Ireland Baldwin: ‘I work out twice a day’, does yoga, dance & cardio every day

Here are some photos of Ireland Baldwin over the past few days in NYC, where she’s been attending some fashion events and an art show at the MoMA. I’m covering this because you guys seem interested in Ireland, especially now that she’s almost all grown-up (she’s 17, soon to be 18) and she’s just signed with a prestigious modeling agency and her career is just beginning. I think Ireland lives mostly in LA with her mom, and when she’s not in LA, she’s in Hawaii visiting her teenage boyfriend or she’s in New York visiting her father. So how does Ireland feel about her new career path as a model? Pretty good!

After signing with a modeling agency last month, Ireland Baldwin is staying focused on her career. The 17-year-old of Alec Baldwin and Kim Bassinger practiced posing on the red carpet of the New York movie premiere of The Company You Keep on Monday, April 1 and chatted with reporters about who inspires her.

The blonde beauty showed off her pretty pout to cameras at The Museum of Modern Art and styled a navy blazer, skinny jeans, scarf and heels. Ireland has officially signed with IMG Models and Two Managements and tweeted on March 5, “I’m blessed, happy, and ready to work.”

Which famous models will she use as guidance for her career?

“I have a few, one off the top of my head Miranda Kerr,” she told reporters Monday. “I look up to Kate Moss . . . and my mom of course.” Ireland’s mother Basinger, 59, signed with Ford modeling agency at age 16 before becoming a Hollywood star. (She won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 1997 for L.A. Confidential.)

The 6’2″ aspiring model also said she follows a strict workout schedule to keep her in shape. “I work out twice a day,” she said. “I do more of my yoga and my dance in the morning and I do my cardio at night.”

In addition to looking forward to her modeling career, Ireland also says she can’t wait for her dad Alec to have another baby with new wife Hilaria Baldwin. “I am so excited,” she gushed, “finally I’ll have a sibling.”

[From Us Weekly]

Ireland also told People Magazine that her mom is her modeling coach and “My mom’s very happy she can finally give me tips. She’s always there, so she’ll stand in the back and say, ‘Turn your head this way, or do this!’” Well, that answers a question I had about Ireland’s modeling – she’s not going out to shoots all by herself, being thrown into the deep end. Her mom is going with her. That makes me feel a lot better about Ireland’s modeling career. And it must drive Alec Baldwin up the wall.

I would say that it’s crazy that Ireland works out so much, but… she’s 17 years old. She’s got the energy. She probably dances because she loves to dance and then does cardio because why not?

    Big jaw, potato shaped face like a Willis. Never noticed that before.

    • mari says:

      LOL, my thoughts exactly.

      She’s still too healthy looking for a model. Sorry to say, I’m sure she’ll be a stick in no time.

    • MJ says:

      Wow, that’s a bit harsh to say about a 17 year-old! I think she’s gorgeous, and will likely only grow more beautiful as she matures.

      • karmasabiatch! says:

        ^^ MJ, cosign 100%!

        What a pretty girl – why can’t people just leave it at that? Oh, that’s right. We’re supposed to be “bitchy”.

      • Sabrine says:

        WTF!!? There’s no big jaw there. In fact she has a pretty, heart shaped face. I do agree she’s not the stunner her mother was but so what…she’s still a good looking girl.

        I doubt Alec Baldwin is driven up any wall by her mom accompanying her to photo shoots. He’s probably actually glad she’s there to see that a 17 year old is not thrown to the wolves. BTW he’s no crappy dad. He fought for years to be a presence in his daughter’s life.

      • MissM says:

        Agree. She does have a giant head and while she looks healthy for someone her height (6′ 2″!), she’s hardly the stick thin size of most top models, Kate Upton aside. She’ll be a tiny skeleton in no time.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      This girl doesn’t look a thing like Rumor Willis. Rumor’s biggest problem is that her features seem to be too small for her face … they’re kind of squished in the center and it looks weird.

