Wow! See Alec Baldwin’s Gorgeous Daughter, Ireland, All Grown Up


It's been a rocky road for Alec Baldwin and his daughter Ireland Baldwin, but from the looks of their embrace in NYC on Wednesday, you'd never know it.

The father-daughter pair were all smiles as they hit the streets of NYC's Meatpacking District, arm-in-arm, while dressed for the winter weather.

But things weren't always so sunshine and smile-filled for the actor, 53, and his daughter with ex-wife Kim Basinger.

In 2007, while in the midst of a nasty divorce with Basinger, Baldwin left a voice mail for Ireland, then 11-years-old, telling her "You are a rude, thoughtless little pig. You don't have the brains or the decency as a human being. I don't give a damn that you're 12-years-old or 11-years-old, or a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn't care about what you do."

Baldwin's behavior caused a court to ban him from seeing Ireland while Basinger, 58, was granted primary custody, with the actor retaining visitation rights.

In September, Baldwin came to his 16-year-old daughter's defense when a tweet she sent out around Jay-Z and Kanye West's hit song, "N***** in Paris" caused her followers to accuse her of being a racist.

"Anyone who thinks that quoting the title of that song is racist is a disgrace to the human race," Baldwin tweeted.
