Who Is Hailie Jade Mathers? Eminem's daughter, who turned 25 on Christmas, is lifestyle and fitness influencer
Eminem's daughter is all grown up and how! Hailie Jade Mathers, who is an Instagram influencer, celebrated her 25th birthday on Christmas Day by posting a photo of herself in a strapless black dress.
In the photo posted on Friday, December 25, she stood in front of white curtains and gold “25” balloons wearing the gorgeous dress with her left arm on her hip and flashing a wide grin. "25 on the 25th,” she captioned the post along with champagne glasses and sparkle emojis. "Even though this isn’t the ‘golden’ birthday I originally would’ve planned, I know I will still make 25 my year regardless. I feel so blessed & lucky to be here and at this place in my life,” she wrote.
She wrapped up her message by stating: “Merry Christmas & happy holidays everyone!!” and included a Christmas tree and heart emojis. It was unclear if anyone was invited to her birthday bash, given that the world is in the middle of battling a pandemic right now.
Hailie is the daughter of 48-year-old Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, and his ex-wife Kimberly Scott. The couple wed in 1999 and four years after Hailie was born, they split in 2001. The on-again-off-again pair again tied the knot in January 2006 but filed for divorce in April that year.
Hailie has a social media following of over 2 million and her Instagram profile description states: “Attempting to curate a feed that accurately represents my life and is somehow still aesthetically pleasing.” She often posts photos and videos about her lifestyle and projects, including fitness. She took a hiatus from social media in May until early December, when she posted a mirror selfie with the message: “Does the explanation ‘2020’ work for everyone here?”
Back in March, Hailie's father gushed about her in an interview with Mike Tyson for an episode of the former heavyweight boxer's podcast, 'Hotboxin'. "No babies, [but] she has a boyfriend," the rapper shared with Tyson and his co-hosts. "But she’s doing good. She’s made me proud for sure," he shared. "She’s graduated from college, had a 3.9 [GPA]," he added proudly of his daughter's achievement. Hailie graduated with a psychology degree from Michigan State University in 2018.
Eminem also reflected back on his past music when he rapped about his daughter back when she was a little girl and how much his daughter has grown during the course of his career. "I have a niece that I have helped raise too that’s pretty much like a daughter to me, and she is 26. And I have a younger one that’s 17 now," he continued.
He added that despite having achieved heights of fame, his biggest achievement has been as a parent. "When I think about my accomplishments, probably the thing I’m the most proud of is being able to raise kids," he explained. He also talked about the importance of ensuring that kids don't become spoiled by fame, money or privilege. "It’s important to keep your kids grounded when they’re in a situation like I have," he shared. "People also think too that money just buys happiness -- that is absolutely not the truth. You’ve got to be right inside, otherwise none of this sh*t means nothing."
