Ireland Baldwin Brushes Off Dating Rumors With Dad’s Prying Texts
Alec Baldwin’s teenage daughter Ireland has shut down speculation she is dating Olivia Wilde’s ex-husband by sharing a series of her dad’s nosy text messages inquiring about her rumored love life. Model Ireland Baldwin, whose mother is Kim Basinger, was snapped on a coffee date with rocker and Italian royal Tao Ruspoli, 39, in Venice, California, on Wednesday.
The meet-up sparked rumors of a new relationship online and Alec was quick to alert the teen to the latest gossip by sending her a link to one article early on Thursday. Ireland subsequently posted a screenshot of the funny text exchange on Instagram in a bid to put a stop to the unfounded claims, which suggested she was “getting cozy” with Tao. Denying the reports, she responds to her father, “Oh my god I just met him yesterday.” Unsatisfied with her answer, Alec probed, “Well…? Are you getting married?,” to which she replied, “No, dad Jesus.” https://instagram.com/p/8lDWmGEoJe/?taken-by=bootsiedonjuan The cheeky 30 Rock star continued to tease his daughter, writing, “Am I going to be a grandfather?,” prompting her to sarcastically retort, “Very immaculate coffee conception.” Ireland captioned the screenshot, “This is what happens you get coffee with friends. You get coffee and then you pregnant [sic] and then it spirals out of control from there…” Ireland was previously linked to a man called Jon Kasik, while Tao and Olivia were married from 2003 to 2011.
