On the Feb. 3 episode of Just a Little Shady, Nathan Mathers stopped by Hailie Jade’s podcast to reflect on what it was like growing up with Eminem.





To introduce Nathan, Em’s daughter provided some context about her family, “For those of you who may not know, Nate is my uncle – my dad’s younger brother – but also we kind of grew up together because Nate lived with us for a while when I was young, so he’s kind of like a ‘bruncle.’ I would say brother-uncle. … You definitely act younger than your age, I always think that. … We are closer in age than you are to [my] dad, but still, I never realize how much older you are than me because I feel like you are like a brother.”




Nathan is 14 years younger than Eminem and 12 years older than Jade, and when it comes to childhood memories, Nathan had nothing but good things to say about her superstar brother, “He was the best role model I could have had to help me be the dad that I am today.”




“I started understanding a little more when reality would hit when I would start seeing him on TV and going to shows and all the signatures and crazy people. I’m like, ‘All right, well, this is real,'” he added.


And earlier this month, Hailey announced her engagement to longtime boyfriend Evan McClintock.
