Though movie stars often have a reputations for sacrificing close relationships with their kids for their careers, that doesn't look to be the case when it comes to Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's 17-year-old daughter, Ireland. The willowy, blond teen proved just how strong of a bond she has with her Oscar-winning mom as they (along with Ireland's boyfriend Slater Trout) stepped out together for a low-key outing to Subway and Starbucks in Hawaii on Saturday, Basinger's 59th birthday.

Not only did Ireland don a white crew-neck T-shirt, just like her famous mom, but she also marked the occasion with a sweet message written to the star on Twitter. "Happy birthday to the most beautiful woman in the entire world," Ireland, a frequent Twitter user with 22,465 followers wrote. "You are the most influential and inspirational figure in my life, and I've always looked up to you and no one else." She continued by complimenting the "L.A. Confidential" star on her famous good looks. "You are the most naturally beautiful woman there ever was and will be.... Ladies, if you want to avoid Botox and any other skin treatments, listen to my mom! She hasn't had one treatment done because she's stay[ed] completely out of the sun all these years! Mom, you still look like your 17 and it's kind of embarrassing standing next to you." (One advantage Ireland has over her mom is height; she's reportedly a towering 6'2", while Basinger is 5'7"!

Ireland is also close to her 54-year-old dad — despite the angry, leaked voicemail he left for her in 2007, when he called her a "thoughtless little pig." In September, she explained to Page Six Magazine that the situation was blown out of proportion, and that she had chosen to be homeschooled in L.A. so that she could visit her dad in New York whenever she wanted. "The only problem with that voicemail was that people made it out to be a way bigger deal than it was," she revealed. "He's said stuff like that before just because he's frustrated. For me it was like, 'OK, whatever.' I called him back, I was like, 'Sorry, Dad, I didn't have my phone.' That was it." Baldwin lost his visitation rights for almost a year because of the voicemail, but Ireland said that recently it's become somewhat of a joke. "We almost did something funny on YouTube, of me calling him and yelling at him," she said with a laugh.

Ireland confirmed in the same interview that she even gets along with her dad's much-younger wife, Hilaria Thomas, who was 28 when she and Baldwin married in June. "[Hilaria is] 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," Ireland said. "We joke around and I call her 'Mom.' But I respect her, it's not like I'm 'Parent Trap'-ping her, setting up booby traps in her room."
