The age difference between her two daughters — 30-year-old Zulekha and 8-year-old Alexandria ‘Lexi’ Zahra Jones — is stark, and former supermodel Iman, 53, doesn’t like reporters to do the math! “God, you’re making me sound even older than I am,” she tells PARADE. “People talk about the miracle of birth. No. There’s the miracle of conception.” She elaborates,
Motherhood the second time around has been a different experience entirely, and Iman says that she’s far more patient as a result. “I was at the height of my career when I had my first child, and I took her with me around the world,” she notes. “Then I had to root her in school; It was difficult to leave her behind.”
With the glitz and glamour of her own career largely behind her, Iman says that she’s content to tackle more mundane pursuits. “Lexi’s class has built a kind of diorama of a Native American village for all us moms to admire,” she laughs. “Ah, my glamorous life.”
Zulekha is Iman’s daughter with ex-husband Spencer Haywood.
