In celebration of Valentine’s Day in 2022, Hailie made an Instagram tribute post to McClintock. The post included a photo of the adorable couple kissing with a beautiful sunset in the background. Hailie captioned it, “yesterday & everyday.”
What Does Eminem Think Of The Newly Engaged Couple
While Eminem is usually very private about his family and personal life, he’s previously spoken openly about Hailie and McClintock before. In March 2020, the 50-year-old had an interview with Mike Tyson on his podcast, Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson.
During the interview, Tyson asked Eminem if his daughter, Hailie, had any kids of her own. The legendary artist, whose real name is Marshall Mathers III, replied per Page Six, “Just a boyfriend. She’s doing good. She’s made me proud for sure.”
The “The Real Slim Shady” rapper has previously sung about his daughters, particularly Hailie, in several of his rap songs. A good example is the award-winning music “Mockingbird,” which could be considered a tribute to Hailie and Alaina.
