Since she’s living in New York City, the fashion icon’s daughter has been unable to travel to see her mom in months due to coronavirus.
The 19-year-old posted a Mother’s Day tribute to her supermodel mom, 64, where she said that since they live on opposite sides of the country, she’s been unable to leave to visit due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

One thing she hasn’t gotten used to is fans sharing their condolences. On April 24 the model paid tribute to her late husband David on what would have been their anniversary
“People take pictures of me in the street, and say (touching my arm), ‘I am so sorry for your loss,’” she told fashion site Porter Edit. “I’m like, don’t touch me. You just took pictures of me, how can you be sorry?”
Iman noted that her youngest Alexandria, known as Lexi, has received many modeling offers after seeing a recent photo on Instagram.
“Every agency, every designer, called me to say, ‘If she wants to, we’d love for her to model for us,'” Iman told Porter Edit, adding that she denied the requests. “I know why they wanted to her to model — it’s because she is David Bowie’s daughter.”
recently Duncan Jones, the singer’s film director son, revealed on Twitter that Bowie had been ‘digging into his family tree’ before his death in 2016.His grandmother is buried in Hyde Park Cemetery and his second cousin, Shirley Rust, wife of late TV weatherman Bob Rust, has previously spoken of her connections to the Ziggy Stardust icon.
Bowie’s father, Haywood Stenton Jones, more commonly known as John, was born at 41 St Sepulchre Gate in the town centre in 1912. His birthplace is where the Caffe Nero coffee shop is now situated.
At that time, it was the Jubilee Boot and Shoe Company, run by the singer’s grandad.
“He lived and went to school here. “They lived at Morley Road and Copley Road before he moved down to London to find fame and fortune and where he eventually settled with his wife and where they had David in 1947.”
After moving to the capital, Mr Jones lost touch with his Doncaster roots – although he did return to the town in the 1960s to open a Barnardo’s children’s home – he worked for the charity as a publicity officer during his later years.
