Baldwin is also said to be friends with Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Jaden and Willow Smith: "We all kind of come from the same background, essentially our families are already in the [entertainment] industry and [...] it's not very hard for young people in the [entertainment] industry to get connected and become friends [...]. People [...] are like: 'What [are] you guys doing [...]?' as if we do anything that's out of the ordinary [...], just normal teenagers."
Baldwin was raised as an Evangelical Christian and often shares on social media quotations from the Bible: "I was raised in church. I was brought up in that life, and I think that it's very important for everybody to be in touch with their spirituality and to have a relationship with God. Not everybody is going to believe in the God that I believe in, but it's something that I'm not afraid to share with people because I know how it inspires me – how it positively affects my life [...]. I think that God kind of put me in the place in my life to not be quiet about it, not be quiet about him, but to reach people and to inspire people."
She also had a brief relationship with Justin Bieber that skyrocketed her public appeal and popularity.
In late 2016 Baldwin spoke out about the rumors which have accused her of having had plastic surgery with an aesthetic aim, which mainly focused on her lips and cheekbones. "Everybody literally thinks I've had plastic surgery [...]. Do people want me to go to a doctor and have them examine my face so they can tell people I haven't? My face has just matured. I grew into my looks. I do look different than I did when I was younger, but it's still the same face," Baldwin told ES Magazine.
