SHE is mentioned in no less than 20 of her dad’s songs, so it’s no surprise that Hailie Jade Scott knew to handle fame from an early age.
Now 27, the daughter of hip hop icon Eminem is making waves of her own, and has just announced her engagement to her long-time boyfriend.
The influencer – thought to be worth as much as $2million – has tied the knot with Evan McClintock after six years.
While the couple keep their relationship out of the spotlight, Hailie isn’t afraid to share the rest of her super glamorous life with her 3million Instagram fans.
Despite being the daughter of a megastar, she’s also worked hard to carve out a niche of her own, striking brand deals with giants like Puma and launching her own podcast series.
Here, we take a look at how she went from the little girl in her father’s songs to a social media starlet.
Puma deals & Gucci bags
After studying psychology at Michigan State University, Hailie established herself as an Instagram influencer – and hasn’t done badly with over three million followers.
She is a brand ambassador for Puma, joining the likes of Dua Lipa and Thierry Henry, and shows off their trainers while rocking expensive jewellery and designer Gucci handbags.
Jetting off to incredible destinations like Hawaii, her social media is packed full of snaps of sandy beaches, swimming pools and stunning ocean views.
Last year, she also watched her dad take to the stage at the halftime show of Super Bowl LVI alongside Snoop Dogg, Mary J Blige and Kendrick Lamar.
On her social media platforms, there are hardly any mentions of her famous dad – although she does have a podcast called Just A Little Shady, a reference to Eminem’s Slim Shady alter ego.
Her podcast covers a wide range of subjects including pop culture and shares stories about her own experiences.
She is also a fitness enthusiast and used her Instagram page to share exercise tips during the pandemic.
Hailie’s engagement came after a six-year romance with her boyfriend Evan, who she met in 2016 while studying at university.
While Eminem is famously protective over his only biological daughter, a source previously told Mail Online that Evan was welcomed into the family with open arms.
The source added: “She enjoys keeping a low profile, walking her dog and going to fitness classes, hanging out with her friends and holidaying with Evan.”
In 2020, when asked by former boxer Mike Tyson if his daughter had any babies yet, Eminem replied: “No babies. Just a boyfriend. She’s doing good. She’s made me proud for sure.”
Evan works as an enterprise growth executive at Scout, a tech firm, which works with high-end luxury brands and government entities.
Like his new fiancée, Evan is a dog lover and shares an adorable pooch with Hailie called Wolf.
On the premiere episode of her podcast, Hailie opened up about what it was like to grow up with Eminem as her father.
When her childhood friend and co-host Brittany Ednie said she remembered going on the star’s tour bus, Hailie said: “Obviously we were in a normal public school, we never thought anything was different.”
“I don’t know, we had so many normal experiences that when something like that happened, I thought like, ‘Oh, everybody else does this too.’ Not realizing that like, no, that’s freaking weird.
“It’s so fun to look back, when we have these conversations here, wherever, like thinking back as an adult, like, ‘Wow, that’s actually so surreal.’ Those memories of me thinking those were normal things, now I look back and I’m like, ‘Holy crap, that was cool.’”
Hailie also recalled a time when her father sent them to Disney World in a limousine so he could have some peace of mind to work.
But her childhood was not always rosy. In several songs, Eminem referenced his troubled relationship with his ex-wife, Kim Scott, who he married in 1999 but divorced two years later.
In 2017, Eminem apologised to his ex in the song Bad Husband, admitting he regrets taking so many shots at her through his music and making their family life so public.
He also apologised to Hailie in the song Castle, where he expresses remorse for being so open about her and the issues he had with her mother.
