If you came of age in the late ’90s or early-aughts, then you heard an Eminem song or two (or 50) in your day. And you also likely remember that he was doting dad to daughter Hailie (who was also muse for his 2002 song, “Mockingbird.”) And now, Hailie Mathers is all grown up, and we’re feeling slightly ancient.
And not only is Hailie basically a full-fledged adult now, but she graduated high school with a 3.9 grade-point average and is currently a psychology major in college (go, girl!). Oh, and she’s absolutely gorgeous. We genuinely can’t believed this young woman is the little girl Eminem sang about all those years ago. WHY IS TIME SO WEIRD?!
But enough talk, here’s a few snaps from Hailie’s Insta account (prepare to have your mind blown):
And here she is with her BF:
We know, we know. Kids grow up. It’s the circle of life. Yada, yada, yada. But our last memories of Hailee are basically this:
So please, excuse our minor morning freakout, but it’s Monday, and we weren’t ready for this.
And if you, like us, have now been thrown into a spiral of early-’90s Eminem nostalgia, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the 2002 video for Mockingbird, which featured a ton of real-life baby footage of Hailie.
Growing up with an uber-famous parent can’t be easy (nor can having the world know about your parents’ various relationship ups and downs), so we’re super glad to see that it looks like Hailie is genuinely thriving.
Also, we wish we could promise this is the last time we ever freak out over the fact that a celebrity’s child is all grown up. But why make promises we can’t keep?
