Late legend David Bowie and his supermodel wife Iman shared a beautiful union for the last 23 years. Having mutual appreciation and respect for each other, Bowie and Iman found love and partnership for over two decades, at a time when celebrity marriages lasted several weeks or even days. They welcomed their first child together, Alexandria Zahra Jones, in 2000.
The stunning couple met at a party in 1990 and as Iman shared in an interview for the Independent, for him it was love at first sight while she initially was not that convinced. “For him [it was overwhelming],” Iman told the Independent in 2014. “I was not ready for a relationship. Definitely, I didn’t want to get into a relationship with somebody like him. But as I always said: I fell in love with David Jones. I did not fall in love with David Bowie. Bowie is just a persona. He’s a singer, an entertainer. David Jones is a man I met.” The rest is history.
