Ireland Baldwin Signs With Modeling Agency, Says She Feels "Blessed, Happy"
Things are definitely looking up for lanky Ireland Baldwin these days! The 6'2" daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Bassinger has officially signed with IMG Models and Two Management, she shared with fans on Twitter earlier this week.
"Officially working for @TwoManagement and @IMGmodels!" the 17-year-old blonde beauty tweeted on Tuesday, March 5. "I'm blessed, happy, and ready to WEEEEERK."
Baldwin will be joining the likes of such household names as Kate Moss, Tyra Banks, and Chanel Iman in signing with the agencies. Her own mother, 59-year-old Basinger, signed with the Ford modeling agency at age 16.
In December, the mother-daughter duo enjoyed some quality time together in Hawaii, and Baldwin revealed just how much she admired her mother.
"Happy birthday to the most beautiful woman in the entire world," she captioned a gorgeous vintage photo of the actress. "You are the most influential and inspirational figure in my life, and I've always looked up to you and no one else."
"Mom, you still look like you're 17 and it's kind of embarrassing standing next to you," she continued. "Hopefully someday I will adopt your cheekbones and your overall beauty…Inside and out."
Baldwin will soon have a little mini-me half-sister to mentor herself -- dad Alec and his new wife Hilaria announced earlier this week that they are expecting a baby girl.
"Alec and I are overjoyed that we are going to be welcoming a little girl into our lives," the 28-year-old yoga instructor told Extra on Thursday.
