Hailie Mathers’ Fiancé Reveals How He Asked Eminem for His Daughter’s Hand in Marriage
Eminem’s daughter, Hailie Jade Mathers, is all grown up and officially preparing to walk down the aisle.
After dating for six years, the 27-year-old is newly engaged to long-time boyfriend Evan McClintock, 27. But, before getting down on one knee, McClintock asked for the legendary rapper’s blessing beforehand.
Appearing on Mathers’ Just A Little Shady podcast, Eminem’s soon-to-be son-in-law revealed details of the preparation for the big moment. He said he had been planning to propose since last summer, but it wasn’t until Feb. 4 that he asked Mathers for her hand in marriage.
McClintock looked forward to talking to her father about the proposal. Since Mathers’ birthday is on Christmas, McClintock thought it was the perfect time to speak to the icon.
“Over the holidays, I was looking for an opportunity not to make it too obvious. I saw your dad go downstairs, and I’m like, ‘I gotta do it right now, or I’m not doing it today, and I’m gonna have to schedule another time,” McClintock said.
He followed Eminem downstairs as he was getting the birthday cake and said, “I made it happen.”
McClintock found the engagement ring just one day after talking to Em. Mathers’ family was in on the engagement as her older sister, Alaina Scott Mathers, 29, helped McClintock find the ring. “It’s funny, so your sister really helped me out, and she basically told me what for sure not to get,” he said.
Mathers took to her Instagram to announce the exciting news. She posted a gallery of photos, included McClintock on one knee, captioning the post “casual weekend recap… 😭💗 2.4.23 💍 i love you @evanmcclintock11.”
