Early lifeEdit

Baldwin was born in Los Angeles to actors Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin.[1] She is also the niece of actors Stephen, Daniel, and William Baldwin and cousin to model Hailey Baldwin. She has a younger half-sister, Carmen, and three half-brothers, Rafael, Leonardo, and Romeo through her father's second marriage.[4]

Through her father, Baldwin is descended from Mayflower passenger John Howland (1592-1673), and through this line, is the 14th generation of her family born in North America and the 15th generation to live in North America.[citation needed]

At age 11 in 2007, she gained attention in the media after her father left her an angry voicemail message, which became publicized. He stated that she was "a rude, thoughtless little pig".[5]


Baldwin signed with IMG Models in March 2013.[6] In April, Baldwin made her modeling debut in a swimwear editorial for the New York Post.[7][8] In May, Baldwin appeared in W Magazine's It Trend, It Girl feature.[9] Baldwin was Vanity Fair's It Girl in June, and was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier for the issue.[10] Elle interviewed Baldwin in their September 2013 issue.[11][12] The editorial accompanying the interview was photographed by Thomas Whiteside and styled by Joe Zee.[13] She appeared in an editorial for DuJour magazine photographed by Bruce Weber.[14] Baldwin also made her acting debut in the film Grudge Match, playing a younger version of Kim Basinger's character, Sally.[15]

In 2014 Ireland attended the 86th annual Academy Awards alongside Nancy O’Dell and Joe Zee as Media Correspondents for Entertainment Tonight.[16]

In April 2015 Baldwin resigned from IMG Models after a stint at rehab[17]. Baldwin then signed on with DT Model Management in June 2015.[18]

In 2017, Baldwin appeared in campaigns for True Religion Jeans and Guess. In May, Baldwin graced the covers of Elle Bulgaria, L'Officiel Ukraine and Marie Claire Mexico.[citation needed] Baldwin also appeared in the film Campus Caller as the main character “Macey Duncan”.[19]

In 2018, she posed naked for a PETA "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur," ad, twenty-four years after her mother did the same thing for the famous anti-fur campaign.[20] The promotional video for the piece featured Baldwin stating that she has an explicit "no fur" policy in her contract.[21] In September, Basinger-Baldwin graced the cover of Grazia, shot by Yu Tsai.[citation needed]

In 2019 Baldwin had been hired to DJ alongside Caroline D’Amore for the Norah restaurant's 3rd anniversary. However, Baldwin admitted she was "Definitely not a full time DJ". [22]

Personal lifeEdit

Baldwin was in a relationship with competitive Stand-up paddle-boarder Slater Trout that commenced in 2012.[23] However, in 2014 Baldwin ended the relationship to focus on "work and school".[24]

In 2014, she was in a relationship with rapper Angel Haze.[25] In 2015 Ireland had ended the relationship before checking herself into Malibu's Soba Recovery Center for "emotional trauma".[26]

In 2016, she dated surfer Noah Schweizer and then ended the relationship in 2018 for undisclosed reasons.[27]

In 2018, she began dating Musician Corey Harper.[28]

In 2019, Baldwin revealed in an Instagram story about the Human Life Protection Act that she was a victim of sexual assault.