    • cateD says:

      Whenever I see nasty comments like this I think that poster should be brave enough to accompany their comment with their own head and body shots so that we can see who is so brave as to “insult, exult, and all at once, over the wretched”. I’m guessing that Shakespeare would say that you’re the type who “without candle may go dark to bed”. I’m curious, are you the same people who laud Adele and deride “body shaming” where it applies to fat people? There is a double standard going on that I cannot comprehend.

      • Hakura says:

        I agree =\ Why do people have to put effort into finding something negative they can point out? The girl is beautiful, & hasn’t done or said anything to deserve insults. Once she does, fire away. But until then…

      • landy says:

        When a person chooses to make a career out of using their face and/or body to sell things, they really lose the ability to not be judged by others.

        There is no reason to be cruel in comments, but it is perfectly reasonable to say: I don’t find this person attractive and this is why.

  2. dorothy says:

    Finally a mom that supports and monitors a child’s activities instead of trying to make a living off their child. Such a nice change of pace considering other show biz moms like Dina Lohan, Justin Beiber’s mom and Kris Kardashian.

    • MissM says:

      Really? I read that as Kim goes to the shoots and acts like a total stage mom, rather than “Kim is there to protect Ireland.”

    • Hakura says:

      Whichever version (caring mom watching over her) or (stage mom), I just hope she protects her daughter. She was a model herself, & knows the pressures, all the ‘ins & outs’ she’ll encounter.

      I’m just hopeful Kim can make sure to help Ireland stay physically healthy.

  3. smartyparty says:

    When I was her age I practiced stage dance daily, before my tennis match, which would be followed by an at-home dance party with my girlfriends. I would sleep for maybe 4 hours, eat some cereal, get up and run. Then school, dance, tennis all over again. It is amazing what a young and happy body can do. There was not an ounce of fat on me!

    Now I teach preschool so I am still moving by my goodness, nowhere NEAR the energy I had at 17,18.

    • bettyrose says:

      ITA. I wasn’t very athletic at her age, but I was a city kid who walked everywhere (didn’t even have a driver’s license yet). I didn’t look like her but I could eat whatever without worry. She looks perfectly healthy, so I don’t think she has exercise-bulimia or anything.

  4. anneesezz says:

    In these pictures she really doesn’t look that pretty.

    • hoya_chick says:

      I totally agree, which is weird because in her instagram pics I think she is gorgeous.

      Also, I wish I had the time to work out twice day!

      • ZigZagZoey says:

        I agree and I usually think she is gorgeous. Weird!

        Holy shit, she is 6’2″?

      • Sachi says:

        That’s the benefit of “selcas” (self-camera shots), you can choose which angle works best for you when taking a photo and which are the pics you post on the internet. Nobody wants to post a bad pic of themselves, especially unedited ones. 😀

        I think instagram is the opposite of the DSLR cameras/HD cameras that paps and photographers use, in that insta is for making photos look more colorful and ‘softer’.

        She’s a very pretty girl, but in these shots she looks haggard and ‘dull’ compared to the photos in her instagram. IMO she doesn’t have charisma or a spark that both her parents have.

  5. janie says:

    Such a beautiful young girl.. U can tell she wasn’t raised by her dad! Kim is probably happy Alec lived so far away, God knows he was a crappy dad! Good luck to the new wife!

    • crtb says:

      Really? How can you tell that? Because Alec was actively involved in her life the entire time she was growing up. He would fly into LA 2 and 3 times a week just to have dinner with her. He spoke on the phone to her every day. He was more involved than most fathers who live with their children! If you knew what you were talking about, you would know that the reason for this bad blood between her mother and father was because Kim did everything in her power to turn her daughter against her father. (Like Halle). You can say a lot of negative things about AB, but you can never deny how much he loves his daughter and how he spent blood, sweat and tears to be in her life. Please don’t repond about one negative voice mail that her left. Look at a lifetime of love and attention rather than one bad night. Every parent has a day that they lose it. The real crime was releasing that tape to the media and humiliating the child. That did alot more damage than what was said.

