Eminem ‘proud’ of daughter Hailie as she builds life with boyfriend
Eminem may be one of the most successful rappers in history but he admits his ‘proudest’ achievement is being a father.
The Godzilla rapper shares daughter Hailie, 23, with his ex-wife Kimberly Scott, while he adopted her daughter Whitney from a previous relationship, and also cared for her niece’s daughter Alaina.
During an appearance on Mike Tyson’s Hot Boxin’ podcast, Eminem opened up about his life as a father which he tends to keep fairly private.
‘Hailie is 23, no babies, she has a boyfriend, but she’s doing good, she’s made me proud for sure, she’s graduated from college,’ Em told the retired boxer.
Hailie is in a serious relationship with Evan McClintock whom she is believed to have started dating in 2016. The couple met at Michigan State University where Hailie studied psychology and Evan economics.
The day Eminem becomes a grandfather is the day we’ll officially feel old.
Opening up about his other daughters, Eminem said: ‘It definitely is crazy.
‘I have a niece that I have helped raise too that’s pretty much like a daughter to me and she is 26. And I have a younger one that’s 17 now.
‘So when I think about my accomplishments that’s probably the thing I’m the most proud of is that – is being able to raise kids.’
Aw, who thought Eminem could be so sentimental?
The Lose Yourself rapper went on to explain how the idea that money makes people happy is ‘bulls**t’.
‘It’s important to keep your kids grounded when they’re in a situation like I have, it’s very important,’ he told Tyson.
Em continued: ‘As a kid never felt like I was good enough, no matter what I did. It’s a psychological thing, for anyone who feels worthless in this world. Anybody that feels that and then finds something they’re actually good at, that’s what makes somebody go for that so hard.
‘Like, “I was never good at nothing, and I’m good at this?” People also think too that money just buys happiness, that absolutely is not the truth. You’ve got to be right inside otherwise none of this s**t means nothing.’
