Instead of a longer post, Lexi, who is also the daughter of model Iman, simply wrote, “Happy Birthday XX”.

Iman also paid tribute to Bowie on her birthday, sharing a black and white photo of the couple as they kissed her on the forehead.

Next to the photo, she wrote: “Kisses on the forehead are kisses for the soul. EternalLove BowieForever ‘.

Lexi is an aspiring artist based in California and sells her work on Depop for up to $ 250.

She is the child of the Space Oddity hitmaker and Somali model, who first met in 1990 at a dinner party.

After her birth, she was said to have helped her father put his workaholic attitude “into perspective” and empower him to stay healthy after his first heart attack.

David also had a son, Duncan Jones, from a previous marriage while Imran shares his daughter Zulekha Haywood with an old love.

It has been five years since David shockingly passed away at the age of 69 on January 10, 2016, after an 18-month battle with cancer.

Iman married the English rocker in a romantic ceremony in Lausanne, Switzerland, in April 1992, which was later made official in a wedding in Florence in June.

She previously revealed that she didn’t want Lexi to follow her into modeling or become a child superstar of a famous couple, like many of her peers.

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

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

“She says I’m overprotective. But I told him, all this can wait, it’s not going anywhere.

“Have privacy while you can, because someday it will be public, so take advantage of it.”

Iman and Lexi remain very close and back in May, Lexi shared an emotional message after revealing that she had not seen her mother for six months.

Lexi was stranded in Los Angeles during the coronavirus pandemic while her model mother was at her home in New York City.

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

“Everyone please stay indoors I haven’t seen my mom for 6 months because we live on opposite coasts and it’s very hard to leave ny at the moment but I am a child and I miss her a lot, so be partiers this time so it doesn’t take 2 years to see her again thank you! she wrote.

The two were then reunited in New York.
