Yesterday on January 10, Alexandria 'Lexi' Zahra Jones, the daughter of David Bowie, shared a wholesome home video to commemorate the anniversary of the music legend's death.

David Bowie passed away seven years ago on January 10, 2016, following a private battle with cancer over the course of 18 months. Two days before his passing (January 8), the musician shared his final album, (Blackstar), on his 69th birthday. 

Taking to Instagram to mark her father's anniversary, Lexi shares heart-warming footage of her as a child playing the keyboard with Bowie at home. 

Alongside the video, the 22-year-old posts an adorable image of her when she was a toddler, dressed in a lion costume and holding a rainbow umbrella, while sat on her father's lap. As a caption, she writes: "7 years ago today. I miss you ❤️".

Lexi's mother/Bowie's widow Iman, who was married to the star from 1992, shared a serene monochrome image of the pair on social media alongside the line: “For a couple of moments in the immensity of time, we were one", with the hashtags: "#EternalLove #bowieforever".
