Although David and Iman had been trying for a while to conceive, like many other couples, it was not happening. Eventually the couple tried IVF but eventually their daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones came into the world after what Iman attributes to an African proverb. One day at a Vogue shoot Iman told Christie Brinkley, who showed up to work with her baby, that it is said in her culture that if you hold a baby for a day you will conceive, and that is when Alexandria came to be. Her youngest is the little sister to Zulehka Haywood, Iman’s daughter with basketball player Spencer Haywood.
