Alec Baldwin and his daughter Ireland Basinger-Baldwin have had some past instances of difficult child-parent relations, most notably when he called his daughter a "rude and thoughtless pig" in a leaked voicemail. Though he's notoriously hot-headed, it seems like Alec and Ireland have really improved their relationship. In an Instagram post, Ireland shared a text message conversation between the two, where he does what all good dads do: tease their daughters about boys. Alec sends her a link to a gossip item about Ireland's "date" with director Tao Ruspoli, then makes a bunch of dad jokes about weddings and babies.

Wow, Ireland, seems awesome to have your dad back in your life! Just kidding. Healthy family relationships involve rolling your eyes at someone occasionally.


I'm with him
