Eminem’s daughter Hailie Jade Scott Mathers is 19 years old now. It seems like just yesterday we were watching Eminem and Kim duke it out in the pages of the tabloid press, and watching Hailie along for that ride.
The image most still hold of Eminem’s daughter is a lot like the image we have of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s daughter Francis Bean: a little girl in her daddy’s arms or on her mommy’s hip, caught in the camera eye.
But Hailie Mathers has graduated from high school, was homecoming queen at her high school, and has over 16,000 followers on Twitter. Her following is strong enough that she has trouble with fraud account on Twitter and Instagram, luring people in with fake tweets and pics.
Back in 2011, Eminem told Rolling Stone that being there for his kids was incredibly important to him.
“[Being a father means] not missing things. If there’s anything important going on, regardless of what it is, I’m there. Helping them with homework when you can.”

Eminem’s daughter has appeared in lyrics to his songs more than once. Most famously, he did an entire song dedicated to her that he called “Hailie’s Song”. Within the song, he actually uses Hailie’s own laughter. The lyrics talk about how he has had so much difficulty being with Kim, and would love to turn back the clock and never have been with ehr, except for the fact that he now has his daughter Hailie.
I got my baby, baby the only lady that I adore, Hailie.
But when I see my baby
Suddenly I’m not crazy
It all makes sense when I look into her eyes
Back when Ja Rule insulted Eminem’s daughter in a song of his own, Hailie’s daddy struck back with a line from his song “Toy Soldiers”
There's a certain line you just don't cross and he crossed it. I heard him say Hailie's name on a song and I just lost it… – Eminem

But Hailie takes care of herself now.
