In a previous interview, Iman revealed the secret to her 23-year-long happy marriage with David. “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 your life,” she said. "If your career is important to you, don’t get married and have children, because something will give. I know we 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."
