He explained everything that happened in detail with Hailie during an episode of Hailie’s podcast, Just A Little Shady. Evan had been thinking about proposing since last summer.  

When Did Evan Propose To Hailie? 

“Over the holidays, I was looking for an opportunity not to make it too obvious,” Evan explained. He finally got an opportunity to pop the question on February 4th.

Unlike his daughter, the rapper was already aware of Evan’s plans to propose. His future son-in-law had taken him aside for a moment to ask for his blessing on Christmas Day.

Hailie’s birthday falls on Christmas Day, making it the perfect day for Evan to ask Eminem – or Marshall Mathers which is the rapper’s real name – a moment to talk.  

Evan Recalled How Nervous He Had Been  


Hailie’s fiancé had watched Eminem go downstairs and decided to follow. “‘I gotta do it right now, or I’m not doing it today,” Evan remembered thinking.

It was only after Alaina, Hailie’s sister, came to help that Evan managed to find the perfect ring for his future wife. 

How Did Alaina Help? 

Alaina and Hailie are known to be close. According to McClintock, Alaina basically told him what not to get. For confused people, that’s a good way to help them get started.
