Eminem’s daughter, Hailie Scott, is now a homecoming queen.
Scott was crowned Homecoming Queen of Chippewa Valley High School in Clinton Township, Mich., on Friday, Oct. 4, after students and faculty voted for the court, the Macomb Daily reported. Her famous father was apparently on hand to see her win and was very “proud” of his not-so-little girl, whom members of the community described as a “smart, athletic, and caring young woman.”
“Hailie came out with her mother Kim (Scott) when she was introduced with all the other kids but her father watched from inside the school because he didn’t want to cause a scene — he wanted Hailie to have her own moment,” a parent of a Chippewa Valley student told the Macomb Daily.
Media Take Out posted a screen grab from an ABC broadcast of the high school event, showing Scott wearing a glittering crown and holding a bouquet of flowers.
The photo quickly circulated among fans online.

Eminem, who is a native of Macomb County, has spoken about his love for and devotion to his now 17-year-old daughter, explaining that fatherhood comes first.
“I’m a father first, before anything,” he previously said. “I’m a father before I’m a rapper. So, you know, my daughter comes first no matter what. If there’s important things going on in her life that I need to be there for, then I’ll drop what I’m doing or reschedule around it.”
