Ireland Baldwin: Paddleboard Fun on the 4th of July

Posted Friday July 5, 2013 2:05 PM GMT

Making the most of the Independence Day holiday, Ireland Baldwin took to the lake with her professional paddleboarding boyfriend Slater Trout yesterday (July 4).

The 17-year-old model frolicked around in a skimpy bikini as she posed for a few pictures that later ended up on her Instagram account.

Ireland tweeted, “Happy 4th. About to embark on a camping trip with @slatertrout. Hope you all have a fun holiday with your loved ones!”

In a recent interview, Ireland couldn’t keep from gushing about her guy- "I would say he is my best friend. We have our moments, but that's rare. We can act stupid in public, private or wherever and we are always laughing."

"We don't do normal stuff. We go paddleboarding with humpback whales in Maui. We go on athletic dates. And very romantic ones too. Like we will go to like a bluff and star gaze and go on trail runs and walk the dogs."
