Following a long line of celebrity kids with modeling careers, Ireland Baldwin has signed with IMG Models and Two Management.
16-year-old Ireland, daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger, tweeted the news this past week:
We didn't exactly see this one coming, seeing as Ireland's previous claim to fame was getting caught in the center of her father's voicemail scandal. (Don't remember? Back in 2007, a voicemail from Alec to his then 11-year-old daughter was leaked... in which he was heard calling Ireland "a rude, thoughtless, little pig." Yikes.)
But Ireland is all grown up now, as evidenced by her bikini selfies and active Twitter feed. She's also 6 feet 2 inches tall, putting her in that perfect model height range.
So will she be walking at Fashion Week this fall? Posing for high fashion ad campaigns? We'll have to wait and see... and in the meantime, we'll be watching her highly amusing Twitter.
