Yes, Ireland Baldwin shot to stardom thanks to her famous father, Alec Baldwin, but the 22-year-old has carved out her own path in the entertainment industry. Over the past several years, Ireland has stepped out of her father’s shadow and emerged as a promising star in her own right. Here, Life & Style rounded up everything you need to know about the young beauty.

Alec isn’t Ireland’s only well known parent. Her mother is actress Kim Basinger, whom the 59-year-old actor was married to from August 1993 to February 2002. Throughout her time in the spotlight, Ireland has been incessantly compared to her mother. In a 2013 Tumblr post, the Hollywood scion explained why comments about the physical differences between herself and Kim, 63, are bothersome.
“My mom is one of the most beautiful women in the world. She is 5’9, I am 6’2. She is petite and fragile, and I am fit and…more to love tehe,” she wrote at the time. “I have a booty, she has a thigh gap…of course I look somewhat like my own mom…But let’s not forget people…I also have a dad too, so genetically speaking, I wasn’t built to look like my mom’s identical twin!”

While she’s tried her hand at acting — Ireland made her feature film debut in 2013’s Grudge Match, in which she played a younger version of mom Kim’s character — the current Guess girl’s true love is modeling. In 2013, she signed with the prestigious agency IMG Models, and has since appeared in the pages of fashion magazines such as Marie Claire Mexico, W Magazine, Vanity Fair, and Elle.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Ireland has amassed her own fortune, estimated at $1 million. It may not be anywhere near dad Alec’s reported net worth of $65 million, but girlfriend’s already doing way better than us!

Ireland is currently dating surfer Noah Schweizer. The handsome athlete most recently appeared on Ireland’s Instagram feed in October, when she celebrated his birthday by taking him out for ice cream at LA’s Big Sugar Bakeshop. "Happy birthday to you mister man @noahschweizer,” she wrote at the time. “I love you.”
Good genes run in the family. Hailey Baldwin, also a model, is the daughter of Ireland's uncle Stephen Baldwin — making the girls first cousins. In May 2013, Ireland joked that she had a leg up on her younger cuz. “Who is the cutest Baldwin? Me. Durka durka,” she tweeted at the time. “Yeah, sure she's pretty, but does she make you laugh and a killer PB & J?”
