Alec Baldwin's daughter, Ireland, has signed a deal with a top modelling agency

Hilaria Thomas Baldwin, Alec Baldwin, and his daughter with actress Kim Basinger, Ireland Baldwin.

The '30 Rock' actor's 17-year-old daughter Ireland, whose mother is Kim Basinger, revealed she is "happy" after being snapped up by IMG Models and a professional management firm.

The 6' 2" blonde beauty, who lives in Los Angeles with her actress mother, shared her excitement on Twitter, writing: "Officially working for @TwoManagement and @IMGmodels! I'm blessed, happy, and ready to WEEEEERK (sic)".

Alec, 54, and his 28-year-old yoga instructor wife Hilaria Thomas announced last month that they will welcome their first child together later this year and Hilaria recently confirmed they are expecting a baby girl.

She said: "Alec and I are overjoyed that we are going to be welcoming a little girl into our lives."

While the couple weren't planning on having a baby so soon after their June 2012 wedding, they cannot wait to welcome the latest addition to their family.

Ireland previously revealed she and Hilaria have a great relationship.

She said: "Hilaria and I are really close. She's like a big sister to me, but I feel like I haven't spent enough time with her yet. We have a lot more to learn about each other and we have a lot more experiences to have together.

"We joke around and I call her 'Mom.' But I respect her, it's not like setting up booby traps in her room."
