Rock star David Bowie and his supermodel wife Iman have revealed that they are expecting their first child in August of this year. The couple, who were married in a glamorous ceremony in Florence, Italy on June 6th 1992, are absolutely thrilled at the news.
David spoke for both of them when he said "it's been a long and patient wait for our baby but both Iman and I wanted the circumstances to be absolutely right and didn't want to find ourselves working flat out during the first couple of years of the baby's life. This is a wonderful time in both of our lives".
Both David and Iman Bowie have busy careers, but will be taking time out to ensure that everything is ready for their new arrival. Although Mr. Bowie will perform this summer at a couple of shows, plans for touring for the next couple of years have been put on hold for the moment.
The happy couple were introduced through a mutual friend in Los Angeles and married after a very conventional courtship, both have children from previous marriages. David's son Duncan and Iman's daughter Zulekha are sharing in the excitement and are both equally excited to have a new addition to the family.
David and Iman are not worried whether the child is a boy or a girl, they are just hoping to have a happy healthy child! The couple, who have homes in New York and Bermuda, will be putting everything else on the backburner whilst they concentrate on this long awaited and happy moment!
