Even if you’re not a huge Eminem fan, you probably still know that most of his songs revolved around his daughter, Hailie Mathers. He even dedicated a whole song to her. In fact, ‘Hailie’s Song’ was released a whopping 15 years ago in 2002! (To be fair, though, the song was more about his ex-wife than Hailie, but it was still super emotional).
But do you remember when Eminem sang: “My baby girl keeps gettin’ older?” Well, we hate to break it to you, Eminem. But Hailie has got a whole lot older, and puberty has done her well.
Hailie Mathers has come a long way since her days starring in her father’s music videos at the age of 7-years-old and has now blossomed into a beautiful young lady at 21-years-old. You might be saying, so what? A child has grown up? Big deal? But it’s Hailie’s reveal that has sparked internet interest.
Since Eminem rapped about her during his career, Hailie has kept a relatively low profile, and kept out the limelight. She led a pretty private life – until around six months ago when she created her first Instagram account. And because Eminem fans are ruthless, they found her profile – which now has over 270,000 followers!
It seems like Hailie has been enjoying her life out of the limelight over the past 15 years. She is currently studying Psychology at Michigan State University, graduated from her high school with a 3.9 GPA, was crowned Homecoming Queen, has got a steady boyfriend and even has an adorable dog called Lottie. Oh, and she is now super stunning and looks a-ma-zing. And Eminem fans are completely taken aback by how much she’s changed. Well, we don’t blame them…
During his career, Eminem made reference to Hailie in over 20 of his songs, and she seemed like the only happiness in his life after his divorce from his ex-wife (who he made reference to killing in his songs but we’ll leave that for another day). Perhaps unsurprisingly, Eminem came under the public’s scrutiny for his lyrics and his conduct during the ‘00s.
But it seems Hailie Mathers doesn’t want to follow in her father’s footsteps in the music industry. Instead, she’s focusing her time on her studies at University and is hoping to break into the modeling industry. We don’t think she’ll have a problem with that, that’s for sure.
But all in all, we’re glad that Hailie grew up in a relatively normal lifestyle, outside of the public’s eye, because it seems to have done her well.
