Jones wrote alongside a photo of her young self next to Iman.
Jones also posted another throwback photo of herself as a young girl kissing her mom on the lips. "Happy mama day to my mommy and to all the mommys💕," the captioned the Mother's Day tribute.
In August 2020, Iman shared snaps of Jones on Instagram in honor of her birthday writing, "Happy Birthday, my heart, my pride, my love, my angel, my Lexi! I'm proud to call myself your mommy."
While Jones started getting offered opportunities to follow in her mom's modeling footsteps when she turned 18, Iman has urged her daughter to embrace a private life for as long as she can.
"She says I am overprotective," Iman said in an interview with Porter in 2018. "But I told her, this can all wait, it isn't going anywhere. Have a life that is private while you can, because one day soon it is going to be public, so enjoy this."

At the moment, Jones appears to be inspired by her father's profession. In February, she shared a song she made on Instagram, even though she was "absolutely terrified to post" it.
"I keep going back and forth between hating it and liking it but f—k it," she wrote in the caption. "So here's a snippet of an untitled, unfinished, very drunken rough take of a song I'm proud of on a good day."
