We officially feel one million years old.
If you’ve ever listened to a song by rapper Eminem, you’ll probably know the name ‘Hailie’. The 42-year-old has a daughter called Hailie Jade Scott Mathers and she was a prominent feature in all of her dad’s songs.
It’s been years since we’ve thought about little Hailie, but some Internet stalkers have tracked her down through social media. Of course they have.
Eminem’s daughter is not a little blonde girl anymore. She’s a 19-year-old college student who is excellent at taking selfies. She also really, really likes One Direction and really, really hates Taylor Swift. Go figure.
This is what she looks like today:
And now we officially feel 100 years old.
Other than mention of Hailie in his songs, Eminem somewhat shielded his three girls (including Whitney, 12, and Alaina, 21, to whom he is legal guardian) from the limelight.
In a 2011 interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Eminem said being a father and “just being there” for the girls is important to him.
“[It means] Not missing things. If there’s anything important going on, regardless of what it is, I’m there,” he said.
“Helping them with homework when you can. At the grades my older ones are in, it’s hard. I never even passed ninth grade. They’re already way smarter than me.”
