Iman, a Somali supermodel, broke the news in an Instagram post on Friday, uploading a group photo of herself; her mother, Marian Abdulmajid; her father and Bowie.
“Saddened by death of my mom Maryan Baadi,” the 60-year-old wrote alongside the photo. “May Allah grant her the highest jennah. I beg that you respect my family’s privacy during our time of grief #ripmaryanbaadi.”
Nearly a month after Bowie’s death, Iman broke her silence in a simple Instagram message.
“Love & Gratitude Iman,” the message read.
In the months since her husband’s death, Iman has kept a low profile, only posting a series of inspirational messages on her Instagram account.
