Eminem’s Daughter Is All Grown Up, And She’s Smart And Gorgeous.
Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, has had a tumultuous life. He grew up in the rough part of Detroit where drugs, alcohol, and violence became the perfect inspiration of his famous rap songs. Eminem has depicted the bad boy persona with poetic and misogynist lyrics often aimed at the mother of his only biological child.
His relationship with his two-time wife Kim Scott was just as toxic as the drug filled world the two lived in. Nonetheless, the birth of their daughter Hailie on December 25, 1995 has been the rapper's biggest inspiration, highlighting a softer, gentler side of the man who wrote songs depicting the killing of his ex-wife. But now Hailie is all grown-up and turning out to be a social media darling.
Eminem has called Hailie the main source of his "drive and motivation."
When Hailie was born Eminem was only 23 years old, working as a dishwasher at Gilbert’s Lodge restaurant, making $5.50 an hour.
He admitted during an interview that when Hailie was born he didn't have a place to live.
"I think that really kicked me in the a** harder than anything was knowing, how am I going to raise her," he shared.
"She's always been the driving force for me to stay busy and stay focused," he admitted.
Eminem revealed Hailie is the main reason he fears failure.
"I can't fail, I can't fail...I can't be a failure, I can't have her grow up and not be able to say dad was able to succeed," Eminem explained.
The hardcore rapper says he talks a lot about his daughter because she is all he has in the world.
His daughter has even made it in some of the rapper's famous songs.
"97 Bonnie and Clyde," "Kim," The Way I am," "Hailie's song," "My Dad's Gone Crazy," "Cleaning Out My Closet," "When I'm Gone," "Elevator," and "Going Through Changes," among others.
