For those who don’t know: Whitney is Kim’s second child with Eric Hartter.
Kim got pregnant in 2001 and Whitney was born on May the 26th, 2002.
Things went quite complicated when Kim went back with Marshall, six months after the birth of her daughter. Despite the fact Eric Hartter, an ex convict on the run who was facing drug charges, had few chances to ever obtain his daughter’s custody or even some visitation rights, Eric’s mom, Mary was suing for Whitney’s custody.
When he went back with Kim, Eminem always had the will to raise Whitney as his own daughter.
Some people were curious about the line taken out of when I’m Gone:
« Hailie just smiles and winks at her little sister ».
They wondered about who the little sister mentioned in the song could possibly be, since Eminem referred to Alaina as his second daughter. Whitney is Hailie’s half sister and the little sister mentioned in Eminem’s song.
A few years ago, Marshall adopted his niece Alaina who is Dawn (Kim’s twin sister)’s daughter. She became his daughter legally and goes by the surname Mathers.
The Mathers family might be enriched with a new member soon, if the info revealed by the following website is true.
Eminem recently declared that he intended to remarry Kim. Apparently, he also wants to give Whitney his name and to raise her as his own child.
Marshall loves the little girl and wants her to be full part of his family:
“I’m in love with that girl, man. She’s so sweet and funny”. (Eminem)
Three daughters for Marshall? This might soon become a reality.
For those who doubted it, Eminem is very much family oriented. He is a wonderful family man, a dedicated dad and good big brother, which fully honors him.
