Alec Baldwin’s daughter with Kim Basinger, Ireland Baldwin, has shared the happy news she is expecting her first child with her musician boyfriend.

This will be the couple’s first child together. They’ve been dating for about a year.

The happy news comes after Baldwin opened up in June about why she chose to previously have an abortion, saying having a child at that time in her life would have been “traumatising”.

The model shared the deeply personal message to TikTok in the wake of the US Supreme Court’s controversial repeal of Roe v. Wade, a landmark decision that legalised abortion.

“I am only now sharing my story because I want other women to feel supported and loved whether they want to share their own, or not,” she said.

Ireland Baldwin’s first pregnancy also comes a few months after she said she was “unbothered” when her dad and his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, announced they were expecting their seventh child together.

At the time she addressed “obsessed” fans asking about her father, Alec Baldwin’s growing family, saying it is “none of [her] business.”

In an Instagram message, she clapped back at fans asking about her dad’s family life after he announced he was set to become a father again.

Baldwin said that fans were “alarmingly obsessed with my father and his family”.

“I think a lot of people assume my take on any of this, well here it is for free – it’s none of my business.”
