David Bowie and Iman's daughter Lexi Jones is showing all the love for her supermodel mom on social media.

The 20-year-old daughter of the late legendary musician shared an "appreciation" post for her mother, 65, on Thursday, writing a sweet tribute alongside an adorable throwback photo of herself and Iman lovingly embracing.

"Appreciation to my mutha. Love you to bits馃А," Jones captioned the Instagram #TBT of Iman, who was married to the music icon from 1992 until he died of liver cancer in 2016.

Last year around this time, Jones gave Iman another sweet shoutout on Instagram for Mother's Day when they celebrated the holiday apart due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

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鈥攌 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."