      • Zvonk says:

        I agree with you on everything except that voicemail. i think as her father he was 100% in the right.

      • TG says:

        Agree 100% too. Kim and Halle are cut from the same mold. This girl sounds like a brat just like her mom and she isn’t that pretty at least not in these photos and her legs look like tree trunks like Katie Holmes

      • Dawn says:


    • HotPockets says:

      Janie, I’ve known people who have worked with Kim Basinger and she is a certified lunatic. The woman has deep mental issues, so the fact that she is behind her daughter’s career is a little disconcerting. I am not a fan of Alec Baldwin, but I think he is a little more grounded and stable than Kim, that’s for sure.

    • c'est la vie says:

      Her loving father called her a pig and it made the news. Still sounds like the rageholic Alec we all know and love.

      I wouldn’t want him for a father, honestly.

      Btw she’s a beautiful girl, hope she gets her career going.

  6. Bubulle says:

    She’s cute but her mom was drop dead gorgeous.

  7. Buckwild says:

    She is a pretty girl but nowhere near Kim’s beauty when she was young..something about the spacing of her eyes and chin that don’t jell well (maybe its the Alec in her?). I don’t think she would have gotten a modeling contract if not for the Basinger/Baldwin. Looks like a “Instagram model” type to me.

    That being said, she looks harmless and happy so good for her 🙂

    • Christina says:

      I agree. She’s obviously a really pretty girl and has the right height to be a model, but her face is attractive in a forgettable kind of way – which you certainly could not say about her mother. Also, I think she resembles her father rather more than her mother. She kind of reminds me of Amber Le Bon, who also owes her modelling career (such as it is) to her parents’ name, not her looks. Then again, these days modelling is all about PR, and these girls will certainly attract publicity, so it’s a good deal on all sides.

  8. Samtha says:

    I did competitive dance when I was her age (from pre-school until I graduated). It was at least two to three hours after school and all day Saturday. My point–there’s no reason to be afraid of physical activity! It doesn’t sound like she’s doing too much more than the average sporty kid who does soccer or volleyball or softball, etc.

  9. virginia5 says:

    not going to lie, in the thumbnail I thought she was rumer willis.

    It looks like she got something done to her lips,honestly I don’t find her pretty.

  10. Seagulls says:

    She’s so pretty now, but she is going to be ridiculous pretty in ten years…

  11. KelT says:

    She is pretty, but not strikingly so. I agree about the resemblance to the Willis jaw. Her height and name, not necessarily her looks, have a lot to do with the modeling career. Happy for her, and happy to know that her mom is keeping watch.

  12. Em says:

    I mean, she’s pretty… I guess, because ugly she isn’t. But she does not have a model face. No distinctive features or anything. Idgi.

  13. Evie says:

    Hard life, flitting around from LA to New York to Hawaii. Sigh.

  14. Amanda_SB says:

    Oh to be that young and have that much energy! I remember my college days when I would run 20-25 miles a day…just to relieve stress. Now I’m lucky if I get any exercise at all. C’est la vie.

    I hope that her father’s ignorant rant in which he called her a “fat pig” went in one ear and out the other. I think society/the media puts way too much attention on being thin, and as a model, she is going to feel the pressure to be thin for years to come. She also has the added pressure of being Kim’s daughter.

    I never noticed the Rumor Willis resemblance before, but in these photos I have to agree.

    • anneesezz says:

      He didn’t call her a fat pig. He called her a thoughtless pig. I mean, it’s truly awful what he said, but it’s big difference.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        Am I the only person on earth who didn’t think Baldwin’s rant about his daughter’s messy room was that bad??

      • DeltaJuliet says:

        It had nothing to do with her room

        Baldwin was furious when Ireland – who lives with her mother Kim Basinger in Los Angeles – did not answer the phone when she knew he was due to call from New York.

