Ireland Baldwin: I gorged on bagels

Ireland Baldwin has spoken about her unhealthy diet before she began modelling.

The 18-year-old daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin signed up to IMG Models last March and has already posed for the likes of Vanity Fair magazine and Elle.

Before joining the fashion industry, Ireland's eating habits were far from healthy.

"My diet consisted of Cup of Noodles and bagels, so I needed the yoga pants to hold it all together," she recalled to Galore magazine. "When I stepped into this world and truly got a feeling for what it's all about, I literally said to myself, 'Oh sh*t.'"

For her accompanying photoshoot, Ireland is seen posing in a brightly coloured bikini on a beach with her blonde-pinkish hair worn down. To get herself into shape, the star regularly exercises as well as following a healthy diet.

"The only way to feel good in a bikini is to treat your body right. Eat clean. Train. Stretch. Tone. Wear a bikini that suits your body type. Get your cheeks sandy. It's cute. Do squats. Take it low, take it way lower than that. Ha," she mused.

Ireland's mom Kim has also made a name for herself in fashion, having a successful modelling career before quitting to pursue acting. The teenager previously spoke about the struggles she faced when first starting out and of her dreams to follow in her parents' movie stardom footsteps.

"[It's] much harder than I anticipated,” she told Du Jour magazine.

“It really takes a lot out of you. Though, it is really fun and I never thought I would meet all these lovely people.

“My end goal is to act, write and direct... I grew up on my parents’ movie sets and so desperately wanted to be in their position. I would love to be in a comedy or remake of a classic novel."
