Eminem’s genderfluid child opens up about their love life

Eminem’s younger child, Stevie Laine Mathers [above right], has opened up about being in their first, serious, adult relationship.

Stevie, 21, went on the podcast of their older sister, Hailie Jade Mathers [above left]. Hailie and Stevie share the same mom: Eminem’s ex, Kim Scott.

Eminem is Hailie’s biological father. She was born in 1995. After Eminem and Kim divorced in 2001, Kim entered into another relationship and gave birth to Stevie. Kim later re-married Eminem and he adopted Stevie in 2005. Eminem and Kim divorced within a year of marrying. Stevie’s biological father died in 2019.

If the family history is a little complicated, what’s clear is that Stevie and Hailie enjoy a sibling bond.

Hailie gently prodded Stevie—who identifies as genderfluid and uses he/she/they pronouns—about their love life. Followers of Stevie on social media will know they’ve been dating as last year they dropped occasional photos and videos of someone who’s clearly very special to them.

On the Just A Little Shady podcast, they went further and talked about their boyfriend.

“My boyfriend, his name is Jase. He moved in with me like last year in December. It’s going really well.”

Stevie said the relationship started out as long-distance. Hailie remarked on how hard that must have been.

“It’s hard but I feel like if you really have a connection with someone, it can work, especially if you make time for it to work. It’s a hard thing, but it’s a lot easier and it’s worth it when you get to live together and actually experience those things. But yeah, it’s been really fun. It’s been a learning experience too. I’d say this is my first like serious relationship in my adult life.”

Stevie shared several photos of Jase on their Instagram in late 2022, but nothing since that time. They are more active on TikTok, which also has a link to their cute, online art store.

However, following yesterday’s podcast, Stevie posted more photos of Jase to Instagram last night and wished him a happy birthday.

“Happiest birthday my love … you’re the brightest star in the sky.”

Stevie came out as genderfluid in a TikTok video in 2021, during which they announced they’d chosen the name Stevie for themselves. Eminem has mentioned their adopted child in past lyrics, but using the name they previously used.

In another part of the interview, Hailie revealed how excited she was when Stevie was born.

“I was so happy to have a little sister,” the 27-year-old said, before joking, “Oh my god, am I going to get emotional? I’m old!”

“When you were born,” Hailie told Stevie, “I was like, “A baby for me! It’s mine!'”

Hailie praised Stevie for appearing unfazed about their famous, unconventional family, and also for their love of animals.

“When we were growing up, our papa had a Great Dane and we were obsessed,” Hailie recalled her sibling. “They’re the sweetest dogs in the world but they’re just so huge. I remember we fell in love with papa’s dog, Timber, and then—when you got Duke—we were like, ‘Where are we gonna put this horse because they’re so big!'”
