Ireland Baldwin Jokes About Dad Alec's Infamous 'Pig' Voicemail 10 Years Later: 'I Would Kick His A**'
By Antoinette Bueno
Ireland Baldwin has a sense of humor about a tense time in her and dad Alec Baldwin's relationship.
The 21-year-old model roasted her famous father for his upcoming Spike TV special, One Night Only: Alec Baldwin, on Sunday in New York City, where she brought up his headline-making 2007 voicemail to her when she was 11 years old. In the leaked voicemail, Alec called her a "rude, thoughtless little pig."
"I’m here to roast this big old ham I call my father," Ireland said to the crowd. "Speaking of pigs. Some of you may remember me as that thoughtless little pig you read about. That was a decade ago, and my dad and I are in a much better place now. He would never say something like that -- because I’m 6’2″ and I would keep kick his a**."
"The truth is, that whole awful period nearly killed him emotionally," she continued. "I wouldn’t see my dad that upset ever again … until I showed him my first tattoo. OK, my second tattoo. I couldn't show him where I got the first one.”
All kidding aside, the two appear closer than ever these days, embracing onstage.
Sunday isn't the first time Ireland has joked about the infamous voicemail. On Father's Day, she hilariously Instagrammed a picture of the two reading a children's book titled "If I were a pig ..."
"I love you. I always have and I always will," Ireland wrote. "You're unique. You're strong. You're by far the funniest person I've ever known or will ever know and you make me so proud to be related to you. Thank you for all that you've ever taught me. ... I love you and thank you for always lifting me up and helping me figure out who I am!"
