So What’s David Bowie’s Talented Teenage Daughter Been Up To?
Published on May 6, 2019
The late rock music legend David Bowie and his supermodel wife Iman had a truly charmed life together. Above all, there is no doubt that the best part of their marriage was their beautiful daughter Alexandria Zahra “Lexi” Jones. Lexi was born in 2000, and though most of her childhood was left out of the limelight, she is making her own way in the world as an adult. This is what we know about the secret life of Bowie’s incredibly creative and talented daughter.
Her Mother Said She Was A Miracle
Iman and Bowie both had children from previous marriages before they married in 1992. However, having a child of their own was much more difficult since Iman was in her mid-40s and Bowie in his 50s when Lexi was conceived. Iman said Lexi was truly a miracle for them both: “People talk about the miracle of birth.. [but it is really] the miracle of conception. I did IVF, but nothing happened. So I began to think of adoption, and then I got pregnant. It was definitely a miracle.” She said that after Lexi was born, her and David’s lives were “enriched beyond belief.”
She Is A Budding Artist Just Like Her Dad
It’s no surprise that Lexi pursued artistic talents, just like her multi-talented father. She currently has an Instagram page dedicated to her artwork called @lexijart and her prowess is evident. She has a mix of cartoonish drawings, picturesque landscape paintings, and artwork she has put on her own clothing. If her father were alive to see her progress, he would be undoubtedly proud.
Lexi Dedicated Permanent Art To Remember Her Father
In 2016, the world lost David Bowie after his 18-month battle with cancer. Following his passing, Lexi got a forearm tattoo in the pattern of a crescent moon with the words “Daddy xx,” and “1947 – 2016” in the center.
Fans believe the moon has to do with a beautiful anecdote that David shared in an interview on Conan O’Brien: “We have [a terrace] and we were out the other day. It was still light but you could see a half moon. [Lexi] looked up and saw it — it was the first time she had seen the moon… ‘Moon! Moon!’ she said, and then she started crying, and then she started laughing, and then she dragged me into her room and we had to get all the books that had a moon in them, and then take them outside and hold them up to the sky.”
