When your parents are two of the most beautiful people to walk the earth – rock superstar David Bowie and stunning Somali supermodel Iman, you’re pretty much guaranteed to be absolutely stunning and on her 17th birthday, Lexi Jones does not disappoint! The only child born to David and Iman (who both have children from previous relationships), Lexi’s been pretty shielded from the fame that comes with being the child of two icons – so we haven’t had the chance to watch her grow up in the public eye.
However, the ultra classy photo Iman snapped of Lexi in honor of her 17th birthday and shared to Instagram yesterday confirms what we’ve known for years – she’s absolutely gorgeous.
David Bowie’s estate also marked the occasion, posting a photo to Instagram as well earlier this week that shows a photo of Lexi, taken last year on her 16th birthday, beside a photo of David at 17.
Repost from @davidbowie @TopRankRepost #TopRankRepost HAPPY 17th BIRTHDAY TO LEXI “You’re only seventeen…” We’re sure you will all want to join us in wishing many happy returns of the day to Alexandria Zahra Jones on her 17th birthday. (http://smarturl.it/Lexi17FB) Lexi is 16 in this picture, which was posted by her mother, Iman, last year. The colour pic (by DEZO HOFFMANN) is of her father, Davie Jones, in 1964, an ambitious 17-year-old King Bee himself with a very bright future ahead of him. Happy Birthday Lexi, here’s wishing you a similarly bright future with love ‘n stuff from everybody here. FOOTNOTE: Congratulations are also due to Iman on becoming a grandmother, with the arrival of baby Lavinia Rose Young to Iman’s daughter Zulekha and her husband Jason. #HappyBirthdayLexi #Lexi17 #LexiLove #NanaLove
Time flies – we still remember seeing baby Lexi on the covers of magazines just days after she was born and marveling at how absolutely beautiful she was. Happy birthday, Lexi – you’ve turned into a lovely young woman and we know that your dad is beyond proud of who you are and who you will become!
