Alexandria ‘Lexi’ Zahra Jones – David Bowie’s Daughter

Alexandria “Lexi” Zahra Jones

Alexandria “Lexi” Zahra Jones is the daughter of the late David Bowie and his supermodel wife Iman. She was born in August 2000 and has two siblings — half-brother Duncan Jones, from Bowie’s marriage to Angela Bowie, and half-sister Zulekha Haywood, the daughter of Iman from her marriage to Spencer Haywood.

Alexandria was born over two decades younger than Zulekha Haywood and was considered Iman and Bowie’s miracle baby. Iman had tried IVF to get pregnant, but it was unsuccessful. The couple were considering adoption when they found out Iman was expecting a child.

Alexandra Jones keeps a pretty private life, away from the paparazzi as she is only a teenager. Bowie and Iman first introduced their daughter publicly to the world via a photo shoot with Hello! Magazine. The shoot took place in the couple’s New York apartment, overlooking Central Park. Iman told Hello! that the birth of their daughter brought the couple even closer, explaining that:

We’ve always been very close, but if it’s possible we’ve been drawn even closer. There’s a joy or a contentment that’s almost palpable to both of us. Overnight, our lives have been enriched beyond belief.

In 2013, when Bowie was possibly going on tour, Iman said that she couldn’t accompany him because their daughter had school. Iman told Daily Mail:

We have a 12-year-old in school, so we are stuck, we can’t travel. Our schedule is around her, so I don’t know. We’ll have to go visit him, but we won’t be on tour with him because she’s in school.

They were just like regular parents … who just happened to be global icons.

Below are some more photos of Bowie’s daughter as a baby and growing up.

If children have the same mother or same father even tho a different father/mother from their siblings then why not just say their brothers sisters instead off all the half this or that .. To me saying half or step brother /sister must make children not part of the’ family

I understand half… It just is what it is… It’s not meant to be offensive… It would be misleading to not clarify that they only share one parent. But to call her a step sister is flat out incorrect.

apocalypsism

Tends to be mostly user errors. If you truly know English you’re not going to want for words.

I agree totally as I have other siblings from my Mother and my Father and we have always been just Brothers and Sisters. Not half or step anything! I love them all dearly :-)

I think it is up to circumstances, and each individual to refer to siblings what they prefer. Seriously, let’s us not dictate! I call my late father, and stepmother’s son stepbrother, it is how I see it, and how I feel. You call your stepsiblings brothers and sisters, and it is none of mu business. Live, and let live!

My father has other children and I only consider them to be half sibling and I really don’t want to consider them at all. It is different for all types of people. Half is half and whole is whole. It makes me sick that I have to even be bothered with them. It just what it is. I’m glad that you have a good relationship with your half siblings.

Why dont you like your half siblings? If its cause yall have different mothers you are indeed a idiot. because they have some of the same Dna in they veins as you do. 2. You dont choose to be born nor who your parents is. I have two brothers on mother side and two sisters on my father side. Both of my brothers have the same mother and father and we only share mothers . and my sisters have the same mother and father and we only have the same father
But we dont say half or whole just brother and sister or big Brother big sister little sister. The word half is unnecessary unless you just have tell somebody that you only share one parent not both which will rarely happen. It only Highlights unneed differents and division amount kids making childern seem less related to the rest of the kids. And using step sister is just stating he or she became sisters or brothers by marriage. And to anther person comment people isnt trying to aviod calling somethig as it is or dictionary correct. it just somethings is just redundant to say like say kids wise. adopted ,half,step,whole sister brother . Why do any one really need to know what type of sister or brother you all are. Ex. When people have a friend they grow up with or really close with and see each other as siblings. They call each other brothers or sister. You dont call them my friend sister or friend brother. And A person who has to use step whole adoped half siblings unnecessarily wants seperation from his or her self and their siblings.

because it is what it is, they’re only half related. everyone needs to get past this emotional sensitivity to calling things what they are. we can’t break down the english language to accommodate every sensitivity known to man.

I truely agree. I have a half brother, but I never say that – he is just my brother. I also have two kids, one is my biological one and the other one has a different biological mom. They are both my kids and I don’t raise them to say half, they are just brothers.

Åh, blir glad då jag läser ditt inlägg, jag håller med dig, klart det är syskon och bara syskon, varför få ett barn att känna sig mindre till hörande i den nya familje konstellationen. Det finns inga halvabarn, alla framkallade i kärlek o med lika rätt till hela syskon😊
