Living With A “Meshed Family” Was What Eminem’s Adopted Daughter Described As Her “Normal”

Fans of Eminem are familiar with Hailie, Slim Shady’s adored daughter, thanks to frequent references to her in his songs. The adoring father sang about Hailie and was outspoken about his issues with her mother Kim in songs like Hailie’s Song, My Dad’s Gone Crazy, Kim, 97 Bonnie & Clyde, Beautiful and My Darling.

Hailie Jade Mathers, however, is not the rapper’s only child. The rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, adopted Alaina Marie Mathers in addition to his own. Alaina, who was born in 1993 and was the twin sister of Eminem’s ex-wife Kim, joined the family in 2016 after her mother, Dawn, passed away.

Despite the fact that the pair permanently split up in 2006, he decided to adopt Alaina Marie without any second thoughts. The 29-year-old manages to maintain a calm life away from the spotlight despite being raised by a famous rapper. Alaina does, however, bring up her family and isn’t embarrassed to talk about it. According to UNILAD, Alaina described what it was like to have two sets of parents in one post to her Instagram story.

She had written at the time, “I didn’t start calling my aunt and uncle mum and dad until I was older but having a meshed family is what’s always been normal to me. Side note; just because you birth a child or provide the sperm for a child doesn’t make you a parent.”
