On January 10, we commemorate David Bowie who passed away two years ago. To mark this day, the late star's wife recalled their amazing love story and paid a touching tribute to the singer.

Remembering her spouse.

Iman, the 62-year-old supermodel, published six photographs in two posts on her social media to recall her romance with the legend, who would have turned 71 on January 8.

The first post included snaps of two tattoos dedicated to David, one of his daughter’s forearm and another of Iman’s ankle.

First dates

He was a genius, a Starman, a dream of many fans. But for the supermodel Iman, the singer was first and foremost a loving husband and a man who definitely knew how to make every moment of their life joyful.

Bowie always described his romance with his beloved as love at first sight. He recalled:

My attraction to her was immediate and all-encompassing. I couldn't sleep for the excitement of our first date.


As for Iman, the Somali model was not at first delighted with the attention of the famous Englishman. She didn’t want to date a rock star, believing that only crazy people do that. But Iman could not resist Bowie’s feelings.


Marriage and further life

They tied the knot in 1992 and welcomed their kid in 2000. Star spouses were called the most beautiful and exotic pair in the world of music and fashion. They weren't really vocal about the details of their marriage, and maybe this is the key to their long-lasting and happy partnership.

Before meeting each other, they both went through not very successful relationships, which is why they valued and cherished their family.


Life without husband

Iman confesses that her love is immortal and that their love story will never end.
