LOS ANGELES, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Former supermodel Christie Brinkley shared a unique anecdote claiming she helped late singer David Bowie and his wife, fellow model Iman, get pregnant.

Brinkley, 61, shared a promotional photo of Bowie and his family Tuesday, using the opportunity to tell the story of how she may have helped the couple conceive. The couple's daughter, Alexandria, is now 15 years old.

"Iman always told the story in such a charming way," Brinkley began. "[She said] 'It took two blondes to get me pregnant David Bowie and Christie Brinkley!""

"Iman explained it to me, 'in Somalia they say if you are having trouble getting pregnant you must hold a baby all day" so I handed her my baby, Sailor, and she held her all day long ...and sure enough, it worked!"

"After 7 years trying without luck," Brinkely continued, "Iman got pregnant!...I always felt a sweet connection to this stunningly gorgeous and creative couple."

The Timeless Beauty author expressed her deep sympathies to Iman and her daughter after news of David Bowie's death spread. The British musician and entertainment icon died from liver cancer at 60.

Iman always told the story in such a charming way... "It took two blondes to get me pregnant David Bowie and Christie Brinkley!" "You see..." Iman explained to me, "in Somalia they say if you are having trouble getting pregnant you must hold a baby all day" so I handed her my baby, Sailor, and she held her all day long ...and sure enough, it worked! After 7 years trying without luck... Iman got pregnant! So beyond her great beauty and business savvy, and beyond Bowie's music and art, I always felt a sweet connection to this stunningly gorgeous and creative couple. Today my heart aches For Iman, and Alexandria for their untimely and unbearable loss. My deepest sympathy @the_real_iman (beautiful photo maybe from cover shoot for #hellomagazine @hellomagus )
