2. Eminem Adopted Whitney so That She Could Have a Better Life
Eminem legally adopted Whitney because of her relationship with his ex-wife when they got back together in 2006 but it didn't last.

4. Eminem is an Amazing Father and Loves His Daughters Equally
Although Whitney is not Eminem's biological daughter, he loves her the same as his other daughters. This can be assumed from his songs as he mentions them all the time.

Whitney does not have any real siblings but she has two sisters named Hailie Mathers and Alaina Mathers; Hailie is Eminem's only biological daughter and Alaina is Eminem's ex-wife's sisters' daughter. Despite them not being actual siblings, they are very close to each other. They hang out all the time, they were in attendance in Eminem’s show at the Governors Ball in June 2018 and were seen holding hands and enjoying. They frequently share cute photos online. Whitney is closer to Hailie than Alaina and looks up to her.
6. Whitney and Alaina do Not Share a Parent
Eminem adopted Alaina in 2002. Alaina was born in 1993 and is his oldest daughter. She is the daughter of his ex-wife Kim’s twin sister Dawn Scott. Not much is known about her biological father. Dawn died of a heroin drug overdose in 2016. She was a drug addict, and Eminem thought it would be best if he took responsibility for Alaina.

Eminem also tries to gove her a normal life as much as possible so that she can enjoy her childhood without rumors and controversies.
9. She is Bisexual
Whitney confirmed this on her Instagram account. She said it was really hard for her to talk about this as a lot of people know about her, but she feels safe to do this in 2019. We don't know much about her dating life as Eminem has kept her away from media to protect her.

She loves animals and frequently posts photos of her with her pet reptiles. Eminem is also known to love animals, maybe he is the one who influenced her love for animals.
