She was immortalized in a song when she was just a baby, and now Eminem's daughter, Hailie, is famous at her high school.

The rapper's daughter was crowned homecoming queen of Chippewa Valley High School on Friday during a football game in Clinton Township, Mich., the Macomb Daily reports.

Students and faculty chose the 17-year-old – who's described by those who know her as a "smart, athletic and caring young woman" – as their queen after a vote.

The teen's dad, Eminem, 40, (aka Marshall Mathers III), watched the coronation from a classroom at the school so as not to take the attention away from his daughter.

"Hailie came out with her mother Kim [Scott] when she was introduced with all the other kids but her father watched from inside the school because he didn't want to cause a scene – he wanted Hailie to have her own moment," one parent, who asked not to be identified, tells the paper.

"He opened the door and looked out like – 'That's my daughter!' He just looked like a proud father," the parent added.

Eminem and Scott divorced for the second time in 2006, but agreed to share custody of their daughter.
