Ireland Baldwin Bikini: 17-Year-Old Model Posts Stunning Beach Shot (PHOTO)

Alec Baldwin's teenage daughter is showing the world exactly why she might just be America's next top model.

On Wednesday, Ireland Baldwin posted a gorgeous photograph of her in a black and white bikini to her Tumblr. In the shot, the 17-year-old beauty stands in the sand with the waves crashing behind her.

Ireland, who is the daughter of Alec and model-actress Kim Basinger, just signed with modeling agencies IMG and Two Management earlier this month, Us Weekly reported.

The 6-foot-2-inch Ireland might be a supermodel in the making and come from a famous family, but she insists she leads a normal life.

"I grew up going to school, participating in sports; I had a regular schedule," she told Page Six Magazine last September. "I don't live in a five-story mansion, I don't drive a Lamborghini. I live in a modest cottage and my mom cooks for me every night. The only difference being the kid of two celebrities is nothing in your life is going to be kept private and you have to watch your own back. I've had people who I thought were my friends, but it turned out they just wanted concert tickets."

She also looks to her parents for guidance. "[They] didn't really have anything handed to them," she said."They worked hard and that's inspirational to me. I never want to get anything handed to me."

The teen will soon welcome a new sibling when her stepmother, Hilaria Thomas, welcomes her first child with Alec.
