It has been eight years after Alec Baldwin’s infamous ‘rude, thoughtless pig’ voicemail to his daughter Ireland leaked. Now, things are fine and dandy between the two. In fact, the actor and Ireland are actually mocking the outburst with this silly photo!
Alec Baldwin, 57, and Ireland Baldwin, 19, are letting bygones be bygones between the two of them. The adorable duo let the world know on July 26 that they’re totally over the ‘thoughtless pig’ voicemail that Alec left for Ireland in 2007. What better way to do that than with a simple Instagram photo mocking the entire thing?
Never forget the outrageous, leaked voicemail Alec left to his then 11-year-old daughter in 2007. Now that Ireland is older, she and her father are letting everyone know their relationship is still going strong since the controversial voice message. Alec’s eldest daughter wrote on her Instagram picture with her father on July 26, “If I Were A Pig… I would be Rude and Thoughtless of course!” However, the caption wasn’t complete without a pig nose emoji! The 30 Rock actor followed suit and posted his own picture with a very similar caption, “… I’d be rude and thoughtless. That’s the only pig to be.” It’s nice to see the father-daughter duo are on great terms. However, this isn’t the first time Ireland has talked about the incident.
Back in 2012, the 19-year-old spoke to Page Six about her father’s outburst. She revealed she just shrugged off his comments — she was only 11-years-old at the time — and said everyone made it a bigger deal than it actually was. Ireland said she simply called him back and explained the misunderstanding. “For me it was like, ‘OK, whatever,’” she said. “I called him back I was like, ‘Sorry Dad, I didn’t have my phone.’ That was it.” Since then things have been fine between the two.
Alec And Ireland Spend Quality Time Together At The 2013 Emmys
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Alec and Ireland spend quality time together. At the 2013 Emmys, the SNL alum decided to bring his daughter as his date to the award show instead of his wife Hilaria, 31. The two enjoyed their night in the front row of the theater. It’s safe to say Ireland has no ill-fated feelings towards her father!