        During the call, recorded on the girl’s answering machine, Baldwin, 49, ranted: “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 that you’re a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn’t care about what you do as far as I’m concerned.

        “Once again I have made an ass of myself trying to get to a phone. You have humiliated me for the last time with this phone.”

        He then threatened to fly to LA “for the day, just to straighten you out on this issue”.

        Baldwin, calling on April 11 at 10.30am New York time (7.30am in California), told Ireland he drops everything when it is time for his scheduled phone calls and expects her to do the same.

  15. Cookie says:

    If she’s 6’2″ then with heels on she must be around 6’5″! I’m 5’10” myself and rarely wear heels because I hate feeling that tall. More power to her, but I can’t imagine walking around in stiletto heels like that.

  16. Abra says:


    *eats donut*

  17. Karen says:

    She’ll be a swimsuit model when booked, or more commercial. She’s fit but not “Paris runway” emanciated. Good luck to her. Modeling is a mean industry.

  18. bluhare says:

    If it weren’t for her parents, she’d be smack in the middle of the blonde model wanna-bes. Unless she’s got The Look, she’s going to try acting soon.

    She’s a pretty girl, but so is everyone else who wants to model, and sometimes the pretty girls aren’t the successful ones; the unusual ones are. And I hope she doesn’t go the too skinny route, but depending on what she wants to model she may have to.

  19. Dawn says:

    Stop with the Willis comparisons. There is no way she looks like those girls and she is a beauty!

  20. Layale says:

    I said before I was concerned about body-mind issues with her because of what Alec screamed at her in that voicemail (that’s the only time we heard it….how many times had he called her a pig before?) And I think the working out to extreme isn’t just normal teenage energy stuff. I think she’s got body-mind issues and I’m concerned about future eating disorders. I hope I’m wrong. I could easily be. And in this case would be glad to be.

  21. Samihami says:

    I think she’ll be stunning in a few years. She hasn’t quite grown into her looks yet but it’s easy to see that once her face matures a bit more she is going to be a stunner.

  22. bsh says:

    She looks so much like her father, face-wise! She is a beautiful girl, and I don’t see anything wrong in being healthy and working out that much (at her age), even though I am wondering.. how about school? Has she graduated yet? I just hope she isn’t going to start starving herself to look like those bubble-faced, anorexic models..
    Also, I don’t think that Alec Baldwin has been a bad parent at all. Except for that infamous rant, which is not excusable, but I a have the feeling he is a doting father who really loves her. Everybody can lose it from time to time.

  23. gg says:

    She is very pretty. Nobody is perfect and wouldn’t that be boring if we all were? All I’ve seen of her online though is nonstop posing, and she only has one face pose which I am getting sick of seeing everywhere. Maybe all 17-year-olds are like this, but she seems very full of herself from what I’ve seen, along the lines of the constantly posing Paris Hilton. Kids grow up though, so hopefully she’ll turn out okay.

  24. Mr.Smurf says:

    I have never understood why people continually bring up that voicemail whenever Alec and/or his daughter is mentioned. Is it because of his anger issues? My point is how many times have you said/yelled something to your kid or partner that you instantly regretted. At least we have the luxury of it not being all over the news.

    I’m not saying that Alec is a saint or a demon, but I think it said a lot about how Kim treated him at least after their marriage, for her to release that tape to the media. I don’t know about you, but I would’ve been beyond embarrassed to have everyone know that my parent called me that.

    My point is, is that barring the occasional paparazzi episode I’ve never heard of him going off on anyone. Maybe that’s why he and Kim got divorced. Maybe he is just a big, huge rage monster, who freaks if everything doesn’t go his way. But seriously, Sean Penn gets slightly better treatment by posters.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      Exactly! That’s how I reacted when I heard the taped conversation of Alec Baldwin talking about his daughter’s messy room. I was like ‘Oh come on, whose parent ‘hasn’t’ gone off on them for not cleaning up their room, and probably said much worse at the time, too!’ (depending upon how many times they’d had to remind you to clean it or asked you ‘not’ to leave it messy).

