Eminem always quite literally made a song and dance about his then infant daughter, Hailie, in tracks such as ‘Stan’ and ‘Mockingbird,’ but whatever happened to ?
Despite her turbulent childhood, Hailie has grown up to be an accomplished young woman and below is a round up of everything we know about Eminem’s only child.
Sister From Another Mister
Born on Christmas day in 1995, Hailie might be an only child, but she did grow up with her cousin Alaina who was basically raised as her sister. Eminem and his wife Kim adopted Alaina as their own daughter after her parents (her mother was Kim’s twin sister) were unable to take care of her.
As you might expect, Alaina and Hailie remain close to this day and they even spent Christmas together with their partner’s in 2015.
Hailie and Alaina (who was formally adopted in 2002) also have a younger half sister named Whitney who is the daughter of Kim and another man. Eminem has previously expressed an interest in being a part of her life even though she isn’t his daughter, he explained:
“I’m in love with that girl, man. She’s so sweet and funny.”
Daddy’s Little Girl
Although Eminem and Kim weren’t always the perfect parents, they clearly did everything they could to raise their daughter right and Hailie has been forthcoming about praising her folks and all they’ve done for her.
In her yearbook, Hailie named both Eminem and Kim as the most influential people in her life, she wrote:
“My mother and father are because they have pushed me to be the person I am and have given me all the support to achieve what I have.”
Top Of The Class

Hailie’s parents were keen for their daughter to have as normal upbringing as possible and, unlike the children of many high-profile stars, she was sent to a public school in her native Detroit.
While at the Chippewa Valley High School Hailie was a star pupil and she graduated with a 3.9 grade point average (that’s basically an A+ for those non-Americans out there) in 2014. She was given the prestigious Summa Cum Laude status for her high achievement.
Looks like Hailie is set up to be
While Eminem ploughed his creative energy into music and lyrics, his daughter Haile has more of a penchant for the visual arts. During her high school days the now 20-year-old was part of Art Club.
Hailie also has athletic and academic inclination and she was also a member of the Volleyball team along with the National Honor Society and Student Council according to US weekly.
Seems like she’s a girl of many talents, just like
Hailie Mathers doesn’t just have impressive academic ability, she was also crowned the Homecoming Queen when she graduated from high school.
Although you can only see Hailey’s mom Kim in the video, Eminem was also there. He watched the ceremony from the school cafeteria because he didn’t want to steal his daughter’s moment in the spotlight. Now that’s a good dad.
Another parent in attendance at the Chippewa Valley High School graduation explained:
“Hailie came out with her mother Kim [Scott] when she was introduced with all the other kids but her father watched from inside the school because he didn’t want to cause a scene — he wanted Hailie to have her own moment.”
Hailie plans to continue with her studies and attend college. According to her yearbook, she wanted to pursue a degree in psychology or entrepreneurship at college.
Eminem’s only daughter is now at Michigan State University, but it is unknown which subject she chose to pursue in the end.
You go, girl!
Are you surprised at everything that Hailie Mathers has achieved?
