Alec Baldwin is a first-time granddad! Ireland Baldwin gives birth and reveals country-based name
Ireland Baldwin has given birth to a baby girl.
The 27-year-old model - who is the daughter of Hollywood stars Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger - has been dating record producer RAC since 2021 and took to social media on Thursday (18.05.23) to reveal that they had welcomed their first child together.
Alongside a snap of the family of three in the hospital, she revealed her daughter's name by writing on Instagram: "holland" (sic)
Ireland was inundated with congratulatory messages upon announcing the news, including one from uncle William Baldwin, who wrote: "Welcome to the world Baby Girl Holland.
We love you" whilst stepmother Hilaria Baldwin posted two heart emojis.
Actress Rumer Willis wrote: "Omg omg hi sweet girl we can’t wait to squeeze you" whilst cousin Alaia - who is the older sister of Justin Bieber's wife Hailey - wrote: "But you look so pretty!"
Earlier this year, Ireland - whose Oscar-winning father has now become a granddad for the first time - admitted that pregnancy had been "hard" for her because of her "jaded perception" of love even though she had "always wanted" to have a baby as long as it was with the "right person."
She wrote on Instagram: "Pregnancy is hard. It takes so much out of you. I wasn’t ready for that. I’ve always wanted a baby with the right person. I grew up with a very jaded perception of what love really looked like and I always wanted to have a child of my own with someone who would treat us right and love us unconditionally. I underestimated just how hard pregnancy would be on my mind and my body. Being someone who deals with extreme health anxiety on a daily basis, pregnancy turned things into a high gear. I’ve struggled to adapt to these changes. Bodily sensations. Pains and aches. Organs going to s*** randomly."
