She became a step-mother to his son Duncan Jones who Bowie shared with his first wife Angie.

Iman was married to the superstar singer until his shock death from cancer in 2016.

She previously revealed how she did not want Lexi to follow her into modelling or becoming a superstar child of a famous couple, like many of her peers.

In a 2018 interview with Net A Porter, Iman, 64, said: ‘Every agency, every designer, called me to say: “If she wants to, we’d love for her to model for us.”

‘I said: “No, she doesn’t.” I know why they wanted to her to model – it’s because she is David Bowie’s daughter.

‘She says I am overprotective. But I told her, this can all wait, it isn’t going anywhere. Have a life that is private while you can, because one day soon it is going to be public, so enjoy this.’ 

Iman and Lexi remain very close and back in May, Lexi shared an emotional post after revealing she hadn’t seen her mum for six months.

Lexi was stuck in Los Angeles during the coronavirus pandemic while her supermodel mother was at her home in New York.

In a Mother’s Day post, Bowie’s youngest child appealed to others to follow the lockdown guidelines so she could see her family again soon.

‘Everyone please stay inside I haven’t seen my mom for 6 months because we live on opposite coasts and it is very difficult to leave ny right now but I’m a child and I miss her dearly so pls be party poopers this one time so it doesn’t take 2 f***ing years to see her again thank you!’ she wrote.

The two were later reunited in New York.
