"She's made me proud." What Eminem's daughter Hailie Scott's life looks like now.

So here’s a fact that might rock your social isolation: rapper and singer Marshall Mathers (Eminem) doesn’t just have one daughter. He has three.

We’ve heard a lot about eldest daughter Hailie Scott’s upbringing in songs like ‘Mockingbird’ and ‘Hailie’s Song’. We’re also relatively familiar with Mathers’ troubled relationship with his ex-wife Kimberly Anne Scott. But what fans have seldom heard about is the two adopted daughters that changed Eminem’s life.

Unless you’re a die-hard Eminem fanatic, chances are the names Alaina Marie Mathers and Whitney Scott Mathers aren’t familiar.

Watch a clip from Eminem’s music video for ‘Lose Yourself’. Post continues below. 

Recently speaking about his children, Eminem was every bit the proud dad.

“No babies, she has a boyfriend, but she’s doing good. She’s made me proud for sure. She’s graduated from college,” he told Mike Tyson on his podcast, Hotboxin’.

“I have a niece I have helped raise too, [she’s] kind of like a second daughter to me and she’s 26 and I have a younger one that’s 17 now. So when I think of my accomplishments, that’s probably the thing I’m most proud of.”

This is what their lives look like now.

Hailie Jade Scott

Hailie has the most public persona of Eminem’s daughters.

She’s also Eminem’s only biological daughter and was born on Christmas Day in 1995, making her 24.

In 2014, Hailie graduated Summa Cum Laude from Michigan’s Chippewa Valley High School and paid tribute to her parents.

“My mother and father because they have pushed me to be the person I am and have given me all the support to achieve what I have,” she said in an end of school newsletter, reported E!News.

Hailie also graduated from Michigan State University in 2018 with a degree in psychology. It’s also the place she met her current boyfriend, Evan McClintock.

Since her graduation, it looks like the millennial has turned her aspirations to becoming an Instagram influencer and regularly shares her outfits with her 1.9 million followers.

Alaina Marie Mathers

Born under the name Amanda in 1993 to Kim’s twin sister Dawn Scott – who died of drug abuse in 2016 – Alaina Marie was legally adopted by Eminem in the 2000s, although it’s unclear precisely when this happened. Her name was legally changed during the adoption process.

Alaina was occasionally referenced in Eminem’s work; in ‘Mockingbird’ the rapper referred to Alaina and Hailie sisters. She is often called ‘Lainey’ in lyrics.

While Alaina’s life today is very private, it’s believed she is a student at Oakland University and lives on her own.

Whitney Scott Mathers

Whitney was born in 2002 to Kim and her tattoo artist ex-partner Eric Hartter, but Eminem has full custody of the teenager due to her biological father's drug and legal issues.

Not much is known about her – she's only 17 but likes to colour her hair every shade of the rainbow. The rapper briefly mentions her in his songs ‘Going Through Changes’ and ‘When I’m Gone’.
