Bowie would have been 71 today (January 8)

David Bowie‘s widow Iman has shared baby photos of the late music icon to mark what would have been the singer’s 71st birthday.

Bowie and model Iman married in 1992. The pair remained together until Bowie’s death in January 2016 at the age of 69.

Earlier today (January 8), Bowie’s son Duncan Jones paid tribute to his father, with Iman also posting online to mark the milestone.


Taking to Instagram, Iman shared black and white baby photos of Bowie taken in 1947. She captioned the image with the hashtag #BowieForever. See below.

Meanwhile, an early demo of ‘Let’s Dance’ has also been released to celebrate Bowie’s birthday.

Last August, Iman said that the “outpouring of grief” from the public following her late husband’s death “helped tremendously” in the months after his passing.

Writing for Vogue, Iman said: “The outpouring of grief over David’s passing has helped me tremendously, though sometimes I’ve been at odds with it, too: Universal grieving for your life partner can also keenly deepen your own sense of all that you’ve lost.”


“David gave me the most exciting, touching, and deliriously loving 24 years. Still, it was not enough— shockingly brief,” she continued. “And although I’ll never get used to losing him, David is nonetheless hiding in plain sight.”
