Big news for the daughter of actors Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger. Ireland Baldwin announced on her Twitter account March 6 that she was becoming a model, after signing with a management company and the IMG Modeling Agency, according to the New York Daily News.
“Officially working for @TwoManagement and @IMGModels! I’m blessed, happy, and ready to WEEEEERK,” she wrote on her profile, though the tweet was later deleted. Ireland, at 17 years old, is following in Basinger’s footsteps. Kim signed on to become a Ford model at age 16, before eventually moving into films.
The 6’2″ Ireland joining IMG is a big step for her, as the agency has been home to some of modeling’s biggest names, including Kate Moss and Tyra Banks. She is also at an exciting point in her personal life, as she will have a new little sister soon. Her father, Baldwin, has a little girl on the way with his wife, Hilaria Thomas.
