Wow! Iman and the late David Bowie‘s daughter, Alexandria, has been mostly kept out of her famous parents’ spotlight in recent years. But, on Thursday, Aug. 17, Iman took to Instagram to share a super-rare photo of the gorgeous 17-year-old — and we can’t get over how grown up Lexi looks in the new pic!
“The Queen of my heart — Lexi Jones at 17 years old! #SelfPortrait #LexiLove,” the 62-year-old supermodel captioned the snapshot. Many of Iman’s 454,000 followers were quick to point out just how beautiful Lexi looks today. “With two gorgeous parents, how could she not be stunning? I bet her heart is even more beautiful, just like her mom and angel dad’s,” one person wrote with another adding, “She is so pretty!”
Iman and David welcomed Lexi, their only child together, in August 2000. The star is additionally a mother to a 39-year-old daughter, Zulekha Haywood, with her ex-husband Spencer Haywood. David — who tragically died at age 69 in January 2016 from liver cancer — also has an older son, Duncan Jones, 46, from his first marriage to Angie Bowie.
During a 2000 interview with Hello! magazine, the late “Space Oddity” singer gushed about first meeting Iman back in 1990 at an exclusive Hollywood dinner party. “My attraction to her was immediate and all-encompassing. I couldn’t sleep for the excitement of our first date. That she would be my wife, in my head, was a done deal. I’d never gone after anything in my life with such passion… I just knew she was the one,” he said at the time.
Iman similarly opened up about dating the British music icon during a 2011 sit-down with [The Cut](http://nymag.com/thecut/2011/02/imanknewdavidbowiewasthe.html)_ — and revealed she knew he was the one just two weeks after they became an item. “I was coming from Paris and I got to LA at the airport. The doors open to the plane and I come out and I see all these people taking a picture of somebody… He was standing there, flowers in hand, no security. That was when I knew he was a keeper.”
