    It's Eminem's kids that keep him from "relapsing" and staying on the road to Recovery. The rapper, 37, told New York Times that he was hoovering 20 pills per day into his mouth but that he has been sober for the past two years of his life, without the assistance of a rehab center. That's what his kids are for! He said, "I felt like Bugs Bunny in rehab," he says. "When Bugs Bunny walks into rehab, people are going to turn and look. People at rehab were stealing my hats and pens and notebooks and asking for autographs. I couldn't concentrate on my problem." He said his kids were his salvation, admitting, "I love them so much and they've helped me through so many things." Em has a biological daughter, Hailie Jade, and two adopted daughters, Lainey and Whitney.

    Em admitted he sees a counselor once a week and that he has grown up because of it.

    Recovery hits stores June 21, a day before it's originally intended release date.

    How cool would it be if Em was your dad?
