Always and forever. Iman shared a sweet Instagram message this week on the date of her 24th wedding anniversary with late husband, David Bowie.

The supermodel, 60, shared a black-and-white throwback snapshot with the legendary musician, who passed away in January at age 69. Superimposed on the photo was the line: “The best thing about me is you.”

Iman then added a separate caption of her own, commemorating their marriage. “June 6th….24th wedding anniversary,” she wrote on Monday, June 6, alongside the pic. “#foreverlove.”

The couple married in Italy in 1992, and welcomed their daughter, Alexandria, in 2000. Bowie heartbreakingly passed away earlier this year after privately battling cancer.

In a rare interview taped prior to Bowie’s death, Iman opened up to Oprah: Where Are They Now? about the secret to her long-lasting Hollywood marriage.

“We both understand the difference between the person and the persona,” she shared. “When we are home, we are just Iman and David. We’re not anybody else.”

She went on to dish more insight about their love story. ”You have to be at the right time of your life that you’re ready for an everlasting relationship, that it becomes a first priority in your life,” the modeling icon revealed. “If your career is important to you, don’t get married and have children, because something will give. I know as women we want to be able to have it all, but we can’t have it all at the same time. So, make your priority of what you want at that time.”
