Ireland Baldwin is taking after her celebrity mom and dad

With Kim Basinger as her mom and Alec Baldwin as her dad, is it any surprise that Ireland Baldwin hit the looks jackpot? The lovely 17-year-old has just signed with IMG Models, and can't wait to get her modeling career off the ground.

"Officially working for @TwoManagement and @IMGModels! I'm blessed, happy, and ready to WEEEEERK," Baldwin tweeted last week. (The message has since been deleted and replaced by an official confirmation.)

The 6'2" teenager isn't the only kid to inherit her famous parents' best qualities. Here are five more talented celeb kids you may not have known about!

1. Maude Apatow
The 14-year-old daughter of filmmaker Judd Apatow and actress Leslie Mann has co-starred in three of her parents' movies (along with her little sister, Iris). In addition to her acting career, Maude has established herself as an up-and-coming writer with her witty tweets and thoughtful blog posts.

2. Prince Michael Jackson
While Paris Jackson has charmed the world in interviews, Michael Jackson's two other children haven't exactly seized the spotlight. That's going to change later this year, when Prince Michael, 16, makes his acting debut on 90210. "I’m looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor," Prince has said.

3. Christine Staub
The daughter of Real Housewives of New Jersey villain Danielle Staub is an aspiring star in her own right; in 2009, she signed with IMG Models. Since then, Christine (who turns 19 this year) has appeared in several runway shows, advertisements and fashion spreads. Hopefully she's easier to work with than her mother!

4. Natashya Hawley
Tori Amos's daughter made her professional singing debut on her mother's 2011 album Night of Hunters, and left critics spellbound. "When her 11-year-old daughter Natashya pops up on a few tracks ... she actually proves an odder, witchier, more compelling voice than her mother," wrote a Guardian reviewer.

5. Selah Marley
Between mother Lauryn Hill and father Rohan Marley, 14-year-old Selah has plenty of talent in her genes. The young beauty has already done some professional modeling, and is contemplating a singing career (obviously).
