Hailey Baldwin wants to prove herself

Los Angeles, Oct 30 (IANS) American model Hailey Baldwin is determined to prove herself as talented in her own right and insists every one of her famous uncles has had to do the same.

“I want to do everything on my own without my name being a factor. I try to keep myself separate from it. Kids that already have a famous background are just following in their families’ footsteps,” Hailey told Grazia magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“My dad and all of his brothers have done this. This is my family business,” added the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin.

Hailey is trying to stay grounded and her father has even threatened to “drag her by the hair” and force her to move home if he feels her jet-setting lifestyle is going to her head.

“My dad has said to me that if he ever thought I was getting out of line, he would fly anywhere and rag me by my hair and make me move home. But my parents know I’m a good kid,” she said.

Hailey credits her home-schooling for helping her be more mature than other girls her age.

She said: “I actually think that helped me become very mature for my age. I didn’t turn out socially awkward, but I just missed out on the partying and all the boys and drama. It helped me skip past being childish.”
