Ireland Baldwin Admits She Put Her Dad Through a Lot of Emotional Pain

Julie Sprankles is a freelance writer living in the storied city of Charleston, SC. When she isn't slinging sass for SheKnows, she enjoys watching campy SyFy creature features (Pirahnaconda, anyone?), trolling the internet for dance work...

Daddy's not-so-little girl

If Ireland Baldwin's portion of Spike's upcoming One Night Only roast is any indication, no one can accuse Alec Baldwin of not having a sense of humor about himself. Apparently, he is a man who knows how to dish it out and how to take it.

As part of the special — which was taped over the weekend but won't air until Sunday, July 9 — Baldwin's model daughter went straight for the jugular, albeit in jest.

"Hello, my name is Ireland, and I'm a Baldwin. Yes, I'm a member of that family. The Baldwins. I see other recovering Baldwins here. Some cousins, uncles... I'm here to roast this big old ham I call my father," she said, just before teasing her dad about a now-infamous voicemail message.

"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-foot-2. I would kick his ass."

Daddy's not-so-little girl didn't stop there, though.

"The truth is, that whole awful period nearly killed him emotionally. 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," she teased.

Although that leaked voicemail from 2007 was undoubtedly a sore subject for a very long time for the veteran actor, Ireland Baldwin routinely downplays its significance. In 2012, she told Page Six that "people made it out to be a way bigger deal that is was."

Either way, it's great to see that Alec and Ireland have put the past in its rightful place: behind them.

According to People, Alec playfully threw food at his mischievous daughter during her speech. And for her part, Ireland ended on a super-sweet and sincere note, showing just how far this father-daughter duo has come since those notorious "little pig" days.

"I know you've heard this time and time again, but I really am proud to be your daughter, and I'm so happy to be here tonight. And I absolutely love and adore you," she said.

We love a happy ending, don't you? Which brings us to another bit of good news to come out of Alec's camp: the hilarious father-slash-Emmy-winner has confirmed he will be returning to NBC's upcoming season of Saturday Night Live to reprise his spot-on role as President Donald Trump.

"Yeah, we're going to fit that in," he told CNN. "I think people have enjoyed it."
