

The 60-year-old model took to Instagram on Sunday (19.06.16) to share a picture of her late husband - who died in January following a secret cancer battle - cradling their daughter Lexi when she was just a baby.

She captioned the image: "Happy Fathers Day #LexiLove (sic)"

Iman also shared a black and white picture of her younger self with her father.

She wrote: "Happy Fathers Day, daddy! Thank you for being the first gentle man in my life #fathersday (sic)"

Her post comes less than two weeks after she also remembered the 'Space Oddity' hitmaker - who she married in 1992, eight years before their daughter was born - on their 24th wedding anniversary.

On that occasion, she shared a picture of them together and captioned it "June 6th...., 24th wedding anniversary #foreverlove (sic)."

The picture also had the words "The best thing about me is you" written on it.

Iman previously revealed the secret to their long-lasting marriage.

She said: "We both understand the difference between the person and the persona. When we are home, we are just Iman and David. We're not anybody else.

"I think the secret to a lasting marriage is timing, first of all. You have to be at the right time in your life that you're ready for an everlasting relationship, that it becomes first, and a priority in life.

"If your career is important to you, don't get married and have children, because something will give.

"I know as women we want to be able to have it all, but we can't have it all at the same time. So make your priority of what you want at that time. And sometimes you don't even have to get married. Why do you have to get married?"

It has been a difficult year for Iman as just two months after David's death, her mother Marian Abdulmajid also passed away.

Iman took to Twitter after the death and wrote: "May Allah grant her the highest jannah."
