Ire­land Bald­win gushes over mom Kim Basinger

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Ire­land Bald­win can’t be­lieve how “beau­ti­ful” her mother is. The 21-year-old model took to so­cial me­dia on Satur­day to gush about her amaz­ing mother Kim Basinger. Up­load­ing a pic­ture of her mom on In­sta­gram, she cap­tioned it: “rare mo­ment alert ... Momma Kim in the flesh. I have no idea how peo­ple are born this beau­ti­ful (sic)” It comes af­ter Ire­land branded her fa­ther Alec a “big old ham” as she poked fun at the in­fa­mous voice­mail he left when she was a child. In a 2007 rant, her fa­ther had called her a “rude, thought­less, lit­tle pig” and she quipped there was no way he would ever speak to her that way again be­cause she is able to “kick his ass”. Tak­ing to the stage at Har­lem’s World Fa­mous Apollo The­atre in New York City for Spike TV’s ‘One Night Only’ se­ries, Ire­land joked: “Hello, my name is Ire­land, and I’m a Bald­win. Yes, I’m a mem­ber of that fam­ily. The Bald­wins. I see other re­cov­er­ing Bald­wins here. Some cousins, un­cles ... I’m here to roast this big old ham I call my fa­ther. “Speak­ing of pigs. Some of you may re­mem­ber me as that thought­less lit­tle pig you read about. That was a decade ago, and my dad and I are in a much bet­ter place now. He would never say some­thing like that. Be­cause I’m 6’2? and I would kick him. “The truth is, that whole aw­ful pe­riod nearly killed him emo­tion­ally. I wouldn’t see my dad that up­set ever again ... un­til I showed him my first tat­too. OK, my sec­ond tat­too. I couldn’t show him where I got the first one. I know you’ve heard this and time again, but I re­ally am proud to be your daugh­ter, and I’m so happy to be here tonight. And I ab­so­lutely love and adore you.”
