Let’s start from the beginning here so we don’t lose one another in this story.
First, Joe Biden has four children, two sons, Hunter and Beau, and two daughters, Naomi and Ashley. Biden’s son Beau died tragically in 2015 at the age of 46 after a battle with brain cancer. He was survived by his wife, Hallie Biden, and their three children.
Meanwhile, Hunter Biden, an attorney, and his wife Kathleen Biden separated in fall 2015.
Flash forward to today, when Hunter Biden announced that he and Hallie Biden (Beau’s widow) have found love with one another.
In a statement to Page Six, Hunter explained, “Hallie and I are incredibly lucky to have found the love and support we have for each other in such a difficult time, and that’s been obvious to the people who love us most. We’ve been so lucky to have family and friends who have supported us every step of the way.”

Meanwhile, Former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, reiterated the family’s support in a separate statement: “We are all lucky that Hunter and Hallie found each other as they were putting their lives together again after such sadness. They have mine and Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them.”
The former vice president knows what it means to lose a spouse. Joe Biden lost his first wife and 13-month-old daughter Naomi in a car crash in 1972.
Vice President Biden cited his son Beau’s death as one of the main reasons he chose not to run for president in 2016.
This would make a fantastic lifetime move, just sayin’. This family clearly knows how to make it through tragedy and have each other’s backs.
