With his two favourite girls on each arm, Alec Baldwin shows his tender side at a New York party. Flanked by fiancée Hilaria Thomas and his statuesque daughter Ireland, he looked a world away from the volatile character who has often hit the headlines for his behaviour.
Ireland, once the subject of a custody battle between the30 Rock
star and his ex-wife Kim Basinger, has grown up into a lovely young lady. Posing confidently for the cameras, the 16-year-old appeared to have inherited her father's charisma and her mother's grace and delicate colouring. And she has clearly forged a good relationship with Alec. In his 2008 bookPromise to Ourselves
the actor documented his struggle to stay part of her life through the seven years it took to resolve his differences with her Oscar-winning mother.
