IMAN has revealed that she has Christie Brinkley to thank for the birth of her second child. The model – who has one daughter with husband David Bowie, Alexandria, born in 2000; as well as elder daughter Zulekha, born in 1978 – said that she credits her fellow supermodel with conceiving her younger daughter when she was 45.
“We were at this shoot for American Vogue,” Iman told Fern Mallis at the 92nd Street Y,Page Six reported. “Christie walked in. She had her baby. So, I said, ‘There is an African proverb that says that if you carry another woman’s child for a day, you’ll get pregnant.’ And she said, ‘Here!’ So, I say it took two blondes to get me pregnant: Christie and David. It is a miracle.”
In her characteristic no-holds-barred style, she also revealed that her first meeting with designer Halston was typically straightforward.
“He always had his hand in one pocket and a cigarette in the other,” she said of the famed Seventies NY designer, “and he says, ‘Darling, can you walk?’ I said, ‘How the fuck do you think I got here?”
