Eminem and wife reunite

12/07/2005 at 01:03 AM ET

In the day and age where it seems like everyone  famous is divorcing, one celebrity is giving his marriage a second chance… Eminem.

Rapper Eminem announced that he and his ex-wife Kimberly Mathers are going to try and salvage their relationship. 

"We have reconciled and are probably going to remarry," Eminem told  Detroit radio station WKQI-FM’s "Mojo in the Morning" show.

The couple , who had a nasty divorce, which was finalized in 2001, have one daughter, Haley Jade. They married in 1999.

Note: I just have to say I just love this guy. No matter how he may be portrayed by his music, he is a stand up guy. He is dedicated to raising his daughter, his wife’s niece, and his wife’s child with another man ( who was born in the middle of their disputes).  How many guys would do that?

I think his daughter’s name is spelled Hailie Jade. I know it’s spelled differently than you usually see it spelled.

Like or hate his music, he is one hell of a role model kind of dad .. prolly like the one he wished he had growing up. Good for him.

I agree. I’d have to say Eminem is doing his best to have the family he never did. The fact that he’d look after his wife’s child from another man goes to show how far he is willing to go to make things work. Good for him, see critics, he isnt so bad!

well, i never liked his music, with the exception of the one song from 8 Mile that did so well, but he loves his daughter and obviously wants his family together. Hope it works out this time.

I totally agree. When I first heard about his so-called retirement, I thought he was becomming one of those celebs that retires and then comes out of retirement over and over just to generate publicity. But then I watched the MTV show about his greatest hits album, and it’s clear that he is taking a break from the business because he takes his commitment to his family seriously and knows that is where he needs to devote his energy. Good for him.
