Kim Basinger as a Soon Grandmother
Basinger is one excited soon-to-be grandmother after sharing the remarkable similarity between her and her daughter, Ireland Baldwin’s baby bumps on Instagram.
She posted their respective sonograms and wrote the caption, "I know it's hard to read…But in April of 1995, this was a note I wrote on one of my first sonograms of baby Ireland."
"It said '4 white paws and a tail,'" she continued. "'Like I said to Dr. Liu (my OB), It's a puppy!'"
Based on the pictures, Ireland’s sonogram is like her mother’s.
"This weekend, 27 years later, I looked at @irelandirelandireland's newest sonogram and could have sworn she was having a Beagle!” Basinger added. “Like mother, like daughter…and a new baby girl coming our way. So looking forward to meeting this little Snoopy in June."
Of course, Ireland couldn’t help but react to her mom’s post.
“Awwwwwww!!!!!!" she commented.”
“I can't wait to meet her too,” her baby daddy, RAC, a.k.a. André Allen Anjos, also wrote.
This will be the first time Basinger and Alec will be grandparents.
