Eminem‘s daughter Hailie Jade might not be keeping the Mathers family name for much longer after getting engaged over the weekend.
The 27-year old took to Instagram on Monday (February 6) to announce that she got engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Evan McClintock, over the weekend.
Hailie shared a photo of McClintock’s proposal, which saw him get down on one knee and pop the question, along with pictures of her engagement ring and their champagne-popping celebration to her three million followers.
“casual weekend recap…” she wrote in the caption.”2.4.23. i love you @evanmcclintock11.”
Hailie Jade was born to Eminem and his ex-wife Kim Scott on December 25, 1995, and has been the inspiration behind many of her dad’s songs and lyrics throughout his career.
“My baby girl keeps getting older/ I watch her grow up with pride,” Em rapped on 2002’s “Hailie’s Song.” “My insecurities could eat me alive / But then I see my baby / Suddenly I’m not crazy / It all makes sense when I look into her eyes.”
During an appearance on Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson in 2020, Eminem spoke about how proud he was of Hailie and even referenced her boyfriend at the time.
“Hailie is 23,” he said. “Not babies, nope. Just a boyfriend, and she’s doing good. She’s made me proud for sure. She graduated from college, 3.9. 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’s 26, and then I have a younger one that’s 17 now. So when I think about my accomplishments, that’s probably the thing I’m most proud of — being able to raise kids.”
He added: “It’s definitely important to keep your kids grounded when there’s situations like we have.”
