Days after David Bowie's tragic death, the singer's friend Christie Brinkley has shared a sweet story about how she previously helped David and his wife, Iman, have a baby.
“Iman always told the story in such a charming way,” the 61-year-old supermodel began her caption of a throwback photo of David and Iman cradling their newborn daughter, Alexandria, on Instagram. “‘It took two blondes to get me pregnant, David Bowie and Christie Brinkley!’"

"'You see,’ Iman explained to me, 'In Somalia they say if you are having trouble getting pregnant you must hold a baby all day,' so I handed her my baby, Sailor, and she held her all day long," Christie continued.

"And sure enough, it worked! After seven years trying without luck... Iman got pregnant! So beyond her great beauty and business savvy, and beyond [David]'s music and art, I always felt a sweet connection to this stunningly gorgeous and creative couple. Today my heart aches for Iman and Alexandria for their untimely and unbearable loss," she wrote.

Iman, 60, and David — who passed away at age 69 on Sunday, Jan. 10 after an 18-month battle with liver cancer — welcomed Alexandria, their only child together, in August 2000. David also has a 44-year-old son, Duncan, from his first marriage to Angie Bowie. Iman — who married the "Space Oddity" singer in April 1992 — similarly has a 37-year-old son, Zulekha, with her first husband, Spencer Haywood.
