Alaina Scott has announced her engagement to boyfriend of seven years Matt Moeller in a series of photos posted to Instagram showing him on one knee in a romantic rooftop proposal at the Monarch Club in Detroit.

Alaina is rapper Eminem’s niece, but he adopted her from her biological mother Dawn Scott, who was the twin sister of his ex-wife Kim Scott. Dawn Scott died of a suspected drug overdose in 2016.

He revealed in a 2004 Rolling Stone interview that he and Kim had joint custody of his daughter Hailie Jade Scott, and he had sole custody of Alaina. He said “my niece has been a part of my life ever since she was born. Me and Kim pretty much had her, she’d live with us wherever we was at.”

Eminem referenced Scott in his 2004 single “Mockingbird” with the affectionate nickname “Lainie,” also rapping, “Yeah, but he loves you girl and you better know it / We’re all we got in this world.”

Scott seemed elated in the Instagram caption she wrote, reading in part, “yes a hundred times over. I LOVE YOU.”
