“She was born on December 25 1995, -- Christmas. She is the most important thing in my life. I don’t swear
in her prescence. She comes before anything else. You can hear her voice on ‘my dad's gone crazy’. I’d love
her to become an actress. You know when you build a booger castle with your daughter --- that’s quality time. It’s
actually what we live in now, and we built it ourselves. I try to keep her sheltered from most of the bullshit. When September
11 happened. I just didn’t know how to explain it to her. She heard about it at School.”
“Im a father before anything, im a father before I pick up the mic im a father before im eminem”
“When I look into my baby girls eye’s I know I could never leave her”
“She’s so cute and so smart she’s special to me you know, I want her to know im never going to leave
“She’s so cute she hangs out in the studio sometimes we have fun together, she’s like my little homie
“My daughter is growing up and im trying to set an example for her”
“I swear to you she was so natural at it, I would to tell her something one time and she would do it. She would
do all the little sound effects and whatever she was geeked to be on a song”
“Hailie’s my little girl so she’s just goofy too she
just runs around saying things. One day we were in the studio doing a song and she was like, 'Somebody please help me, I think
my dad's gone crazy.' I was like, 'Hailie, what did you say?' She said it again and she was like, 'Daddy I wanna say it on
the mic.' "
“I did this so I could be a family to Kim and Hailie and raise my daughter the right way my family is all ive
ever fought for, and all ive ever tried to protect. The only thing im scared of it being taken away from my little girl”
“Were put here to make Children. That’s the reality of it.
We’re here to reproduce. And I reproduced. So now my life is for her”
“I want to try and get her into some kind of acting or something, she got this little personality that’s
incredible, she love’s to talk she’ll say shit out of the blue, big words that I didn’t even know. She’ll
look at it as a joke”.
“She say’s daddy you don’t have to get me something everywhere we go, but I can’t stop myself
from spoiling her. I don’t know whether it’s good or bad. I’ll find out when she’s a teenager”
“Im never gonna hold back on expressing how I feel about my daughter”
“Hailie is my reason for being”
“When my daughter was born I was so scared I wouldn’t be able to raise her and support her as a father
should. Her first two Christmases we had nothing, but this last Christmas she had so many fucking presents under the tree.
She kept opening them saying this ones for me too? My daughter wasn’t born with a silver spoon in her mouth but she’s
got one now”
"I thank her
everyday, everydai i wake up i thank her"
"I'm not as
religious as I should be, but we do try and instill it in our daughter. We try to teach her wrong from right, having been
as wrong as we've been."
"I did right by my
"I'd die for my daughter in a hearbeat"
“I want to raise my daughter the right way and not cut out on her like my father did to me all I can do is be
the best father I can and instill in Hailie the best values because I do care.”
“My daughter is the closet thing to my heart”
“People used to ask me do you let your daughter listen to your music and it used to be when she couldn’t
pick up on it – yeah I do. When she didn’t understand it all but now she’s starting to understand all the
words so I can’t really play it around her. She picks up on it and I don’t want her to get the wrong idea because
she’s not going to know how to take it, not so much the words it’s the anger in my voice. I don’t bring
that around her. That’s one thing I don’t want her to see or experience. Being this age the only thing I want
her to worry about it what she’s going to play with today? Is she going to play with dolls or color something?”
“The Biggest thing hanging over my head is if I was to go to jail, what do I say to her? What do I really say?
‘Daddy was bad. I’m sorry but im going away for a little while’? Im sure she’s used to me being gone,
but not a longtime stretch. Like a year, two years something like that. Im sure she’s not used to that. It’s a
week or two weeks here and there and I always end up back home.”
“Me and Hailie have an understanding, when she hears cuss words she knows they are bad and not to repeat them.
She’s pretty good at that believe it or not she is a happy little girl. She’s always got a smile on her face,
always up beat. She’s the most important thing in my life and I want to make sure she has everything I never did in
“My worst fear was picturing the look on Hailie’s face if I had to tell her I was going away --- the look
on Hailie’s face coming to visit me in jail and not being able to touch, to hold. You know like fuck the divorce fuck
everything, how am I going to explain it to this little girl i've struggled all these years to keep from situations like this,
that im about to do this to her?. I never told her anything because if there was a slim chance that I could get off I didn’t
want to put her through that emotionally. She hates when I go away, anytime”
“Im responsible for my little girl and that’s all I give a fuck about”
“Eminem: No more kids. I'm good with Hailie. I'll spoil her and give
her everything I never had. I have other family members that I take care of and want to take care of, but as far as kids,
I'm cool. No more, one is enough.”
