Ireland Baldwin’s new racy image had a special message.
The 21-year-old daughter of actors Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger posted a photo via Instagram Thursday where she stripped down to her lingerie. The model captioned the image with a lengthy post where she got candid about accepting her body.
“This is who I am, take it or leave it,” she wrote. “I am not going to be body shamed for being pale or not stick thin. I’m not going to spend hours photoshopping my authenticity away. I’m not going to beat myself up for not looking like someone else."
Despite Baldwin being a high profiled model, she admitted to feeling self-conscious on “most days.” However, she’s now choosing to accept her features.
“I want to be as real as possible with everyone that follows because to be quite honest, what is even the point of social media if you can’t be who you truly are?” she added. “I’m forever on a journey of finding myself and I will continue to work as hard as I can to make myself proud.”
