Iman Remembers Her Late Husband on Her 30th Wedding Anniversary

Iman, a.k.a. Zara Mohamed Abdulmajid, has often shown that true love never dies. Despite losing her husband to a disease, she still commemorates her beloved on their anniversary.

Iman, professionally a supermodel, entrepreneur, and actress, would rather call herself married to her partner than a widower. 

Let's take a closer look at the love that the supermodel cherishes.

Iman's Husband

The Somali supermodel was married to an English musician and actor, David Bowie. She met her husband, David, in 1990 on a blind date set by their mutual friend. 

According to her, David fell in love with her at first sight; however, she grew to love him after some time.

On June 6, 1992, in Florence, Italy, the pair exchanged wedding vows after dating for more than a year.

The couple welcomed their baby girl, Alexandria Zahra Jones, in 2000.

The actress and her husband celebrated their anniversary together for twenty-three years until David passed away at the age of 69 in 2016 from liver cancer.

The news of David's death was confirmed by his Facebook page and revealed that the artist had been battling cancer for more than 18 months.

Even though the couple had been together for a short time, their PDA moments in public events are still memorable. 

It was surely hard for her to go through the loss of the love of her life, but she revealed that she was focused on taking care of her daughter, who was very young to lose a father.

Following their grief, her daughter once asked her if she would ever remarry, to which she responded that she still feels married to David. She said,

"Someone a few years ago referred to David as my late husband and I said: 'No, he's not my late husband. He's my husband."

Despite David's absence, the actress recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary by herself.

She mentioned that she had a schedule she had been sticking to for a while. She first and foremost gets up about 5:30 or 6 a.m. to begin her incredible day.

Since her family is still asleep and her office doors are still locked in the early morning, she admitted it is her favorite time of day.

She wakes and enjoys a warm glass of lemon water before lying down for 20 to 30 minutes to relax. She then spends some time with her family and enjoys breakfast with them.
