Ireland Baldwin gave it to her fans straight on Wednesday when she vented about her pregnancy pet peeves.
While she was at it, the daughter of actor Alec Baldwin seems to have accidentally revealed her baby’s gender, referring to the little bean as ‘her’.
The mum-to-be, 27, announced on New Year’s Eve that she’s set to welcome her first child with her musician boyfriend Rac, real name Andre Allen Anjos, who she’s been with since 2021.
Embarking on a midweek social media ‘vent’, Ireland posted a series of clips to her Instagram Stories ‘laying down the law’ about what simply wouldn’t fly while she’s pregnant.
The model explained: ‘If one more person asks me to send a picture of my bump to them, I’m going to lose my mind. Because I don’t have one.’
But it was what Ireland said next that seemingly gave away the fact she’s expecting a little girl.

‘My child is so deeply nestled in there, and I’m tall, and there’s just a lot of room for her in there.’
Did you catch that? A lot of room for ‘her’! How adorable.
Ireland went on: ‘You wouldn’t know. I look like I ate about 12 sub sandwiches, but other than that, you would never know. So love you, but please stop asking.’
Elsewhere, the model – who covered her eyes with a sunglasses filter and made sure to point out to her 681,000 followers that her rant was ‘all in good fun’ – warned anyone who might come across her while she’s pregnant not to try and touch her bump.
‘This one is pretty common – when and if I do start to show, I don’t care if you are my best friend, I don’t care if we’re family, I don’t care who you are, I don’t discriminate, I don’t care if you’re elderly, do not touch me unless you ask,’ she said.
Ireland went on: ‘And you would be shocked, you would be shocked at how many people don’t, not just with me, obviously cause I don’t have much to put your hands on, but with friends that are pregnant [who say] “Oh it’s nonstop”.
‘That already is absolutely not going to fly with me. I already hate being touched not pregnant, so if you think for a second that I won’t throw you over my shoulder, please keep your hands to yourself. Keep your hands inside of the vehicle.’

Announcing her and her partner’s exciting news ahead of 2023, Ireland posted an ultrasound photo along with the simple message: ‘Happy New Year,’ accompanied by a love heart emoji.
The future parents were quickly inundated with love, with hundreds flocking to the comment section to share their congratulations.
Kathryn Gallagher, Chrissy Teigen and Bryana Holly were among those wishing Ireland and Rac the best on their journey.
As well as Ireland’s first child, it will be dad Alec’s first grandchild.
He himself recently welcomed a daughter, Ilaria, his seventh child with wife Hilaria, meaning his youngest daughter will be a similar age to his first grandchild.
Hilaria and Alec also share Carmen, nine, Rafael, seven, Leonardo, six, Romeo, four, Eduardo, two, Lucia, 21 months, and Ilaria, two months.
Ireland is his oldest child, who he welcomed with first wife Kim Bassinger; the pair divorced in 2002.