      • DeltaJuliet says:

        Maybe I’m misremembering, but I’m pretty sure that message had nothing to do with the state of her bedroom. I’m pretty sure he was pissed at her for not calling him or returning a call because it was actually something like “rude little pig”. And you know what? Sure, I’m not perfect and everyone says things they shouldn’t. But I WOULD NEVER call my child names like that. NEVER.

        Ah…here it is:

        Baldwin was furious when Ireland – who lives with her mother Kim Basinger in Los Angeles – did not answer the phone when she knew he was due to call from New York.

        During the call, recorded on the girl’s answering machine, Baldwin, 49, ranted: “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 that you’re a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn’t care about what you do as far as I’m concerned.

        “Once again I have made an ass of myself trying to get to a phone. You have humiliated me for the last time with this phone.”

        He then threatened to fly to LA “for the day, just to straighten you out on this issue”.

        Baldwin, calling on April 11 at 10.30am New York time (7.30am in California), told Ireland he drops everything when it is time for his scheduled phone calls and expects her to do the same.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        Hmmmm … I could have sworn that at some point he called her a messy little pig because of her bedroom.

        I still don’t see anything wrong with it. I’ll bet Kim had more of a problem with it than Ireland (she ‘is’ the one who leaked the tape), because she and her Dad have always seemed to get along just fine.

      • Mr.Smurf says:


        From what I remember reading about it, is that Kim Basinger did everything she could to not keep them in contact. So when he left that voicemail, he’d been calling her all day to try and get ahold of her.

        I’m not excusing what he did/said to his daughter. It was wrong and I would think that he knows that. I’m sure he felt awful about it and probably apologized for another year.

        I’ve only ever gotten my mom that mad once. It’s just one of those things that happens with kids. What happened with me was that my mom has a lot of nice, old glasses. These glasses are generally found in thrift stores, where they are generally really old and you can’t find them anywhere else. My mom has a system of how/where to put them, so no one breaks them.

        After rearranging them for the millionth time, she got mad because she is always telling me and my siblings how to put them away. When I say millionth, I mean it’s almost a weekly thing for her. So she yelled at me, and I started crying because I always seem to do that whenever I’m in any sort of trouble, and then she went into her room.

        Later that evening when I went downstairs to get a drink of water, trying to avoid my mom, she came out of her room towards me. She told me to come over to her, hugged me (with me starting to cry again), and said she was really sorry about yelling at me, and asked me if I know that she loves me. Which was something I really wanted to hear, because I don’t hear it very often, though I know that she does.

        So my main point is that we can’t hold him for ONE incident. Especially now that we see that he and his daughter have a good relationship. If she didn’t want to be with him, see him at all, she wouldn’t be anywhere near him.

  25. Sweet Dee says:

    Maybe it’s just cause I watched a whole season of Top Model, but you don’t have to look pretty all the time to be a great model. She probably photographs incredibly well, and I don’t think she’s as ugly as everyone here is saying.

    Also, working out that much is not that big a deal, it means she can eat! Hopefully she will eat and not become the scary thin emaciated model type.

  26. rachel says:

    Unfortunately she has alot of BALDWIN in her. Beedy eyes and a weird face.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      Beady eyes? Where have you been? Alec Baldwin was a babe back in the day, and he still has his moments. He has incredible eyes, and he is a talented actor too.

  27. Decloo says:

    Doesn’t she have to go to school? What about college?

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. I mean, I think it’s great that her mom is supportive of her career, but it’d be nice some of these young “celebrities” to go to college, too. Being well-rounded is important. She definitely has her father’s eyes. For the record, Alec Baldwin may not be perfect, but he sure is talented.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      Models have a short professional life. Most of the fresh new models in magazines and on the Cat Walk these days are all in their teens. Most start around 15 or 16, which is why is SO unrealistic for us to try and look like them.

