It’s been a while since Eminem was on our radar, and even when the rapper does release new music, fans often forget that he’s a father first.
The Grammy winner’s daughter Hailie is now a 21-year-old college student with a boyfriend and — what appears to be — a pretty normal social life. Like any young adult, the brunette beauty’s Instagram account features a smattering of selfies and pics with her BFF.
Plus, the former Homecoming Queen is one smart cookie. She allegedly graduated high school with a 3.9 GPA. It’s also no secret that she’s the apple of her dad’s eye.
“My daughter comes first no matter what. If there’s important things going on in her life that I need to be there for, then I’ll drop what I’m doing,” the 44-year-old previously said. “Hailie has been my main source of drive, a motivation, especially when she was first born and I didn’t have a career, I didn’t have money, I didn’t have place to live, so I think that really kicked me in the a– harder than anything.”
He added, “I was like, ‘How I’m gonna raise her?,’ and that gave me that motivation. She’s always been the driving force for me to stay busy, stay focused and always been my number one reason for fear or failure. Truth is, she’s all I got in this world. If anything ended tomorrow, she’s all I have.”
The Golden Globe nominee, who used to be married to Hailie’s mother Kimberly Anne Scott, also has custody of his ex’s daughter, Whitney, from another relationship as well as his former sister-in-law’s daughter Alaina.
