David Bowie's wife of 24 yearsIman, has emerged for the first time since her husband's death. The supermodel looked solemn in jeans, a black coat and sunglasses as she walked her dog in New York City. 

A source tells E! News, "Iman is doing well. She has been spending lots of time with her daughter and is keeping busy."

The world is still mourning the loss of the legendary singer, who died on Jan. 10, but to honor him shortly after his passing, Iman shared touching photos and quotes on her Instagram. She also has taken notice of fans' tributes, as our source also tells us she is "very touched by all the support from friends, family and fans."

Iman and David married April 24, 1992, and had a daughter together, Alexandria Zahra Jones, 15. Iman is also stepmom to David's son, Duncan Jones. Iman's social media pages are flooded with birthday tributes to her late husband, who celebrated his 69th birthday two days before passing away. Married for more than 20 years, both Iman and the rock star admit that they both fell very hard for each other. For the "Space Oddity" singer, it was love at first sight; however, for Iman, it was a slightly different story.

When asked about their relationship one time, David told reporters he "was naming the children the first night we met." Iman took a little longer to get the butterflies.

"I was not ready for a relationship," she told The Guardian in 2013. Definitely I didn't want to get into a relationship with somebody like him. But as I always said: I fell in love with David Jones. I did not fall in love with David Bowie. Bowie is just a persona. He's a singer, an entertainer. David Jones is a man I met."

Iman and the "Heroes" crooner were famously private about their marriage, but over the years the supermodel-turned-philanthropist would share tiny nuggets about her happy life with him. "My father taught me how to be a parent and gave me a positive connection with men because he is a gentlemen," she told Harper's Bazaar in 2010. "And that's what attracted me to David. He is a gentle soul."

He would also gush about his wife, saying, "You would think that a rock star being married to a supermodel would be one of the greatest things in the world," he said. "It is."

Lady Gaga will be performing a tribute to the late Bowie at this year's Grammy Awards, which won't open the show but will last six or seven minutes and will cover "at least three or four" of his songs, Grammys Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich told The New York Times.

He added that it "is going to be a true homage to who David was, particularly musically, but not ignoring his influence on fashion and pop culture in a broader way."
