How many kids does Eminem have? The Grammy Award-winning rapper has adopted several kids, including Alaina Marie, the daughter of Kim’s twin.

Grammy winner Eminem cemented himself as one of the most successful rappers of all time with records like “Encore,” “The Marshall Mathers LP,” and “The Slim Shady LP.”

The first-ever hip-hop artist to snatch up an Academy Award — for “Lose Yourself” from 8 Mile, no less — Eminem spent the early years of his career breaking record after record. His career achievements are well-documented, but what about his personal life? How many kids does he have?

Who are Eminem’s kids?

He has a biological daughter named Hailie Jade Mathers, 27, and adopted two kids: Alaina Mathers, 30, and 21-year-old Whitney Scott Mathers.

Eminem (whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III) started dating Kimberly Anne Scott in the 1980s. Kim and her twin sister, Dawn Scott, reportedly ran away from home to escape their abusive stepfather. Kim met Eminem when she was 13. He was 15 at the time.

The same year, Eminem invited Kim to live with him and his mom, Debbie Nelson. Eminem and Kim likely started dating in 1989. Eminem dropped out of Lincoln High School around the same time; some believe the decision had to do with Kim.

Eminem and Kim welcomed a daughter named Hailie Jade Scott on December 25, 1995, in Detroit, Michigan. Eminem’s debut album, “Infinite,” came out in 1996. He achieved his first real breakthrough in 1999, with the release of the positively blasphemous “The Slim Shady LP.”

Eminem and Kim got married for the first time in 1999. Eminem reportedly caught Kim and a man named John Guerra mid-kiss in 2000, and the couple separated the same year. The divorce was finalized in October 2001.

During the divorce, Eminem and Kim agreed to have shared custody of Hailie Jade.


Who is Hailie Jade Scott? Hailie Jade is the only biological child and daughter of Eminem.

The 27-year-old has always been the light of her father’s life, and has been mentioned in several of his songs, including “Mockingbird” and “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,” he raps on the 2002 hit.

In 2001, Eminem said his daughter was “a real wakeup call” for him. “She made me get my ass in gear — to make something of my life and try 10 quadrillion times harder than I had before,” he told British publication Q. “Everything that I am doing right now is for Hailie … the money — it’s for her college.”

In exchange, Hailie has been known to support her dad and his career, even celebrating with her famous father when he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in November 2022. The two attended the ceremony in Los Angeles wearing coordinating black leather jackets.

Hailie graduated from the University of Michigan in 2018 with a psychology degree and an impressive 3.9 GPA, per her LinkedIn. “She’s made me proud for sure,” he said on Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson in 2020, adding that she has “no babies” and is focusing on her career. “Just a boyfriend. She’s doing good.”

She later started a podcast called Just a Little Shady alongside her longtime love, Evan McClintock. The two first started dating in 2016 and got engaged in February 2023.


Eminem adopted Kim’s daughter Stevie when he and Kim briefly reconciled in the mid-2000s.

Kim and her new partner, Eric Hartter, welcomed daughter Stevie Laine formerly called Whitney on April 16, 2002.

Eminem and Kim reunited in the mid-2000s, with Eminem going on to adopt Stevie in 2005. Eminem and Kim tied the knot in January 2006, eventually filing for divorce the same year. Their biological father reportedly passed away in 2019. Stevie came out as bisexual in October 2017, according to Daily Mail. She shared she was non-binary in August 2019, aged 19, per the Independent. She made the announcement on social media.

Stevie is in a long-distance relationship with TikToker Declan Jace and often posts cute videos when they’re together.


Eminem also adopted his niece, Alaina Marie, 30.

Alaina Marie Scott was born on Feb. 22, 1993, in Michigan to Kim’s sister Dawn Scott.

Eminem adopted Alaina Marie in the 2000s. Kim’s twin sister, Dawn, had a substance addiction, limiting her ability to take care of her kid. Eminem took Alaina under her wings. She is frequently described as his “forgotten daughter,” as many fans aren’t aware of her presence in the rapper’s life. Alaina’s mom, Dawn, passed away in 2016, after periods spent without having a home. Some claim the cause of death was a heroin overdose.

“I have full custody of my niece,” the rapper told Rolling Stone about the now-30-year-old in 2004. “My niece has been a part of my life ever since she was born. Me and Kim pretty much had her, she’d live with us wherever we was at.” In 2020, he said Alaina, whom he often calls Lainey in the lyrics of his songs, is “like a daughter” to him.

Eminem name-drops Alaina in his 2004 hit, “Mockingbird,” rapping, “Lainey, uncle’s crazy ain’t he? / Yeah, but he loves you, girl and you better know it / We’re all we got in this world.”

Alaina attended Oakland University, where she got a bachelor of arts in communication with a double minor in public relations and advertising.

According to Instagram, she lives in Detroit, is passionate about body positivity and feminism, and runs a book club.

These days, Alaina is a travel blogger who often shares her adventures with followers on Instagram. On December 14, 2021, she got engaged to her longtime love, Matt Moeller. “This moment. this life. Yes a hundred times over. I LOVE YOU,” she captioned a set of photos from the couple’s rooftop proposal, which included a snap that showed off her beautiful emerald-cut diamond ring.

On June 9, 2023, Alaina married Moeller in an outdoor ceremony in Detroit, Michigan. Many friends and family members were in attendance, including Hailie, who served as a bridesmaid. Days later, Alaina shared photos on Instagram from her special day, including a silly snap of the happy couple showing off their rings and another picture of the bridal party posing together.

But the wedding celebrations don’t end there! Alaina has shown support for Hailie, who is also preparing to tie the knot. After her sister’s February 2023 engagement, Alaina posted a sweet tribute on Instagram, writing in the caption, “my sis is finally engaged? there’s not many moments in life that leave you feeling pure bliss, but this has to be one of them.”

Alaina also shouted out her sister’s accomplishments, adding, “She’s crushing her career right now, crushing being one of my Maid of Honors, crushing her podcast, and everything else that she touches. I have no doubt you’ll crush being a wife, too. You deserve this and more Hay. Being able to plan my own wedding and now experience this with you takes the cake.”
