Ireland Baldwin is Experimenting With Cannabis Cooking, Murals, and TikTok in Quarantine

Ireland Baldwin is a member of a famous show-business family, but fans know her best as an up-and-coming model. With a friend circle that includes Justin Bieber and the Kardashian-Jenners, Baldwin is a major social media star, frequently posting funny and inspirational content for her followers. Baldwin is currently in quarantine, along with most of the state of California, and recently, she has been posting more than ever on Instagram, making waves with her wildly entertaining videos and pictures.

Ireland Baldwin was born in California in 1995. Her father is the acclaimed actor Alec Baldwin, and her mother is the actress and model Kim Basinger. Although Baldwin led a charmed life during her young years, her parents divorced when she was only seven years old. Baldwin remained out of the headlines for the most part until 2013, when she signed with a modeling agency and began appearing in editorials and photoshoots.

Baldwin quickly made waves in the fashion community, as she combines the blonde good looks of her mother with the entertaining presence of her father. She has worked with many top brands, including True Religion Jeans, Guess, and Elle Bulgaria. Baldwin is very close with her cousin, Hailey Baldwin Bieber, and spends a lot of time with the fellow model and her husband, Justin Bieber. In her free time, Baldwin likes to DJ and has even dabbled in acting — however, modeling remains her first love.

Ireland Baldwin’s time in the spotlight has not been without controversy. In 2007, her name made headlines when a voicemail rant that her father left her went public. In the voicemail, Alec Baldwin refers to his daughter as a “rude, thoughtless, little pig.” Years later, Alec Baldwin opened up about the infamous voicemail, stating that the incident caused a “permanent” rift in their relationship. These days, the two have come a long way and have a strong relationship that has survived many rough patches. 

Ireland Baldwin is also an outspoken advocate for animal rights and in 2018, she posed naked for PETA. Early on in her career, Baldwin went public with her relationship with rapper Angel Haze. Although she received some criticism for being so outspoken regarding her personal life, many applauded Baldwin for being an advocate for the LGBTQ community. The two broke up in early 2015.

Ireland Baldwin went into quarantine at the end of March, and even though California will be slowly opening up in the weeks to come, for now, Baldwin is still lying low. One of the first things that Baldwin did in quarantine was taking to Instagram to share a recipe video on how to make “THC infused Rice Crispy Treats.” Her Cannabis Cooking segment was wildly popular with fans, and although she hasn’t posted a new recipe video since mid-April, there’s a chance she will do another one in the future.

Baldwin has also been exploring her creative side, and on April 18th, she posted a picture of a shed in her backyard, next to her pool. The photo revealed that she had painted a beautiful mural on the back of the shed, in shades of orange, gold, and yellow. She has discovered a love of the video app TikTok, and has posted several hilarious videos, including featuring Baldwin wearing a bold kimono, sprinting toward the camera with a tube of sunscreen in hand. While it’s not clear when life can finally go back to “normal,” it certainly seems as though Ireland Baldwin is having fun in the meantime.
