It was time to spill the tea on everything engagement for Hailie Jade Scott and her fiancé Evan McClintock. During a recent episode of Scott’s podcast, “Just a Little Shady,” the couple told the story of their engagement and how McClintock got Scott’s famous dad’s blessing.
Scott’s longtime boyfriend asked for her hand in marriage on February 4, and of course, she said, “yes.” So now the two are revealing how it all came together, from choosing the ring to asking Eminem for his approval.
Let’s Talk Engagement!
During a recent podcast episode while premiering a new set, Scott and McClintock reveal all the behind-the-scenes details of their recent engagement.
Scott talked about how “peaceful” McClintock is usually and wanted to know if he was that peaceful and calm while planning to pop the question. “You have to tell us all the details because honestly, I don’t know everything,” Scott said. “Can you tell us about this process? When did you get the ring? When did you know you were going to propose?”
McClintock explained that he wasn’t that calm while planning, and it was early summer when he first thought about seriously proposing. “That’s when I first started thinking about it, thinking about potential plans to do it,” he explained. “I got the ring the day after Christmas.”
She then asked if he went into a store to pick out the ring or if he ordered it. “So, I shopped around between Thanksgiving and Christmas. That was in-store,” he said. “Trying to pull off going to the store, I would give excuses.” He continued to explain that he didn’t find anything while shopping in the stores, and her sister ended up helping him out by telling him what not to get and pointed him in the right direction.
Evan Revealed How He Asked Eminem For His Blessing
The conversation then turned to how they met and segued into how McClintock asked Eminem for his blessing. The couple has been dating for about six or seven years and ran in the same circles of friends before dating. The two then went to the same college before becoming a couple.
“It’s been a long time. We really started officially dating in college,” she said. “So, you went through the whole thing, you went through the whole process. You asked for permission, just at like a family holiday,” Scott said.
McClintock jumped in to tell his story. “Over the holidays, I was just looking for an opportunity not to make it too obvious,” he said. “I saw your dad go downstairs, I’m like, alright I gotta do it right now or I’m not doing it today I’m gonna have to schedule to do it some other time, so I followed him downstairs.”
Scott said she had no clue about what was going on. “Thankfully, at the time that the actual engagement was being planned, according to you, none of my friends even gave me the slightest clue,” she said. “It got to the point where I was like it wasn’t even on my mind because I was like I will know if he’s planning it. Like I just thought that I was gonna know, and it got to the point where I was like I don’t think he’s ever doing it.”
