Eilish told PEOPLE during a March 2022 interview just how much Baird inspires her. "We, as people, hope for change, but often we just think it and say it. My mom is one of those people who really does it, and that's so amazing to me," she said.

"She works so unbelievably hard," Eilish added. "She is so selfless, and she cares so much about people and the world in a way that I don't think you could even believe is possible."

The Grammy and Oscar winner said she's also blown away by what a kind and loving person her mother is. "Her love shocks me, too," she explained. "I can't believe she loves people the way she does. It's really beautiful."

Despite her fame and global success, Eilish has said she still often stays with her mom and dad Patrick O'Connell.

The pair, who are also parents to Eilish's brother Finneas O'Connell, have lived in the same house since Eilish and Finneas were kids — a two-bedroom home in L.A.'s Highland Park neighborhood.

In a video from the record label Awal, Finneas shared that his parents slept in the living room to allow their kids to have their own rooms. One of those bedrooms eventually became the recording studio for Eilish's 2019 debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
