Eminem, real name Marshall Bruce Mathers III had a tough upbringing but has always done his best to try and make sure his children have a better life.
The rapper is the father to three children, Hailie Jade Scott, Alaina Marie Mathers and Stevie Mathers.
Despite Eminem’s love for keeping a low profile, he can’t seem to help talking about his daughters in his songs.
The musician has released over 22 songs in which he makes references to his daughters, including Going Through Changes and When I’m Gone.
He shares all three of his kids with ex-wife Kimberley Anne Scott.
The on-again off-again couple have had a rocky relationship over the years meeting in the late 90s, and tying the knot in 1999, but then divorcing just two years later.
They then remarried in 2006 but Eminem filed for divorce a year later, agreeing joint custody of Hailie.
In his song Going Through Changes, Eminem raps: "Hailie, this one is for you, Whitney and Alaina too / I still love your mother, that’ll never change."
For Eminem’s 49th birthday we looked at his relationship with his three kids, and who they grew up to be.

Hailie is Eminem’s only biological child, born to him and Kim on Christmas Day in 1995.
She is currently in a long-term relationship with Evan McClintock.
Last year, Eminem told Mike Tyson on the podcast, Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson, that Hailie has "made me proud for sure”.
"No babies, she has a boyfriend, but she’s doing good," he went on.
Since graduating from Michigan State University in 2018 with a degree in psychology, she has become a very successful Instagram influencer, gaining over 2.2 million followers.
She's also been the inspiration for many of Eminem's tracks, most explicitly, Hailie's Song, in which he says she kept him from going “crazy".
The lyrics include: "My baby girl (girl) (Hailie laughs) keeps gettin’ older (der) / I watch her grow up with pride”.
Her vocals are featured in the track My Dad’s Gone Crazy.

Alaina is the is the biological daughter of Kim’s twin sister Dawn Scott.
She was adopted at a young age by Eminem and Kim while Dawn struggled with substance abuse, which eventually led to her fatal overdose in 2016.
While technically, Eminem’s niece, the pair have a special bond and act like father and daughter.
Eminem told Rolling Stone: "My niece has been a part of my life ever since she was born.
"Me and Kim pretty much had her, she’d live with us wherever we was at.”
Alaina goes by the nickname Lainey and often takes to Instagram to document her romance with boyfriend Matt Moeller and her travel adventures.
She graduated from Oakland University in 2017 and these days is a mental health and body positivity advocate.
In his 2004 song Mockingbird, Eminem raps about his bond with Alaina, saying: “Lainey, uncle’s crazy ain’t he, yeah but he loves you girl and you better know it.”
He later adds: “Lainey I’m talking to you too, Daddy’s still here. I like the sound of that, yeah, it’s got a ring to it, don’t it?”

Stevie was born in 2002 to Kim and her ex-boyfriend Eric Hartter who she briefly dated, but step-dad Eminem decided to take their relationship to the next step and officially adopt Stevie after he got back together with his ex-wife in 2005.
Stevie’s biological father, who was a professional tattoo artist, had a several run-ins with the law and was in and out of prison throughout his relationship with Stevie
He unfortunately passed away at the age of 40 last year.
Earlier this year, Stevie came out as non-binary and changed their name to Stevie Laine.
They wrote: “call me stevie (they/she/he)” which was liked by their sister Hailie Jade.
They also posted a transformation video which highlighted their progression over the years, with the words: “Watch me become more comfortable with myself” and “forever growing and changing” written atop the video.
They also included the hashtags #genderfluid #bi and #nonbinary throughout their posts online to further establish their new identity online.
