International rap sensation Eminem was known for writing lyrics about his daughter Hayley at the height of his career and is believed to have written 20 of the songs you mention.
However, she’s not the only one of his daughters to appear in the 50-year-old’s music — references to “Lainey” in the lyrics are to his eldest daughter, Alaina. The 29-year-old is the biological daughter of the late Don Scott, who was the twin sister of Kim Scott, Eminem’s ex-wife.
Dawn battled drug addiction throughout the 1990s and after Alaina was born in May 1993, Kim and the rapper, whose real name was Marshall Mathers, took in the baby to give her a stable upbringing.
Eminem and Kim continued to raise Alaina alongside their biological daughter Hayley and Kim’s youngest child Stevie, despite their on-and-off relationship. The couple is now divorced.
In 2016, Dawn, who was still struggling with addiction, was found dead after a heroin overdose.
Alaina Scott, 29 (pictured with fiancé Matt Mueller) lives in Michigan after being taken in by Eminem and Kim Scott as a child due to her mother’s battle with drug addiction. Now, after her mother’s death in 2016, she’s running a book club, planning to go back to college after being the first person in her family to earn a college degree, and planning her wedding to Matt.
Alaina now lives a healthy life in Michigan with her fiancé, Matt Mueller, and their two hot dogs. She remains incredibly close to Hailie, who often appears on her Instagram account, and is a self-confessed bookworm who runs a book club.
Recently she has been talking about her aunt and uncle being also her “mother and father” and how her cousins are also her “sisters”.
Her Instagram account also offers glimpses into her life, with the PR executive posting a photo of her dad wearing a T-shirt from her Alpha Delta Pi club at university which she joked was the “best dad.”
Through her social media account, she also discussed her battles with depression and anxiety and talked about her biological mother.

Eminem (real name Marshall Mathers) and Kim Scott adopted Alaina in the ’90s and continued to raise her together even after their on-and-off relationship ended for good.
Alina’s biological mother, Dawn Scott, who was Kim Scott’s twin sister, sadly passed away in 2016 from a heroin overdose.
On Mother’s Day last year, she posted about her relationship with Dawn, writing, “As a child who lost his mother to addiction and because of that was a strained relationship, I often felt the loss before I really had to grieve my mom’s death.”
I used to be so angry and hurt because of all of this, but as I get older I can’t help but realize how much work it takes to be a good mom.
Sometimes our parents get hurt and search and try to find themselves, too — all while trying to raise the little ones. A lot of times they really do their best, even if their best isn’t great.
In 2018, two years after Dawn’s death and with her 43rd birthday approaching, Alaina posted an old photo of her mom to Instagram and wrote, “I always miss you so much during this time of year, mom.” I can’t believe you would have turned 43 in 3 days.
In December 2021, Alaina revealed to her followers that she was engaged to Matt and shared cute photos of the proposal.
I wrote a caption on the photos: this moment. This life… yes a hundred times. I love you.’
While not much is known about Lainey compared to her younger sister, she did reveal details about her personal and professional life in a sit down conversation on her sister’s podcast, Just a little shady.
When the sisters sit down to chat, Lainey reveals that she moved out of the family home when she was 18 and went to a few different universities, studying subjects from art to hairdressing, until she finally got her degree in communications and public relations.
In the podcast, which was recorded in November, Alaina announced that she was about to “go back to school” to study more cosmetology courses and said she was looking forward to studying again as she turns 30. She also discusses her upcoming wedding, after he recently got engaged to Matt.
It’s yes: The adopted daughter of rapper Eminem has confirmed her engagement to long-term partner Matt Mueller after he proposed on Monday.

‘I don’t want (Matt) to help too much with the wedding… you know how I am,’ she confesses. I know exactly what I like, and how I like it.
Hailey revealed that she was scheduled to be a maid of honor at Lainey’s wedding, and said she didn’t have a lot of duties to fulfill her part because Lainey had a hand in everything.
With Alaina’s wedding approaching, she reveals that she wants an “intimate” ceremony with a carefully curated guest list.
Speaking of the “little family,” Alaina said she was facing a conundrum when she compiled the guest list and noted, “My cousins are my sisters, my aunt and uncle, just like my mom and dad.”
The sisters also discuss Lainey’s story Book clubwhich started during the pandemic when they ran out of things to do.
Twice a month, she posts discussion threads in her forum for each book, which have had a large following of commentary.
During the podcast, the siblings reminisce about their childhood, with Hayley admitting that she and her friends were spying on Alaina and telling her parents what the older brother had said.
In response, Alaina laughed, saying, “I always got into trouble.”
Without naming her parents, she gave insight into how they raised her in a story about her birthday party when she was about 12 and in sixth grade.
“I was having a pool party and I wanted to wear a two-piece bathing suit and I wasn’t allowed to,” she said.
Alaina also mentioned getting a “C” on a progress report at school and getting into trouble with her parents.
I had to get a tutor and I couldn’t go anywhere Hayley went. you remember.
Hayley agreed that they both grew up in a home where education was paramount, with Alaina being the first in the family to go to university.
The sisters reveal that Alina has held student council positions and several extra-curricular clubs while at school and excelled at them.
