David Bowie's model wife Iman had to resort to mystical African fertility rituals to conceive the couple's only child.

The pair had two attempts at In-Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) before Somalian Iman remembered an African tradition that claims holding a baby for a day boosts a woman's chances of becoming pregnant.

Model pal Christie Brinkley also stepped in - and a month later Iman was pregnant with ALEXANDRIA ZAHRA, now three.

She says, "The joke is, it took two blondes to get me pregnant."
