Ireland Baldwin Starved Herself for Years Because of Comments About Her Body. But Now, She Doesn’t Care and Just Adores Herself

The daughter of the famous beauty Kim Basinger, Ireland Baldwin, has been hearing comments about not measuring up to her mother’s looks since childhood. In order to conform to imagined standards, the girl lost weight through extreme methods and developed health issues. It took several years before Ireland was finally able to ignore the opinions of others, do what she wanted, and simply love herself.

Now, Ireland Baldwin loves her body and treats herself as the most precious thing, but this attitude didn’t come out of nowhere. It took years of effort for her to finally stop listening to every negative comment about her appearance and overcome eating disorders that arose from this criticism.

“I have been called some version of fat, ugly, worthless and irrelevant by grown adults on the internet since I was a kid. It’s nothing new. Paparazzi have followed me around for whatever boring reason and have snapped photos all up, cellulite, double chin, you name it! It’s invasive and super lame, but it’s out of my control.”

Ireland admits that she spent too many years starving herself because of some trolls’ comments about how she would never be as slim and beautiful as her mother. As a result, Ireland had to work to restore her health for more than 7 years. Now, she has finally found herself on the other side of all the food restrictions. Moreover, she openly talks about just loving to eat delicious food.

Of course, like many people, there are things that Ireland doesn’t like about her own appearance. For her, she struggled to accept the appearance of her jaw line. She decided to undergo a procedure to correct it and didn’t even think about hiding it. At the same time, Ireland made it clear that all the changes she makes are only out of love for herself, and the opinions of random people no longer matter.

“The most glorious part is, I am not posting revealing pictures for any of you. It’s all for me.”

By letting go of all the fears about what others would think of her, Ireland began to dare to do things that she had been afraid of for years. For example, she cut her hair extremely short and admits that now she feels more beautiful than ever.

“Do things that scare you. Do things that other people say you’ll never do. My hair was destroyed by years of bleach and modeling and stuff since I was 17. It’s long overdue for a restart/refresh. I’ve always wanted to do this, but I was always scared. Now that I don’t care about what other people think, I feel more beautiful than ever.”

Right now, Ireland is in a happy relationship and is expecting an addition to the family: she and her partner are having a girl. And even this joyous event, Ireland decided to celebrate in her own unique way. The couple headed to a club and threw a real party there. Ireland’s mother, Kim Basinger, also joined in the celebration.

Ireland has truly been able to find herself and learn to live without worrying about what others may say.
