Billy Baldwin had a health scare hit very close to home during the past couple of years. His now 18-year-old son Vance was diagnosed with cancer back in 2018 and had to undergo 28 rounds of chemotherapy.
But after quietly undergoing cancer treatments, Vance has been blessed to be cancer-free for over a year.
At 25, she may have five half-siblings significantly younger than her, but Ireland Baldwin hasn’t gotten lost in the shuffle. Mother, Kim Bassinger, was a model and Ireland decided to follow in mom’s footsteps.
She was previously signed to IMG Models in 2013 and appeared in a variety of magazines. She is currently signed to DT Model Management.
Her Own Struggles
Many may see her as having a privileged and polished life, but Ireland Baldwin (Alec's daughter) has had struggles and scandals of her own. She confessed that she had previously battled with eating disorders and, back in 2015, she resigned from IMG Models after checking into rehab.
Thankfully, after overcoming some of her struggles, Ireland has been able to continue modeling outside of IMG. After singing with DT Model Management, she appeared in ad campaigns for big brands such as True Religion Jeans and Guess.
The Making Of A Model
So how did Hailey become so famous in the world of modeling? Certainly, connections through her parents may have helped, but Hailey did a lot of hard work of her own. She was signed with Ford Models and soon after, appeared in a handful of ad campaigns. In 2014, she hit the runway for the TopShop fashion show and for French designer Sonia Rykiel.
She then became more widely known as she began appearing on international versions of Elle and Harper’s Bizarre. But she is probably best seen and known through her Instagram account.
More Than A Model
Hailey has been busy outside of the modeling world and is more than just a pretty face. She originally wanted to be a professional ballerina, but a foot injury put those dreams to rest.
And though she did appear briefly on SNL with uncle Alec back in 2009, she has been in front of the camera as a host on shows like MTV Europe and the TBS show, Drop the Mic. In addition, since being in the fashion world, she has also been able to collaborate with designers to create her own pieces.
