Before Proposing, Hailie Jade’s Fiancé Asked Eminem, Her Father, for His Blessing
In the 21st century, asking the bride’s father for his blessing before getting engaged is no longer considered an obligatory tradition. Nonetheless, it’s a nice thing to do, showing respect for the girl and her family. Apparently, Evan McClintock feels the same way. After all, before asking Hailie Jade the all-important question, he asked Eminem, his sweetheart’s father, for his blessing.
Hailie Jade’s childhood was not at all simple or fairytale-like. She herself has described it in her podcasts as “surreal.” When she was born, Eminem hadn’t become famous yet, so he had to take any job he could get to provide for his family. As the rapper himself later admitted in an interview, Hailie being born saved him, as he had to step up his efforts to achieve something. By the age of 11, the girl’s life changed dramatically. This was due to the fact that her father had become famous.
Eminem was working very hard at the time, but he didn’t forget to support his daughter. He went to her school events, and she, in turn, studied very hard and even graduated with honors. The girl told the story of how the rapper once got a limo for her and her friend to have a tea party with Disney princesses. There were even different dresses so the girls could really get into the fun.
Hailie decided to study psychology at the University of Michigan. It was there that she met Evan McClintock. He was studying economics. They got together in 2016. Not much is known about the early days of their relationship, but in an interview, Eminem was asked how he felt about Hailie’s relationship. It turned out that the rapper is fully supportive of his daughter and feels very proud of her.
Friends of the couple said that the lovebirds preferred quiet, cosy evenings together at home. And so the next few years passed. Hailie and Evan pursued their careers, occasionally traveling together. The girl started hosting her own podcast. Everything went on as usual until the summer of 2022.
In the summer of 2022, Evan started thinking that it was time to propose to Hailie. In the time coming up to Thanksgiving, he started looking for a ring. For this, he asked his girlfriend’s sister to help him. He later laughed, remembering how she was very helpful in telling him exactly which rings wouldn’t do. Also, knowing how close Hailie was to her father, it was necessary to ask for his blessing. And so Christmas approached.
December 25th is Hailie’s birthday, the perfect time to talk to Eminem about the wedding. Evan was nervous, trying to not make it too obvious, even thinking that if he couldn’t do it on that day, he would have to look for another opportunity, delaying it even more. But he managed to catch a word with the rapper. Luckily, he was fully supportive of the young man.
And as luck would have it, the very next day Evan found the perfect oval-cut diamond ring.
On the 4th of February, 2023, Evan finally got down on one knee and asked for Hailie’s hand in marriage. Of course, she said yes. She found out later all the details about her father’s blessing and the complicated search for the ring when Evan was a guest on her podcast. The couple is now planning their wedding, and all that remains is to wish them a happy life together.
Another couple recently delighted their fans with news of an engagement. Read Rebel Wilson and her fiancée’s story in this article.