  28. E says:

    Finally a person that doesn’t do the ‘cute’ thing: ‘oh I am so blessed genetically! I eat hamburgers all day long and I never exercise! I am naturally glorious you fat bitches’
    I like that she works out and she shares how much she works out in order to have that healthy body.
    And in all fairness, she is genetically blessed. I don’t see any extra chin as previous people commented.

  29. A says:

    She’s only 17!? She looks about 28! She looks so much older than her age, wow.

  30. j-asorous says:

    Bless her heart but who the eff other than a 17 yr old has time to work out for half the day?! I’d look like her too.

  31. Emma - the JP Lover says:

    @Kaiser, who wrote: “I would say that it’s crazy that Ireland works out so much, but… she’s 17 years old. She’s got the energy. She probably dances because she loves to dance and then does cardio because why not?”

    I guess you’ve never seen Lourdes Ciccone’s workout schedule. She started a daily aerobics routine before she was 10, at her mother’s encouragement.

    Ireland probably wants to avoid any eating disorder issues. And wasn’t this child a brunette a couple of years ago when Alec took her as his date to one of the Awards shows?

  32. sara says:

    She looks just like her dad.

  33. carol says:

    its way easier to look healthy with strength training than to kill yourself with hours of cardio! lol

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      The thing is, with cardio you not only ‘look’ healthy, you ‘are’ healthy … and so is your heart. 🙂

  34. TG says:

    @DeltaJuliet – I still am for Alec on this one. I agree he obviously was angry and said too much, but I have a feeling this had been building up for a long time before he flew off the handle. His child probably was behaving bratty thanks to her mother’s influence. Maybe I am just defending him because I have always liked him but I can understnad the hurt and frustration a parent must feel when the other parent has been doing everything they can for years to try to remove you from your child’s life and alienating the child from you.

    The mom is the bad one I think for releasing a private moment to the public. People like Halle, tiny tom and this woman are all alike. I just hope Alec doesn’t get screwed yet again with this other young thing he married. Now maybe he can have a full and active part of his child’s life and hope this child isn’t a brat like this kid who can’t stop posting photos of herself.

  35. Chelsea's handler says:

    “I work out twice a day,” she said. “I do more of my yoga and my dance in the morning and I do my cardio at night.”

    It sounds like a very sel indulgent lifestyle to me.

    • Chelsea's handler says:

      “I work out once a day,” she said. “I do more of my yoga and my dance in the morning and I volunteer at the big sister program in the afternoon”

      There that’s better. 🙂

  36. xoxokaligrl says:

    Nice figure so its a duh that she works out so mich. Average face though, i dont think shed get so much attention if it wasnt for her parents.

  37. Jess says:

    I feel weird about how much attention she’s getting now. She’s a very pretty girl, and tall to boot, but she isn’t striking. She looks like a lot of pretty girls her age, just an inch or two taller.

    Seems like she’s being set up for a fall, because she isn’t suited to the European catwalks or editorials in the high fashion mags and she isn’t striking enough for big name ad work or even something like VS. Best case scenario she lands a few big-ish gigs because of the family name, but beyond that I don’t see her getting very far. If it weren’t for her connections she could still be a model, but the type who does promo work and the odd catalogue.

    Also, I know people give her a pass to focus on Alec, but Kim Basinger is as much a nut-job as Alec is a rage monster. The fact that she’s such a big part of her kids career isn’t comforting.

  38. Jennifer12 says:

    Just wondering…. how does a high school senior have so much time to work out? My nephews barely have time for work and their teams.

  39. I Choose Me says:

    Oooohkay. So that happened quickly. The Ireland backlash I mean. Some of the comments here are downright nasty. 🙁

  40. Carol says:

    I had the same thought: where is her time for school and homework?

    • Chelsea's handler says:

      She doesn’t need to do it. She’s already secured a high paying career.

    • WendyNerd says:

      I’m a full-time student taking six classes this semester, and I manage to get work out time in. Not as much as she does, but I’ve had jobs with tons of hours and managed. She could be homeschooled as well, and that opens up time.
